I don’t know about you, but in my life and entirely too often, I tend to think I’ve got “it” all going on . . . totally together, and since my little efforts are nothing compared to what the Lord has planned for me, sometimes He has to “let me” bumble about some to get me to see differently and thus accept the bigger gift He has for me. It can get pretty dark out there sometimes before I catch on, but . . .
When it is dark enough, you can see the stars. Ralph Waldo Emerson

He is, my friends. He is totally crazy about each one of us. What prompted me to say this, I must admit, is that I got an email which was intended to sell me a product and that was the subject line. I admit, I wasn’t in a position to make a purchase financially so I deleted the ad, but I was still blessed by the reminder. He uses everything for out good – even marketing slogans. That being said, I admit that some days the hurdles in my life seem like mountains I’m neither able to get over or around. Do you have days like that? Happily, my faith and His love restore me and so this doesn’t become a permanent and fatal thing . . . so, as I write this I admit I’ve just had a procedure done to help heal an eye problem and am about to rest my eye but I saw a quote I really had to share and so I give you a bit of wisdom from Emerson:
The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson –
We know that with God all things are possible, but this quote says it in such a visible way. Sometimes I feel like a small acorn . . . that, however, does not have to be a drawback. The Lord has a purpose for each of us and we only have to let go and let Him. Blessings, y’all.
