Sunday Scripture

I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding .For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ returns. May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation –the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ  - for this will bring much praise and Glory to God.

Philippians 1:9 -12 (NLT)

Freedom ... Red, White, and Boom

"Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take a stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.

"The difference between friends and pets
is that friends we allow into our company, 
pets we allow into our solitude."

God's strength

The study: Gideon: Your weakness, God's Strength
Over the next few weeks, I’m a part of a Bible study that meets in a friend’s home. It is a safe place to laugh and cry.  

I love that as I grow closer to God, I also grow closer to my sisters in Christ. There is a sweet spiritual bond that God creates among believers. We share our burdens, our sorrows, struggles, and joy.  After study and prayer, we wait with hopeful anticipation to see  how God will answer our prayers.

Tasty Tuesday

Last Friday, I packed my bags, loaded up my car, put on my black and pink sunglasses and headed north.  I was ready for a mini adventure.  After months of planning and emails, I was looking forward to a road trip with girlfriends.

For the first part of the trip, I travel alone.  I love it. I don’t negotiate on the selection of music. Adjust the temperature of the car? No worries. I have no one to please but myself.  J

Things are going well. Until…. I get lost.  New road construction will always create havoc with an older GPS.  When all else fails, stop at a gas station and ask for directions.

I get distracted when I ask for directions.  I am listening intently to discern his accent. … I am sorry; I am trying to figure out your accent.   He smiles, “I am from Ethiopia.”

Now, back to the directions. I repeat them at least four times. Grateful I am a few miles away from my destination.

Yum, Tasty Tuesday ... a breakfast

Monday Musings

“ The cars we drive say a lot about us.”
Alexandra Paul

Classic cars are old, yet they seem new. Classic lines, craftsmanship, and attention to detail are the hallmarks of antique cars. Cars restored often reflect the beauty and glory of a by gone era.

 Early automotive assembly lines created the best of America in the cars and the people who worked on the cars. Hard working and diligent workers most often would purchase the cars they built.

 Who is driving this baby blue Thunderbird?  A newlywed couple. The bride and groom were driving down a historic street in Cincinnati.

At this stoplight, we joined others congratulating this couple.  The groom is a little difficult to see yet, he is looking quite dapper.
