Saturday, August 1

no need to pick daisy petals


August has arrived in all its summer glory. One side of my house is currently filled with wild daisies growing everywhere. I love it! 

The Scripture verse on the calendar is a wonderful blessing and I am going to add to it with the next verse — "The LORD bless and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you....and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace." ~ Numbers 6:24-26

I think it's important to add to the verse as a reminder that with the Lord's blessing and graciousness comes His peace.  It would be hard to get through the crazy days of living in this world without that inner peace that only comes through knowing Jesus.  

His blessing, His graciousness, His peace all are yours because of His great love for you.  No need to pick daisy petals while sing-songing "he loves me, he loves me not".  

HE LOVES YOU with an unchanging love!

What a great thought to start a new month!

Blessings,

The Lord's peace IS His blessing, oftentimes. Sometimes, it feels like that's the only thing we're getting out of our relationship with Him (as selfish as we are!), but we forget what a HUGE blessing that really is.
