Wednesday in the Word.

Philippians 4:8
8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
I'm in deep thought today. Lots to say...but no words to say it. So many thoughts...so many things...words swirling around in this head of mine. But none of them aligned correctly to make an actual coherent sentence. I think I'm proving my point with this senseless chattering...
I think the main reason I am having trouble finding my words is because I have something big to share. But I'm still processing it all...so the words haven't come together yet. And until I get it out there...no other words will surface. Does that make sense?
And don't worry...I'm not sick...or pregnant. Not with a baby, at least.
It's a good thing. I just need to be thoughtful about it...and how I share it.
So...until then...I will do my best to think on the true and noble and right. I will set my thoughts on whatever is pure and lovely and admirable. If something is excellent or praiseworthy...I will think on those things. And if my thoughts are on none of those things? I will pray...and ask God to help me set my mind on whatever is good...whatever is of Him....and to let those other thoughts go. Because if it is not of Him...it is of no use to me.

How unfair is this? You've got me all excited to hear the big news and now I have to wait...

I had a friend say something like this once. She WAS pregnant - at 42! He's now 8 and a doll! (Oh, wait, boys are not dolls... they are... little men, that's what!).

I don't mean to play 20 questions, but are you rethinking school? (Just remembering we're suppose to help keep you accountable).

Now, on to thinking of praiseworthy things...

Hi there,
You will work it out, you deep thinking woman. The verse you quoted is the scripture God gave me to be my verse for this year. Not that it doesn't apply to all-time. But I am to use it as a disipline to cut out my stinkin' thinkin'. You and your thinking process are in my prayers! :-)
Call me if you want to talk. Love you lots, my friend.
