I am wearing.................Still in my pj's

I am creating..............A menu for the next week

I am going.................To be heading to the grocery store today

I am reading................A new devotional "A Quiet Place of Rest"

Saddened today

Today I am saddened.............normally I write about upbeat things but I feel the need to share today what's on my heart. I am saddened for my daughter.........you see we attend a fairly big church (about 600) and we do have to travel to get there.............about 25 minutes one way. The travel part doesn't really bother us except when it comes to making friends. You see most everyone lives close to church so it's easy for them to get together. My daughter gets her feelings hurt when she sees her friends getting together and she gets left out. I don't know what to do about it.............it really saddens me when I see her hurt.

Has anyone experienced this and what did you do or are doing about it?

A verse to ponder this morning

… let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.

~ Hebrews 12:1

Wanted to share.

A part of my devotion this morning. I have been going through some things and just been getting alone with God and working through them feeling hurt and rejected. What I know is that "No one understands likes Jesus"

No one understands like Jesus. He's a friend beyond compare; meet Him at the throne of mercy; He is waiting for you there.

No one understand like Jesus; ev'ry woe he sees and feels; tenderly. He whispers comfort, and the broken heart He heals.

N one understands like Jesus when the foes of life assail; you should never be discouraged; Jesus cares and will not fail.

No one understands like Jesus when you falter on the way; tho you fail Him, sadly fail Him, He will pardon you today.

No one understands like Jesus when the days are dark and grim; no one is so near, so dear as Jesus--cast your ev'ry care on Him.

That spoke to me so much this morning. I know there are times in my life when I think no one understands but the truth of the matter is...............Jesus does. He cares more than we think. We just need to turn our struggles over to Him.

I pray that this speaks to someone and they feel comfort in the arms of Jesus.

This is the day the Lord has made

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

~ Romans 8:28

Isn't it so comforting to know that the Lord works all things out for our good............even know we wonder sometimes. God is good. Have a wonderful day in the Lord!
