This week it hit 96 degrees. On May 10th. In Iowa. THAT'S CRAZY. I sure am not complaining tho.

Because the previous week it was 46 degrees. I love the heat. I love the sun. I love sunburns that turn into tans.

Life is good. God is even BETTER.

Summer is approaching. Life is getting busier now that the weather is nice. But I don't mind. I have been in awe watching as God works in me and in my life. I have been thankful that He is showing me what needs work and starts there.

Somedays it feels like just too much. But God reminds me then that, "He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus".


(something i read the other day that is a good reminder for me, thought i'd share).

Is it the custom of your life to draw aside daily to a quiet place for fellowship with your Heavenly Father? He wants you to enjoy Him - alone. He waits for you to come. He promised if you will draw near to Him then He will draw near to you. Do other things rob you of this blessed privilege? You can began again to set necessary time alone just for Him.


"Unforgiveness sounds like this: "You owe me! I'm going to make you pay by hating you, by slandering you, by returning in kind, by recruiting other people to my bitterness. I'm holding this over you!" -James McDonald

{I read this, this morning. Being constantly reminded to forgive just as Christ forgave me. When forgiveness is put in the above words...wow...forgiveness is the only choice I have}.

"Don't get stuck looking at your circumstances....focus on CHRIST". -Robert Baltodano

{It's amazing how when I stop looking at that which is bothering me/overtaking my thoughts and mind how when I give it to God and start praying about it - a peace surprasses it all}.

"Religion = man trying to reach God. Christianity = God reaching man". -Chuck Smith

{God reaches for me and for you, oh happy day}!
