Palate cleanser



Sometimes I need to come back to the center of all things.





For the rest, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever modest, whatsoever just, whatsoever holy, whatsoever lovely, whatsoever of good fame, if there be any virtue, if any praise of discipline, think on these things.  
-- Philippians 4:8

  1. And Jesus reminds us:

    "These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you shall have distress: but have confidence, I have overcome the world."

    - John 16:33

  9. As the craziness spins around us, we have our center. Thanks and Praise be to God.

    1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

    John 1:1-5

  14. Love these. I also find this scripture really comforting.

    Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

    Hebrews 4:14-16.
