I’m just a housewife…

it’s the monday giggles…

I have been so impressed by the many individuals, stuck in their homes, taking on wonderful initiatives to challenge themselves during this Pandemic period in our World.

People are learning new languages, enrolling in on-line courses, exploring their artistic abilities and discovering their own Julia Child’s buried deep inside themselves.

I am in awe.

I am inspired.

I am applauding you all from a far.

(Six-feet a far!)

And just so you don’t think I’ve been slouching and just lounging on the couch-thing, I thought I’d give you a little glimpse into the goings on in my OWN living room.

Which may or may not,

(whose to say,)

look a little like this –

as I channel some of my OWN Mary Tyler Moore house-wifing

(buried deep inside of me.)

hugs n’ blessing to all those living up to the challenges that face them!

It is not the greatness of the work that matters to God but the love with which it is done. -Brother Lawrence

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.

In this world you will have trouble.

But take heart!

I have overcome the world!”

John 16:33

Take heart!

In many other translations, this verse says, “Take courage!”

Such a beautiful, heartened, rally cry from Jesus to every one of us.

So, what is it that is supposed to embolden us?

The very fact that Jesus has overcome

this world!

The Greek word for overcome here is “nenikeka” which means to “be victorious over.” This word is used in perfect tense, which means it is a completed action in the past that continues to impact the present.

Which can only mean – the completed action of Christ’s death on the cross continues to bring us victory into the present day.

Wow!

Remember,

(because this IS important,)

we are not told to overcome on our own,

and there is no way we could!

Therefore, take courage –

because you are on the winning team!

I made it – Camelback Mountain – conquered! Fear of heights – TAKE THAT!!!

Have you ever been on a sports team or watched your favorite team on TV win?

The confidence and elation is nothing compared to what we have available to us, as Christians.

Living a life of courage is walking out that fact of victory in our lives – because the celebration of Christ’s victory did not stop 2,000 years ago – and our courage comes as we allow this reality to ripple into our lives today.

How can YOU walk in victory today?

hugs n’ blessings to all those striving to live courageously during this frightening time of uncertainty in the World.

Please remember you are not in this alonewe’re all on the same team!!

sit still.

it’s the monday giggles…

With more & more people

required to stay at home

I have a very important

public service announcement

to make:

Maybe if we all sit extremely still

Monday won’t be able

to see us.

hugs n’ blessings to everyone!

Because life is better when you’re laughing!
