I am lonesome tonight . Yet I am so very blessed. Kelley and Tim are home in Lawton, Ok, with their three beautiful, healthy, God-loving children. They are going to bed, looking forward to surprises and laughter tomorrow morning. They have become such good parents, providing a loving home and guidance, encouragement and discipline, comfort and security. God lives in that home.
Hubby is asleep here, in the recliner, and I am up. We are well, we are warm, well fed, free, and saved by the grace of God. If I have tears in my eyes, it is only natural to miss my babies. But I am so very thankful to God for ALL of our blessings.
As I get ready to turn in for MY long winter's nap, I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a most blessed and aware Christmas day. Love the one(s) you're with...........(a leftover from my 70's upbringing).
" 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
