Share the Love ~ April

Okay . . .

After dentist appointments, doctor appointments, oil change appointment to make an unexpected 4-wheel brake job appointment, ugh . . . not through yet . . .

New meds that left me with dehydration, heart palpitations, brain fog for several days, I’m thankful my head is on straight!

Unfortunately, I thought this week was the first week of May. Probably because the last three weeks seemed like a month. Ever had one of those months?

So . . . I’m posting this month’s Share the Love on a Thursday rather than the usual Tuesday. And you know what? I’m taking off next Tuesday. 🙂

Happy spring break to me.

It’s okay. You can laugh. 🙂 BTW, not taking the meds anymore. Done with that nightmare. Have a blessed weekend, my friend.

Share the Love ~ October

Love and Selfcontrol Joyce Myer Center of His Wheel

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law (Galatians 5:22-23).

I thought about this quote while reading the scripture. After thinking about it, I have to agree with Joyce Myer. It would be hard to practice the rest without the first and last one. 🙂

What say you?

Hope you enjoy October’s Share the Love.
