Word Filled Wednesday


















I find myself needing a reminder this week.
A reminder to be thankful and to praise God for his many, many blessings in my life.
A reminder to have a cheerful and loving heart.
A reminder to love my husband simply for being the wonderful man that he is, and not to get caught up in and brought down by all of my expectatations. I set impossible standards for my family. How can we not fall short once in a while?
A reminder that my plans are not what's important here. God will do things his way and in his own time.  This verse reminded  me of the things that I should be focused on. Isn't it great that we can pick up the Bible, and in a few short verses, be back on track again? God is good!
For an explanation of Word Filled Wednesday go here. To see more, go here.

Hi again April...had to come back and quickly say I love your kids and your puppy and Molly too. Mylo's a bit scary... so much bigger than your pup! Great work on the tortilla and you're so right! Unbelievable..you made bagels and by hand.
WOW! Good job to your helpers too! Look at all they're learning. I was just trying to get a look around!
