“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet." (Matthew 5:13 ESV)
What do you do when your salt is showing?
When I feel like raw nerves, my insides exposed to the world?
That feeling that when a child pops a balloon you suck all the air out of the room.

These two pictures from Ann speak volumes to my heart.Time to sing: ♫ My Hope is Built on Nothing Less Than Jesus Blood Righteousness ♫. I don't have any answer today. No miraculous check in the mail. No change in someone's life style while I do all I can to search for Truth and Trust.
October Dare for today: A gift caught, let go and 1/2 way.
1) My son's morning kiss

Thank you Lord for life and love. Thank you for our salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord. Thank you for the voice to praise You. Thank you that if I don't hid and go numb you are there to hold me and carry me through another day.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:4-7 ESV)
