My sweet pastor as he was praying this morning...

"Father, thank You for every answer to prayer that we have seen,
and thank You for every answer to prayer You haven't shown us."

Loving-kindness, mercy and grace are there, yes? Just so much more than I can imagine! The Father takes care to take care as He answers. And He meets our needs - every one ♥

hello, beautiful morning!

Sweetest sweetling related epiphany of the day so far...

It is possible that they will never realize all of the ways God uses them to bless this mommy heart of mine every day. Waking this morning, I realized yet another one. They greet the day so very joyfully --every single day! They have all done that since they were tiny. What a gift for them and for me!

As I opened my eyes this morning (no matter how I set my clock, I never can seem to be awake before they are - lol), I heard their gentle voices as they talked together. One of them would say something and they all burst into sweet giggles and then outright laughter, and it was just so beautiful. And it reminded me to take a moment to consider how I greet the day.

If I am not careful, all of the to-do lists, all of the busy-ness, all of the challenges begin to pour into my thoughts, and I forget the immeasurable blessing of simply, joyfully beginning a new day ♥

ready? go! (no need to "set")

"Readiness for God means that we are ready to do the tiniest little thing or the great big thing, it makes no difference. When any duty presents itself we hear God's voice as our Lord heard His Father's voice, and we are ready for it with all the alertness of our love for Him.

A ready person never needs to get ready."

From my reading yesterday, this gentle, gorgeous challenge still resonating ♥

indeed!

This all I seem to be able to sing and say...

"The power that raised Him from the grave
Now works in us to powerfully save.
He frees our hearts to live His grace;
Go tell of His goodness.
Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!"

Happy Most Important Day Of All Time ♥
