Whatever is True...

Good Morning! Yes, it is really me... posting 2 days in a row!!! It is a beautiful morning here in northern Michigan.  They said we were going to get rain, but it is nice even though it is not sunny.

I woke up this morning with such a grateFUL HEART... it feels like my heart is literally overflowing with God's goodness!  Why do some days start like that and other days don't??? My mom has been going through health issues for a couple years now and the other day I shared this verse with her:

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8

Mom's health problems have attacked her mind and her spirit... the best place for the devil to hit us, so sometimes just reminding her of these things is what it takes to help her at that moment.  I encourage you to do the same thing when you are feeling a little lost and overwhelmed... speak out loud what you know to be true... the real truth is all that matters! Then start praising God for all the excellent things He has given you... call Him by the names the Bible calls Him... Counselor, Refuge, Almighty, Provider, Shield... I could go on and on!

Anyway, I have another Mom's Day card to share with you:

Off to the Thumb to spend tomorrow with my mom.  Happy Mother's Day all you moms!

with a grateFUL HEART, carin
