I am happy to be a Georgia Peach, we have been in Georgia for over 15 years now, I love the weather, it has been in the 80's this week, yeah right, January and those kind of temperature, I love the people, and the ways of the South. I am so happy God sent us here, it is our home, and our way of life now. I often think on the scripture about being content, it is an awesome thing to be content where you are and with what you have, I have learned this from living a long time, in my youth I always wanted bigger and better, but I have learned to be content with what I have, God has brought me a long way, and has given me a new out look on life. Once you are content with who you are and where you are, the rest of life comes easy, so to speak. Being content is the most important thing a woman can do for her self, be content with you, be content in God. Here are some scripture to help you be content where you are, with what you have, and with who you are.
Php 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
1Ti 6:8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
Heb 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
We had a good day at church yesterday, very good message on serving the lord in this new year. I taught the ladies bible study Sunday night, it was all about Sarah, and just what her thoughts might of been, how she trusted Abraham very much, but perhaps trusted God a little less, how she took matters in her own hands when God's promise of a son did not come to pass when she thought it was time, as many of us have done too, and it caused much trouble, in fact the trouble goes on today even, with the two sons families fighting over who owns the land. It caused terrible division, we all need to be careful when we get ahead of God, it can cause many problems we are not prepared to handle, it was a very good study, and it was fun being with my old friends from before.
I am going for my MRI today, and have an appointment with the surgeon the 24th to set time up for surgery. Keep me in prayer please. God bless you all, and remember Jesus loves you, and so do I.
