Lest We Forget :)

We all need encouragement...this encouraged me today as I slept in and got a late start on my chores. The bigger picture is that I have neglected to follow my schedule...which in turn leaves me grumpy and I tend to take it out on my children.
"Remember that suffering caused by sin does not mean God has not forgiven us. Though we fall and are down for a moment, God picks us up again and prevents us from being utterly destroyed." Debi Pryde's SECRETS OF A HAPPY HEART
1John 8-9 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Are you discouraged because you have stumbled yet again today- perhaps in the very same area? Don't be resigned to just sit in it and count the day as ruined. MOVE FORWARD. He wants to fill you RIGHT NOW! :)

I never thought about the time difference until now. You already have your Monday post up and it's only Sunday night here. What's the time difference between Okinawa and the states?

Thanks for the encouragement. I definately needed it today. I have such "bad" days with my children sometimes, and then I go to bed and wonder if it is me being selfish again. It is nice to be reminded agian, the God is so faithful to forgive us over and over again. Thanks agian. ALso, I'm glad I now know the time difference also, I've tried to figure it out, but I guess I should've just asked. DUH!
