Happy Friday Friends~I'm doing the happy dance today because my man is boarding a plane for home. When I was younger I really hated his golf trips but I've gotten so used to them that they don't bother me anymore; however if it were constant I might have others feelings. I'm also happy because my basement wasn't flooded this morning; the water was right up to the window ledge but only a small amount came in despite the fact that I didn't run the pump after ten o'clock last night.
This morning in my inbox I had a daily writing that I want to share with you all. I don't mean to bring fear into your heart, but I already see the attitude that this is talking about.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns -- 5/20/11:
You have been called and set aside for My purposes alone. Do not allow the enemy's persuasion to lead you into worldliness and complacency. You are living in the time of the great falling away where apostasy abounds, and that which is ungodly and unholy will be presented as not only acceptable but desirable. Refuse to compromise the truth. My Word is your standard; measure everything by it, says the Lord.
Titus 2:11-14 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.
So what do you have planned for the weekend? I'm going to be vacuuming and making sure everything is spotless for my man, working on the border of the quilt top and maybe hitting a garage sale with my girlfriend-after all it is our standing Friday morning activity. Whatever you do today, find joy in your moments and share Life with others.
