I am looking so forward to Thursday as my daughter is going to take me out for the day to celebrate my birthday. I will be sure to take my camera with me to capture all our special moments. I love days spent with family and friends.
For me another morning of reflection and I have been sitting here thinking. I have been remembering the journey the Lord has been taking me on. A journey where I have had nowhere to go except to Him. He has been the one who has given me the strength for my climb! You see I have learnt that these trials have been a test of my faith and character.He has been the one with me through some dark valleys and waiting for me when I reached that mountain top!
Often we encounter circumstances in our lives that are places of beauty and joy and how we love these places don't we? We can quickly become complacent. And then we come to places of pain hurt and despair! My journey last year was that one of despair,tears,hurt and pain. Through all of this the Lord was teaching me that He was using me and my pain for good. Of course it has been difficult and I have resisted and tried to go my way! I have learnt that the Lord is in control always. I have so much to share and I look forward to opening my heart with you as I journal here.
A bible verse I am reminded of is:
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,to them that are called according to His purpose."
I would like to share another photo of my daughter Natalie and her partner James taken in Georgia.This was taken two years ago when we visited my sister.
