Face Forward

Don't you just hate when Satan does that?
And don't you just cringe when you don't really see it coming?
The way he sidles and slithers and slaps your face so hard you fall?
Don't you detest when you agree with him and all his dirty ways?
When you find yourself in the slough of despond and wonder....
"How in all the world did I get down here?"

And don't you just love the way all those verses show up on your printer?
And how "nobody" knows where they came from?

"And, Behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last."  Luke 13:30

"God chooses the weak things of the world to shame the strong."  1 Corinthians 1:27b

"But you are not to be like that.  Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves."  Luke 22:26

"But God chooses foolish things to shame the wise."  1 Corinthians 1:27a

Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed, than to share plunder with the proud. -Proverbs 16:18

Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord!

-For dear friends close by to see me through.
-For a friend far away who holds me in hands I've never held.  Praying.
-For a daughter's arms and words of hope and encouragement.
-For a son's email rising up to call me blessed.
-For the tears that had to fall so we can move on, yes?
-For ribs in the crockpot making all my men smile like NUTS!
-For weekly chats with 212.
-For the amazing fragrance of spring all around us!
-For the rain.
-For Wendy's baby getting closer and closer.
-For pictures.
-For The Boy making me laugh, and the Kitten on my lap.
-For the new study on diligence.
-For God and Grace and Goodness and laughter.
-For His sustaining and comforting Word.
For the Word.
For the Word.
For the Word.
