This morning I was laying in bed thinking of all the pictures I must have taken on first days of school. . . .or. . .
all the pictures I did not take the first days of school.
Regardless, the pictures are firmly planted in my mind.
I'm claiming old fashioned film camera in this particular bad shot.
One shot. . ."I hope you had your eyes open boys". . . there was always that hope that the eyes were open.
No matter, off to school they went with their enormous lunch kits and grocery bags filled with school supplies.
On another note. . .
I'm reading the daily devotional ..
My Utmost for his Highest. . . by Oswald Chambers.
I always go back to this study when I need a kick start. . .and I do.
I felt today's read was fitting for my life. . .the line that hit me was. .
"If we believe in Jesus, it is not what we gain but what He pours through us that really counts. God's purpose is not simply to make us beautiful plump grapes, but to make us grapes so that He may squeeze the sweetness out of us."
Jesus words in John 7:38 backs this up. . .
Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.. . .
In this world it is nearly impossible to think in terms of what we can offer before thinking of what others may offer to us.
I'll think of that one today. . .
Off for my 30 minutes walk. . .
Today I have let you in on the second vital reprioritzing of my life. .
Have a wonderful day my friends.
