The Path of The Lord

Well, I had some pictures to show you of the gorgeous new Vera Bradley Store in Troy but the pictures won't load. I won't bore you with the whole ~~~this is the reason that our computer was in being fixed because the UBV, UBA, what ever, thing didn't work~~~story.

Instead of fretting over such things I stepped away from the computer to get started watering my plants and swipe the feather duster over the spots left vacant by the draining plants while this old picture uploaded. God leads us and I give him the glory for occasionally letting me follow. Today I followed. While this picture was loading I plugged in the video that Angie made me for my birthday. Some of you have seen Angies video that she made for me on Mothers Day three years ago and know how cool they are. This new video is even more glorious. I pray for the knowledge to some how be able post it here to share it with you.

Many of you left comments when Aaron was sick with the passage from the Bible that says that if God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. Oh dear ones, I am hear to tell you that it is so true. There were times during the past few months that I hung onto that passage for all I was worth and today as most days give Him all the glory for being faithful to His Word. Our families, everything that we have, are gifts from God that we have to hold on to loosely. It is all so fleeting. He gives us fleeting glimpses of beauty, the beauty that is His and He shares with us. He shows us glimpses of pain and sadness that He shares with us. His pain that He must feel when He sees us suffer or head off down some dangerous path.

In these fast moving, internet connected times, where we have the potential to reach all the people of the earth and all the people of the earth have the potential to reach us, let us guard our hearts and homes for God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that he {even} gave up His only begotten {unique} Son, so that whoever believes in {trusts in, clings to, relies on} Him shall not perish {come to destruction, be lost} but have eternal {everlasting}life. Let us cling to his promise from the Holy Bible in John 3:16. Let us not be distracted by the times and remain diligent in our walk with the Lord.

  5. Sue: Thank you for visiting my blog. I can relate to your post about The Path of the Lord. So many times I have so much going on in my life that I don't listen for that still, small voice or delibertaely push it away...but He is faithful and never gives up on me. My God has been doing some extra-ordinary things in my life lately....I am not worthy but He thinks I am!

    I'm adding you to my favorite places to visit.

    XOXO
