gloomy day or not...

maybe next week i'll get back to normal posting

because i WANT to

i have recipes (so many recipes!) for you to try
thursday's ten lists brimming with ideas and fun stuff
wedding details to share with those who couldn't be there
our penny-pinching
random thoughts, as per usual
stories of my faith growing
updates about the amazing ways God continues to work in our lives
things that are changing, things that are improving

but today
i am at work, first of all
and it is rainy
and gloomy

i refuse to be gloomy too
because bottom line?

Papa is good.

Romans 8.14-17 

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves.  Instead, you received God's Spirit when he adopted you as his own children.  Now we call him, "Abba, Father."  For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God's children. ;And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God's glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering

This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It's adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike "What's next, Papa?" God's Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what's coming to us—an unbelievable inheritance! We go through exactly what Christ goes through. If we go through the hard times with him, then we're certainly going to go through the good times with him.
(the Message)
isn't that good news for a gloomy friday? or any other day of the week? :-)
