Life


















Life's messes sprinkle through all that we know...
However, we do not have to succumb to them...
Our minds eye may record happiness...
A wealth of spiritual and emotional growth, as well.

Farewell to bitterness and disbelief...
You were never my friend...

Strength, grace, and honor...
I have found.
Peace in my journey...
Glorious presence...
Most profound!

Soaking in HIS presence,

Andrea

Thanks Andrea! I really needed your words & your profile song. I've had a really tough few days, but I know time will make it better. Thanks again!

Wise, wonderful, succinct and instructive.

Blessings on your life today, Andrea. I appreciate you.

Thank for sharing this word today. Very encouraging. How are you doing friend? I have been off and on a lot with dads surgery and all. Great news he is doing well, home now and was told he can be off of his diabetes medication period. Praise God. So excited for that. I will be back on my normal visiting now since he is doing better and things are fine now.

How are the little ones doing? I hope all is going well. Always in my thoughts and prayers. Blessings to you Andrea.

Powerful. I love short and sweet posts like this. Encouraging and life giving.

"Farewell to bitterness and disbelief...
You were never my friend..." AMEN


Thanks for your faithful visits. I'm touched that you continue to bless me with words even when I am weak on returning the kindness. It's so hard to juggle friendships. I may blog about that soon. :)

Enjoy my time here when I do come.

Until then, God bless you and your family.

I haven't visited your blog in weeks. I've really missed it. My entire family has been passing around some crazy cold/sinus thing and it's kept me off the computer most of the time. I love the picture you put with this poem. It's beautiful.

God bless you Andrea .
