What Do you Want First? The Good News or the Bad News?

Hi Y'all,
I think I'll give you the good news first.

Mike's Package is complete. 2 people have to double check and then it will be presented before the Army Boards. We don't know yet if we made the February board's deadline or that is still up in the air. But either way Feb or March we will be presented and hopefully chosen to serve as a Chaplain and his family!

We are all excited!

The bad news is that my computer has been acting up this week and this is the first time I've really been able to post.

So now that the good news and the bad news are out of the way, let's see what God has for us today.

I will post the Identity Bible verse at my next post. Today I want to share a verse with you that is sort of rocking my own way of seeing myself

2 Corinthians 10:12 "Oh, don't worry; we wouldn't dare say that we are as wonderful as these other men who tell you how important they are! But they are only comparing themselves with each other, using themselves as the standard of measurement. How ignorant!" (New Living Translation)

Friends, I compare my self to others everyday! I use my own standard of measurement and most of the time I come out on the lacking end. HOW IGNORANT!

Did I create the earth? Did I decide what is beautiful? Did I fashion myself? What about those, who by my own ignorant standards, are better than me? Did I fashion them also?

Thank you God that the answer is NO....a hard resounding NOOOOOOO!

So for today...I will not display ignorant behavior by comparing myself with myself or anyone else. Today, I am God's creation. Fashioned by His own hand!

Thanks so much for your prayers! Thanks for being my friends!

I love you all....we are fashioned by God!
