Have you ever drank from a square cup?  I hadn't until this morning.  Recently, well this past Christmas I went on a tour of homes, in one of the homes the bedroom was decorated in French Country.  I fell in love with it.

Loved the curtains
And the side table.

I've always loved this style and have tried to put some of it in my home.  

Now back to my square cup.  Yesterday my sister and I spent the day shopping.  I had been looking for a cup to match with my bedroom, (silly huh!)   I found one but it was square, I loved it anyway.  Now never have had drank from one, it took me a few minutes to figure out how to, do I drink from the side or find a point and use it like a spout? 

 I found it difficult at first, I didn't give up,  I used it both ways.  Those of you that know me or have been reading my post for awhile know that I am not a journalist.  I do my best to get what I want to say in words as best I can. In my morning devotional I read James chapter 1(kjv).    I found it interesting, can be like a square cup..trails and troubles comes upon us and we may not know how to handle I do this? or that? or what?  I found the answer in verse 3, when difficult times comes upon us we should "count it all joy when we have trails,  knowing that faith worketh patience"  Patience means to have staying power or the ability to endure.  In my daily life, as in the square cup, I trust that by faith and God's grace I can learn and grow from difficult times.  
2 Corinthians 12:9

May your cup run over with Blessings!
(Psalms 23:5)
