My Sunday Blessings!

Psalm 23
(For the Work Place)
The Lord is my real boss, and I shall not want. He gives me peace, when chaos is all around me.
He gently reminds me to pray and do all things without murmuring and complaining. He reminds me that He is my source and not my job.

He restores my sanity everyday and guides my decisions that I might honor Him in all that I do. Even though I face absurd amounts of e-mails, system crashes, unrealistic deadlines, budget cutbacks, gossiping co-workers, discriminating supervisors and an aging body that doesn't cooperate every morning, I still will not stop---for He is with me!

His presence, His peace, and His power will see me through.
He raises me up, even when they fail to promote me. He claims me as His own, even when the company threatens to let me go.

His Faithfulness and love is better than any bonus check. His retirement plan beats any 401k there is! When it's all said and done, I'll be working for Him a whole lot longer and for that, I WILL BLESS HIS NAME!!!!!!

You are the total Queen over cigarettes.

Since I'm here can I get some of that tea & poundcake??

As for the card swap, it started last week. I'd go to Ann's blog & contact her, so you can get in on the fun!

Mwah!

Congratulations on your smoke-free progress, my dear! Keep it up! Now if I could go Donut-Free or Fast Food-Free for as long as you! I need to get your cookbook!

Lookit that...you're getting there. You can do this Jeannie, I have faith in you! How are you feeling on day 28 of this purging?

Yaya said...

What?? Why??

Tanielle said...

Don't stop...I love reading your posts! I am sorry whatever has happened!

LadyStyx said...

Who the HELL said you were background noise? Tell us and we'll go throttle them. Dont EVER let anyone make you feel that small.

Kristina P. said...

What happened, Jeannie? You are NOT background noise. Your blog makes me smile and cheers me up!

The Wife O Riley said...

Last night I was watching Twilight and I remembered a review you posted back in November. I scoured your blog until I found it again, and read it to my husband.

See how important and entertaining you are for my little brain to remember that?

I'm sorry someone made you feel like you're background noise, but it's not true!

Amy said...

Come back! Come back, wherever you are!! :)

Punkn said...

You are so NOT background noise. Whoever was stupid enough to say that is the one who should quit blogging. I enjoy reading your blog and your comments.

What a beautiful picture and an even better Scripture! Good job Jeannie!

And what did Kristina mean by "background noise"? Who or what is messing with my friend?

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

Aw, hon, I'm glad you can find the silver lining and/or at least one happy thought - in anything. Seriously, God has blessed you with that gift.

(((HUGS))) Not sure what happened, but it seems like a hug is needed.

Nina said...

I could stare into that picture all day long....
