What I'm thinking about this afternoon

There are a lot of things floating around in my mind this afternoon. 

First is what we do in response to huge disappointments in life. How do we respond to tragedies our brothers and sisters in Christ face? I was reminded of a phrase I read a few months ago in a SheReadsTruth devotion: "And if not, He is still good." We've got to cling to that....He is still good. He's always good.

Another thing I've been thinking about is today being Palm Sunday. In church today the lesson was centered on John 12:13. We talked about how quickly things can change in one weeks' time. How true is that? We all experience our "Sundays" when it is so encouraging and easy to follow Jesus. But we also learn that the Christian life also experiences its share of "Fridays" when there's a cross waiting and we feel all alone

Also in remembering Palm Sunday, Bob Goff the author of Love Does, tweeted on the books Twitter page a thought that I really loved. He said, "They laid their offerings before Him palms down, so we live our lives in humility palms up." I just love that. Palms up, open hands, emptying our hands to give back to Him who gave it all.

  1. Hi Libby and Emmy~

    Ya'll left a comment on my post about the "A Week in Skirts" link up posts. I was wondering if you all could possibly email me so that way I can give you the details and info. There are about 10 others participating, and I have some special things that can be included in posts so that they are all connected.

    Thanks (my email is on my blog page).
