IN THE WORLD:
* Driver plows through Time Square sidewalk
* Pippa Middleton to get married tomorrow
* Preds lose to Ducks in Game 4
* Preakness Stakes tomorrow
IN THE WORD:
This Week’s Verse: Colossians 3:22
Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord.
Beware of the tendency to ask the way when you know it perfectly well ~ Oswald Chambers
IN MY LIFE
Call it what you will, but it’s been a rough week for me emotionally. I know in our land of social media and Pinterest, it’s easy to portray perfection, but I’m here to tell you (in case you didn’t already know), my life isn’t perfect or easy. And I bet yours isn’t either…
Still, it reminds me to hold tight to what I wrote in my book: love isn’t a feeling, it’s an action. The same holds true for joy, kindness and just about every other emotion.
I was reminded of Ephraim in my quiet time this morning, which essentially means “fruitful in a time of suffering”. I’ve found that often my greatest lessons learned were during times of sorrow and suffering; so instead of trying to power through these times, I’m doing my best to sit still and listen.
I pray the same for you this weekend. As I always end, have a great day, make it great, and don’t forget to tell someone you love how you feel about them!
