We’ve been in our new house for about a month, and I’ve finally gotten the interior close to the way I want it. Now the fun begins; the yard! I started laying out the front flower bed yesterday and can’t make up my mind on the shape. I’ve decided on the plants, including a mango tree, an avocado tree, and maybe a pecan tree. Once our irrigation is in, we’ll add some grass; right now, it’s mostly dirt and weeds. It’s taking time, but we’re getting there at a steady pace. Good things take a little time, but remember God’s blessings are never late and come when they impact us the most. However, we must also be thankful for spiritual blessings; they are more precious than gold and silver and lead to contentment beyond any material blessing could ever satisfy. Don’t become disheartened by what is going on in the world. Be thankful the Holy Spirit has given you discernment between what is real and what is a lie; it will come in handy when people become fearful about circumstances that may appear to be devastating. Remember, God is in control; whatever happens in this world is part of his plan. I expect that we will all be blessed beyond measure very soon. It’s coming; wait for it!
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, Ephesians 1:3
