{ Motivational Monday }

This old window frame came from a garage  at my Papaw's and Mamaw's house.  I remember it so well from my growing up years......
the green shingled roof, a "tool box" that Papaw built on the inside of the building,  and the black snake that Papaw let reside there because it killed mice.

The snake was my main reason for staying out of the garage.

When it fell down from neglect I wanted the window frames and that old tool box door.  (because of the possibility of lead paint I put a sealer over itThis hangs in our bedroom on a wall near me so I can look at it and reflect on the words.

If you follow me on Facebook, here's what I posted to go along with this pic yesterday.....

So very thankful that because of God's GRACE I have salvation and He gives me HOPE each and every day. If I'll only TRUST I can BE BRAVE to face each trial because I have His written word to guide me. What a privilege to be able to PRAY to Him about anything and everything. Giving THANKS today.... and every day.... to my heavenly Father for His love and blessings.

I  having inspirational quotes and pictures in our home.
 I can look at them and say a little prayer or just smile because I know the truth behind the words.

HOPE each of you has a Marvelous Monday!!!
