a look back . . .


this pic of me, posing in the backyard, was taken yesterday ... the willow is even greener today ... spring has really sprung ... and my season of work starts tomorrow ...

what a season we had in between ... putting the house up for sale ... actually selling it ... packing and trying to find a new place ... then this rental one came up ... and the move ... i have a whole blog documenting my prayer and praise over each situation! the winter months have shown time and time again, how the Lord answered prayer ... though sometimes i get a head of His plans and want it (like a home of our own) yesterday - but ALL in HIS good time!

you know what did happen today? leo's boat and his truck both sold ... all it took was 2 phone calls ... they will be someone elses now ...

last september i blogged about leo's last boat ride of the season ...
click here ... it summed up my fear for our future ... God has been faithful ... we are still in transition ... but in the palm of His hand ...

well i think i shall step out and enjoy the sunshine ... as always, i hope the SON is shining on you today too ...

Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking and sings while it is still dark.

Sounds like you have been busy and I think we all like to think that we always know what we need but like you said it will be in his time and not ours.

In HIS time, in HIS time, He makes all things beautiful in HIS time...Lord please show me every day as YOU are teaching me YOUR way that YOU do just what YOU say, in YOUR time...

I think on that every so often...love that little song...sang it for a dear friend's wedding...who was a bit older when she married...she was glad she waited. Especially in the marriage dept. many have married in haste to long regret their choice. We can afford to wait on God's best...in whatever part of life it concerns! But that does not mean we won't have some angst along the way anyway, being so human as we are!! Blessings on you and your transparentcy is so refreshing and encouraging to your readers!

I love your posts....so inspiring to me...what a gift they are! I am in transition myself...maybe we all are in some fashion, i'm not sure, but its a time of growth for me and its painful at times...but I trust the Lord with my life, I tired to do it all by myself and failed miserably!!! Keep the faith in Him, your a strong woman!!! Hugs to you...xo

elizabeth ... what a lovely song ... i haven't heard it before ... yes, the best time, IS God's time ... :o) ...

minday ... aww, thanks for the encouragement ... i am just getting ready for work at the moment ... i had forgotten how tired i get from being away from home for 9 hours ... then i don't see leo much as he does sleep a lot ... but onward and upward *she says a bit groggily* ...
