this sacred journey,
is filled with sharp turns .. .
corners around which we cannot see,
but oh, the beauty He has placed there
just waiting for us!
Keep moving forward

IF you’re dealing with difficulties, there are 3 things to focus on!
Memories are not always heartbreakers. There will come a time when tears become joy as the love is still in our hearts. As I wrote something on a different time in my life, though I miss people, places, and things from back then, I also feel the joy and love that I felt then and still can feel IT.. At this moment my feet are cold because this artist feels the snow that had fallen . . and the glow of evening’s moonlight. I can see Mom’s smiling face watching me through the window and can recall her scurrying off to bed so I would not know she watched. She didn’t want to upset me. Silly Mama! IT NEVER DID!
This image was taken by me in the home I used to live in. Winter was steadily providing snow and I was stronger then and loved to go out in the middle of the night to shovel as I was a banker then and needed to get to my office. The moonlight reflected on the new fallen snow glowed so my yard lookedlike midday. There were always neighbors out doing the saame thing as me. We often had PJs on with storm wear. I can still feel the warmth of those times in my life!
Though it’s still winter,
with you always in my heart
i celebrate spring!

She stood in the corner alone and sad
and looking at the crowd, she wished she could join them
but did not.
People asked the band. . . .
“Oh, please play this!”
Still, she stayed in her corner thinking
“I don’t like this music!”
Did it NOT occur to her

[ Ask, and It Will Be Given ] “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.
