Rest

                       


Ahhhh... Friday.  Today we have on the agenda library time, pool time, friend time, and grocery day. It should be good.  I'm trying to be better about meal planning, and shopping smart. 

I've been in prayer a lot this week.  The political scene is just so... Abusive, maybe?  I know it is important to follow, but I find all the infighting and mud slinging distracting. 

So. Prayer.

International news is no better... Coups, terrorism, axe-slashing, drug doping. Heart breaking.

So. Prayer.

Family and friends, we have hope. We have prayer. We have a God who loves us. He declares we are free.  You just need to claim that.

Good, welcome news is Jesus who conquers death so that we may live.  It's free. It's a choice. 

He says come to Him, and He will give you rest. It's a promise.

Mourning.

Our hearts have been heavy this week.  Sunday, church day, God's day.  Actually all days are His, but this day, especially, has been special.  I've got a great church, with some great pastors, who in their wisdom decided to spend today's service in prayer, in praise, in worship, in mourning. 

I was reminded to take some moments to step out of the shoes of my perspective, and step into the shoes of those survivors of the violence that happened this week.  My circumstance and perspective are not the most important, or the most right, or the most relevant.  

As a Christian, I pray for the lives lost this week, and for the families and friends of those lives lost.  All lives are precious.  I was reminded that pro-life doesn't just mean in the womb.  We need to be pro-life for all lives.

Summer School

Summer School from Fredparent, too:)

Just Love

Amidst these uncertain times, One thing is true.  That is the love of God through Christ Jesus, our Lord.  

We do have trials, we do have hardships, we do experience loss.

And it hurts.

God, though, is for us. Everything works to the good of those who love the Lord, and it is for His glory. We can't possibly know the far reaching effects of the hardships we go through, that God uses to work for good.

It all comes down to this:  Love.


Love God first, love others second. That doesn't mean to agree, or to embrace things that go against God's word.  It means to love- love God, love others, trust God. Period. It's just love.
