I lost my hat!

Yes, this is the hat I lost... now, how could I have misplaced it? I love this hat, it was perfect for a snowy afternoon at tea. After a long flight, I had the worst case of bed head, "airplane hair" and our rooms were not ready. So we had tea in the bar and I kept my hat on! I do wish I could remember where I left it.... if anyone has seen my hat and can return it ~~~ >> NO QUESTIONS WILL BE ASKED ... its just that I miss it and wonder where it went. It is an anthropology hat and was quite dear, so there may be a treat in for you if you find it. Thanks for listening!

this is the morning & here is the JOY!

Today in my daily verse!
For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime.Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
Psalm 30:5
God doesn't hold grudges. His personality is not like ours; His ways are not like ours. Be free from your self-condemning chains. Be joyful this morning. Experience the grace and freedom that abound through Christ living in your heart!

Some thoughts I have had and have to keep re~learning.

Trials have no value or intrinsic meaning in the themselves... It is the way we respond to those trials that makes all the difference. J.E. Tada

My thoughts exactly..... as humans we tend to want to look only at our own hurts and either soak in the pain or lash out at others.

Both the the lamb (who soaks in pain) and the lion (who lashes out) feels the thorn prick each responds in an inappropriate way... for humans.

God wants us to "give him" the thorn and the pain and learn compassion for the experience or patience. Sometime the lesson is specific for us alone. We can either get bitter or better. Those around us will either suffer from our inappropriate responses or reap the added benefits from our learning our lesson. What a "better way" to learn how to, take care of another with pain, than have experienced it yourself.
