Quote for the Day

"Let the first act on waking be to place yourself, your heart, your mind... your whole being in God's hands. Ask Him to take entire possession of you, to be the guide of your soul, your life, your wisdom, your strength."

Today is a beautiful day. The sun is shining, the wind is blowing. Thank you Lord for the beauty you place around us.

Our Source...

This is a thought that I have been reminding myself of alot lately. All the media coverage on the economy and the bailouts and everything. It can be really scary.
It's been on my mind since June when we found out that where my husband works was doing a buy out and if enough people didn't do the buyout then there would be layoffs. The buyout deadline has passed and now, we wait for the layoffs which are scheduled for January 1st.
Five years ago I would be terrified. But now, as I have grown in my relationship with God, I know we will be okay. God is our Provider, He is our Source.
As Christians we are to look to God for our needs. Just as the Lord provided for the Israelites during the Exodus, He will provide for us.
We are however to be good stewards of all that he has given us. Spend wisely, budget, use our time and talents wisely.
