Outside my window... overcast with occasional misty rain. It's 64°.
I am thankful... to have work that I love doing.
In the kitchen... grilled hot dogs, fresh veggies and dip, baked beans
I am wearing... White jean capris, teal tank top and hot pink cardi
I am reading... a new P. L. Gaus mystery, "The Names of Our Tears."
I am looking forward to... July 4th - love those days off!
I am learning how to fix my hair in a new style. Today went great, yesterday ... not so much.
Around the house...the rose bushes are blooming and the vincas are growing like crazy!
I am pondering...Romans 2:29 ....
Circumcision of the heart ... I'm thinking that means cutting away what's not needed. Is there something in your heart (your life) that is not needed? Would cutting it out make it more clearly to you and to others that you are a child of God. Would it bring you closer to Him?29 But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but from God.
Romans 2:29New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Are we more concerned about what would bring us praise from God rather than what makes men think well of us?
Something to ponder!
A favorite quote for today...
” Beware the barrenness of busyness.”… David Jeremiah, Turning Point Devotional, 06.18.13
I fall into this trap so easily - thinking that fruitfulness means being involved in many things, yet all those things keep me from being at the feet of Jesus ...
One of my favorite things... a text message from my daughters
A few plans for the rest of the week: a road trip on the 4th
A peek into my day...
I need a bench like this one at the home of Laura Ingalls Wilder to sit and ponder. I just know I'd get inspired!
Note: It's a sign of a too-busy life to post on Wednesday a post you started on Monday! My apologies for the lateness of this post.
