First, a BIG thanks to Marla at Butts and Ashes for this sweet award!
I now pass this award on to:
Lisa at The Sentimentalist
Olivia at 406 Olivia
my friend at Slam Dunks
my friend at Closet Full of Hopes and Dreams
I have to admit, I'm not a big Old Testament reader.
So I was surprised when this verse in Lamentations was pointed out to me:
"It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord."
(doesn't this sweet picture of 4 of my kids evoke feelings of hope?)
I used to think that if I were being positive (hoping) about something, I'd have to have control over it to make it happen. Now, with the years of life behind me that I have, I've learned that I can work my hardest and hope for the best. But it is truly a virtue to quietly wait. (to me this also means accepting God's will over my own)
Any thoughts on this, dear readers?
