W, X, Y and Z.

Well, friends, the 26 letter journey has come to an end. If you have traced the No-Regrets steps during this last month, you may have picked up a new habit, pursuit, or perspective along the way. Here are the last four...thank you for those of you who've brainstormed with me. Z is for Zeal. n: great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of an objective. May that objective be godly and glorified living in motherhood.

Y is for Yelling. Yelling ultimately says more about the person without self-control than it does about the person being yelled at. Yelling is really emotional manipulation--and it doesn't honor the Lord...even if it makes us feel better. Note to self: try praying before speaking out of anger.

X is for Xenophile. This is perhaps my favorite word of all. n: an individual who is attracted to foreign peoples, manners, or cultures.

W is for Worry. Let's remember that our children belong to the Lord. We are merely stewards, entrusted with their care.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."

Proverbs 3:5-6

 

Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Philippians 4:6-8
