Update For You- Newness of Life

Newness of Life.
Yes, that is what Christ gives us.....

We muddle along, doing the best we can.

We wait, try to rest, call upon His name....
each day may seem the same as the day before, for awhile.


Sometimes He sends someone to help point the way,
or to say an extra prayer for us.....
He is so good that way.

Friends prayers, encouragement and support, 
and most of all quiet time with God,
have brought back my smiles.



I am hopeful.
I believe God has a plan for me.
I know He is with me...
And, as one sweet friend said it, 
"God has a plan for me, and I am smack dab in the middle of it".

Have you ever thought about that?
No matter where we are, 
we are "smack dab" in the middle of God's plan.

I find great comfort in that,
knowing God will use whatever happens in my life,
even lostness, loneliness, and grief, to
make me into who He wants me to be.

Be blessed sweet friends, and know you are not alone.
He is right there with you.

Taking one step at a time.

Beautiful word... beautiful pictures. Reminds me of Jeremiah 29:11 "I know the plans I have for you says the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Bless you!

Hi Barb, it is lovely to have you visit. I'm happy that you like my collage and my top hat. That top hat was a paper project that I thought about for a long while before deciding how I was going to create it. That is the fun of trying something new . . . for me the first time I try something new, is also the most exciting. New techniques may become more honed with time, but the first time is always the most adventurous :) Thank you again for visiting and do come again :)
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
