Uncertain Or Difficult Times

Dealing with difficult or uncertain times? 

"A surgery may fail, but God’s compassions will not. A treatment may fail, but God’s compassions will not. A relationship may fail, but God’s compassions will not. A dream may fail, but God’s compassions will not. My friend, no matter what you’re facing, God cares for you and will carry you. It may not be OK, but, because of the Lord’s great love, you will be OK..." - Jennifer Rothschild

Great blog to read:  

You Will Be Ok

Weekend Challenge

Weekend challenge: Enjoy something of nature this weekend....a walk outside; listen to the birds sing; go sit by a lake, river, stream, or ocean and just be quiet; take in a sunrise and/or sunset; go geocaching; take a bike ride.

While taking in nature, leave your phone and electronic devices alone! Turn them off, don't take them with you. Experience REAL LIFE, not virtual life. 

If you take the challenge, share here what you did.

The Voices In Your Head

Which voices are you paying the closest attention to today?  Take time to listen to what God has to say.  Also, take intentional time to listen to your spouse, your children, your parents, your friends.  Moments and words are precious, don't take them for granted.  Once they are gone, they are gone.

Reach Out and Help Others

As you grow older, 

you will discover 

that you have 

two hands.

One for helping yourself, 

the other for helping others.

Speak Life

Do your words speak life or death? 

Do you encourage or discourage, lift up or put down?  

Words cut, hurt, destroy OR words inspire, help, build up.  

with care, 

use wisdom, 

and speak in love.  

To others.  

To yourself.
