Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? Our weather has been rather erratic, this week. We went from being rather chilly for June to hot and humid summer temperatures. Today we are down to comfortable; I rather like comfortable, myself. It’s about 74°, although it’s cloudy today, the sun peeks through every break in the clouds. It’s also rather windy, which keeps the humidity down and that, my friends, signifies a beautiful day in the making, especially because ‘hot flash’ continues to be a thing. Of course, the beauty in this beautiful day depends on my approach to the matters this day eventually brings my way.
If I try to make a success of this day in my own strength, then this day is already doomed. In my own strength, failure is inevitable because pride and selfishness are my two favorite companions, on days when my eyes are not fixed on the Lord. I love myself, I love my ways, even when I do ‘good’ for others, my motives are not above reproach (they are “suspect”, as my girls would say). BUT GOD… I read a verse that included these words today (Eph. 2:4). And I realized how absolutely blessed I am that these words apply to me. All I can say is this… HE makes me look very good. I owe it to those around me to make HIM look good too. May my life reflect His glory today.
These are a few photos taken with my trusty camera, but not by me (just in case you missed that) they were taken by the baby (Anna) on my birthday.
Have a fabulous day today. What are your plans for today?
