A Beautiful Earth....


Hello Hello! How are you! I hope each and everyone of you are enjoying a fabulous week! Well I had not planned on this little post and will be posting again on early next week, but I had to take a moment to say hello and wish each of you a happy Earth Day. Our beautiful earth offers up so much in beauty for each of us to enjoy such as these beautiful and fragrant oriental lilies. Oh my not only are they beautiful their fragrance is absolutely amazing....just lovely! I have spent the last couple of days just knitting small leaves. I miss my knitting so much and a big project I just do not want to tackle right now so the little leaves were a perfect way to use my needles and not be overwhelmed.

Guess what! I am feeling wonderful my friends! Oh yes I still use my walker, have some leg swelling and must be very careful with my new jaw. But as my Sweet Dear Mother would often say " I may not be where I want to be right now but oh thank God I am not where I use to be." :o) You know I had someone ask me not long ago just how could I have gone through the last two years of my life and still be standing. But even when it hurts so deeply and the end seems a far off I have learned and are learning to stand firmly on God's word. And it is so good to know that in those valley times those times of great challenge my Saviour Christ Jesus is standing near by my side every step of the way. He is so wonderful, magnificent, good and kind! :o) So in those tough times of life know that Jesus cares He really does! :o)

You all enjoy your day. As I said in the beginning I had not plan for a post today but I am happy that I did! I truly enjoyed myself! I will be back early next week and I can hardly wait! Enjoy the rest of your week!


Let every part of life
your person, your style, your direction,
your flavor-be in Him.

Hi Beverly...so happy to have you stop by today. I think of you often and I'm keeping you close in prayer.

Earth Day is a good time to remember the wonderful gift the Lord gives us in the beauty of the outdoors. I know that's what I was thinking about last week.

Haven't been blogging too much recently...my mom and the rest of the gang keep me hoppin'...but I am working on a few little projects and trying to make the most of every day.

Keep on keepin' on Beverly...

Love,
Amy
