Understanding, Wisdom and Virtue

Understanding is knowing what to do;
Wisdom is knowing what to do next;
Virtue is actually doing it. -- Tristan Gulberd

I pray these three over you and myself (Lord knows I need all three...big smile as I know God is nodding with a, yes she does!) today. So I asked God in faith for Understanding, Wisdom and Virtue and look forward to seeing it come through today going foward. Amen!

Have a beautiful and giggle-filled weekend!

Lulu Pie - So very cute

My niece - Peyton Grace, or as I have always called her (My lulupie or Lu for short). I just love this new image because it shows the courage and tenacious drive that is in her and well, in all of the women in my family.

Friday Beautiful - Girls Full of Courage!

Two cuties. My sister Gretchen and her baby girl, Petyon Angel Grace. When I think of the word courage, my sister Gretchen always comes to mind. She has been through much over the last few years and is always just full of grace in most every situation. She is never a complainer....ever! She is Brave and I admire that in her. I am just proud of her as a person and think her daughter, Peyton Angel Grace is every bit as courageous and funny as her Mamma. I love these two people very much. I am very marshmallow (the word I use for proud) of these two girls and wait expectantly for blessings to gently fall all over them. So there is my "Friday Beautiful" for the week. I get Peyton Grace for the night and can't wait until this work day is over so I can go and giggle with her. One last sweet thing. In this image doesn't it look like all the sunflowers are looking gently on them. I love that! They are both sunny people, so they fit perfectly amongst sunflowers.

I pray your weekend is filled with so much laughter your cheeks hurt!

Courage is grace under pressure.
-- Ernest Hemingway

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power
is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the
more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest
on me. -- 2 Corinthians 12:9

Work and freelance are just too crazy right now for blog fun, but I thought if anyone is in my same crazy, busy, deadline-filled work situation that these quotes below might be encouraging. Hope blessings will be all over you today and and that you smile big!

Hard things are put in our way,
not to stop us, but to call out our
courage and strength. -- Anonymous
Faith, mighty faith the promise sees
And rests on that alone:
Laughs at impossibilities,
And says it shall be done.-- Charles Wesley
The person who says it cannot be done
should not interrupt the person doing it.-- Chinese proverb
