Our hearts are so deceitful, aren’t they? Thankfully, none of them were hidden from our Savior on that cross!

Are the two of you talking with anyone about it? Things are changed, but they can be changed for the better. Let’s get together–I’d love to have you over or am happy to make the trip there. Lub too.

1) It was topical! My spiritual thorn pushed hard into my side today. And then after feeling low about it some time in Scripture led me to James 3:2! We all make mistakes!

2) I got to thinking about weaknesses and how many of us CAN hide weaknesses. Some of us have weaknesses we can’t hide, they are out there for public consumption. And the ability to forge ahead even with such public weaknesses can give one the illusion of strength (yeah, this is sort of auto-biographical). That illusion gets created when people tell you how strong you are for pushing ahead and carrying on even with one’s very public weaknesses.

But just because someone has conquered (or moved past) public weaknesses it does not mean that they don’t have the same inward insecurities and weaknesses. The inner ones are the hardest! That much I know!

I am glad I found your blog!

It has been one year since Jason’s surgery and the only thing I miss is how much we grew in Christ. It’s not the same now, somethings changed. For a short time I was strong, I can’t speak for him, but I miss that time with Christ. It has assured me that He is and will always be sufficient for my needs. I fear of ever having to face Cancer again, and I KNOW….he will pull me through the thick of it. I even fear saying it……another weakness I guess.
I love you girl!!
Andrea

I tell people in the courtroom that the only person who gets to interrupt anyone is me, because I wear the black rob and am supposed to keep things running smoothly. I also tell them that I tried wearing the robe around the house but it just didn’t work with my kids!

And it can drive us to Christ. In my job, that sense of exaltation is all too prevalent. I mean really, how many people get called “Your Honor” not only daily, but all day long? It’s crazy sometimes. There is a constant need to stay focused on Christ and not on my own abilities (or lack thereof).

Thanks for the reminder today, Aimee. Nice job.

Tim

P.S. I just did a guest piece for Kim at Kingdom Civics on how retailers target us by watching what we do: http://kingdomcivics.com/2012/02/20/guest-post-being-targeted/. I hope you get a chance to check it out.

Really enjoy reading you. Always deep and thought provoking, insightful, which is just the way I love it. But most of all it’s biblical and brings us back to the cross and Christ. Thank you for your inspiration and your a delight to read! Wish I had more time to read you.

Cheated this morning on my schedule and took a break from writing to come and read you which I don’t regret at all! Ha ha …I will catch up later.

God bless, Ann
