Wednesday's Word. Wednesday Wrap Ups. Pressing On.

Wednesday's Word

"...choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve...."
Whom will we serve?  It's our choice.  During a sermon on loving our family on purpose, Pastor was sharing wonderful parenting tips.  As an adult survivor of child abuse as well as a parent who has made mistakes, I wondered if some of those listening may be 1) wishing they had parents such as the ones he was teaching about or 2) were parents who are burdened by mistakes they have made.  I fit into both categories.  

Before the defeated one could tangle me up, I recalled Joshua 24:14-15 - choose this day who I will serve.  I modified it to fit my needs for today by telling God and myself that I will  choose this day whom I will serve, 
the demons of my past 
the God of my future.  
I choose to forget what is behind - yet keep the lessons learned.
I chose to strain toward what is ahead.  
I wonder if you are living life constrained by the demons of your past, as I was?  
It doesn't have to be that way, not at all.  
Join me in taking steps toward a freeing, joyful life in serving the God of our future!  
It's so liberating!

Wednesday Wrap Ups
Tada!  Here is my finished Morning Glory flimsy!  I absolutely love it!

I'm pressing the top and using a fat back for the backing.  Then it'll be off to my LAQ!  I'm thinking about using a scrappy binding.  We'll see!
