Sunday Showers....

Another rainy Sunday morning.... It is something so comfortable about hearing the pitter-patter of rain drops in the stillness of night that brings such wonderful sleep. A restful sleep one of life's little pleasures!

Many of you know my Mother is ill... she is now out of the hospital and home again and I must say being back home has seem to put a spark in her eye and a lift in her spirit! You know, I have been so greatly reminded in the last year just how easy it is to trust God when life poses no real challenge. But I am learning that the real test of my faith is trusting God fully in those times when there seems to be no readily available answers to my long list of questions about my situation, about my pain, about my fears, about my worries. Knowing that He loves us so much and His eyes are never blurred when seeing our troubles, our pain is His concern...always remembering God loves me so much.

Well my new blog is open for the looking and commenting too!! :o) At The Twisted Loop we will do nothing but talk designing and crafting and Etsy Shop talk fun that will be! Right now there is a lot of knitting going on over there! Please visit and tell me what you think! I have put a link on the right, just click and enjoy! All of you have a joyous week and make time to do what you love most!

It is God who arms me with
strength, and makes
my way perfect.

Psalm 18:32

I will continue to pray for your Mother and for you my dear friend. I did not get to attend Church this Morning due to hurting my back yesterday. Visiting you and reading your post helped to make up for the service I missed...Blessings

Hi Beverly

I've been thinking about your Mom and wondering how she was doing. I hope that she is soon feeling better.

What a beautiful photograph of those lovely tulips. You're having rain and we're having yet more snow!

Hi Beverly, Glad your Mom is feeling better. I'm sure she's glad to be home, I know I would be. I love going to sleep to the sound of rain (as long as it's just rain and no storms). I'll have to go and check out your other blog now.

Have a wonderful week!

I'm SO glad to hear that your Mother is home and it has lifted her spirits. I know that our faith is tested in many ways, but God is ever faithful to us-isn't that amazing!

I'm tagging you-please visit me for details.

This photo is so gorgeous. Of course, being north of you, I experienced that same rain. However, it wasn't quite as beautiful as what you captured!

I am so glad to hear about your new blog! That should be an interesting forum!

And, give a tender hug to your Mother! I am so pleased to see the results of answered prayer!

We have been enduring our own challenges as Barry is looking for another job after the business he worked for was sold. This scripture not only reminds me of God's power to rescue, but of the rescuing prayers of the saints...

2 Corinthians 1:9-11 (The Message)

8-11 We don't want you in the dark, friends, about how hard it was when all this came down on us in Asia province. It was so bad we didn't think we were going to make it. We felt like we'd been sent to death row, that it was all over for us. As it turned out, it was the best thing that could have happened. Instead of trusting in our own strength or wits to get out of it, we were forced to trust God totally—not a bad idea since he's the God who raises the dead! And he did it, rescued us from certain doom. And he'll do it again, rescuing us as many times as we need rescuing. You and your prayers are part of the rescue operation—I don't want you in the dark about that either. I can see your faces even now, lifted in praise for God's deliverance of us, a rescue in which your prayers played such a crucial part.

Humongous Hugs,

I am glad to hear that your mother is feeling better and is home and that you again can see some sparkle in her eyes. I hope that you also take very good care of yourself. Be hopefull!

Greetings from Aina

Beautiful picture. Sorry to say we're nowhere near that here with several inches of snow still on the ground.

Good news that your mom is home.

I love your little knitted wristlets in your previous post too.

Have a great week!
