Self Portrait Tuesday-Ready Heart

(Joleen, Me, Candice)
In celebration of Labor Day (and Joleen/Alex's new place) we spent the day painting yesterday. It was really fun getting together, one last time, before I go back to school tomorrow. I can't believe that after four months of bliss, I am dragging my feet at the months that lay ahead. I suppose the best thing to do is take it day by day. At least this time I'm standing on the hill, looking down.

By the way, thank you for the reminder to work and live diligently, leaving my complaints at the curbside and perusing the greater good in humanity. How quickly I forget about those who suffer still (within the borders of our great nation) while I talk about the price of gas.

"Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life-in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing." -Philippians 2:14-16-

Oh, how my heart desires to live this way!

Thank you, again, for helping yesterday!! Alex and I really appreciated everyone coming all that way to help!

Thank you for your comments regarding our complaints. It made me cry because I really hadn't meant to sound mean or offend you regarding this so I am relieved to see that it's okay.

Good luck with school, Aimee. I know you'll do great. I hope you're able to take time for yourself as we both know how important that is.
