Weekend Wisdom: Ourselves

Sorry, this is late. It’s been a challenging week in many ways. A week that required me to change and adapt to different situations.

When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.

Viktor E. Frankl

Realizing we can’t change a situation brings about acceptance that the situation is here to stay. Changing ourselves to adapt to these situations is how we grow and become more of what God envisions.

Have a joy-filled weekend.

Weekend Wisdom: Festivities

This post was inspired by a devotion I read earlier this week.

What joy for those you choose to bring near,

    those who live in your holy courts.

What festivities await us

    inside your holy Temple.

Psalm 65:4 NLT

Wait with the knowledge that festivities await us when we get to heaven. In the meantime, enjoy the festivities here whether in a group setting or in the quiet stillness of your alone time with God.
