Highlight of the Day:
Going out on the boat on Lake Livingston! It was such a beautiful day to just be out on the water. Also tubing with Brynn is the funniest thing ever. Her constant screaming and commentary the whole time made me laugh the entire time i was tubing!
Picture of the Day:
The pretty Lake Livingston!
Verse of the Day:
1 John 2:15-17
Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.
It's just crazy to think that everything we own and everything we've ever wanted and strive for in this world will pass away. So why are we so attached? Why are we so obsessed with the things of this world when we know that its all going to be gone one day? Everything that we stress over, everything we worry ourselves with everyday isn't going to exist one day. So why do we stress, why do we worry? It's such an easy concept, just let go. None of it truly matters int he long run so stop holding on to it. But yet its so hard to let go. We have been brought up being taught that these things of the world are important, that its life. But its not! This world is not ours and the things of this world is not ours either. We are given them, we are renting them in a way, to help us live out Gods will for us and then they will pass. So im challenging myself, and you, yes you, to re-evaluate life. Reset my priorities. Stop holding on to things i don't need. Stop wanting things i don't need. Stop trying to please myself and what i feel i need in this life. Realize whats truly important, living for God. Because that will last forever.
Thought of the Day:
Laughter is truly the best medicine. You can't think of negative, sad things when you are laughing. Its impossible. Just try it. Go ahead.......see? impossible. So when the next time your in a bad mood, find something or someone funny. I bet it will help. I just want to laugh all day! So make me laugh. Do it. I dare you. :)
