weekly grattitude

YIKES!!! Wrote this yesterday and forgot to post it :D

Monday morning. I gotta be honest. Not happy it is monday morning! But time with the Lord, gratefulness in the heart, and a cup of coffee might change that. Let's see how it goes.

First, after a long YAWWWWN right now, lets go to the wonderful word of God and bathe in beauty to find it and Him on this day.

Ephesians 3

16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

I pray this for YOU and ME!!!

  1. first of all, Linda, I heart that Ephesians prayer – thank you for that, and from your list – THE favorite one is the clean house – and not that the house is clean – but that dad and the daughters did it with you. My mom always used to say "if everyone would just pick up after themselves…" we always kidded her for it – but looking back – she was serious – and true. Second place goes to the mama daughter breakfast – that's a special thing – those moments are remembered. God bless and keep you and each and every one of yours this day Linda.
