Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

I am liking the ice water. I drink it all the time.
Love your background.

I realized today that one of my Magtag irons has melted and corroded on the plastic part that if for steam, so now it is and always has been, a dry iron. I still love it. I haven't checked the other one. I am afraid to.

Love your list of blessings.

#524 Women's Bible Study Groups

I hear you loud and clear! I treasure each of the 10-12 that attend each week. Tuesday we start Isaiah, and I can't wait! We just finished the gospel of John, probably the best study we've done so far.

I love your list. It makes me think of the same things that I am thankful for.... I notice you did not put Maytag or Rowenta irons on your list...... So sorry about your bad luck with irons... however, I am glad that you posted about them because I was wanting to get a Rowenta iron. I am not going to do it now. Thanks for saving me the money and disappointment.

Have a great week. Hugs, Lura
