What a beautiful portion of Scripture! 

There are times though when I do become offended (to disturb, annoy or cause to fall or stumble) and feel that I am justified in feeling the way I do. But then I have to stop and ask myself why? Why am I feeling this offense? Is it something in my life (sin) that has me feeling that offense? Am I loving others as Jesus loves me? Am I living in such a way that I refuse to change? Am I trying to hide something from those around me? Do I allow the law (the Word of God) to bring about the peace that I so desperately need?

Great peace have they which love thy law: 
and nothing shall offend them. 
~Psalm 119:165

Why do I constantly need to be reminded that the way to true peace comes from the Word of God? If I am without peace, I need to spend more time with the Prince of Peace (Jesus).

Are you in need of peace? Spend time in the Word of God today and ask Him to give you His peace.

Unexpected Guest

We caught this little guy who decided to take up residence under our deck. He sure is cute but certainly one of those unexpected guests that are a nuisance to have hanging around for too long.

My husband set up a live trap, put some of the woodchuck's favorite greens inside and after a couple of days, he finally wandered into the trap. No need to worry, he wasn't harmed in any way but is now taking up residence elsewhere!
