Hi and welcome to my post for Spiritual Sunday! I am very late today. I have so many things going on and my housework is slipping and my house is a mess and I am in need of a personal maid! HeeHee! But I want to share a simple verse today that packs a wallop of a punch! It is:
I love my bloggy friends! But I know I have lost a few friends because I suppose no one is suppose to express their truly feelings here. I can't do that! I love the Lord and each day I struggle because I feel like I am not a good example of a Christian and than something happens in my life and I know the Lord is listening and He does care for me.Set your mind on things above, not on things of this earth. Colossians 3:2
I love the giveaways here! I see so much creative talent and so many awesome people that I wish I could win everything I comment on but life does not work that way and I learned long ago in parochial school that we have to share! So even though I love my cool winnings I will never covet them. When the hubby and I were first married and life threw curve balls at us we lost our first home and a nice car we owned. We lost our car and home because of circumstances not because we had a good time and left a pile of bills! Life happened to us and we lost jobs and health and things happen. It was then that I learned not to covet anything because it can be snatched from your grasp quicker then you can blink! So today I had to speak my mind.
I have a very sweet and dear friend here in blogland. She is awesome and she does not participate in giveaways because she likes the simplistic lifestyle. I admire her. I like the simple things in life. I have found more comfort in them then things. As I look back on my life, it has been a simple one. Yet we have always supported each other and stuck together through good times and bad. So I need to say I love winning but I love knowing all of you more and I have a silly sense of humor and I sometime say silly things. I just want to set that record straight!
I know many people who have many material things. Yet they have no joy in their lives. They are constantly worried about something else. I love my dolls but if I had to sell them to eat and feed the phamily I would turn my back on them in a moment!
I just want to remind everyone today to remember the truly important stuff and don't get too involved in the material aspect of life!
Please stop by here and thank Charlotte and Ginger for pulling this post together each week with such grace and kindness. I enjoy knowing each one of you and I hope you will continue to join me here and stop by for some friendship and fun!
Today my prayer list includes Lois, Randy, Bea, Mike, Clayton, Gabe, Lance, Toby, Nick. Remember to pray for our military personnel all over this great big world! Pray for each other and pray for myself and my phamily too. I do appreciate it.
Happy Labor Day!
