Typos, e-mails, and restoring such a one….

I started a new job in December. I’m a virtual EA (executive assistant) for a company based in Atlanta, Georgia.

So I went to all that trouble and took all that time and put all that pressure on myself based on an unrealistic expectation of what a good wife was. Sometimes we set expectations for ourselves when it comes to God no one could ever live up to….

Blessing….

I was flipping through my journal this morning and ran across this scripture that I wrote down about Jacob blessing Pharaoh. I thought that was so interesting. And in honor of President’s Day, I thought I’d post it today. I love our great nation, even with all its flaws. I’m so thankful to live in the land of the free and home of the brave, and I’m thankful for all the leaders who have gone before us and sacrificed so much to bring us to where we are as a nation……Genesis 47:7 says….
