I hope you are all doing well. I haven’t done a monthly recap from the first time I posted Inventory Check- March. I hope to be a little more consistent in the future. August went by supper fast, time does fly when you are having fun.
I realised how small incremental changes can make a big difference in due time.
A quote that stood out the most: Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. –Melody Beattie.
My verse of the month– Ephesians 6: 11. Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. I taught Vacation Bible School at church for a week.The theme was on the Full armour of God. Lets just say when you teach you also learn a lot. I learnt so much form the kids and also the time spent in preparations for VBS. I had never really dug deep into putting on the full armour of God until VBS preparations.
Drinking– WATER!!! I have had so much orange Fanta lately. I know for a fact I need this water therapy!!
