the LORD’s love is with those who fear him

“But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children— with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.” (Psalm 103:17-18)

Ask him what His will is

I find it interesting that when most folks pray they ask God to do what they want Him to do, instead of asking Him to do what He wants and knows is best, do we fully have an understanding of who He is? ~ His will be done. ~ Ask him what His will is, ask Him what He wants from you, most likely it will be a hard thing, but hey he is God and we are not, if we get that wrong there is no point in praying at all. ~ Penny Raine

Lilla Rose at the Franklin Rodeo 2017

Monday, after a long weekend … we spent 4 nights last week at the Franklin Rodeo with our Lilla Rose business, 4 nights talking to some of the nicest folks, made some good $$ to keep us in rodeo fees and diesel, listened to the same crazy rodeo clown every night, watched some great bronc riders and barrel racers, and overall had a great time with my daughters, it was exhausting, but lots of fun! Ask me how you can have this much fun and get paid for it

Again, you can read all about  why I sell Lilla Rose Flexi Clips here.

  

seeking to please or excuses why we can’t

as Christians who live to please God, we shouldn’t compare behavior to the worst possible option and see if it is too close to the line, we should compare to the best, most biblical pleasing to God option and see if it measures up. the excuse of, “it’s not as bad as .. ” is just that, an excuse. Aim for the goal, don’t settle with an excuse. ~ Penny Raine

be real

you are either all in or all out, there is no in between, and He listens to your heart not what you tell others #BeReal
“Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.” (Matt 12:30)

Life is about …

life is really not all about justifying our own opinions, life should be about obeying His Word, because next to that our opinions are worthless ~ Penny Raine

missing family members and Holidays

when you have missing family members, Holidays can be especially hard, I really really miss my Mom, and others, but yesterday was very nice, my family that celebrated with me is such a blessing, (thanks, y’all!) we overcome by focusing on the blessings of the moment, and being purposely grateful, there is healing in Jesus if you want it, sometimes it takes awhile, and His timing is best, but it is there, and He is faithful, I got through the day with no tears, and lots of joy, yay!

busy bees

Feeling about as busy as these bees this week, as a matter of fact my week so far has been full of bees, hay, berries, grandchildren, barnwood, horses, trailers, trucks, scheduling rodeos, mom’s day, ice cream, lots of prayers and more, all good, tell me something good going on in your life 🙂

these bees had decided to make a hive near our fruit trees, since our neighbor raises bees we gave him a call, he came over and did his thing, and they are now happily living at his house, I love folks who know what they are doing
