A little grace....

Once again I am amazed how God gives us exactly what we need when we need it. We just have to wait and be willing to listen to what exactly it is we need...

This is what I needed yesterday (Thank you Tamara)

2 Timothy 4
"1In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. 3For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
6For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure. 7I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing."

Things that are good: My house, my husband, my parents and parents-in-law, my dog, my job, my parents, my friends, being a vegan, blogs, and the weather. The other stuff is so minor but it gets so uncomfortable at times. I am grateful for perspective and being able to hold my tongue (most of the time.)

PS. we primered the entire house last night with the help of Mike and Tia (newlyweds!)
