Remembering To Keep It Humble


We celebrated a wonderful  accomplishment this weekend. After 25 years of night classes, my Brian earned his Doctorate of Education from the University of Missouri. He not only went to school all these years but he raised a beautiful family and did it all very well. I am so very proud of him and our family as we celebrate this achievement. He has worked so very hard. I married a school janitor and today I can introduce to you~ Dr. Shindorf.

This morning I am reading my devotion out of Devotions From The Garden. The author (Merriam) writes this morning about the humble little worm. The little  worm is ever working beneath the soil pushing the soil with her head all the while producing air and moisture to circulate through the soil. She is a great help to all gardeners. We benefit from her hard work yet never notice her. She even gives the soil great benefits from her castings~ if you know what I mean.  Worms work day after day unnoticed. 

Think about the people in your life today~ your parents, your neighbors, teachers, administrators…….. oh my~ none work as hard as dear ol' mothers. The people behind the scenes of your life that never seek the spotlight but work humbly behind the scenes deserve a Thank You.

I want to stay humble. The Bible says God gives grace to the humble. I need all the grace I can get~ how about you? 

James 4:6

But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

Today would be a great day to offer a simple Thank You for those humble servants in our lives that make our lives rich.  

Proverbs 16:19

19 Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Have a happy and blessed Monday~ remembering to keep it humble.
