Great short article by Ms. Quade on the Victory Girls blog.
Did plumbing work yesterday, which was a first. So far, so good. Thank God. It would be great to save a couple hundred dollars. Rain and thunderstorms this morning. I hope it breaks the humidity and not contribute to it. Carol leaves Wednesday morning for Santa Barbara, she comes back Saturday evening. I am taking half of Thursday and all Friday off (Lord willing). Hoping for great quality time with no interruptions or distractions. Please!!!
The darkness of thoughts and mind are still something I am having to battle constantly. God is getting me through it but I really wish all the blackness would simply vanish. Something I find interesting is yesterday in my reading I came across this portion of scripture that I have read many, many times before but yesterday God pointed out to me something I had not noticed. Joh 14:27 "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." (emphasis added by me) He showed me it is a choice. I know a lot of my "issues" is chemistry but I still have a choice to drown or be engulfed by it - or battling it. Not to let it be troubled, afraid. Other verses then came to mind immediately that also pointed to this truth such as Philippians 4:4,6-9 (not be full of care...) and what to actually think on.
