"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future! "

Humility


Humility is perfect quietness of heart. It is to expect nothing, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or despised. It is to have a blessed home in the Lord, where I can go in and shut the door, and kneel to my Father in secret, and am at peace as in a deep see of calmness, when all around and above is trouble.

Hello Laura! I'm glad you like the video! The accent is so lovely! I love it too! It's the neapolitan accent, the typical southern one! So involving and funny!

Hugs!

Hi, Ladies~

I'm so glad to see all of you! :> )
I love seeing my friends visiting!

I have a homeschool blog, Hope, and have always loved the three columns. I had not been able to find a three column template that I like, so I decided to change one up a bit. The two column never seemed to have enough room. I hope you like the new look! :> )

Blessings~
Laura
