Showered in blessing...




We have had a wonderful sprinkling of rain in our area the past few days, no downpours at all, but we will take whatever bit comes our way!. It is going to do wonders for the seeds that have been planted. The Morning Glories are already poking thru the earth, and the Sweet William as well!


I have been working on my bedroom this week. Today I will taking down the blinds and soaking them in the bathtub, and washing the curtains, and finally cleaning the windows! Our closet rod broke over the weekend, and this is a perfect chance to purge yet again. I have purchased a few new things for the Spring and Summer season, and now I feel the need to purge and pass on the blessing to someone else.


I do need to run to Target for a few things as well, also workout this afternoon before coming home to fix dinner. Dinner tonight will be Mini-meatloaves, Garlic-cheese mashed Potatoes and a zucchini casserole. After a busy day like today, this is a snap to prepare!


The Lord has been showing me many things as of late. One is to press into Him more and more and not to be moved by what may be going on around me. To come and sit with Him, to have communion with Him, spend time with Him...and not be pressured for time, not to think about what needs to be done next. But to come and sit, be still and quiet, and then wait on Him, for He comes. I find that again, once I am obedient to His request, He increases the hours in my day! I am guilty of rushing around and trying to do this and that in my own strength, only to feel and know that it is an exercise in futility. The Lord will allow us to continue on and on at times, till we stand there and say "Ok Lord, I let go of this, and will not carry the burden, I release it to you and take your yoke, for it is light and easy to be borne." I cannot tell you how many times I've found myself in this place, and very recently at this here once again. I repented and released the tasks that I'm responsible for to Him and sat there and was filled with peace and a new hope. The lesson learned is a simple one: That in all things I seek and ask for His wisdom, provision and strength. That I lean not on my understanding and my limited knowledge, but acknowledge the Lord in ALL things (running my household in every facet), and He will direct my paths everyday. My Lord has once again showered down His wisdom, abundance, and strength to me, and I'm so very thankful that I am His and that He is mine.


May the Lord fill you day with His grace, love and provision!! Blessings to you and your house...



"I will bless my people and the places surrounding my hill. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing," says the Lord.
