Masterpiece Monday and Mom's Night Out Giveaway!

M- Morning comes...O God help me to...
O- Overcome and Overflow with...
N- New Love from You and...
D- Dare to be Bold in each...
A-And every Moment, Monday...it is
Y-Yours God...may it be your Masterpiece

Monday's can be R.O.U.G.H. They usually come with a bit of regret from weekend mistakes, or they just feel overwhelming due to a weekend maybe jam-packed with activity (maybe not as much time with God as we needed- just speaking about ME right now)...

I was ironing my clothes, getting a PowerPoint presentation printed out for work and noticed I had a few minutes to write. And I felt the Holy Spirit whisper...today is my Masterpiece because YOU are my Masterpiece...

Despite any mess from the weekend, any heartache, any mistakes, and too-much busy, God is the God of Graces Being New Every Morning. Great is His Faithfulness. One of my ultimate favorite Monday Morning (and every morning) verses...

Lamentations 3:22-23
22 The Lord’s loving kindnesses, indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness
And I HAVE to share this with all of you because it was on my heart last week and I forgot...have you seen Mom's Night Out? You HAVE too and this scene I am sharing is AMAZING. Remember- you are enough, just be YOU, God will take care of the rest!

Monday Masterpiece....

Tell me about yours! I will pick one comment and send you a copy of Mom's Night Out. I have no affiliation with this movie- I am not blog-saavy enough to get sponsors, so this is just all me, wanting to send an amazing movie to a Mama and I need YOUR encouragement today- tell me how God makes Monday a Masterpiece for you! I think it would be awesome to see how God makes a Masterpiece of your Monday sweet sister! I will be dropping by later on to comment as well!

Lots of Love,

Liz

It's still early so my Monday is still a mystery, not yet a masterpiece but I remain hopeful. I found your blog a couple of weeks ago through a shared link on facebook. I am so thankful to have found your voice! Thanks so much for sharing your faith and outlook on life. It's nice as a working mom to see that there are others out there with similar struggles. It's also nice to be reminded that we all make it through to the other side of these struggles with faith on our side. It's Monday...I indeed need the Lord's loving kindness and unfailing compassion. Thanks for sharing your favorite Monday morning verse!
...and while typing this comment, God made my Monday a masterpiece....amazing! I just received the most loving words from my husband concerning a topic that I'm sure most married couples have encountered at one point or another in marriage. Our conversation levels are at odds of late. I feel the need to connect more with him than we have been recently and I made my feelings clear. He responded with loving kindness & understanding.
Thanks for helping me to receive his words with more weight and importance than I might have had I not been in search of my Monday Masterpiece!

My Monday Masterpiece was receiving an encouraging comment on my FB page from a college roommate that I haven't hear from in a long time. It truly TRULY touched my heart that she would take the time to connect with me.

Emily- I am SO sorry! Can you send me your address again? I cannot seem to find the thread where you sent it to me and I want to mail your movie out. Thanks again for reading and commenting on my blog!
