Everywhere I turn today I came struck by this verse. Apparently the Lord wants me to use it for His good.

"The glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord." 1 Kings 8:11

With Spring wanting to spring forth I am struck by the beauty and simplicity of this verse. I think in all we do we need to use our talents and give all the glory to the Lord.
I was filled with wonder and amazement during the royal wedding but all in all I am very happy to be who I am! I have lived a life of happiness and sadness. I have built a home and a marriage and a beautiful phamily. I am very content  at my age in serving the Lord daily. He seems to come to me with a request each day. So I am learning how to serve Him more properly than I can serve this messy world we live in.

I hope today you have some hope and encouragement from this.

This is my life and I love it! Please stop by Charlotte and Ginger's and join this weekly encouragement. It just might fill your cup!

It is nice to witness beautiful, happy and grand historic events and daydream about that life but never could I, or would I give up what I have. I love the simplicity of it all. God guided me when I carved out my life and I must say he gave me a good life.
Have a blessed week, Sue

Thank you for your post today. I am always laying a guilt trip on myself because I am so guilty of wasting the talents God had blessed me with. Have a wonderful day, Nan
PS, I watched the wedding too and had the same feeling, perfect, from start to finish.

Anne, I loved seeing your pictures. The royal wedding was indeed beautiful, but real beauty lies in the ordinary. I think they sometimes wish for that. Ann

That verse is probably often overlooked, but you are correct, there is such beauty and simplicity in it.
