Today's Verse from the New Living Translation
"Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won't he also give us everything else? … Can anything ever separate us from Christ's love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? … No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. … No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord."—Romans 8:32, 35, 37, 39 view in context
Encouragement for Today
Nothing can separate us from the love of God. We must not look to circumstances for evidence of God's love or proof that he will take care of us. If God did not withhold the best he had to give us—the life of his Son—will he not also give us everything else, including his love and power? When circumstances are dire, don't look at them. Gaze at the cross of Christ and what he suffered there for you. Then his suffering—and victory—will swallow up your suffering. Paul says that "overwhelming victory" is ours.—Diane Eble, author of Abundant Gifts: A Daybook of Grace-Filled Devotions
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope this touches you like it touched me.

Missy here. I'm not going to give the award to 15 blogs at this time. Just a few that I especially like. I hope you'll visit all of them!
F.A.I.T.H. (Note, I'm also a member of this group blog but love the other posts!) :)

A little birdie told me I've been awarded a blog award. More to come on that in the next couple of days. :)
Missy--who'll be enjoying another day with the kids at home tomorrow. No school! Which means my daughter will sleep till about 9 am, and my son will sleep till about noon. LOL It should be a nice quiet morning for working. :)

It's so nice to get away like that sometimes. Although we still had our cell phones, it's not like being at home where the phone rings for everyone else all the time. And though we had free Internet in the hotel, I tried to stay offline for the most part. And one of the best things is not having to cook! :) We went out for every meal and picked up bagels for breakfast. And the hotel kept coffee in the lobby around the clock. What more could writers want?? :)
We also discovered they have a wonderful indoor pool and hot tub. Next time, we'll take our swim suits!

What's even harder to believe is that I'll be doing this again in two years when my "baby" goes to high school. And then I'll only have high school and college-aged kids.
When did I get so old?! I had a birthday a couple of weeks ago. Okay, so I'll spill the beans. I turned 47. (Had to do some math to remember!) And it's hard to comprehend when I feel like I'm like 35 inside. And then, of course, there's my daughter who says, man, you're almost 50, and that's reaaaally old. LOL And then my parents say things like, wow, I can't believe you're that old! (Because they only feel about 50 inside.)
I, too, can't believe I'm staring at 50. I wonder how I'll handle it. But I have friends in their 60's and 70's who are making fun of me, telling me to just wait. :) So I guess I should be thankful I'm healthy and happy. And that age is a state of mind.
So how do you handle birthdays?
