Bible readers who have read the bible know about Solomon and his father David. The action of Solomon is what todays our daily bread devotional is about. Yet, it is a good action, one to be followed unlike his actions … Continue reading
Sometimes life happens.
Things get in the way of you accomplishing your plans, your plans change or you have to take a detour. Life happens. For example, in April, my sister was hospitalized and visiting her daily was something that kept me from exercising, saving money, and working to get things done at home. This that I had planned to do.

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
1 Timothy 6:17 NIV
I used to dream of being a woman that cooked great meals
A woman that worked with her hands
A woman with great friends, a husband, and children
A house pecked with children
A home of hospitality
I liked the homes and gardens spread throughout the Better Homes & Gardens magazine
Every picture of a lighted room
The living room, kitchen, bathroom
I think only recently the bedroom
All rooms with breathing space
Tidy and organized
Tidy and organizations, because that’s how I liked things
But I realized, a home with children
Isn’t always so and span
My grandmother’s home was ALWAYS spotless
She worked in a hospital
All get children were grown
And she had gran kids
Even so get home was still spotless
It was also cold,
Cold and clean
So I dreamed of a beautiful house
One to share
A family that expressed God’s love – everywhere & to everyone
A family that was hospitable
A God glorifying marriage
I was younger than 23
I have seen and believe
God can do it
He can do anything
He answers prayers
There’s no reason for me to think or believe that He does not answer
Our dies not fulfill the dies of our hearts
what happened to, “ask what you will that your joy may be full,” ?
So at the beginning of this post I shared dreams and things that I was happy about or had joy about, at 23, for some reason it seems to have changed.
Part of me wants to go back.
But so much has changed
Life moves on
Lord, help me to adjust and move forward, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Seasons don’t last forever. That sparks a flicker or more of hope for the person that is going through a difficult season in life. However, if life looks perfect right now, the thought of the current season not lasting forever puts a temporary down pour on things.
Acts 20:35. It seems like I always knew about the latter part of this verse(it is better to give than to receive), but I didn’t know where it was in the Bible. Now that I’ve found it the words have been rooted in me and I’m inspired to give (that is without looking for anything in return 😉 )
“I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” Acts 20:35
