Good morning everyone ~ Well, it’s morning here in s.e. FL. It is 9:34 a.m. EST., and the temp is 84, but with the humidity, feels like it is 98. In a couple of hours it is supposed to feel like it is 107. Yesterday morning I got a late start and decided to mow because rain was predicted for the afternoon and next few days. I had a straw hat on, drank water, but couldn’t finish, because my body was telling me I’d done enough. I didn’t want to have heat stroke that’s for sure. I could hear my DH telling me to quit. Oh how glorious coming into an a.c. house is. Anyway, I didn’t do much physical labor the rest of the day. I did upload more items into my Etsy shop and that took quite a bit of time up, taking pics, editing, writing description, etc. You can see them in my link in the side bar to the right.
Thought I’d share some pics of my overgrown jungle. It tends to make me feel depressed at times, but, I am grateful for it.
Now, on the subject of being content.
In the past week, I’ve had 4 different devotional readings on this subject. I thought God was trying to tell me something when I had read three of them, then I got a fourth this morning, which really shows me He cares.
Here are 4 scripture verses that spoke to me, there were more, but these stood out for me.
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."
I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
Then he said to them, "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions."
This morning I read a great writing from Grace Gems. An online devotional that my DH found years ago and gave me the link to because he thought I would like it. I have been blessed by many of the writings from this place.
Here’s a link to the Gem for today.
I want to thank all of you who visit, to new followers, to those who leave links from their blog posts to mine, and thanks for all of your comments.
Thank you for prayers and encouragement. I have days where missing my husband really gets me down and I need to keep focusing on God and that my husband is with Him at this very moment. That’s reason to celebrate. Continue to pray for me as I walk this journey of widowhood.
