Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2 ESV) Heart to Heart Wednesdays seem to be our heart to heart days, maybe we’ll start having…Heart to Heart Wednesdays.

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. (Matthew 11: 28-30 ESV) Forward Friday! As with many, our thoughts have shifted to Irma and words associated with this storm.

Find yourself blessed to find one who will sharpen with iron. Though the words are sometimes harsh and/or hard to swallow know it is a blessing, as I have.
