what is victory?

"...because victory does not mean a clean house and an able body, obedient children or a productive day. it means choosing love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. again and again. over and over. every new minute of every new hour...."

~ Annalea Hart (read entire post here on her blog)

but it sure is nice when our hubbies' notice our efforts, isn't it?
This note and goodie was waiting for me by my computer when I got up this morning.
(and yes, I ate the chocolate before I had my breakfast. :)
So, here's to a "productive" day or responding in love and all the other fruits of the spirit! Help me, God, to honor you today in all I say and do!


  1. such a cute note. yes, chocolate does help.

    let's have a victorious week!

  2. what a sweet hubby you have!!! (and how lucky he is:)
