We hardly ever have time to do this. Today was no exception.
I did however prepare a special dinner, but my mom and the kids enjoyed it with
us. I set some time aside and while the kids played, we sat outside and talked.
We talked about whatever came up. Work mostly, but we also talked about a new
place, where we are looking at getting it and discussed a place that I saw
advertised in our local paper, so we decided that I would go look at it today,
and if I like it, to make arrangements for Hubby to see it Saturday after work.
I have grown to love these moments with my husband, moments of stillness or
general chatter. We have not spoken to each other like this in a very long time
but since I started the Love dare, this has almost become part of our daily routine
and how I love it!
Later he played a bit of guitar for us, showing me the new
cords he learned. He made lunch while I put the kids to bed, and we had an
early night ourselves, chatting bit more before we slept.
In my prayer and
devotion time I received the following scripture.
Paul, called to be an
apostle of Christ Jesus by the
will of God, and our
2 To the
church of God in
Corinth, to those sanctified in
Christ Jesus and called to be
his holy people, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and
and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
4 I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ
Jesus. 5 For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and
with all knowledge — 6 God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you. 7 Therefore you do not lack any spiritual
gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus
Christ to be revealed. 8 He will also keep you firm to the end, so
that you will be blameless on the
day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his
Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
I am so blessed with the scriptures I get every day. They
are so relevant to my current situation. And I am so thankful for every one of
you, helping me through this journey. It is a battle for me every day, but I’m
always reminded of 1 Timothy 6:12 “Fight
the good fight of the faith.” Our Christian walk is a fight, a fight in
which we win one battle at a time. To win this battle, we must have a never
surrender attitude! Thank you everyone, and above all thank you Christ!
I Corinthians was just what I needed to see this early morning, Peaches. Thank you so much. The way you are seeing the simple things, the craving of the ease...that is HIm at work. I know you know this. :) Blessings!
Or have a surrender to Christ attitude! LOL
