Wednesday's Word ~ God's Word

Rom 15:1 We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. 3 For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, "The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me." 4 For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

You know, I often hear people saying that they wished there was an instruction book for life... I have even been known to let it slip from my lips as well.... but it is wonderful that we do have a perfect instruction book for life. The Word of God! God knew that we would need guidance and encouragement here in this life and so He gave us one! But the Bible is so much more than a book of instructions.... it is a wonderful book of encouragement, love and hope. God knew that we would need something we could draw upon in dark times, something we could study and learn from daily.... a resource that would stand throughout time and culture to show us an everlasting hope.

I think that in this season of Christmas one of the best gifts we can give is a look of that hope in us.... something we do or say in just the next few days may change a life. Many times we are the only representation of God's Word that some will ever see. What do our lives reflect?

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your wonderful Word. I pray that I will ever use it to reflect Your will in my life. Lord, grant that I may be a living example of Your love each day and that I will ever look for the opportunities You present me with to spread Your Word. Thank you Lord, for Your Son, Jesus, that during this Christmas season the world is more open to hear of His birth. Thank you God, for sending Christ to us, to live among us and to become our Savior through His life, death and resurrection. In His most precious Name, Amen.

YuM!!! Prime Rib... cooked to order.... baked potato ... choice of sides.... and chocolate cheesecake for dessert! Wow.... some great eating tonight! Thanks again to the Jones' for a wonderful dinner tonight!

Well, it has been a long time stranger....

Goodness! The time sure has flown since my last post. I have spent the majority of my time at the pharmacy getting ready, training and now working hard on the new computer system we had installed mid-October. (can we say OVERTIME!!!) It sure is different that the old system. I like it! Now that we are getting used to the new computer and starting to get all of it under control, I am now able to get home on time most nights and the schedule is starting to look normal again. I have practically lived at the pharmacy for the last 3 months. I believe the kids had actually forgot that I was a part of the family..... lol.

Now, the holidays are here! We are getting the house all decorated up.... found out most of my lights (they are like 10 years old) have decided not to work this year.... so we have budgeted for a few strands. Jed is so excited this year about Christmas. He saw that many people had their Christmas lights up right after Thanksgiving and he was ready to put them up that night!

We have been so blessed this year! We have paid off several of our bills over the last year! God has been so good to us. Our garden was a blessing this year to us and we have been blessed with so many finds at the thrift shops and hand-me-downs for clothes that were needed. Our life may be simple, we may not have much by the worlds standards but we feel so very blessed!
