whatever is lovely.

One of the best lattes I've ever enjoyed...mmmm.

My thoughts are a bit jumbled...I'm finding it a challenge to put words to paper the past couple of days. My mind is wandering...thinking of all the things I have to do...fighting myself again...one day at a time, one day at a time...

Summer...it takes some adjustment.

I had a weird dream last night...lots of stairs...they were narrow, as were the walkways...which were more like bridges...rope bridges with wooden planks to balance on. They led to small rooms...dark and hard to see where I was. Wherever we were required security clearance to enter. A base? A spaceship? I don't know. I was alone there. But then suddenly Chris joined me. And just like that we were at the house of an acquaintance...it was a mess...food on the floor, trash everywhere, laundry strewn all over the place...doors, doors, doors...more dim rooms.

Hmm...might have to bust out the dream book on this one.

In the meantime...I am reminded of this scripture...
Finally, brothers and sisters, 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.

Philippians 4:8


I need to focus on whatever is true...and right...and lovely...

I think that is one of my VERY FAVORITE scriptures! Thanks for sharing it in light of summer and making transitions. I've had a bit of a time transitioning myself and I hadn't thought to apply this scripture to this situation. Good thoughts!!!

I am not too familiar with the New Testament (I'm Jewish :)) but that really is a lovely verse and a great way to intentionally draw your attention to what truly matters. Thanks for sharing!

Blessings,
This Good Life

Thanks for sharing this verse. Such a good reminder as I've had an overactive mind myself lately. Hope you're having a lovely day full of lovely thoughts:)

Definitely sounds like a very curious dream. I so rarely remember my dreams. If I do remember them, it's usually only for a blip of a minute when I first wake up; then they're gone. I should keep pen and paper by the bed. I'd be interested to see that dream book. I'll have to see if the library has it. Did you look it up?
