Sorry I'm so late with my post!! It has been crazy today. I'm searching for a new car and it's stressful. I also had a catastrophe this weekend at the beach. We decided to go fishing on the little dock behind the condo. We had a great time and caught a bunch of fish...however, the wind blew the chair over that had my iPhone sitting in it. It should be sitting nicely on the ocean floor right about now. Talk about depressing!!! I'm still not over it. LOL My lovely husband did buy me the Pandora bracelet and surprise me with it on Saturday night though!! He is too sweet and it really did surprise me because he bought it so quickly! I can't wait to start getting more charms for it!! Anyway, I hope y'all had an amazing Mother's Day this weekend and were able to spend it with your mothers and/or your children!!
"So don't be too good or too wise! Why destroy yourself? On the other hand, don't be too wicked either. Don't be a fool! Why die before your time? Pay attention to these instructions, for anyone who fears God will avoid both extremes. Not a single person on earth is always good and never sins."
- Ecclesiastes 7:16–18, 20
If perfectionism is an issue at all for you, take heed. Trying to be "too good or too wise" can cause so much stress that it can destroy you. Realize the truth of the last verse: nobody is always good. Quit trying to be perfect! Yet this is not license to be wicked. The key is fearing God—realizing you are fallible, accepting God's provision for that, and doing what you can to avoid sin, while realizing you cannot be as good as God. Fearing God means acknowledging that he alone is God (perfectly good), and we are not.
