“The decisions you make determine the schedule you keep. The schedule you keep determines the life you live. And how you live your life determines how you spend your soul.” Taken from “The Best Yes” by Lysa Terkuerst.
Lysa goes on to say that this soul thing is the opposite of selfishness. For me this is a conscious act of choice. When we bless others we get it back tenfold. You sow what you reap. For most of us it’s a work of our heart.
Hope says, “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves.”
– Philippians 2:3 (NAS)
Grace to you.

I have been lead to hold a number of differnt occupations over my working years. Surprisingly, most of which I could have never forcast for myself. They include- Nurse, wife, mother, florist, nana, writer, custodian, and now blogger. With these vocations have come many life experiences. I love catchy words and phrases.They are easy to remember and when shared can be a source of encouragement and hope. The meanings are not new their counterparts can be found in the reliable book of life, the Bible. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
