Today's Thought

" We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
New Testament 2 Corinthians Chapter 4 verses 7, 8, 9, 16,17 and 18
Well now, I couldn't have said it better myself!
What is your focus today?
Love, Rachel

It is interesting what I see in the mirror and what I feel inside. I do feel renewed and rejuvenated everyday, but see an old lady in the mirror. My focus today is to once again thank God for all of my blessings!! May your day be blessed. Sally
