Our week-end was a good one. We spent Sat. morning on some necessary chores, and Sat. afternoon visiting with the birthday boy Cody. I FORGOT my camera after carefully charging the battery, so there are no new pics afterall. But he really enjoyed his gift, and we enjoyed him. We came home and barbecued some yummy fish and watched a movie starring Sissy Spacek. I don't remember the name of it now, but it was really pretty good. She was soo young in it. Sunday found us at church and then lunching and visiting with them. We watched the super bowl and were disappointed that the Patriots lost. They really just did not play their usual game. Oh well, I guess there is always next year. James and Larissa went back to church around 5:45 for a prayer service and we kept the kids. They are really always soo good for us. Grandma enjoyed every minute.
Many things go on in all of our lives I am very sure that are just soo hard. Sickness, death, money issues, rebellions and the list could just go on and on. I am not one to talk about alot of these issues in my own life here on this blog, but I of course deal with all of these things everyday. Our lives here on this earth are FAR from perfect, and our struggles will go on until the Lord calls us home. But as I have been studying James, I am really working at looking at these trials in a different way. He allows these things in my life for very specific purposes, and IF (the big question) I let them He really can and does work them for my ultimate good.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
How I love the verse. Just KNOWING that whatever it is that is happening, He WILL work it our for good!
Romans 8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Evidence that God is for us?? The gift of Jesus Christ. One person plus God makes an unconquerable majority.
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
