5 years of blogging ...

The little birds trust God, for they go singing
From northern woods where autumn winds have blown,
With joyous faith their unmarked pathway winging
To summer lands of song, afar, unknown,

Let us go singing, then, and not go crying:
Since we are sure our times are in His hand,
Why should we weep, and fear, and call it dying?
It's merely flying to a Summer Land.
~Streams in the Desert

it's been 5 years since i started blogging ... 5 years of cyber fellowship with you, my blog buds, who love Jesus and want to be a light for Him in this world of ours ...

i have been on the receiving end of so much encouragement and prayer during this time ... my socks have just been blessed right off my feet - well - almost literally! *smile* ... THANK YOU!!!!

what the future holds for my blog ... i don't know? ... i seem to have taken a break from the computer this past 6 months or so ... my thoughts are sometimes disjointed and i don't get the posts written that i want too ... because of that, i am going to put the comment moderator on ... that way, if you don't have my e-mail address and want to leave me a more personal note - or give me your e-mail address, i can delete your comment and no one else will see it, if you want to keep it private ...

i am truly truly glad that God has placed each of you in my life ... at this time and for this time ... may He bless your socks off too!!!

the Sonrise which makes all the difference ...

our early snowfall really got me down ... well, for a day or two anyway! ...

however, God's word always puts everything in perspective - then prayer allows the feelings to follow ... we walk by faith, not by sight ... sight can also be spelled f-e-e-l-i-n-g-s for me ... and feelings need to be ignored when we know they are sending wrong messages and causing unrest within us ... bad feelings for me are triggered by cold weather and snow - such a downer, even tho' i was born in the land of ice and snow ... and moved to another land of ice and snow!!!

the bible says "in everything" to give thanks ... not necessarily "for everything" !

so this morning, when i watched the sunrise again on another day the Lord had made ... i rejoiced and was glad in it!

blessings on your week!

this was my sunrise, as seen from our living room window

Canadian thanksgiving

would you believe we got snow for this thanksgiving weekend???!!!! YIKES!!!! i checked my october 2008 posts - and didn't see any snow mentioned anywhere ... so the 10 inches or so that fell last night was a BIG surprise ... just a lesson in being thankful in and for all things ... but snow? ! ! ! ! !

Happy Thanksgiving to all my blog buds!

dry and weary land

"Come, come," He calls you,
"O soul oppressed and weary,
Come to the shadows of My desert rest;
Come walk with Me far from life's noisy discords,
And peace will breathe like music in your breast."

When God places a burden upon you,
He places His arms underneath you.
