focus mandy!!

"The days are coming," declares the LORD, "when i will raise up to David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land. In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which he will be called: The LORD Our Righteousness." - Jer. 23:5-6

we have had something going on every night this week and tonight will be no different. in just hours, our home will be filled with many of our Ranch college staff and i can't wait to see each of them, but i have to be careful...i have been trying to keep a lid on my energies as to not lose what this season is all about. if you are like me, you have to be very intentional about your time or your days can quickly turn into gifts to buy, food to make, and things to clean. this verse reminds me of the PERFECT GOD we serve... he is our righteousness!

so stop... have a some cider... stop...take a breath or two... stop..cuddle with your kids..stop...look deeply in your husband's eyes...stop...hug a at the stranger in the mall...

stop...thank Jesus for His gift...


  1. thanks friend - I needed that... I didn't realize that it was Christmas reunion weekend - oh it was many years ago that we shared our first cabin of girls together at Christmas reunion! Have so much fun and let everything else go!!!!

  2. thanks...I needed this too. I've been lying in bed praying, thinking, thanking....yet when I tried to fall asleep, sleep did not come. So, I opened my computer and here was your latest entry. I'm afraid I needed this scripture to remind me to FOCUS more clearly. Praise the wonderful Lord for his righteousness......I think I can sleep now. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas reunion with your staffers. See ya'll soon.

  3. Mandy. you are always so inspiring to me. I love reading your blogs! It makes me smile!
