If Life is Good

I woke up to this sweet comment on Facebook from my friend Diana over at My Walk of Faith...she said, "I miss you blogging... I hope it's because life is so good you just don't have a moment to spare. :)"

Sweet comment? Yes! But it also made me think, ouch!! The purpose of this blog was to keep a record of my journey with the Lord. To bring Him glory for what HE is doing through and with my life. If my life is good it is only because of Him. If you've read my past few posts you know that I am a bit stalled in my relationship with God. I know it's normal and it will pass but I still don't like it.

However, life really is pretty good and I think I should fill you in on a few things.

I went to Florida at the beginning of the month. I GOT ON A PLANE!! My symptoms were pretty much non-existent and I had a fabulous trip. Spent some quality time with the man that God brought into my life and enjoyed every second of it. My heart was filled with gratitude for a God who loves me enough that He cared about every little detail of that trip.

Guess who stayed with David while I was gone? HIS DAD!! Yep. Don came and stayed at the house with David and they had a great time. (Ellie was out of town with her cousin) Don and David have continued getting together and God is slowly building a relationship between them. There is a part of me that is having a hard time with it but I know it's what we all have prayed for. Beauty from ashes!

When I opened up my blog this morning I went to the sidebar to see what today's verse is and this is what I found: "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the Lord who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:10

God has promised His love will never be shaken. It can't be changed. No matter what I do, His love does not change! He will never remove His peace from my life. It is always there. I need to cling to it!! He is at work in my family. I hope you all know that He is also at work in your own lives. He loves you. The God of the universe loves YOU.

Thanks for continuing to come along on this wild ride with me,

So glad to hear from you on THE PERCH.

I haven't been blogging either. I had surgery several weeks ago and just trying to work, do physical therapy and go to church is enough.

But, you are right. Our blogs are to allow people to look into our journey with God.

Thanks for the reminder. So glad things are going well.

A trip without symptoms... did I hear you right? That alone is amazing.

I guess it is good that David got to bond with his Dad too.

I hope you have a great day today... and everyday.

He is working! I have had to learn to pause and look around and see what He is doing in my life and especially in the lives of those I love!

Blogging about the struggle of walking with the Lord could be helpful to some,'s not always an easy path to travel..or to stay on...but like you said, God is ALWAYS good and ALWAYS there...ready when we are to get back on track. Love to you...xox

Many of the most amazing things happen just out of view: babies are conceived and "hidden" for a period of 9 months ... seeds are planted and remain seemingly lifeless in the soil until some pre-appointed time ... the sun dips below the horrizon to allow night to have center stage.

There's no doubt in my mind that LOTS of things are going on in your life, and that the Lord's front-and-center. You wait; you'll see!

So glad you're engaging in life. That's good!

Good for you on going to Florida and enjoying yourself! God must have lead you on this sweet trip for His glory.
Please pray when you think of it for my husband Rod, he has had liver disease for over 20 yrs,Mayo clinic put him on "The transplant List" so we are waiting for one to be available. God has openned our eyes and shown us just How in control He is lately. He already shrunk the cancer growing in the liver before they gave him a chemo treatment...provided us many prayer warriors to encourage and speak the word as these days fly by...Here is our link if you want to follow type in Rodney Dyson.
God is giving you and me a lighter load so we are encouraged by Him.
friends in Jesus forever.
