“It has been a loooooooooooooong and hectic day. I will get to that outpouring of grace tomorrow!”
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.
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!

Winter in the south
smiling . . . cool and sunny day
memories of snow

When I was a child, I loved laying in the grass looking up at the sky . . . I thought of who else, in some distant place, might be sharing it with me. Birds flew about tweeting and I wondered what they said.. When clouds came in, I thought not of storms but of the interesting shapes . . . “that one looks like a bear!” Even when it rained, I loved watching the droplets bounce off surfaces looking like tiny mirrors reflecting a world that fascinated me.
Clouds over my head
Gentle wisps of change
