7 Years . . . .?

Ooops! Look what I did!

I broke the back-of-my-hair-fixing-mirror!
Now that could be bad if I believed that a broken mirror brings 7 years bad luck!!

Well, I'm happy to say that I know that it doesn't. My fate is not in a broken piece of man-made glass, but instead, my life is in God's hands -- the hands of the very one who made the sand from which the glass was formed. I really have nothing to fear. It is wonderful to have the peace that is beyond understanding and to know that my future is under His control.

"Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by yo
ur name;
You are Mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
For I am the LORD your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior."
~ Isaiah 43: 1b -3

Sorry about your mirror and the mess broken glass makes. You know how well I know about that. ;)

I too am so thankful that I don't rely on silly superstitions. God is in control!

Do you know the Scripture song for the verse you put? "Fear not for I have have redeemed thee...."
I'll be singing that all day long now. That's a good thing! It's such a great reminder that yes, I may have to go through the fire and pass through the water....BUT He will be with me.

Have a blessed day!

So true. I quit believing in bad luck when we owned a couple of black cats. If we "did" get bad luck every time one of them ran in front of us, we'd be sad people indeed. LOL!

Might be bad luck for the back of your hair...
