Breaking, mending...

Well, it's been a weird week...Michael broke a bone in his wrist and had surgery Thursday, so I've been in Baton Rouge trying to strike a balance between "caring mom" and "obsessive, overprotective mom." (The latter is my natural inclination!) I was catching up on some Psalms this afternoon and was struck again by the power of God's Word. Like...

"The Lord has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy..."

and
"Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy..."
and
"Unless the Lord builds the house
its builders labor in vain..."


One of the things that really hit me in Bible study was the idea of "sowing" and "reaping." We sow God's word when we plant it...apply it in our daily lives. We have to sow the seed to reap the harvest...it won't do us any good to hoard the seed or even eat the seed. Hmmm.
So, how is it going with you? Any thoughts from God's word this week?

Man, that lesson apparently struck a chord with a bunch of our girls too! Powerful. Beth went back to it in the video also - I'd love for you to see it, Bec!
