Happy Monday !

I am the first to admit l try to plan out my week and blog post but sometimes life happens. I even have a planner (okay lots of planners) to keep me organized but good thing you can erase or cross out and start over.

Like today ! My hubby has the day off (I didn’t know about) but that changes plans. Then I forgot about my parents Anniversary (63 years) on my planner but that’s tomorrow post. I think that makes plan C : I am kinda on a roll today. Hopefully your day goes better it’s just another Maniac Monday!

Book review : In Shanna Noel book is a journal with lovely verses and a prayer for each day.Fully illustrated it makes a lovely gift to give or receive,

Its a wonderful devotional and I decided to decorate mine to bring it too life, As I read and pray over the daily verse. Lisa

2 Corinthians 12 :9 Verse:
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.


Grace is do honor or credit to (someone or something) by one’s presence.
the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.

Grow in Grace :

The one thing we all need to do more is to grow in the love of God and in His grace and knowledge and trust him in our time of need. Lisa

Difference between Thankful and Graceful * Wed planner

Today Wednesday post is about being Thankful and grateful ! 

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines thankful as “appreciative of benefits received”. It is a way of expressing appreciation with or without an act. … Gratitude is more like having a sense of thankfulness and the feeling is from within.

20181114_091251.jpg

Grateful and thankful are both positive feelings of gratitude. The big difference between grateful vs thankful is that grateful implies that you need others to be happy, while you can be thankful without being dependent on others or external occasions. Instead, you can always choose to be thankful if you choose to.

So my planner is about being thankful for what I have and grateful that I can share it with others-  I am both Thankful and Filled with Gratitude this Wends-day  morning. Lisa

30 days of Gratitude  to others :

I am Lucky we celebrate 2 New Years. Chinese New Year this year is Feb  5th,  And we celebrate  the Year of the PIG.

The  Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house. He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place.

Pigs have a beautiful personality and are blessed with good fortune in life.

 

We celebrate family and ancestors with food ,family and fun.  Lisa

September :  -from the Roman word Seven.  Is the seventh month as summer leaves and we turn to Fall. 

Birthdays : my nephew Grant .  he’s a Libra 

The two zodiac signs associated with the month of September are Virgo and Libra. People born from September 1st to September 22nd are members of the Virgo sign. As one of the zodiac’s most understanding and caring signs, a Virgo can be easily spotted by their innate compassion.

Flower is Morning glory
