Monday Scripture & Words of Wisdom

"I've always thought anyone can make money.
Making a life worth living, that's the real test."
--ROBERT FULGHUM, American essayist--

"Believe there is a great power silently working all things for good,
behave yourself,
and never mind the rest."
Beatrix Potter

"For He Who is almighty has done great things for me -- and holy is His name."
Luke 1:51

As you learn more and more how God works, you will learn how to do your work.
We pray that you will have the strength
 to stick it out over the long haul---not the grim strength of gritting your teeth
but the glory-strength God gives.
It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy,
thanking the Father who makes us strong enough to take part
in everything bright and beautiful that he has for us.
Colossians 1: 11-12 The Message

May you have a blessed week.


  1. Beautiful pictures of the Ohio countryside!

  2. The "glory-strength" is the best kind of strength!

    Blessings for your week. Loving the Beatrix Potter quotes and photos.

  3. Love that Beatrix Potter quote, as well (I'd never read it before.) Also loving those lavender colors in your spring landscapes. Hoping your week is filled with all things bright and beautiful...

  4. "...not the grim strength of gritting your teeth" no fun atall. only old shits grit their teeth. children never grit their teeth...unless they are being a mean lion.

  5. Holy is His name. Nothing else counts hardly at all ever and ever period. Get the gist?
