Time for Prayer

Good Morning everyone! It seems that more and more, conversations between friends is focusing on the state of our nation. Like myself there is so many that are without a job, trying to keep up with the bills, grocery's and the Gas prices!!! Yikes! For many that have the job, getting there is going to be difficult. What is there for us to do to help this settle down. We write letters and send messages to our government heads, but still don't see anything easing up. I heard a message this morning about riding the storm in the eye of the storm. In other words, If we don't let the concerns of where our world is, as we have seen it, and is changing right before our eyes, control us and feel defeated, buy leave it with our Lord, All will be good. If we aren't in the eye of the storm with God, where there is peace within, there can be destruction and hopelessness in everything of our life. Let's join together today to pray to God, that we know all is in his hands and we will be waiting for him in the eye of the storm, with continued prayer for our nations and loved ones and friends. That they too, can find the place of calmness in the eye. Full of belief and trust. I'm praying that all of you have a feeling of peace and love today with the Lord. Hugs, Brenda

Prayer's needed

Not only is my son and his wife are struggleing with other issues, now the 17 year old daughter who lives with her mom, is really trying to cause family problems. She's started at a new school last year and ever since it seems that she is greatly changing. Her mom doesn't want her to have anything to do with my son. He's been there from day one and has done everything possible to help her. He is rules to follow and she just doesn't like that. I know that this is a hard age, but we miss her and love her dearly. But that is not enough for her. My son acts like it will pass, yet he is hurting inside. So could you please pray that she knows she has a family that loves her and that the behavior he believes that a young lady should show is by far a long way from that. If only she could see that everything she is doing "Will" effect her future. I know from my own experience and just pray that the young ones could hear our experience and save them the trials that goes with them. If anyone has had this experience with a young family member, I would love to hear your advice. So far, we are continuely praying. Love to all of you, Brenda

Heart's Breaking

Have you ever experienced a time when your heart is just breaking for members of your family. And there's really nothing you can do!!! I love these family members soooo much, and just worry about what they are dealing with. I can't buy their happiness or place it on a platter and hand it to them. I can't make anyone change to help them out. My hands are tied!! I pray and pray for them, and just don't see anything changing for them. Do you ever just get frustrated that God can't move a little faster with the fix??? I know, all things are in his timing. But the hurt and saddness is just breaking my heart. I can cry barrel's of tears but it's not going to help. Just wanted to share this with you and ask for prayer that the ones I love will find some answers. I know God has his plans all set, and we just need to wait and believe and trust in him. I guess it's times like this that we grow with patience. If you are in a place that you don't know what is the right thing to do, I pray that you can find that peace of waiting until the Lord shows the way. Hope everyone is having a good day! Blessings, Brenda

Good afternoon!

Well, the weather report is for more snow tomorrow and the next day! Went to the store and I think I am now set for the rest of the month, LOL!

Our prayers are for everyone as this winter snow has been very hard on so many. Many have been left without power at times.

We have a blogger friend, 'Prairie Flower Farm' that could use our support. Her family is attemping to adopt an adorable little guy. Certainly seems like a plan of the Lord!! Anyway, many of us are trying to donate handmade items to help raise money for the family. If any of our followers would like to help out, please let us know and leave a comment. We will get details to you.

Isn't the family of God amazing? To work together and bring about His will is always a blessing to behold!!

Thank you to all our blogger friends who follow us. May God bless and enrich your day!

Blessings, Linda

Cold, Snowy Mornings!

Good Morning All!

Well, it has been a tough winter, more so for some ! I hope that everyone is hanging in there this morning!

I must admit, I am not a big fan of the cold, let alone snow. However, thankfully, my area is not as hard hit as some, including Brenda's!

I find myself with this recent snow storm, being more at peace with staying indoors, kinda stuck, LOL!

I have taken the time to rest, reflect and think on things..........things I need to get done, physically, mentally, spiritually. Maybe nature is the Lord's way of making us slow down? In this fast paced world of ours anymore, we are always sooo busy. Our minds never really rest with the ease of cell phones, computers, and every entertainment tech device at our fingertips!!

If you can, while about your busy day........take some moments to just get quiet before Him.

It is what He desires from us most.

Have a very blessed day!!

Blessings, Linda
