Do it right!!!

Wise Old Owl Designs
Several years ago.....when I was searching for a Bible verse to go along with my Wise Old Owl Designs.....
.....I chose Ecclesiastes 9:10.....

Whatever your hand finds to do, 
do it with all your might!

I love this verse of scripture because it reminds me of my Momma.
When I was growing up, she would tell me....

"if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right".

Do we ever actually "get over our raising", as the old saying goes?!?!?
I don't think so.

We went to a 50th wedding anniversary celebration for some precious friends of ours this past Saturday and I loved what their son said when he gave his speech.  He spoke about how blessed he was to have been raised by Godly parents.  Often, we don't realize what a true blessing that is until we get older, do we?!?

 In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

Blessings,

Deb

Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
