This photo is of two of my dearest friends taken down by the lake near their home several years ago. When I was editing this shot, something made me put it in black and white, add some highlights, high definition and an ominous sky.
I wondered for a good while why I had felt the need to do that. Then I saw it. These two have weathered through many a storm together, but their strong faith and love of God has brought them through each and every one, safely to the other side.
They know that with putting Him first in their lives and marriage, there is NOTHING they can't get through or accomplish together! 💕
"A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken!"
Today was a busy day. I went to a Mary & Martha party given by two of my dear friends, picked up Skippy up at Bean's house after a week of grandpuppy sitting and then to Lowe's to look for flooring, as well as a few other things. We enjoyed the day and took advantage of this GORGEOUS weather and dined alfresco at CHECKER'S.
I am so thankful to have been able to spend most of today with these two amazing men.
On a morning I get to have some coffee, I like to pick a special mug. Sometimes there's no rhyme or reason as to which one I pick, however, this morning I picked a mug my sister Cathy recently gave me.
I was extremely tired so I picked this one, which seemed fitting at the time. As I was making my coffee, that scene from FINDING NEMO kept playing over in my head. After putting my creamer in, I clutched my coffee and literally said out loud, MINE!!! MINE!!! MINE!!! That's how I felt about my coffee today.....don't anyone touch it, it's MINE!!! Scary thing is, I was alone.
I don't know about you, but in the total business of life and all that goes on, some days I really wonder who I am and what my purpose is. I know I'm a daughter, a wife, Mom, Nana, etc, but sometimes I feel like I should be more, like I'm not enough. Have you ever felt that way?
As I sat there this morning looking at my mug, I couldn't figure out why those words, MINE!!! MINE!!! MINE!!! kept tugging at my heart. Then a scripture I have heard so many times, resonated so deeply with me......Isaiah 43:1
"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are
MINE!" .....MINE!! MINE!!
I love it how God can show us Himself and how He much
