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.

In the waiting room

yep. in the waiting room.
hard place to be.
things change....and we have to figure our whether to persevere through it, or put it aside.

My store, which I have had for almost 5 years, and have loved so much,
 has had some very abrupt changes.
Or, maybe it is me who has changed....or needs to change.....

So, I am waiting....energy sucked out of me....lots of tears,
 lots of trying to trust the One who loves me and has a plan for me.

and, in the midst of it all, I am right where I am supposed to be.

loving all of you...
