A Timely Reminder

My husband could tell you some funny stories of how often I need a reminder. Just yesterday it was, "Glenda, there is an empty pan on the stove and the burner is on." (opps ~ I had moved on to cleaning the bathroom and had forgotten.)

Even more, I need constant reminders of truth from God's Word. I think God understands our need for timely reminders ... as the word remember shows up 148 times in the Bible.

In Titus 3:1-2 Paul says, "Remind them to...

     *be submissive to rulers and authorities

     *be obedient

     *be ready for every good work

     *speak evil of no one

     *avoid quarreling

     *be gentle, and

     *show perfect courtesy toward all people."

This is a timely reminder for me as I begin this new week.

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens" ~ Glenda style. (no kittens on my favorites list) 

Here are a few of my current favorite things ...

1. While you are shopping for school supplies, pick up for yourself, my new favorite pen.

The Infinity Write Tool by "The Write Dudes" is a great fine point pen. I love how smooth it writes and it does not bleed through the page when I underline in my Bible. I found it at Target and it is much less expensive than my former favorite pen.

2. Making birthday treats for our daughters with gluten and sugar intolerance has been a challenge, until we discovered the Baby Cakes cookbooks. I turned our favorite cake recipe into cupcakes for Christy's birthday.

They are also vegan, so if that is a need in your family, you will love this cookbook.

3. And I have saved the best for last. I just cannot get enough of our almost five month old grand baby. I took this picture last week and it is my new favorite.

Those cheeks, those eyes, that nose and lips and her fingers ... oh my. There is no favorite that compares to this one. She is a delight.

What are your favorite things this summer?
