Challenge and opportunity

1:48 p.m. Today's project was writing our final Galatians Bible study, the whole of Chapter Six. I am very thankful that the Lord enabled me to complete the lesson. The Apostle Paul closes with the phrase, "the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen." My heart is so full of rejoicing today that I chose these words from the hymn "Amazing Grace" to finish our weekly journey together tomorrow: "T'was grace that brought me safe thus far, and grace shall lead me home." Not only do believers have the assurance of arriving at our heavenly home one day, but peace to know that in all of our adventures here in this life, our gracious Lord Jesus is with us, guiding and empowering us to walk HIS way!

A knowledgeable and likeable gentleman came to look over our RV today, and prayerfully will bring his wife back this afternoon. We have some cosmetic flaws to fix, but they won't cost much!

As for my challenge, I will be weighing in at our weekly WL C today at 5:00 sharp! I don't expect any good news, since we did enjoy a fabulous Italian buffet dinner at Kriss' wedding on Sunday, topped off with cupcakes, but I hope to at least hold steady! Should I weigh myself here at home to cushion the shock? Nah! I'll just step up on the scale and take full responsibility for my gobbling. At least for today, it's been low carb (the most effective plan for me) so far, but there are almost three hours to go, and temptations abound when you live with three skinny people!!I do think it's possible to lose 20 lbs in 6 weeks, if I stick to my plan...

I am very much looking forward to writing the devotional for Moms' Morning on Saturday, "The Tongue," and seeing how God works His way with both a message for us mothers, and puppet story for the preschoolers! Our get-togethers are great fun, and the fellowship between moms who have "been there," and moms who "are there" is sweet! We go home encouraged to lift one another up in prayer, words, and deeds.

Love this cooler weather, so I'm headed out to help Steve with some RV fix-its.
