Nov.11/20 – The best inheritance a father can leave his children is a good example.


Today remember those who fought and died for our freedom.

As ye know how: we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children.                                                                       1 Thessalonians 2:11

I like be in control of my circumstances and the outcome, but that isn’t my job and so frustration, and sometimes anger sets in when things don’t go as planned. Just as a father disciplines his children, so does our heavenly Father for us. I’m reminded that he can turn any disappointment into a blessing. It may not feel so at the time but can with endurance and faith things work out for the best.

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.
