Romans 15:4 & 13 + 16:20 (bold type mine)

For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

Beautiful Mess said...

Okay, I think I am caught up on my reading after being gone for a week.

Where are you with the house?

and to answer your question-I am cheerfully awaiting being a mother again (waiting being the key word).

I didn't get to delve into the post with the link about the oils spill...in time I hope. Just overwhelmed right now with everything and not digging into things on the internet...too much to do.

Love you!
