I know the joy you had at that moment in time. Yes, we serve a Good God who meets our needs.

What a beautiful picture! Isn't it amazing to have a God who doesn't become tired and is always watching over us?

Dear Saija,
we should never stop counting our blessings.
So often i just move on to the next problem, instead of holding on to His grace and daily care for us.

Just last week we were struck by an unexpected garage bill of 6000 dollars.
Gunnar went to write to the importer and to the three garages involved. I went to pray.

Two hours after Gunnar had sent his mails, the case was solved.
Nothing to pay for the unhappy couple (us).
The Lord is great. But he demands a certain effort from us too.
He bless you and Leo over and over again.
From Felisol

That calm water surface reminds me that our God remains totally unruffled by our stormy circumstances..simply because He knows, He's in control, always alert, never weary...we get into trouble when we view Him through our mortal eyes, our own experience..
Thank you for reminding me of His nature!

Is it really 2 years? Wow - time goes so quickly.
God is so good, he even created Lingonberries - you know I'm hooked on them!

Mimi said...

and such a beautiful sight God has given you...I know that it must be very relaxing and peaceful for Leo to live so close to such a grand view...

I tell you, that is amazing. God really did make a way for you and Leo, and so quickly! I was reading your blog around that time. :o)

Saija--I can hardly believe two years have passed since I've been logging in to your blog! I remember the days leading up to buying the condo and then realizing the dream. Wow--how time does truly fly. Thank you for bringing your light into the homes and workplaces of your blogging buds...your faith has been enspiring to me. Hope all is well--will be praying as winter cloaks your world in white and you warm yourself by the Light of the World.

Thinking of you and sending a greeting across the miles. We are on the eve of our Thanksgiving Day. Hebrews 12:28, what a comforting verse in your light of what has happened in India today especially. How terrible! No man can pluck us out of His hand. I'll be so glad to live in the 'kingdom that cannot be shaken'.~~~ I'm pretty sleepy...but looking forward to a new day, well, after a soak in the tub. I like to watch the televised Thanksgiving parade in the morning.
