Keep your heart...

Happy Monday to you! I know I say this a lot... I know I probably sound like an old person... but can you believe how fast January is going???  Sorry it has been 5 days since I posted... sometimes time just gets away from me.

I have been a little distracted with a missionary friend and their adoption of their 2 Haitian boys.  It has been a rollercoaster for them for 2 years, but especially now after the earthquake.  The good news is that their baby boys finally got their visas over the weekend and now they are traveling from Chile to Florida tonight.  Their boys along with other "orphans" are to be brought to Orlando sometime tomorrow.  Please keep praying for everything to go good, for patience, for strength, for all the people of Haiti.

Wanted to share this journal and bookmark I made... maybe for a gift for some special person... cut out all of the pieces with my Cricut... just luv that machine! Stamped "From the Heart"... rhinestones, diamond stickles on the heart... not too fancy, but I think it is a nice gift.  What do you think? 

I have a thought for the day... What is one of the most important things people need, besides God??? Answer: Other people.  What is the one thing that can cause you the most angst in life??? Answer: Other people.  Do you ever find it hard to get along with other people??? I am sure we all have our moments whether being the aggravator or the aggravated.  I came across these verses today... this is the Contemporary English translation, which I liked how it said it like it is, "Always be humble and gentle. Patiently put up with each other and love each other. Try your best to let God's Spirit keep your hearts united. Do this by living at peace." Ephesians 4:2-3

I like the part that says, "patiently put up with each other," some days that is about all you might feel you can do and that is okay, just remember when we let the Holy Spirit rule in our heart... it makes it so much easier to love people where they are at... just a thought.

with a grateFUL HEART, carin
