~Sisters~... and a busy week :)

Whew! This week we've been running non-stop! Which is partially why this post is so short. :)

I've been trying to focus on being patient even when things feel overwhelming. This passage was a blessing to me today:

Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.
Romans 5:3-4

God uses days like these to work on my character!

The JOY of the Lord is my strength! :)
