16 Words

My memory verse for this time came from Isaiah 55:8, "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord".

How many times does a child pitch a fit or a temper tantrum because he does not get what he wants and how many times do we as adults pitch a fit or a temper tantrum because things do not go our way. This little verse is only 16 words, and only 11 different words but it takes us a lifetime to try to live it. If I could learn in each situation, that it is about what God wants and not what I want I might begin to take a step forward and not always two backward.

Talking about taking steps, Clayton is walking all over the place. He spent the night with us last night and tonight while Mom and Dad went to Pigeon Forge for some R& R. He is beginning to crawl less and less, give him another week or so and crawling will be a thing of the past. Gram and Popa have really enjoyed a less than busy day with him.

I'm ashamed to admit having pitched many temper tantrums before understanding 'It's not about me'.

What a great verse to remember.

Love in Christ,
