So there's this game that
The Lord and I play.
Yes, I said that right.
A little backstory...
I always used to see the same numbers whenever I look at a clock.
I mean ALL the time; several times per day.
So, I was talking to God about it and asked if it was a sign for something.
I mean, it was just too frequent to not be SOMETHING.
I told God that because I didn't know of it being for anything else, I was going to consider it a personal little love note whenever I saw repeating numbers on a clock.
I know that He loves me all the time, but this would be something just for me.
Like a wink when no one is looking.
Whenever I see these numbers I say, "I love you Lord, thank you for loving me."
Well, I still see them all the time. I would venture to say that 9 times out of 10, when I look at the clock, it will be that way. They are the bright spots in my day.
And in a perfect example of God's faithfulness,
The other night I had a mini-crisis here at home with one of the kids.
This was something that freaked me out and panicked me like I can't even explain to you.
My jug was shaken.
I sat down, silently praying and seeking
and I click on my phone.
The above picture is what I saw.
I was reminded that it was all going to be alright. He was going before me.
And he loves me.
" Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints" Ephesians 6:11-18

Finally got the dresser painted that I will use as a sideboard.
It looks amazing!
I had planned to use a different dresser and do a bit of distressing to it. When it was done, it would've been like an oatmeal color with black distress marks. Pretty.
But, I loved the classic lines on this and decided I
wanted to just use some glossy black.
It turned out great.
We did the same thing for an old bookshelf that Paul's dad had made decades ago.
It turned out great as well.
