Monday's Strength. Morning Glory Blocks 5 & 6. Book Date.

Monday's Strength

You know, I've been surprised at how calm and peaceful I've been these last few months.  Yes, there have been tears, but, for the most part, I've been walking in faith.  

I like this sentence from Jana Alcorn's book, Don't Throw in the Towel, Hope Again!  How can we grow our ability to handle disappointment?  By leaning on our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ.  It's only through Him that our strength comes.  

I pray for His joy - which is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10).  Then, after my pain, trial, disappointment has passed, I can go on to comfort others with the comfort I have received from God (2 Corinthians 1:3-5).  
After the trial, comes opportunities to testify to His grace and our victory through Him!

Morning Glory Blocks 5 &  6
I finished two more blocks for my Mother/Daughter BOM!  Here are Morning Glory's Blocks 5 & 6!

I finished Block 7 last week, so I'm over halfway finished!

Sadly, this awesome read was a libray book and, due to the many people requesting it, I had to turn it in before I finished it.  

None yet!
