[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t's June 1st....time for another memory verse!!! As I mentioned last month, my heart has been dealing a lot with Control. And Contentment. And Plans.  It's funny how God works - I decided months ago that I wanted to talk about these things at my speaking event coming up on June 12th and He has certainly provided me with some information and insight.  Raleigh and I are right in the middle of giving God a huge chunk out of our trust cookie right now.  We want to keep that ooey-gooey bite all for ourselves but we know we've got to hand it over.

Because it was really God's cookie all along.  He made the ingredients, He provided me the money to buy the refrigerated package, and He allowed me to choose to eat the cookie all by myself or give Him a portion.  He didn't have to give me the cookie in the first place but He did.

That's how God works.

Anywho, here's this month's memory verse.  A sweet friend shared this treat with me so I thought I would share it with you too.  Here goes:

[quote]The plans of the heart belong to the man, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the LORD weighs the spirit. Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established. Proverbs 16: 1 - 3.[/quote]

Ain't it somethin'?  May you enjoy your cookie this weekend my friends.

Me & A

Till next time, let your light shine!

Blessings, christen

[box_dark]Don't forget that we will start “Back Porch Wednesdays” next week!  Here, we will close our eyes, feel the warmth of the summer sun, and the gentle breeze of the ocean.  We will be taken to a place of peace that will help us breathe a little easier.  Won’t you join me?

Spread the word about Back Porch Wednesdays to your friends on Facebook.  We all need a get-away!
