"This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24
I woke up in a bit of a panic this morning.
Yesterday a friend called me and said she wants to come to our church today! We'd talked about it before and I'm so excited about her coming. But I dreamed that we overslept, and when we woke up it was already after 11 and church had already started! Not only did sheer panic set in, but I felt horrible because here I'd invited her and told her I'd be watching and then I wasn't even there. Thankfully, when I woke up for real this morning, and looked at the clock it was only 7 am. :) What a dumb dream!!!!!!!!!
This is the day which the LORD hath made; I'm rejoicing and glad! I'm so happy today's the Sabbath, and happy I didn't really let my friend down as I did in my dream. lol Another JOY that I'm happy about is: While standing at the kitchen sink this morning, and glancing out the window; I saw my very first hummingbird of Spring perched on the fence near the feeder! Time to mix up more hummingbird juice. I'll be doing this the old fashioned way: 4 cups water, 1 cup sugar. (Thankyou Denise for reminding me that many of the prepared nectars have food coloring in them which are supposed to be harmful; I'd truly forgotten!)
It's time to get ready for church. Quickly; I want to share two verses that are in my journal this morning. One was brought to my heart from my new friend Kelley. (Isn't it cool when God uses people in our lives to help us on our journey?) The verse is Proverbs 16:24 "Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."
The second, came from opening my devotional this morning.
"Do everything without complaining or arguing, " Philippians 2:14
Can you just imagine having a victory over these simple yet powerful areas of life?
Speak sweetly, and quit complaining and arguing.
Time to iron a shirt for Myguy!
Complain? Nooooo way.
