My final week for my fall challenge drew to a close. Jesus said in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled.” Going about our busy, hectic, crazy, stressful lives can detract from the inner peace we should feel. Sometimes it is most felt by the lack of joy we experience. Sometimes it is fear that we might not get everything done. Many things trouble our hearts each and every day as the weight of the world sits upon our shoulders.
This last week, I’ve continued things from prior weeks, but my focus turned to making dinner as a family. This week marks Thanksgiving in the United States and I’m preparing to head to NJ to visit with my inlaws. The final part of this week’s challenge state: Give thanks to God for the home God has given you to in which to create a haven for your family. I am grateful for my home and my family! I look forward to visiting with my extended family and sharing the love I have for them.
