Here in Kentucky it's in between snow storms. I decided I wanted a picture to make us think of spring and I found that in this photo. More than that, I saw this flamingo, standing firm in spite of a very gooey situation, reminding me, no matter what gooey Sandwich Generation situation I find myself in, I have to rely on God to enable me to STAND FIRM IN THE LORD!
…Now we really live, if you stand firm in the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 3:8
…Stand firm in the Lord, my beloved. Philippians 4:1
…Stand firm in the faith… 1 Corinthians 16:13
…Stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught. 2 Thessalonians 2:15
More than one pastor has pointed out that if God repeats Himself in the Bible, there's a VERY good reason for that. 🙂 As a Sandwich Generation grandmother, one of my biggest desires has always been for my kids and grandkids to know and love God with all their hearts, souls, strengths, and minds. Next, once they have done that, I desire for each of us to STAND FIRM IN THE LORD! These are all some of my primary prayers every day! And I am blessed because I know that these are God's desires for us as well, which means I am praying according to His will in all of this. Very encouraging!
