Resting In His Arms

























With each day, I am feeling a little better. I continue to rest in my Heavenly Father's arms soaking in HIS presence. Patience is "not" something I do well! I continue to learn to appreciate and value God's timing.


"...the joy of the Lord is my strength." Nehemiah 8:10

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Andrea

I am so glad you are feeling better, Andrea. Continuing in prayer.

And thank you for your gentle encouragement over at the Wellspring on my recent posts. It sounds like you know how hard it was...a like history gives you a better understanding. Thank you for your prayers. In great need of them regarding this one.

What a beautiful photo. I absolutely love the stark contrast of cardinals in the snow.
I'm so glad you're feeling better my friend. And resting in His arms is absolutely the BEST place to be.

Guess my last attempt to leave a comment with into cyberspace...
Glad you are feeling better. It is very difficult to be patient about feeling well. Just store up those creative juices for when you are back to full steam! Your picture is worth a thousand words--even in the seemingly barren and worst times of our lives --His love shines through! Blessings...Linda J

The flu is the worst -- I hope you and your husband continue to mend.

And thank you, Andrea, for all your lovely comments on my blog over the last few weeks.

It can take a while to get back to feeling well. Do what you have to do.
I also love your picture. The bird is beautiful.

I'm glad that you are starting to feel better :) It's hard waiting for our bodies to take the time to heal and get better...believe me, I can relate! So glad you are walking in the peace of God :)

Beautiful Bible text reminder and I love your photo with your dog..wish my family could have one of those. As of now we are apartment dwellers and pets are not allowed. After two years we will be back home, country living, and then we will have all the pets we can. God bless always and hear from you soon.
