I am blessed!

I had a wonderful Lord's day with my family. It amazes me just how much the Lord has given me! And to quote our pastor, "the greatest blessings are spiritual blessings." Indeed! I've asked my dear husband Joseph (by the way, Joseph = Jody and Jody = Joseph to clear up any confusion- I only have ONE husband) if he had a special verse or quote that I could put in this blog, so I'm waiting for him to give me that.

I heard from my sweet mommy today! Her visit with her in-laws is going really well, which we're so grateful for. She said the weather is beautiful in MN! We got into our Explorer today and it said the temp was 105!!! Crazy.

Ok, CC, are we going to walk this week? You can't get away from me that easily. Blogworld, Christy wants to run a 5k with me this September- whoohoo! So, any encouragement for her as far as running goes would be be great! Thank you. She was a joy to have at Jody's most current run yesterday. She was a big help with Baby Girl Dodson. We love that girl. Well, both of them. And we both had a tiny bit of free dr. pepper and BIG red. And we enjoyed bkst (not to be confused with brisket) @ Sonic. Fun times, to be sure.

Ok, my Joseph is ready with his verse/s:

Ephesians 1:15-23 is a prayer that we can pray for other believers.
:17 is what really spoke to him which reads, " that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.

He wants to share one more, which is a verse I really love and have committed to memory. I'd encourage each of you to do the same, and the Holy Spirit will bring it to mind at the most perfect times (it's on a daily basis that I need wisdom that is from ABOVE):

James 3:17
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

And, if a photo shows up (by some wild stretch of the imagination), then it's Mingus- our favorite cat!

Hope you all have a good week!

PS. Do any of you have a verse you've memorized that has been a blessing to you and would encourage others to memorize it also?? If so, please share!

Girl, I'll get back to you w/ a verse, but I had to comment on how funny it was that you said, Christy wants to run a 5k with me... Ha ha ha. Good one.

Christy agreed to WALK something with you. End.

I love you. See you everyday this week, Lord willing. When are we gonna walk???

Oh and since you're always so quick to point out my mistakes... I'd just like to tell you that it's bkfst.. not bkst. No wonder you had to clarify that it wasn't brisket.. Ha ha ha. Sorry. Kinda.
