Word-filled Wednesday

"Hey ladies, what do you think of my toupee?"
© Karen Kyle Ericson, all rights reserved.

It's so great to know God will never give up on me.  Even when:
  • I'm having a bad hair day; He sees my heart.
  • I don't have any money; I'm worth more than silver and gold to Him.
  • Things are not going my way; He helps my faith grow stronger.
  • I can't forgive myself; He waits patiently for me to accept His forgiveness.
  • Everything around me is crazy; He longs for me to know His rest.

"For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."  Matthew 11:30

When my husband and I saw this buffalo, we had to laugh.  We'd never seen such a hairstyle before.  But there's something about this guy that seems so familiar.  He thinks he looks good  : )   Even in those moments I think I'm lookin' good- He never gives up.

  1. I needed this encouragement, bless you.

  2. Karen, this sincerely blessed me today. It is something we know, but sometimes our heart forgets and begins to tell us ugly things. It is good to have a friend to remind us what is true. In addition to all of that, it made me smile. :)

  3. I'm so glad. Sometimes as I write, I'm reminding myself as well. God bless!

  4. I love this picture! LOL! Really made me smile!

    Great verse for today! Thank you for sharing!

  5. Hi Karen,
    A couple points you made I needed to hear today.
    "Things are not going my way; He helps my faith grow stronger." And "Everything around me is crazy; He longs for me to know His rest." I found out today of potential changes in my work schedule I am not liking one bit. These changes would drastically cut into family and church time. Thank you for sharing and God bless,

  6. Thanks for the post! Super encouraging for me! :D

  7. So glad you enjoyed it Tania!

    Ken- I'll say a prayer about this. Maybe God can turn it around for you. Businesses are struggling and making some crazy decisions right now.

    Joy- so glad it was encouraging for you. Life is hard for sure. This blog actually helps me out a lot, just focussing on truth.

    God bless you guys!

  8. love this photo with this verse. :) makes me smile.

  9. Love this photo and the verse you chose to go with it!

  10. I'm another reader who was encouraged by this post! I'm stopping by from Katie's site ... I've seen buffalo in the northern neck of our area, but never did one have a hair day like that! Sort of reminds one of those 'dread locks' that some people have the courage to wear! Lol! This photo definitely lightened my day! :)

  11. Thanks Deborah and Alida : ) We are a funny bunch aren't we? Animals are so great- glad God created them.
