You know things are chaotic when your calendar is upside down!
Seriously, that was my desk recently. It’s not better, yet. But I am working on it. It seems when I try to get organized or clean, I tend to make a mess. It just works that way. I kinda ‘splode. Everywhere. Sometimes I find my way back to sanity. Other times I just close the door. Did you ever just wish that one of those Home Improvement Extreme Makeover Shows would knock on your door and say “Poof”, and all of the clutter would be gone? Friends, that horrifies me, all my ideas are in that mess!
Last week my life felt full.
I just raised my hands and face to Heaven, receiving graciously.
Every single gift as it was poured out, like oil, spilling over my head.
Running down my cheeks.
I felt no shame, as I licked my lips, smiling.
Thank you, Lord.
One year older.
One year more blessed.
One year wiser.
Tomatoes and Basil from our garden. Thank you, Lord.
Peaches (gently tossed with a touch of lime and sugar) served in Martini glasses with fresh Mint (from our garden) Thank you, Lord.
My sweet Moms In Prayer friends from New Hampshire.
I love these ladies and am loved by them
Thank you, Jesus!
Thank you Starbucks- I look forward to my free drink each year!
So I took it here and had myself a fabulous morning.
I brought a Good Book!
My Girl gave me a wonderful pedicure and my Amazon book order had just arrived! Talk about divine timing. I finally got my hands on The Jesus Storybook Bible and because of this combination enjoyed the pampering of my feet from the soles right to the soul!
but be warned- he feels that the person who wrote this recipe,
perhaps is not familiar with recipe writing or something to that degree.
It was delicious but I felt I should give you fair warning if you want to try it!
281. Sisters in Christ who pray faithfully for me 282. A husband who never ceases to amaze me 283. My sweet friend and SIC Pauline who spoke this beautiful truth: “Fellowship IS worship” Amen. 284. The daily surprises of God 285. The beauty of 4 seasons in New England 286. His Creation- continual source of inspiration, hope and beauty.
When people are deeply affected by the Word, they tell it to other people. God has willed that we should seek and find God’s living Word in the testimony of other Christians, in the mouths of human beings. Therefore, Christians need other Christians who speak God’s Word to them. They need them again and again when they become uncertain and disheartened. D.
