Blue skies and warm breezes....




Greetings to you on this first week of June! Its has been a very productive day thus far...some laundry has been done, kitchen stovetop cleaned, counter tops sprayed with Lavender cleaner, mopping and vacuumed attended to as well as dusting, I've settled into the afternoon quite nicely. Taking a break at the moment, and drinking some freshly made lemonade....water, ice, sliced lemons and a splash of Splenda in a colorful glass, it is quite refreshing and hits the spot! Right now the temperature gauge says 88 degrees on the patio. Dear Son #2 is mowing and edging the yards!! Love the smell of fresh cut grass! After awhile, I'll sit out on the patio and enjoy the solice with a good book and my lemonade, until Hubby gets in from work.


I find myself being very retrospective as of late, looking at how far the Lord has brought me since that day that I accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in my life. Years ago I considered myself a "professional worrier"!! I could worry for myself and for you too if needed. I read the bible regarding worry and anxiety, but still this things would haunt me. I would lay awake at night, unable to sleep due to fear and worry. It wasn't an overnight miracle that happened, but I do remember one day were I was praying and became very bold and almost shouted " I refuse to fear, for fear is the lack of faith, I have faith that My God will work things out on my behalf". Very simple, not super spiritual, but I knew at that moment something happened within me!! I felt such a release, a burdenlifted and shackles broken for i was bound and didn't know it! As soon as the burden lifted, peace came flooding in! The Peace of God surged within me and washed over me, and all I could do was weep and say "Thank You Lord" over and over again. Not to say that trials, tribulations and struggles do not happen anymore...but now I know that this too, shall pass and I hold onto the Word of God and the peace that comes with knowing Him. If you are facing a situation that is robbing you of your peace....cry out to your Savior, for He is your deliverer and will make a way when they seems to be no way! May the peace of God be upon and within you this day and everyday! Blessings to you....

I used to be a worrier too. It is much better when you give it to the Lord. :)

Thank you for that encouragment. Such a blessing to know that the Lord holds everything in His hands.
In HIS keeping,

yep worry, I sometimes do some of that too. I think the more you keep giving your thoughts to God the less of a burden it becomes, at least that's what I've found, but then again you have to be willing to let it go too.

You're right...worry does no one any good. Best to let our Heavenly Father handle our cares and concerns.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind! He is good, ALL the time!

His yoke is easy and His burden is light....We make it so hard, when indeed it's very easy
