I just wanted to take a break from all the hustle and bustle of my life and say that I spent some time today just thinking about the billion and one things that I have to be thankful for. But not just a sense of thankfulness... but a sincere belief in my Lord and Saviour, that everything good in my heart and life comes directly from His hand. Today, front and center are my husband and son.... and then my earthly "heavenly" father.. Dad! I have been truly blessed by each of these men in my life, each in their own unique fashion, designed solely by my heavenly Father to each have their own specific impact on my life and all coming together so perfectly, like a beautiful puzzle, with all the pieces in tact.
It totally amazes me when I just sit and think... and listen for that still small voice. The one that speaks and nails me right in the heart. My verse, when I was fighting my breast cancer, was "Be still... and know that I am God". But the part that was my favorite, and I used to just hug my pillow at night and whisper over and over again... was "Be still... and know..." Whatever I was going through at the time, sickness, sadness, fear, hopelessness, uncertainty... was this overwhelming feeling of "Be still... and know..." that I will take care of you, I will sustain you, I will hold you up when you feel like falling down, I will hug you, I will love you, I will hold your head when you are too weary from life to hold it up. All of these things from such a simple verse. "Be still... and know... that I AM God." I love and cherish these simple words.
I praise the Lord for His grace and mercy... that He shows me every day. I am secure in whatever I set out to do... that His will for my life is to see good... not harm, come my way.
I have met some truly amazing women on this blog. I have been humbled by their spirit. I have been inspired by their talent and creativity. I have been uplifted by their encouragement.
Might this be a testimony for those of you in blogland that long for something that you just can't put your finger on. It is the peace and love and forgiveness of the Heavenly Father... and the love of Godly women in your life that are for you, whatever you need them to be. I am truly blessed and humbled and blown completely away by such revelations today. I always used to say that God saved creating the woman, Eve, for Adam, until the end... because He saved the Best for Last! God knew just what He was doing. We were created special, specific, and for a very sacred purpose that no man or beast could fulfill. Can I get an Amen Sista!?!?!?! :)
Thank you, my sweet blogfriends, for your wit, wisdom, and warmth towards me. I cherish you all, ladies. Hats off to you!!!
