thank you for all the good wishes and sweet comments - in honour of my aging self! *grin* ... here's what the "old girl" looked like on the day ... the flowers were from my aunt ... wasn't that a thoughtful thing to do - to brighten up a mid winter birthday!
these winter days have been filled with reflection ... quiet times ... with scattered prayer thrown in ... it seems that there has been more sadness, than gladness lately ... but such are the times in a person's life - it is a checkered quilt, made up of many moments ... always though, underneath it all, is the knowing that God is still in charge and i don't need to carry worry around ... isn't it a comfort to know that God has a plan ... YAY LORD!!!
one huge blessings, these mornings in 2009, has been my devotional book which i just can't recommend enough ... L.B. Cowman's Streams in the Desert ... i'm glad the Lord put it into my hands for this year - it has encouraged my heart when i think of leo's health ... my sister's health, the sadness of final goodbyes - when leo's mom died ... God's timing is ALWAYS on time!!!
i'll close this sunday post with this thought from Streams ... may you be blessed today ...
"... We are able to have as much of God as we want. Christ puts the key to His treasure chest in our hands and invites us to take all we desire. If someone is allowed into a bank vault, told to help himself to the money, and leaves without one cent, whose fault is it if he remains poor? And whose fault is it that Christians usually have such meager portions of the free riches of God? ... ~Alexander Maclaren"
