Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? Mary Oliver

Meditate on this

Colossians 3:2-3 says, "Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hid with Christ in God."

Parents, wives...Do you set your mind on things above? Do we complain or proclaim? Do we build up, pointing those around us to something greater, or do we discourage...pointing out the negative, trying to "help" our loved ones "grow?"

We can and will win those we love over to the love of God when we become a SWEET fragrance of the LOVE of Christ. Try it, say something positive, point out a beautiful sunset, bless someone with a compliment, quote a verse, sing a song, write a poem..with all the negative in our culture we need to be the counterpoint..

Phillipians 4:8 says, "Finally, brothers (sisters), whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things."

Dear friend,

Consider to join us for A Wonderous Woman Retreat
on August 13,14,and 15

The Wonderous Woman retreat program leads and encourages every woman to connect to all facets of her purpose and value. Our approach is to create experiential retreats in beautiful venues where you can connect to your mind, body and spirit.

It's easy to take care of everyone else in our lives, but we tend to forget about ourselves.
