I have to say thank you to all who’ve commented. Your comments were in my spam comments and I appreciate you taking the time to let me know you were here. I’ve become very lazy or busy or something and I don’t have much time to approve and post your comment, however, I do read them.
This week has been a busy and interesting week. I love the variety of tasks involved with my job. Yesterday, I was able to assist with a brunch. I had a great time and also learned how to make French Pressed coffee. Interesting concept and pretty good also. We had bagels & cream cheese, fruit & yogurt, mini quiches and mini fruit tarts. All pretty yummy, thanks to Raleys!
We sat and talked a little about ourselves and then we were to share our life verses. Life verse? I had no idea. All the verses in the bible are definitely appropriate for my life, but to have one that sticks out and talks about me … well, I haven’t found one … YET! The one that was fresh in my brain and one I mentioned is Proverbs 27:9 (NIV) – “The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense.” As I’m lousy at memorizing scripture, I couldn’t quote the verse, so I said it talked about love and friendship.
So I woke up this morning and started searching for a life verse. Then I came upon a person’s blog that spoke loudly to me. It said that a life verse is also in God’s timing. One may not have found one, but when the time is right, it will speak loudly. That was such a comfort as I felt like such a failure to not have a life verse.
In searching information on life verses, I stumbled upon a birth verse website. When I entered the month and day of my birth, this verse appeared: “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12 NIV I have to say, I love this verse!! It is not only my birth verse, but at present, it is my life verse. It covers all, just as He does.
