Power

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Corinthians 12:9

Good Morning! It has been twenty-one days since I have written a post so this one must be coming with some power!!! And today is February 29th so I won't be able to write on this day for four more years...smile!

Yesterday I managed to sandwich in a workout between carpool and work! Scheduling these days is quite challenging, however, I have discovered that there was something missing on the seemingly busy schedule.....ME! So, I am putting myself back on the schedule and deliberately choosing to take care of myself. Just sounds silly, but oh my why has it taken me thirty-nine years to get that one. It is so evident in every single, solitary part of this life of mine!Let's just say God is doing some fine-tuning and much of that has been VERY eye opening, even heartbreaking at moments. That's where today's verse comes in and covers me like a heated blanket..."My g…

Paths

"He will teach us about His ways so we may walk in His paths." Micah 4:2

I want to walk, keep walking, learning the Lord's ways, even when they are misunderstood because I know that I am being taught by the best, Him.

"Pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart." 2 Timothy 2:22 Good afternoon!Here is a picture of Luke and I last weekend before we went on a "date to the Mother/Son Dinner at our church. It is our third one and I have to say it was by far the most fun, maybe because my date has matured a little (and sat still)??? No, they have all been special, but it was more about the time we spent together, the little moments...the excitement of getting dressed up in his suit,him opening the car door for me and then getting in the backseat (perfect date, cracks me up), pulling out my chair at the table, asking if he could get me some hot chocolate and then adding extra marshmellows,talking me into tasting dessert before the entree because it's just too tempting to have it sitting there in front of you, laughing at our answers to the quiz about how well we knew each other and hearing him say "ahhh,you nailed it",making sur…
