Thanks to the ladies who sent me some love yesterday! I so needed to get to my computer this morning to see comments that need moderating.
We're laying low today......taking care of laundry and housework in prep for me trip. I'm trying to put together a Christmas/birthday list for my family as well as get some more blogging done but I wanted to share a revelation and encouragement that God gave me this morning.
Almost every morning, I read the Psalms and Proverb of the day out loud while I feed Denay breakfast. There is so much wisdom packed into those two books and I love having that read aloud in my house. The system (that I learned in youth group years ago) is to start in Psalms and read the chapter that corresponds to the days date then keep adding 30 until you can add anymore. So today I started with Psalm 26 then read Psalm 56, then 86, then 116 then 146 and then I jump over to Proverbs and read chapter 26. I would recommend it if you need more wisdom in your life, I know I do!
Anyways, even though they aren't really connected, I always find a theme between all these random chapters. This morning God made it very clear that he is gracious and compassionate. The simply divine truth of those two words has been such a blessing in the few hours I've been up and at this day.
We serve a God that is faithfully gracious and always compassionate.
Thank you Father!

Oh, I've never heard of that tip about reading the Psalms and Proverbs. Something I'm going to put into practice. I have been hearing so many wonderful verses from Proverbs, totally practical for life!

Thanks for the tip! Enjoy your Monday.

I'm still enjoying hearing your thoughts from afar! But I have especially loved looking through your pictures! What a gift! I'm hoping one day I can hire you myself.
