I hope this New Year finds you safe and well. I thank the Lord for bringing us safely through 2020 ~ a year unlike any other known to most of our generations. My heart goes out to the millions affected by the awful pandemic. Our thoughts and prayers are with them all.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to be regularly blogging. In life, we can often have wonderful hopes, plans and dreams of things we would like to pursue, but, as we’ve seen, unexpected events and circumstances may postpone things, and sometimes greatly.
BUT – by the grace of God, I’m thankful to be here at this start of 2021 sending you this little note and, by His grace also, hope to continue blogging on a more regular basis.
I pray your year will be blessed and that you will know total health, protection and the wonderful presence of God, our Heavenly Father.
Happy New Year dear friends!! As each New Year begins, while we look ahead to the new things God has in store, it’s good for us to look back with thankfulness. I would not be where I am today without Him. Through the years, the Lord has been my rock. Just wanted to share this poem of gratitude ~ one of those He blessed me to publish in my book, “Forever Grateful”. Thank You Lord!
Just Want to Say Thanks
I looked through the window of life each day
When the burdens were great and I hardly could pray
If someone would ask of me how I fared
With an answer, I’d smile, but I just couldn’t share
When the tears wouldn’t cease and I felt I had failed
You came through with peace, Your kindness prevailed
You lifted me, Lord, and helped me to stand
On a rock, and You sheltered me there with Your hand
Your Holy Spirit brought comfort and peace
In the midst of my sorrow and gave me relief
Of the pain and the anguish that weighed like a stone
You always were there, I was never alone
Oh Jesus I love You, I love You so much!
So precious to me is Your comforting touch
Your wonderful peace, You always impart
Just want to say “Thanks”, from a grateful heart –o0o–
I hope and pray that you are well. It’s been a VERY busy year for me, yet again! I just wanted to write this short post to let you know of some changes taking place with my blog site.
FIRSTLY though …. can I say a big “THANK YOU” for visiting my blog and for your support over the years. I pray that the blessings of the Lord will be showered upon you.
I truly thank God for His precious love which continues to amaze and fill me with awe. His love continues to inspire me with more poems (and reflections too) and with a love and desire to share them, in the hope they will be a blessing.
But with even the very best of intentions, our plans often don’t work out the way we want do they? Or WHEN we want them to happen. But that’s okay really – when we remember how God’s word says that “all things work together for good to them that love the Lord and them who are the called, according to his purpose”.
With all good intentions, I tried to have a separate blog to share inspirational reflections. As many of us can testify, the demands of life can be such that it’s difficult keeping up with things we plan. We just can’t have our hands in too many pies or be like an octopus! So…. with the thought in mind that I’d rather try to give more focused attention in few places than no attention in many, I intend to keep both my POETRY and REFLECTIONS here on this blog. Yes – by the grace of God, I’ll still be here!
However, this site name will soon be changing. I will update you shortly with the details. You’ll still be able to locate this site should you use the current URL also.
Have a wonderful and blessed day … and I’ll write back soon!
