Guarding my heart today as my parents prepare to leave

My mom and dad have been here for a month and I had a blast having them. I loved the joy they bring to my family and seeing joy in their eyes as well. I am so sad that they are leaving tomorrow. It breaks my heart. Today above all the the verse above really applies to me. I need to focus on God, his plans, and trust that all will be okay. PJSLB

Let others praise you…no need to praise yourself

I absolutely love the book of Proverbs.  Just the place to go to find some great “one liners” on life or pretty much any topic on this earth.

I think to many times we search for the accolades of others.  We live for their praise and acceptance.  I am one of those that do such a thing.  I really need to focus on pleaseing our God and not man.  The thing is that is much easier said than done.  Be Blessed Everyone…Amen

Praise should come from others not yourself 

It’s great to recognized for something great you have done. Personally, I know how upsetting it is to have your contributions not be acknowledged by your peers. Proverbs 27:2 is a great reminder that there is not need to boast what you have done. PJSLB
