Here is the verse for today.
1 Thessalonians 5:8
But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.
When I woke up this morning and took the dog out I saw all the things in my garage set up for the garage sale. I instantly started to cry. There are so many toys that we are getting rid of that have special memories. It seems like we are coming to the end of an era here and its hard to not be emotional. Here we are with the kids growing up and not needing the same type of toys, my youngest starting kindergarten and preparing to move out of this great neighborhood. There are so many different things to think about. This verse reminds me to focus on my self control and not get upset or angry, just take each action and situation with faith and love because no matter what happens in this life it will get better because of my salvation. These are tools to give me strength.
