Over the weekend, Mama and I spent some quality time with one of my friends and her mother watching, in an ironic setup, Wives and Daughters. I have to say, I very much enjoyed the time chatting, snacking, and just enjoying each others company while we treated ourselves to a movie marathon.
Myself and our mamas!
And myself and our friends.
The night was very pleasant and fun and Mama and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Its always nice to have some Mother-Daughter Time!
The next morning, Mama and I took my grandmother to the airport and assisted in getting her ready to fly back to her home. On the 1 1/2 drive home from the airport, Mama read me a beautiful story from a book a friend had given her. It spoke of being set apart like a china plate in relation to being set apart as a Christian. The verse which the story was inspired by is found in 2 Timothy 2.
"But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work."
2 Timothy 2:20-21
I want to be set apart. To be prepared for every good work. To be both sanctified and useful for the Master... Do you?
