Strength in weakness...

 "A Breezy Day" ~Charles Courtney Curran
It is easy to smile at people outside your own home....
It is difficult to be thoughtful and kind and to smile and be loving to your own in the house day after day, especially when we are tired and in a bad temper or bad mood.  We all have these moments and that is the time that Christ comes to us in a distressing disguise.
~Mother Teresa

My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.... 
for when I am weak, then I am strong...
~2 Corinthians 12:9,10

  1. I do love MT's quote and it is so true too. Guess thats why we come in families..to teach each other and to have someone to practice on! ;D

  2. Love the Mother Teresa quote -- so very true, isn't it? And, I certainly do give Him many opportunities to be strong in my weaknesses!
    Blessings,

  6. The quote is so true all except for at the grocery store. People have a hard time pretending to be nice there most of all...so Sara tells me. This is a good reminder especially as school begins and we all have to work together in a little more intense way than usual. :)

  8. Thank you so much for this post. I have felt so discouraged this evening by Christians with the anger and hate for the Muslim Mosque and the threat of burning the Koran. I know. I know. It's not all of them -- it's just... discouraging. I'm catching up on your RSS feeds and have your lovely song playing, Take Me the Way I Am -- honoring your husband. I'm reading these lovely gracious words of Christ's love. All that anger and fear in my own heart just melted. I have tears in my eyes. Thank you so much.
