Mother’s Day was just a few days ago. I suppose most of us are aware of that. This year for Mother’s Day I received a couple of gifts that were inspired by Bible verses!
The featured image of this post is actually the picture of the back of my t-shirt. My husband and I my kids bought me this shirt. I don’t know if it was because of the pandemic or if my husband went in knowing that he wanted to get me something inspirational. Either way, I am beyond happy with this beautiful mint green t-shirt. “Let all that you do be in done in LOVE.” A whole line of apparel by Blessed Girl. I almost can’t wait to get out and go shopping so I can see what else is available.
The second bible inspired gift I received was this sign.
This sign came from my friend Jess. Jess is my kids’ stepmom. Yesterday when James and Jordan came back from their Dad’s house they had this in tow. How beautiful. It matches our family room perfectly and looks amazing up on the wall. I am honored that Jess decided that she wanted to give me a gift. Even more so, that she said “I saw it and thought of you”. A statement piece with a bible verse on it, made her think of me.
I do wrong, I do wrong a lot. My patience wears thin, I snip and I snap. Grace is something that I am working on, but I still have a long way to go. Every morning though, I start my day with the Bible App. I am reading through the entire bible in a year. Something that I have always wanted to do and in 2020 I am making it a reality. At any given time I am doing 2 or 3 bible plans. The first thing I do in the morning is read all of my verses, this is what I need to get my day started on the right foot.
It makes me proud that people around me know how important the words of the bible are to me. I like to think that I let people know about this in such a way that does not make them feel like I am doing something better than they are. That isn’t “this is the way you should think”. I just want people to know that these words get me through, that they inspire me to be a better person. I am not afraid to be public about my love for God and the Bible, but I am also not worried if you feel the same. Just as long as you respect me and my views, I will surely listen to you and yours.
