“Don’t carry a grudge; while you’re carrying a grudge, the other guy’s out dancing.” —Buddy Hackett | pancakes

Recently my patience has been tested by the inconsiderate. So I close my eyes & count to ten. I let the emotions pass through me & then I let them go. I don’t hold grudges. They’re too heavy. Hate is too great a burden to bear. “The other guy” can keep the negativity. I’ll keep living love. And speaking of love… I broke out our new griddle Sunday morning & whipped up a batch of delicious pancakes topped with syrup & raspberries. So yummy. Flap jacks & April sunshine, love all around! | pancakes | pancakes | pancakes | pancakes | pancakes | pancakes

“But I will tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.

And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.

But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.”

(P.S. If you look to the left of Matthew in the last photograph, you can see the top of Bella’s little head. How cute is she!?)

    Awesome post! I need to remember these things when i am sitting in traffic. Lol. I have to pray and ask God for lots of patience when i am surrounded by idiots. Lol. They probably think the same about me. I agree with Lou, awesome pictures. They look lovely on my new IPad.
