At Your Wits End?


Surely many of us are at our wits end having coped with the Corona Virus for many weeks. Have you ever wondered where that phrase came from…wits end? Believe it or not, it comes from the Bible. I’ve been reading the Psalms this month and read this in Psalm 107:27: They reeled and staggered like drunken men; they were at their wits’ end. And verse twenty-eight goes on to say, Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. 

It’s fun to learn where different sayings originate and it’s reassuring to know that God will bring us out of our distress. Happy Wednesday.

 

A Piece of Cake


We’ve all heard or spoken the phrase, “It’s a piece of cake!” or “It was a piece of cake!” or “It will be a piece of cake!”

This well known idiom is a way of saying something was very easy to accomplish. Sometimes our days are not so easy to get through and we need someone to encourage us with this lovely message that I received in my inbox last week. Happy Saturday.
