on old dusty memories

while the birds sing praise

Ah, the wind still blows

but peace is like a river

flowing through my soul.

His Plan

January 20, 2015

Don’t be discouraged . . . people say that all the time and the Bible repeats it over and over and still I am temped to respond rudely when I hear it!  (and sometimes give in to the urge 😦

Today, He wanted me to finally sew for a special someone.  My response?  “But my bad shoulder and my tremors . . . ”  He persisted.  I am not so fast . . . He said it’s not a race.

Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.


Indeed He has a plan and it might sound impossible but He enables those He calls.  Today He assured me I could still sew.  Tomorrow?  I will find out when I get there.  He will speak softly to my heart and hold my hand.

Dedicated to Adam  . . . today’s special someone!

and punctuated with clouds.

My silver lined soul!
