TERRIFIC 2'S TUESDAY
On this Tuesday of Holy Week...
I'm thinking I don't have enough fingers or toes to count all the times someone close to me has hurt my feelings. Very often we run to someone else to tell them about what happened. We tend to think others can fix all our problems. I've learned that they can't and most of time they really don't want to hear your problems anyway.
People have enough of their own problems without stopping to help solve ours. Good friends may be willing to listen, but they can't fix the problem. We would be so much better off if our response to every emergency and every kind of emotional pain were to pray.
I start every day with a prayer. I know that I'll need His help and strength every day so I choose to start the day off with the best help I can get.
Lenten tip for Holy Wednesday: PRAY for the willingness to follow God’s will.
At my house one of the things on the Easter menu will be deviled eggs and that means I'm also going to have some empty eggshells available. I found out a fun way to use them:
Rest eggshell halves filled with soil in egg carton. Plant a marigold, petunia, or grapefruit seed in each or even grass seed for fastest results. Water and then place in sunny window.
I've read about a lot people starting seeds now inside to plant later out side. Just as Easter is certainly a powerful message of new life for us, seeds often provide a clear message for us of that power of new life too.
That's my 2 for this Tuesday! Prayer and Seeds
I hope your day is a TERRIFIC one!
