Catching up....

It's Good Friday....never understood that name for all that it means, but it's A good Friday, none the less....

Catching up on life today...I lost Wed. to volunteering, and yesterday to working ON the computer (not just working with the computer) and now that things are updated and back on track (we hope), I'm back to this blog.

I love this:
Pro. 20:
3 Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling.
Boy, it took me a LONG time to learn that....consider that my family "nick-name" as an adolescent was "Philadelphia Lawyer" as I'd argue ANY point for the sake of an argument. It's no wonder I despise arguing now....nothing to be gained.

24 The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?
I'm trying to learn this now...STILL. I am really trying to wait on Him, for Him to show the next step in my life, and don't understand WHY I don't see the plan, but DO trust Him to handle it.

Pro. 21:
3 The Lord is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer him sacrifices.
SO true!

9 It’s better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a quarrelsome wife in a lovely home.
HOW VERY TRUE!! I've tried hard not to be quarrelsome, since our home now is lovely....

19 It’s better to live alone in the desert than with a quarrelsome, complaining wife.
And this too...

23 Watch your tongue and keep your mouth shut, and you will stay out of trouble.
(A harder lesson for me to remember...LOL)

And I can't remember what book we went to next...Miss J, I need your help there.... :D
I think that I'll work on the new memory verse for small group (is there a tune for this one too?) and I have to run to the store...I know it's beautiful out, but I'm so draggy for some reason. I could lay down and take a nap right now!! sigh. If it were just a bit warmer out, I could be a cat and take a nap in the sunshine!

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
