Today On Saturday
When I first started blogging I thought I would do it for a little bit
while the garden was growing and then I would stop. I didn't know
I would be doing this as long as I have now, nor did I think I would ever
have as many people I call friends coming by to read my thoughts. I did not
know that my life would be so profoundly changed. It had been awhile since
I told you how much you all mean to me.
Each time I write a post or leave a comment I get braver. When I first started
blogging, I hate to mention how many times I went to leave a comment and
then chickened out.
Receiving comments though that still boggles my mind. I just wanted to thank
you for taking the time out of your day to tell me what you think. I appreciate
each and every one.
I am re-posting a blog I wrote about his time last year. I still love it and it is to
me very personal. God gave me these when I was going through some of the
deepest waters I have ever walked. Each one is special because they got
me through dark days and dark nights and today I can look back and see
that never once were we alone. God does great things, even when it isn't
what I wanted. Sometimes God allows things worse than you could
have imagined and then you see how the whole time you were safe
in His loving arms.
"A pearl I'm told, is a wound healed."
" God, she said, " Carefully and lovingly takes broken
pieces of our lives and glues them back together again."
We ponder God's withholding or bestowing,
and while we pine for what was never given,
and what was taken,
Today slips through our fingers.
Make me faithful, Lord. Make me humble enough
to keep me on doing what I know I am supposed to
be doing, and joyfully expectant of finding you close
by while I work.
My rules for life:
Faithful is HE who calls you, and HE also will bring
it to pass.
Pray without ceasing.
IN EVERYTHING give thanks; For this is
God's will for you.
(1 Thessalonians 5:16,17,18,24)
Thanks for allowing me the joy of sharing my heart today.
Have a very beautiful weekend.
