A day of reflecting...

Today I have awoken to a beautiful day! The sun is shining brightly and everywhere God's amazing work is to be seen. Flowers in my garden and trees starting to bud.I would like to share this photo with you. It was taken in Georgia in November while visiting my sister. I have chosen this one because I so love nature and flowers and trees.Even in November the beauty around me was amazing!

I am in a reflective mood and I have been thinking that God's Grace has been sufficient in so many ways. The past year has been valley laden and painful . This started with the sudden death of my aunt and God has taken me on a painful path since. I am so thankful for His grace and that He has brought me back to Him.I am so thankful for all the lessons I have learnt during this past year and I look forward to sharing them with you. God has been so good to me and I praise and thank Him! There is a lot of comfort in the thought that sorrow,grief and woe are sent into our lives sometimes to help our soul to grow.This was certainly the case with me! I am reminded that showers are needed for flowers to grow and some tears in our lives are necessary in our lives to promote our inner growth. I would like to share this bible verse with you:

"In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence:and his children shall have a place of refuge."  Proverbs 14:26

I would like to give a very special thank you to my treasured friend Judy who has walked my "bumpy" and twisty road with me for many years. Lifting me,supporting me and praying without ceasing. I am so thankful you are in my life and I am privileged to call you my friend! You are a sweet blessing!
