My husband's Grandparents are celebrating their  68th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow we are looking forward to spending some time with them tomorrow.  This photo I took not to long ago, and the plate was a gift they gave us, it belonged to my husband's Grandfather's mother. The plate is from Norway and says "Give us this day our daily bread"

Colossians 3:12-13

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver. Proverbs 25:11

My husbands Grandmother gave us this rolling-pin... she received this from her grandmother.. It is over 150 years old and truly a treasure to own. I would love to know all the many recipes it helped prepare.
The little napkin ring is from Norway and was given to my husband from his grandparents when he was born, his name is engraved on it as well as a little bear.
The teacup is part of the set we also received from my husbands gracious grandparents, they are darling and a blessing to us.

The Inheritance

Each Wednesday evening I am participating in a Women's Bible Study at our church, we are doing a Beth Moore DVD Study called "The Inheritance" and let me just say WOW!!! It is truly a blessing. Tonight we were talking about how we view the Lord in our heart of hearts.... it is a thought to ponder ....
It brings me Joy to know God is our Shield and our Great Reward.
Nothing is impossible for God.. and will not the Judge of all the Earth do right? We can truly rest in Him always ...let go and let our Father take the wheel of our life.
Wonderful Read for today : Romans 12 and Hebrews 11:17-19

Great Read

4-5Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you're on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute!

6-7Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.

8-9Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.

Philippians 4:4-9
