This beautiful cross was gifted me from one very special Earth Angel. It was handmade by a homeless man she got to know and help. He has since found a place to reside as well as a way to earn an income through his gift.

Let every skillful craftsman among you come and make all that the LORD has commanded ~Exodus 35:10

40 Day Sugar Fast….Day 15

DAY 15 — Monday, January 20, 2020

Everytime we do this fast I hear from my fasting friends, “I struggle with sugar, no doubt, but SOCIAL MEDIA IS MY BIGGEST STRUGGLE.”

Friends, there are few things that disrupt our real-life relationships (with God and our loved ones) more than our phones. They are divisive, dividing us from God and others.

Please share what’s on your heart today. Do you tend to fill every void with social media? God wants those holes so that He can make us holy… and tell us that we are wholly loved! Nobody who “likes” you online, loves you like that!

What do you think?

40 Day Sugar Fast

*****************************************************************************

Social media is here to stay. It can and is a wonderful tool, let’s face it I wouldn’t be ‘here’ participating in this fast with y’all if I wasn’t on FB.

I live 10 hours away from 2 of my children and 5 of my grandchildren, these devices keep me connected and help make that distance just a bit more bearable.

Through my blog I have forged a beautiful friendship that would never have come to fruition without my IPad.

Like so many things, it’s about moderation. I readily admit to spending to much time mindlessly scrolling, and those are the times I know I need to log out and log in to reading my Bible, or sit in quiet time out and pray.

So I will be working on balancing my time on my devices…..

30 Days Of Gratitude…Day 24

Day 24 .. Thankful and Grateful knowing God hears me. My morning read, my drive to church, Pastor Steve’s sermon, which was so spot on for me this morning ❤️🙏✝️

So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation—if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.” (1Peter 2:1-3)

30 Days Of Gratitude…Day 22

Day 22 Thankful and Grateful for my Now

This instant—this one now—is always your life’s beginning, a fresh chance to start living your destiny.” ~Unknown~

This quote popped up in my memories so I decided to pair it with this photograph I took the other day while on my Soul Stroll. The Now of this leaf’s life was to share its autumnal color and beauty with me. It’s nearing its end, yet Is this the leaf’s final destiny?! Nope, for through decomposition, it will continue to live on, giving its nutrients to the soil.

Which got me remembering how I’ve tried living and reliving the past, and then having to ask myself, how’s that working for you Linda? 🤷🏻‍♀️ and of course I’ve tried living for the future, waiting for that something better to come along, all the while life was passing me by…….

So, I choose to live my life Now, to embrace it and appreciate the moment. The ups, the downs, the curves and detours, because I know God has it mapped out, and with Faith, I follow 👣knowing exactly where my final destiny will be ✝️

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5)
