Good word Joanne. I'm reminded that our children don't belong to us, they belong to the Lord. What great gifts He has entrusted to us.
Have a good day!


Good stuff, Joanne! I love that this in Duet. 6 is the answer Jesus gave to the question, what is the greatest commandment? Good to hear again, and again... and again... :)


This passage SO speaks to me, Joanne. Have ever since I first heard them recited on one of Beth's studies...Daniel I think it is.

I go through periods where I meditate on this passage before I begin my bible study/quiet time. It seems to...ground me, maybe?

Hi friend! Will you please pray for us in dealing with Kylie this evening? We have some heart issues that have gone the wrong direction. We need wisdom right now.

Love you!

Excellent, excellent post...full of wisdom. Thank you for sharing that advice. I am blessed whenever I visit here.


How'd you get so wise?

Ahhh....Spiritual Gifts! A Gift to all of us.

I feel like this passage has been the proverbial 2X4 this year! At my mom's group, we have been going through a book, and this is the main passage. Then I heard a sermon on the topic. Then I will hear it on the radio. Also, in my mom's group, we had wise women from our church come and speak on the chapter of the week. It NEVER failed to come back to MY relationship with the Lord, no matter what the topic was.

Ok, Lord, I think I'm getting it!!
