Coffe Cup Bouquet
It just so happened that evening was Ladies Bible Study night. I asked the ladies to pray for me and they did. Our study was on "Communications". I received a double whammy of God's love that night. I feel silly for being so discouraged but I also know that God is faithful and He hears our prayers. He knows all our strengths and weaknesses and He loves us none the less. Being discouraged in the midst of this study made me examine my heart and how I deal with people. Do I exhibit Christ's likeness in my communications, countenance, and tone or do I not? Very humbling.
The next day my sweet friend delivered a beautiful coffee cup bouquet. Flowers may seem ordinary to you, but for us in the Arctic flowers are very costly and a luxury. I'm so very thankful for the people God puts in my life. He puts people in my way to encourage, to receive encouragement from, and to serve.
I hope you have a merry heart today! As for me I am enjoying the sweet smell of roses and standing firm on the peace only God can give.
