Memory Verse

Sometimes life can be tough. Decisions need to be made, but it's not clear which one is the better. Relationship-needs need to be met, but they aren't being met the way we think they should be. Communication needs to happen, but the time and opportunities don't arise. Our minds need rest and time to think things through, but the world doesn't stop for us to sit and think about things, it just keeps on going without you. You sit down to pray, but you can't think of the right words. Work is stressful, and the problem doesn't seem to have a solution. BUT, it's okay. It is o.k.a.y. BECAUSE...

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." -Jesus. (John 16:33)

And that is going to be my memory verse right now.

I am thankful for...

by Nancie J. Carmody

...the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.
...the taxes I pay because it means I'm employed.
...the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.
...a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home. shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.
...the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking.
...all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech. huge heating bill because it means I am warm.
...the alarm that goes off in the early morning because it means I am alive.
...the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means I can hear.
...the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby.
...weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been productive.

Easter eggs

Dying Easter eggs, naturally! With blueberries, raspberries, and coffee,
then spread a little vegetable oil on the finished product to make them shine.

Color Combo

I love the color combo here, the orange with the purple, and the sunlight shining in. It's just lovely. Looking forward to the day when I can decorate my own little home! :)
