I love my recipe card holder!  I found her at a craft sale. For years she’s held recipes as I cook.


However, many a day she’s had a far more important task.


Sissy (as I often refer to her) holds recipe cards with a verse or quote.


She’s there for me when I desperately need a DoAhead Devo.


You see, when I’m in the thick of things and running like a crazy woman that’s when I’m more likely to trip.


But my helper stands close…holding the secret weapon.

 The phone rings. The person on the other end is unkind. How will I respond?


My 17 year old makes the same request for the 17th time…will I be patient?


Hubby is hungry.  I’m too darn tired to cook. What will I do?


Do you have a recipe card holder like Sissy?


Here’s the good news…she can be replaced with stick ’em notes (don’t tell her I said that.)


But what we can’t do without is the secret weapon.

 Maybe its a verse you heard on the radio or something a friend or pastor shared.


Perhaps you received the ultimate DoAhead Devo today and sat in His presence. You grabbed your quiet time basket and wrote out a verse.


You don’t know if you’ll need it but you honor the DoAhead and give it to your Sissy anyway.


Sure enough. It was right there. Right when you needed it most!

Your DoAhead Friend,
