Apr.15/20 – Don’t be afraid of pressure. Remember that pressure is what turns a lump of coal into a diamond.

I know that having children and babysitting a few grand children can and will try a person’s patience. Going back, it’s all fun and games till someone gets hurt. Isn’t that the truth? I feel the pressure to be calm and loving and I want to be calm and loving, but I have to work at it. With a prayer and the Lord’s help I can.

Peace to you.

About bshiveofhope

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.
