Just a couple of things...

Its Friday y'all and all I can think about are 2 things.....

1. We survived the 1st week of school!!! HALLELUJAH! Middle school is delightful. Yes it is. Remind me of that in a few weeks. :)

2. I'll be in San Antonio this time next week gearing up for the fabulous Siesta Fiesta with all my bloggy friends and our beloved teacher, Beth Moore. Excited is not a strong enough word.

Ok...moving right along.

I just returned from my walk and God shared a couple of things with me. One through a fabulous Keith Urban song, called "I told you so."

Aren't you so glad that God doesn't sit around and say "I told you so" every other minute of our life when we mess up?? Thank you Jesus for your unconditional love and mercy and grace. You simply amaze me. It hit me fresh this morning. I just love that.

Secondly, we might need to reinforce a classic scripture in our homes (ok, maybe mine). I love the King James version....even had to look up where it is bc I had no idea....

Matthew 7:12 "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Might be one of the most important scriptures we teach our children.

That's all for now. Have a great Friday. I need to spend some time with Him today. We got some junk to work out. I hope you find yourself thrilled with the presence and love of Christ today.

Hugs and blessings~

I'm thinking "junk" is not a strong enough word, but, hey, your inner "closet" may not be as messy as mine. :o)

Hugs sweet Fran...have a "clean sweep" of a day!

I use that "do unto others" scripture a lot in my house with the two boys (and occasionally even Mom)!

Hope you have a great weekend!

So funny, I just had the "Do unto others" talk with someone very close to me......ever notice that we treat others better than we treat our famil sometimes? Yeah, that's my pet peeve.

You just can't get any plainer than the "Do Unto" verse. Whoever thought that one up was one smart Guy.

Mary Lou said...

You so rock, your heart. Your boys are really blessed. Have a great time next week. Maybe when she comes to Memphis next year I can go to that meeting, and you can come since it's just down the road from you. Blessings...

Yahoo for finishing the first week of Jr. High! Yahoo for the mom and for the son!

And, Miss Fran, that verse is a fabulous verse to preach. I feel as though it's a good "topical" verse for a girls ministry bible study. Seriously!


Love you!


MelanieJoy said...

Glad you made it through the first
week. My week was great but next week it all starts for me. =(
I hope everyone has a blast...I'm sure you Siesta Fiesta!!
Tell me all about it when you get back!! I hope you have a wonderful lazy weekend!!!! Hugs!!

Jenny said...

I have to tell you, that Lindsee of mine is very very excited about meeting you. And I am just a little little bit jealous.... ;)

Love you!

I can't believe you have a middle schooler! I hope that transtion goes well for both you. Really appreciated your post on peace. I really needed that today. So sad I will miss seeing you all in San is right during the time school starts here...sniff. So wish I could hug your neck!

So funny you mention that verse! My son and I have had several conversations of "it's not do unto others as they do unto you", "its do unto others as you would HAVE them do unto you"!!!! He just doesn't seem to get the verbage down right! I'm glad I'm not the only one needing to have that conversation!

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
