*Good morning sisters
Special prayer request ladies: there is a construction strike here…and it's getting a little nasty. Even the guys who aren't unionized are getting bullied by those who are! They are starting our garage tomorrow and my BIL (our contractor) said he hoped no one came here to make trouble…so please pray for protection all around.thanks!
First day of summer…a little bit of ahhh even if I am still working. I've had a lot of absences and now both my teens are home to lend a hand so it makes things a lot easier. I have 1 week left until my real vacay. (first two of July)
Oli gets his results Wednesday…Im praying for God's will and that if it is to teach Oli a lesson in responsibility by redoing his secondary two (grade 8) that I am able to accept it. Thank You Ladies for the prayers…I really appreciate it and I FEEL that it has made a difference. I also told Oli that you ladies are praying
Two verses today that go hand in hand.
Colossians 4: 5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
1 Peter 3:5
These verses are something I try to always keep in mind. I am surrounded by non-christians with whom I have a daily relationship: all the daycare parents and my daycare colleagues…I try and look for doors that God has opened for me. My closest daycare colleague even went to a conference at a church with me last month. She's very 'spiritual' but in a more of a you're ok, I'm ok type of way. I keep praying that she sees God is good and that not all roads lead to heaven…
Father, you didn't save us to sit back on not share what you have so freely given…Father show us those doors, provide words for the opportunities you give us. Lord, fill our mouths and let us speak when you want us to. Thank You for giving us your Holy Spirit to guide us through our days. thank You Lord for giving us grace!
Lord thank You for taking care of Erika and giving her the strength to abstain. Nothing should control us. Thank you Father for Steph…please bless and protect her…even down to the hairs on her head. THank you Father that you love each of us. We want to stop and be thankful for everything we have. *****************
