I’ve been planning to get this post done all day, and now that I’ve filled up on strawberries with cream cheese frosting** for dessert – I am really ready! I have had my fill of sweet strawberries and that decadent dip of creaminess on the bottom. We made the frosting fresh this morning! Come on my sweet friends, I know you want to join us on this amazing journey.
Below are a few handy sweet scriptures I like for the end of April.
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Ps. 119:103
When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Prov. 3:24
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Prov. 16:24
I’ve been laboring a bit with verses in the second chapter of Colossians for the past week or two and I’m happy to share these two verses because I love thankfulness:
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Col. 2:6-7
In the book One Thousand Gifts, Ann Voskamp says, “Thanksgiving creates abundance; and the miracle of multiplying happens when I give thanks – take the just one loaf, say it is enough, and give thanks – and He miraculously makes it more than enough.”
My prayer is that we overflow with thankfulness through the circumstances…today and every day, and He will make it more than enough. —-Madge
