I've always wanted to own my own bookstore/coffee shop, and this is what I want to call it. I actually hate cherries, except fresh Bing cherries. But honestly, a hot fudge sundae is not complete without a cherry. It's just that extra topping that makes it perfect. And that's what I want out of life...all the extras that God gives to make it "perfect" or at least a little closer to heavenly.

Cool Like That

I just told my mom last week that I needed to go look for some long sleeve shirts for Braxton since it's starting to get cool, and he wanted matching pjs for Christmas. (He thinks he has to match to sleep!) And guess what? One of my friend's sisters sent a bag of clothes with long sleeve shirts among other things we can definitely use and 2 sets of matching pjs in Braxton's favorite thing--Power Rangers. To top it all of...they were the Red Power Ranger which Braxton is going to be for Halloween. Not only that, but she had thrown in a few pairs of socks. I couldn't find any in the whole house while packing for our trip to Dallas on Friday... Isn't God cool like that? I need to be sure to point these things out to Braxton. God really does give us all that we need and want--better than the Lilies of the Field! Why is it we have such a hard time remembering that?!

Matthew 6:28-34

28"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
