Here's a good thought....
"Jesus didn’t hover over life from up high. He came down to gritty, sandy, soil earth to walk with us, among us, within us. And he offers himself as our water – the living kind – not to douse on our emergencies but to satisfy our souls in quietness and in strength."
- Emily P. Freeman
And here's another good thought:
“When we become aware that we do not have to escape our pains, but that we can mobilize them into a common search for life, those very pains are transformed from expressions of despair into signs of hope.”
- Henri Nouwen
I came across both of those quotes recently and LOVED them.
On a different note, tonight I went to a meeting about giving to a church (our church) because the church needs more space (a new building). It was a GREAT meeting.
Here's a picture of the hostess of the meeting, Julie, and her sweet pug... who's called 'Pug'...
She is beautiful inside and out.
Here's our pastor, Doug, leading the meeting...
Talking about money and church can be tricky, for sure.
(I didn't feel weird at this meeting, so Doug did a great job!)
On a different note, my mother and I went down to Fairfield, TX yesterday to see one of my very best childhood friends, Dottie....
Please, please, please pray for her.... however you want.
I'm praying that God will take care of her... and give her peace.
She is so sweet, so very sweet, even in the midst of Alzheimer's.
Thank you for praying.
