broken branch

“(Satan)…from the beginning, has nothing to do with the truth, because there is not truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

John 8:44

I. Hate. Lies.

Don’t you?

With all the proverbial chaos in the world; especially the heightened “wokeness” as of late, most of us have been caught in a web or two. Left to sort out between fact & fiction or common sense & science or the brazen declaration(s) of: up is now down or boy is girl we are left to trust very few things.

Regretfully, as “open-book” as I have personally been with others about this great disdain

I still have been lied

about.

(Which others believed.)

And lied

to.

(Boldfaced & hidden.)

All of them have been quite the up-close & personal lessons

of walking side-by-side

with Job!

(Do you think God knows I am a visual learner???)

Giggles.

“I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud.  And I don’t want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realize that my life is a collection of meetings and pop cans and errands and receipts and dirty dishes.  I want to eat cold tangerines and sing out loud in the car with the windows open and wear red shoes and stay up all night laughing and paint my walls the exact color of the sky right now.  I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets and throw parties and eat ripe tomatoes and read books so good they make me jump up and down, and I want everyday to make God’s belly laugh, because He’s glad that He gave life to someone who loves the gift!!”  ~Shawn Neiquest

“Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same.”   ~author unknown

“Lord on this Labor Day, we thank You for the blessing of work.  We ask for strength to compete each day.  We ask for rest when we are weary.  We ask Your guidance for everyone seeking employment, and we ask that You be with those whose faces we might never see but who work tirelessly each day for the good of us all.  Amen.” ~Our Sunday Visitor

and because it IS Monday Helen leaves you with this labor day giggle:
