...and give thanks! Despite failed budgets, the Euro tanking, and Egypt & Syria in, in, words fail.
...and of course, Black Friday roaring toward us like a train (wreck?!). Yikes!
In the midst of mayhem and marketing, I will be thankful--I choose to be thankful!
-for the fact that God is sovereign and over all--my convoluted circumstances as well as the global turmoil
-for friends old and new, near and far
-for my church family spread all over the world
-for the pleasures and comforts of home(s)
-for beauty that God has created, or allowed man to, simply for it's own beauty
-for being able to do something just for the joy of it--like sewing!
-AND that all things Christmas were dropped off at the post office today!!!! Yes! Yay!
I must muse. Yesterday my devotional scripture was in Matthew 6 and vs 25 really struck me:
Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?
then 33: But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,
and all these things shall be added to you.
The Father knows what you need
Peace I leave with you...not as the world gives do I give to you
