Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.



Psalm 126:5-6

I'm Really Trying

I'm really trying lately to see the Joy in everything. Wow! That is really hard to do. It has been gloomy for the past week and I really would enjoy just a little peek at the sun. I think it would do us all some good. Let me just say I have not had a very cheerful or servant attitude and I seem to be raising my voice at the children almost everyday. I really don't like it when this happens and I have no excuse other than choosing to let my flesh rule instead of the Spirit. I am praying and believing that tomorrow will be a much better day than today.

Standing in belief with you Sister and echoing that same prayer!

I am right there with you, but thankfully we can go back to our children (and husbands=)...talking about myself here) and ask their forgiveness. I have had to do this more times than I count especially since Rebekah went to heaven.
Thinking of you....

My flesh gets the best of me sometimes too, I should say a lot of the time. I am thankful that children are so quick to forgive! and give me a gentle reminder.

Praying for you that you receive the gift of peace and calm. Your children love you and know you love them. You are human and fall once in a while. Talk to God. He hears.

It's hard to be as cheerful as you want to be when it is gloomy outside. Hope the sun shines soon!
