It allows one to be still...
To reflect on what matters...
To study God's handiwork in nature...
Even with all of its challenges there are many wonderful blessings that come with winter's sojourn.
Hope all of you are enjoying this quiet time of the year.
"...in quietness and trust is your strength." Isaiah 30:15 b (NIV)
Have a blessed week.

When a winter storm is on its way here are some of my necessities.
Something hot to drink...
A warm fire...
and last but not least something good to read.
What are some of your necessities? Would love to know.
P.S. - To those of you who are enjoying summer weather and warm temps...could you send some my way.
Have a lovely week.

New dreams...new hopes...new challenges are all a part of what could be written on this page.
Last January my "perfect word" was hope...it became my focus and what I held onto during my Dad's illness and death. It continued to sustain me as we moved forward to meet the changes that come with losing someone dearly loved.
With the coming of 2018 I believe God's perfect word for me is "new". To explain how I know this is the word for me would be too lengthy to post - so to keep it simple I didn't choose this word it just kept showing up until I knew it was the one!
Funny how God has a wonderful way of letting us know certain things at certain times. Guess we just have to be listening!
What new things may be coming
is yet to be discovered. Looking forward to seeing what will be written on that blank page.
How about all of you ? Is there a "perfect word" you will share? Hope you will - I would so love hearing yours.
Before I sign off will leave you with a scripture that seemed to confirm my "perfect word" for 2018.
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." Isaiah 43:18-19.(NIV)

Soon it will be time to prepare for Christmas and a New Year. Seems like life happens way too fast.
Wouldn't it be nice if we could slow down and make the moments last?
I have just started reading a book "One Month to Live" by Kerry and Chris Shook.
It is based on the thought that if you only had one month to live what meaningful thing would you do each day. I think it will be a perfect read for this time of the year. Sometimes we get so caught up in the craziness of the holidays that we lose touch with why we are here and what is of importance.
Tomorrow another birthday will arrive. It sets one to do some pondering. While life has many ups and downs it seems vital to hold onto what matters. In the big scheme of things as brother James penned in the scriptures ..."what is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes." James 4:14b Upon that thought hoping everyone finds time to do what is meaningful this coming week.
