A happy heart is like good medicine
But a broken spirit drains your strength
Good Morning !
I love being a grand’ma’ and a mom. I love keeping house and cooking and all that goes with it. It was what I always wanted for a career.
That’s probably why I’m hoping to retire. Not that there is any one here to keep house for anymore, but it is my house and I’d love to keep it better than I do.
It was mentioned in one of my comments that the translation I’m using to quote the Proverbs is different than theirs was. So I thought I’d let you know that for these I’m using the Inspirational Bible edited by Max Lucado. It’s one of the dozen or so different ones that I own. For my birthday I got myself a new Chronological Study Bible. It is full of references, maps and timelines. That one is the King James Version.
There is just never enough time it seems to do all I want to do, but I do try. I’m never bored and when of the end of day comes, I do sleep well too. The list of what I like to do is endless and the list of what I do that I don’t like to do seems endless sometimes too.
May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you
If you do not feel yourself growing in your
work and your life broadening and deepening,
if your task is not a perpetual tonic to you,
you have not found your place.
