For Today... the last Monday of June, 2015
Outside my window... sunshine and gorgeous weather. It was 72° when I got up this morning. How I would have loved to go on a road trip instead of work today ....
I am thinking...of everything that happened this week, and wondering how I, as a Christian, should respond. One thing I know beyond a shadow of a doubt is that I am committed to living the first and greatest commandment, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind," and also, the second commandment: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
Does loving everyone mean ignoring their sin - or worse, support them in their sin? Of course, not. But rude, hateful and unloving comments will change no one's mind and even drive them further away.
The word says the world will know we are Christ-followers by our love. My prayer is that He will help me live this out by being loving and yet standing for truth.
I am thankful... God is with me every step of the way. He promised to be with me always - even to the end of the world (which looks closer every day.)
I am wearing... a fun teal, black, white and tan zebra top and black cropped pants. So comfy!
I am going... to Florida to visit my mom.
I am reading... "Double Cross" by DiAnn Mills
In my garden... my flowers are growing, and I pray they survive while I am gone.
In my kitchen... meatloaf has been requested so tonight's the night. I'm also making Easy Cheese Potatoes and Strawberry Mousse.
A favorite quote for today...
“Worship is not an experience. Worship is an act, and this takes discipline. We are to worship ''in spirit and in truth.'' Never mind about the feelings. We are to worship in spite of them.” ― Elisabeth Elliot (as seen on Facebook)
A peek into one of my days... on Saturday, Mr. Brody got his first haircut!
One of my favorite things... coming home to a clean kitchen. I especially like it when the sun is streaming in the windows on my clean shiny counter-tops. I always try to have the kitchen in order before I walk out the door in the morning.
From the board room... what I am trying out tonight ...
