I am thinking...about reactivating my former devotional blog, No Ordinary Faith. There are some things I want to write about as far as what the Bible says about the Christian's response to the social and political issues we face. I know I could do those posts here but am thinking a separate blog might be better. They won't be sugar-coated or politically correct so maybe they need their own venue separate from this daily life blog. Pondering...
I am thankful for...God's provision. I know that's what I say a lot but it's true. It's a blessing to wake up know that just for today every single need is met.
From the kitchen...nothing! The dishes are washed and hubby and I are going to Panera Bread for dinner so no supper preparations are needed.
I am reading...Dead, White and Blue by Carolyn Hart (cozy mystery fiction).
I am creating...Christmas cards for the Etsy Christmas in July promotion.
Around the house...it is quiet and uncluttered. Nate is gone for a week visiting his sister and brother-in-law in California. Need I say more? lol
On my MP3 player this week...Casting Crowns.
One of my favorite things...a morning cup of my homemade healthier version of mocha latte, hot in cooler weather and iced when it's hot outside. Most mornings this is breakfast for me.
One of my least favorite things...I have a love/hate relationship with the postal service. This week it is dislike as they seem to have lost a package. The tracking number says it was delivered in Michigan but it was supposed to go to Utah. Who could they have possibly delivered it to and wasn't there a human somewhere along the line that had to actually look at the label to deliver it and realize that Michigan isn't Utah??
A Simple Grace Note...With Nate gone this week I've had a glimpse of what the empty nest will be like. It doesn't scare me at all! I love my kids but the peace and quiet around the house is nice too.
My simple devotion... "Sometimes you find people who are a little hipper than thou who conspicuously eschew the title “Christian.” They would rather be called a “Jesus follower” or a “disciple of Jesus of Nazareth.” There’s no problem in using this biblical language, unless it is to steadfastly avoid other kinds of biblical language. ...By all means, let’s be disciples of Jesus, followers of Jesus, lovers of Jesus, and friends with Jesus. But let us never stop there. We are also Christ people–worshipers of our Savior and King, trusting in all that the Messiah fulfilled and accomplished, redeemed by our dying Lord. Don’t lose the term the church in Antioch “earned” by their faithful witness. If you are glad to be a Christian, don’t be ashamed to be called one either." - Kevin DeYoung
