If I tried to count my blessings…I would lose count. So would this little girl.
A new graduate of kindergarten, with her brown eyes twinkling, her life ready to be lived and enjoyed, she is glowing.
From the prayers that went up to have her, to the prayers that go up continually—she is blessed. Chosen by the Father above for our family—she is loved!
A short while back, the LORD blessed this little miracle child with a miracle of her very own. A mommy. Not to replace the precious mommy who joined the LORD in heaven, but one sent by the Master Himself to come along and complete the work already in progress!
Stacy joined our family this year with great excitement and much anticipation of being a mommy and wife to a special pair in our family. Mark and Victoria. Under the loving and nurturing hand and heart of Stacy, Victoria is blossoming into a beautiful young lady! She smiled so much the day she graduated from kindergarten, I know her little face must have hurt when she went to sleep! Much excitement! Great fun!
God is good. Have you noticed lately how good?
Praise Him for all blessings in your life!
Congratulations Miss Victoria! We love you dearly sweet girl!
The porch swing at my mother’s is a favorite place of reflecting. Yo-Yo, the spoiled cat, likes to attend his daily regimen of grooming while bathed in the light filtering through the screen.
There has been many pouring of heart and soul on this porch for more years than I can count. I have been prayed over and read to, prayed for in the quiet dawn, and as the hush of dusk fell on the grounds.
I have felt the power behind the prayers prayed from this porch. God heard. AND He answered. Today, I need to sit on that porch of prayer and peace. Today, I need to feel the strength that comes from the prayer—the power and anointing is ours when He reaches down, through and into our lives and meets the need.
The need? I can’t put a name to it. Have you ever been in that place? Where the prayers you pray seem to stop at the ceiling? The urgent need of your life remains nameless to you, all the while He knows the need of your heart. I’ve been there more than once. I sit in that place today. Even though I can’t get to that porch today, I can get to the cross. Unload and unwind. Allow the fingers of the Holy Spirit to kneed away the frustrations of life and apply the balm that soothes and strengthens.
Strength is gathered. Soldier boots are pulled on and laces tightened. With the renewed strength for the journey, we carry on in a run now—headed for the finish line. Doing all we can for the cause of Jesus Christ!
You save the humble,
but your eyes are on the haughty to bring them low.
29 You are my lamp, O LORD;
the LORD turns my darkness into light.
30 With your help I can advance against a troop;
with my God I can scale a wall. 2 Samuel 22:28-30 NIV
Keep praying and believing sisters!
