It seems to be a good day for some randoms…so here we go in no particular order:
You may know I have a thing about Jeremiah 33:3 and how 3:33 is a time or $3.33 for a price happens that pops up frequently in my life to remind me of the verse God kind of laid on my heart to be a life verse.
Friends and family frequently text me when it pops up in their experience and recently our sister-in-law Sonja sent me a little card she received somewhere…
it is taped to our computer and says…
God will give you good ideas.
Call to Me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own. Jeremiah 33:3 The Message
Love it <3
I asked John to do a gratitude challenge with me for the month of August.
I set my alarm for 7:51 each day (please do not ask me why I selected that time. I can only surmise that was when I decided I would need an alarm set) and then I sit and think about something I am genuinely thankful for that I have failed to express to God.
It’s been good for me and proven true that if we practice gratitude it actually does enhance our attitude to be more positive and also flourishes into more gratitude.
Which is quite possibly why we are told in Scripture to be anxious for nothing, but in everything, with prayer AND THANKSGIVING make our requests known…
I wasn’t too excited about this Back-to-School thing happening so early in August and I still think we short-change summer these days…but I must admit…my love for all things Fall is getting stirred up.
Our family, thanks to John, did our Fantasy Football league the other night.
While I have absolutely no idea who the players are and had to ask Russ what a WR is (and he told me, but for the life of me, I can’t remember what he said), we had much laughter as John hosted a wide range of family members on a conference call that spanned seven homes located in Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and Texas.
We don’t always have the most traditional family reunions, but we sure do enjoy what we can get.
In line with the gratitude thing, I surely am thankful for the variety of skills and trades of people who can do the things we don’t know how to do.
And I am also mightily grateful for the ones God has given us to use to help others.
What’s your skill set like?
Take some time to write it down and then ask God to show you where He is calling you to serve <3
