I am having...
Hot Peppermint Tea, with a couple drops of peppermint oil dropped in. When I add the drops, I close my eyes (they will burn otherwise), cup my hands around my mug and breathe deeply the vapors of the tea. If you feel a little stuffy, this will clear your nasal passages and soothe your throat. It also rejuvenates.
I am feeling...
Overwhelmed...But Jesus says, "In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. "
On my mind:How the wicked and the foolish spread themselves out...how they laugh and sneer at purity and goodness then point their fingers to condemn the righteous.
Not very pleasant thoughts, huh? Sorry.
However, I do have a beautiful patch of zinnias in the yard that have been in bloom for over a month now. Every time I look out the window, they make me smile. They truly are a gift to me during these difficult days. I wish you could see them. I lost my camera so I cannot share a photo of the whole patch...too bad...but they are pink and yellow and orange...and as tall as a nine year old child. Sophia took a picture of a bloom (before I lost the camera) for her collection.
A quote to share:
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:35-39
Have you ever wondered how Paul could write...almost in the same sentence...killed all the day...as sheep for the slaughter...nay we are more than conquerors? Guess, I'll go finish my tea.
