{ Wednesday's Words - Courage and Kindness }

I've shared before my love of cartoons and Disney movies.  Pappy indulged me by watching Cinderella with me recently.  There was a part of the movie that really touched my heart.  It was when Cinderella was just a little girl and her Momma was dying and this is the advice she gave her daughter......

"Have courage and be kind".

Courage - strength in the face of pain or grief

Joshua 1:9
This is my command—be strong and courageous! 
Do not be afraid or discouraged. 
For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.


Kind - generous, helpful, and thinking about other people's feelings

Ephesians 4:32
Instead, be kind to each other, 
tenderhearted, forgiving one another, 
just as God through Christ has forgiven you.




HOPE your Wednesday is Wonderful!!!

Breathing in Grace,
