Getting Prepared


























Savannah is preparing for a boat ride with Papa. Required apparel is her life vest and she proudly wears it while waiting for Papa to finish getting the boat ready.

Many times we face life without the required apparel. Our days begin with speed and lack of vision. When things do not go well, we wonder why? Today, lets take a lesson from our sweet "Savannah Faith." Let us slow down and prepare our heart, body, and mind for each day. Let us begin with prayer and time with our Heavenly Father! Wear GODS apparel with a heart of victory and preparedness. Begin each day ready for all HE has for you and enjoy the ride.


Learning to live,

Andrea

Dearest Andrea,

I just love you!!!

I love the pic of your sweet grandchild and the pic of you and your husband in the post before this one. You are so blessed with a beautiful family.

You have blessed me today with your heart thoughts...but then you ALWAYS do my friend.

Big Hugs,
Alleluiabelle

You always have a great way to teach us a simple lesson.
I can't believe that is Savannah. When did she grow up?

She is so cute! Adorable. And you are gifted with making analogies in a concise and easy to understand way. Praise God!

Have a great weekend!

Joyce said...

I have a busy day and I kinda jumped right in...thanks for the reminder to go back and get my 'life jacket' : )


Have a great weekend!

Beth E. said...

Amen, Andrea! Thanking God for being our "life jacket", especially during turbulent times of our lives. My brother and family could not have made it over the post two weeks without Him.

Nancy said...

What a good word about being prepared and taking time. I needed that today with all of the business.

Love the colorful life vest. Makes little ones want to wear them.

Tracy said...

Good word. Sometimes I let myself get "too busy" and neglect the most important things.

Adorable picture!

Barbara said...

Great words....and beautiful child! How often we are just too busy....

Christy said...

"Enjoying the ride" with Jesus is like riding the dessert highway in a convertible with the top down, standing up in the back seat,lifting both hands in the air, head back and closing your eyes.

Someday we will know how to really fly.

Blessings for the weekend.
Christy

Rita said...

What a wonderful post, Andrea. We do need to be prepared, just as Savannah is prepared for the boat ride. Thanks for reminding us.

abitosunshine said...

A very cute reminder, thank you!

Mocha Momma said...

Great reminder. Savannah is sure a cutie.

I notice a big difference in a day that doesn't start with me reading God's Word and getting prepared.

Take care and have a fun rest of the summer,
Nannette
