I have been enjoying my time with family this past week (and missing my husband terribly!!!). It was great to be with them for Thanksgiving this year, though, and D has had lots of Grandma and Grandpa hugs and play time.
As I was working through my Colossians study this week I came across these verses:
“As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6,7
Isn’t it neat when our personal time with the Lord reflects what is going on around us or in our lives? What a great verse for this time of year. The idea behind these verses, though, is that, the outcome of being a mature Christian should be thanksgiving, or being thankful. And the question I asked myself was, “Am I a mature Christian?” Am I more thankful than I am a grumbler? Good questions to convict ourselves with!
Here are my blessings for this week: G – L
G – God – my absolute strength
Good friends – where would we be without them? (oh, and if I don’t mention you by name in my
