Always Loved

I was thinking today that it has been awhile since I posted here and I have been so busy. Today was a day of reflection on so many things and I wanted to share with you a devotional I have read from Roy Lessin's devotional book called "Always Loved." It touched my heart and reminded me that the Lord is  always working in my life and His plans are perfect.

There is never a time
when you are not in His thoughts,
never a time when He turns away
from any need you face.

There is never a time
when you are not in His heart,
never a time without love,
never a time when you are not blessed
with good things from above!

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake,I am still with thee. Psalms 139:17-18
I would like to share some pictures from last July from a trip out.They are of Bury St Edmunds where I am originally from.These are of a place called The Abbey Gardens which is built on the site of a great Benedictine abbey at the centre of historical Bury St Edmunds. The park has stunning floral displays throughout the park.

  13. Linda,
    Thank you so much for visiting and following A Softer Voice. I visited your beautiful country in 1995 and would love to go back. Your pictures offer wonderful memories. I enjoy your posts very much and look forward to spending more time at Days Touched by Grace. Proverbs3:5,6 is my life verse. God is faithful and we CAN trust His direction.
    God Bless
