7 Quick Takes Friday ~ Potatoes & Good Times, WordPress Writing Prompts, Spider visit, A Broken Christmas? & More



hrough the weeks I read various things that hit my heart, and think, I should share that here – or something funny, unusual or even heart-stirring happens, that is not a full post.  Well, I found this, 7 Quick Takes that is perfect for this.  So, I am going to try it out!

The potato graphic caught my eye below.  I love how Eugene Petersen captures this verse in The Message version.  I read the gal’s blog regarding this – she has special needs children, and she used this verse to apply to her life right now.  I wonder how many different “special needs” we all have we can apply it to.  She ends her blog post with:

So I will continue to ask God to step in and help me out when life feels overwhelming. I won’t give up because I know He is present, ready to extend His grace again and again. He is walking by my side.

And I dream of the day that He says to me, “Well done,” and I will seat down at the feast with Him, and with my children, whose bodies will be fully restored. These seemingly hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times.

Me too . . .

You know how us moms do not even get a moments peace in the bathroom, without kids knocking on the door or tattling episode #42 right outside the door?  I had a quite few moments today  . . . . until I saw this:

Needless to say, I was not quiet.  Now, the new fear of what is lurking in the toilet paper.
