So, I am just going to go with some of my favorite quotes and pictures from the week. If I hear back from either of the ladies I contacted I will update this post. Or save it for next Sunday, we will see.
I found lots of inspiration on Twitter this week. It's funny, I actually read a tweet at some point this week from someone who said that they wished they could remove all the inspirational "crap" from their feed. First of all, to each his own. But can I just tell you that the inspirational tweets are pretty much the only reason I even get on Twitter. When my feed is full of negative comments, I just shut it down.
Anyway! Here's some of my Twitter inspiration:
"Do not be surprised that what God asked of you yesterday is insufficient for your journey of faith today." Justin Davis
I love that thought, that God expects us to grow.
"The meaning of life is to find your gift, the purpose is to give it away." Emma White
Find it and give it away, every single day. And the miracle is, the more you give the more you find. :)
"The best thing about today: You don't have to prove yourself to anyone. Just be you." Justin Davis (again)
Just be me, even if me is kind of nuts...I like it!
And here is a good question from Nicole Unice:
"Are you living in a personal vacuum?"
I know I have been guilty of this. Blogging has actually helped me with this, drawing me out of my comfortable shell and making me think and look at the world around me in a new (and I hope better) light.
Here's some stuff I found on Facebook:
"He is not limited by the natural, He has supernatural power. When you consider God instead of your circumstances, amazing things can happen." Joel Osteen
|Let me be filled with you Lord.|
"The Lord possessed me at the beginning of His way, before His works of old." Proverbs 8:22
"Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence,
O' Lord." Psalm 89:15
This past week was a rough one at work. On Monday we found out that a coworker had found her son dead the morning before (last Sunday). This pretty much rocked everyone. I personally cannot imagine coming back from that. I'm not sure anyone who hasn't been through it can. This verse has been on my mind when I think of my friend and has become kind of my prayer for her and her family:
"Thus the Lord God has said...In quietness and trust is your strength." Isaiah 30:15
And finally I wanted to share just a couple of pictures I took this week with my cellphone.
|Random beauty from my front yard.|
|View down my street. Look at that sky!|
|From Saturday while wandering around at my mom's|
|This one too.|
|Diva, queen of the dirty clothes|
|Maggie Mayhem and Sassy, queens of everything else!|

Okay, I think that's it for now. I hope you found something here that blessed you, made you think, or just plain made you smile.
OH! Here is one last thing that made me laugh out loud:
