Buzzing Around?

Do you ever feel like you are just buzzing around with no where to land?

God has a perfect plan for each of us. If your world has served up a tray of unknowns; be certain there is a perfect plan designed by a perfect God! Keep your eyes on God and keep buzzing in His direction. He will use each detail in your life for His good will and purpose.

"And we know that God causes everything to work together[a] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." Romans 8:28 NLT

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Your Darkest Hour

In your darkest hour, HE is with you!

"I will lead blind Israel down a new path,
      guiding them along an unfamiliar way.
   I will brighten the darkness before them
      and smooth out the road ahead of them.
   Yes, I will indeed do these things;
      I will not forsake them." Isaiah 42:16 NLT

Just like Israel, GOD will lead us out of darkness. He will light our path. Hang on to the One who loves you most. Cling tightly to the glimmer of light and crawl, if you must into it.

Seeking HIM,


~THANK YOU for your prayers for our son, Wil. He is recovering well. He still has some pain, but is hoping to progress to get back to normal soon.

God Paints a Beautiful Picture

God paints a beautiful picture each and every day. Sometimes, it is hard to see HIS hand at work because our hearts are full of pain. Yesterday, Doug and I were able to watch GOD paint a beautiful picture in the hearts of a beautiful family. Their sacrifice many years ago, became our blessing!

"For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
Our hearts are full of joy and thankfulness. GOD faithfully calmed our fears and revealed HIMSELF in a powerful way to everyone present. As GOD allows I will share more of our blessing and the sacrifice of this family. For now, know if you are facing a difficult choice:

~HE is faithful!
~HE will see you through to the end!
~HE will bless your obedience and faithfulness!
~HE will answer your prayers!

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Trusting GOD With The Unknown

In the quietness of each day, I contemplate the path GOD has for me. I look forward to the journey ahead, yet there are times when I become nervous, especially when it relates to my children and grandchildren. We face new adventures with our children almost daily. The youngest is 18 and the oldest will be 29, soon. There are five, total. Over the last few weeks, I have realized my nervousness could be measured in a lack of trust in what lies ahead. I "say" I fully trust GOD with each of them, yet I am nervous!

"Answer this question: Does the God who lavishly provides you with his own presence, his Holy Spirit, working things in your lives you could never do for yourselves, does he do these things because of your strenuous moral striving or because you trust him to do them in you? Don't these things happen among you just as they happened with Abraham? He believed God, and that act of belief was turned into a life that was right with God." Galatians 3:5 The Message

Oh my, after reading this verse over and over a few times I find myself full of both conviction and hope. I am reminded of something my husband often tells me, "there is nothing you can do to fix this situation. Some things only GOD can fix." Wise man, listening to an even wiser GOD.

Join me as I trust GOD with each new adventure in the lives of our children and grandchildren. HE is faithful. HE will continue to prepare the way before each of them.

Trusting GOD with the unknown,

Brokenness and Beauty

In the brokenness of our lives there is beauty. It is our choice when we have a broken heart as to how it is filled. We can choose to cling to the pain or release it and allow GOD to fill the damaged crevice. What will it be for you?

The broken places in my heart have been filled with GOD's presence, revealing HIS beauty. I look back at some of the most painful times in my life and realize my surrender to HIS will is the reason I survived. I am a survivor. There is beauty beneath the pain of the past!

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,
