Philippians 2;1b. Day 7, Gift 7
Philippians 2:1a (Part 4)
Tonight I’m focusing on

I just noticed the order of

through when we first give our lives to Christ.
Many will encourage us in our

possibly confused by trials, we receive comfort.

we are in situations that require
encouragement and comfort.
That spells trials to me.
Then, as we receive encouragement
and comfort, we begin to learn the value of unity because other’s united to
encourage and comfort us!
Finally, we learn to show

Readers, today yet another dear friend –
who has survived breast cancer multiple times - told me
that during a completed unrelated medical emergency, CT scans revealed a lesion
on her kidney. As I type these words, I’m thinking,
“Really, LORD? Really? How many friends diagnosed with cancer does this make in the last two months? Six? Seven? And two of them are terminal.”
But, then this Scripture popped into my head:
And I realized:
I’m focusing on
how very big the problem is,
it is huge.
No doubt about it.
I need to be focusing
on how very big my God is.
And He’s big.
Really Really Big.
So, my dear friends,
And just be held.
Just. Be. Held.
You are huge.
You are powerful.
You are wise.
Please take these big, painful, scary problems and squash them like a bug.
Please encourage and comfort my friends.
Please bring unity to their families, friends, and doctors that they make work as a team to have the victory!
Please let Your love, tenderness and compassion be the rule in each of their situations.
In Your precious Son’s name I pray.

going to show you something I made a while ago.
My husband and I were “shopping” in my
gift tote. Most of us have one. It’s a tote filled with projects we’ve made
throughout the year as gifts.
My husband chose who would receive this
And I agreed.
It’s a perfect choice.
He’s pretty smart, my man is.
Here’s the post where I wrote about it. It was a practice block for the $7.50 BOM held
in Las Cruces, NM by Bernina Sewing and Design.
I had never made a Drunkard’s Path block before, so I made a practice
