sometimes we need a spiritual lifeline

Sometimes mornings stink.

(At least at my house!)

Today was one of those mornings!

So I’m trying to keep these three things in mind as I go forward today.  I’ve come across these in my reading the past couple of days.  I’m sharing with hope that they touch you, too!

“Homemaking is unique in combining the most menial jobs with the most meaningful tasks:  it is a challenge to accommodate others without losing one’s own identity:  it is a demanding pursuit, but the fringe benefits are terrific!”             ~ Dorothy Patterson

“We need to develop the habit of emptying our pockets, so to speak.  We must spread out our feelings before the Lord, prayerfully sort things through, and ask him to dispose of the trash.  In so doing we will discover that we have exchanged out “spirit of despair” for a “garment of praise”.”  ~ Alma Barkman

and last but not least, the fantastic imagery in the piece of scripture from The Message Bible:

“We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God where Jesus, running on ahead of us, has taken up his permanent post as high priest for us…”  ~ Hebrews 6:18-20

Have a {great} day!
