Skittles


Hi, y'all! 

I know I haven't posted in a while, so here's something to read...

A couple weeks ago in church, our pastor talked about how often, when he was upset, he'd go grab some candy...chocolate or Skittles, preferably.  The chocolate bit had all the ladies laughing.

The point of the message was that we are too easily satisfied.  Why would we be satiated with some cocoa and sugar when we can have the peace that passes all understanding from our Lord and Savior?

On a personal note, I'm all for earthly comfort (and chocolate!).  We were made to enjoy our life here, why else would we have taste buds, eyes, ears, noses?  We were not, however, made to substitute earthly comforts for what Jesus wants to offer our souls.

I am guilty of being too easily satisfied in many areas.  But, I also have tasted the comfort of the divine presence of my Jesus, nearer and dearer than any thing else.

So what does the squirrely picture of Benji have to do with Skittles? 

Nothing, I just thought it was cute...

I'm sure he'd like to eat some, though!

Do you have an email I can email you at Shelly? My school blocks some things on my computer so I can't get all of your site here and I have a question about your friend Brittney.
Thanks

I'm guessing you were at DCV since I know Robb's got a major sweet tooth??? ;)

I saw the title before scrolling down and started laughing! :) I think I'll always remember Robb's message when I see Skittles. :)

Very cute picture Shelly! And I wanted to let you know I think it's wonderful what you did for Brittney and her family. I know how hard it must be for her to be so far away since you guys are so close. I hope for a way that they can stay in their house. Prayers are powerful and God has a perfect plan.
