" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

I had THE best day......

.......and yet, it was the simplest of days !  Isn't that wonderful?

I'm not rich in material things, but I'm oh so rich in God's love ! 

I live in an old, rented house trailer.........so happy to have a home..........and today we put up plastic to keep the rain off of the back porch.  Hung the bicycles where they'll stay dry, since I patched the roof this week with roofing tar.  Replaced the broken board in the porch, enjoyed laughs with family, talked for an hour on the phone with my daughter ........HOORAY.......SHE'S THROUGH WORKING .........and then visited another hour with galfriend, Wanda, over the phone. 

I am blessed and highly favored..........and so are YOU !
And, by the way.........did you ever see a caterpillar that looked like this?
He appeared on my porch today, and was so peculiar looking, AND SMELLING, I wish that I could have gotten a better photo. 
His eyes looked painted on.......in fact, he looks like something from the mind of Jim Henson and the muppets.  He's in Heaven now, right.......maybe he's helping in the design department.

  1. Oh, can I empathize. I've been through some really hard times, but feel so blessed to have learned that there are so many things that spark gratitude!

  2. When upon life's billows you are tempest tost,
    When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost, Count your many blessings name them one by one,
    And it will surprise you what the LORD has done!
    I'm singing for you, and with you, my dear Dolly!

  4. I feel a sort of sorriness for the people who aren't able to stretch themselves, be content with what they have, and reach deep down inside for strength. It is during these times we grow-in strength, mercy, grace and closer to Him. It is an honor!

    Cute bug! He looks like something from Ranger Rick!

    Enjoy today and watch out! Just when we're feeling good, someone decides to try and wreck the party and tempt us to do something truly stupid! LOL
