Grace, Peace, & Strength

"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Phil 4:6-7

"And He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.'  Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." 2 Cor. 12:9

The month of August has been full of challenges, both expected and unexpected, giving God numerous opportunities to show His faithfulness in tangible, visible ways.  I have been continually humbled and blessed by His overwhelming love.  Watch for a future post or two that includes pictures and updates on what He & I have been doing. :)  Until then, enjoy the last few days of August.  (And if you're anything like me, you may be freaking out that summer went by faster than it takes to blink.  Where is the slow down button?!)

Also?  Eat something chocolate.  It will make you happier.  I promise. ;)
