It’s been a really cold week on the East Coast. Really cold. Thus, this week I made a Bite of Bread image that makes me think of spring, sort of. Do you see the spring? I’m not very patient for it. I blame that on growing up in the South. I was ready for spring once Valentines Day passed. And it usually did.
I have a sign in my kitchen about the South. It says:
The place where. . . 1) Tea is sweet and accents are sweeter. 2) Summers start in April. 3) Macaroni and cheese is a vegetable. [Can I get an amen?!] 4) Front porches are wide and words are long. 5)Pecan pie is a staple. 6) Ya’ll is the only proper noun. 7) Chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy. 8) Everything is Darlin’. 9) Somebody’s heart is always being blessed. “
Well, my friends, as I look forward to spring and try to be patient, there is something this Southern gal can do. I can “bless your heart” with scriptures that fill you with hope, favor, promise, and worship. I’ve written them out this week, but I hope you will enjoy each verse one day at a time. Grab your journal. There’s just something about making the effort to write down each eternal word.
Monday: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 17:8.
Tuesday: “Keep me the apple of your eye; hide me beneath the shadow of your wings.” Psalm 17:8
Wednesday: “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23
Thursday: “Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty heavens. Praise Him for His acts of power; praise Him for His surpassing greatness.” Psalm 150:1,2
Friday: “For I know the thoughts that I have for you,” says the Lord, “thoughts of peace and not evil to give you a future and a hope.” Jer. 29:11
Saturday: “I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands.” Psalm 63:4
Sunday: “Sing for joy, O heavens and exult, O earth; break forth O mountains into singing! For the Lord has comforted His people.” Isaiah 49:13
Ya’ll come back soon!
