Authentic Compassion

Peace to You








We continue to work as strength and finances allow - not moved yet - no date set but we have peace. It is good on Buhlaland and at this time in our lives we see so many deprived of peace - not willing to lay down the stresses of daily life and striving toward goals which are not eternal. Peace HE gives to us - accept it and we'll all rejoice together for eternity. I'll back with my normal silliness over decorating choices, colors and textures - but for today I give you peace.

1 Peter 3:8
[ Suffering for Doing Good ] Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that's your job, to bless. You'll be a blessing and also get a blessing. Whoever wants to embrace life and see the day fill up with good, Here's what you do: Say nothing evil or hurtful; Snub evil and cultivate good; run after peace for all you're worth. God looks on all this with approval, listening and responding well to what he's asked; But he turns his back on those who do evil things.
1 Peter 3:7-9 (in Context) 1 Peter 3 (Whole Chapter)

Hi Linda Sue - I'm glad you two are feeling peace when some could be feeling so traumatized by the whole moving thing. That peace that passes understanding and that can only come from faith in our Lord. Everything will right itself and you'll be in your new home soon enough and with energy to spare. Take it easy you guys, and trust in the Lord. Hugs!!!

One day at a time. One step at a time. Patience is the hardest thing for me. You will be happy to get this all behind you. Best wishes.

Vickie girl - not much moving yet - DH's illness makes it hard to get much work done at any one session. But we know it'll be done when Lord allows - and Kelly - patience is a hard thing for most of us gals!

Peace is good, slow and at the right pace is good. It's all good on Buhlaland is good, it is good here too.
