|Beautiful hydrangeas. This photo is from my archives and was taken on a walk last summer.|
Just popping in to say "hello". I'm keeping very busy with this and that. I've been tidying in the garden, reading, crocheting, mending, cleaning, shopping, going to appointments and trying to catch up with a few friends.
Still lots to do but today as I went out I was feeling ever so content with the world and felt so happy.
When one feels happy they want to reach out and "touch someone".
The sun has been shining, the weather is warm and I am happy.
Don't misunderstand me. Not everything is right in my world right now. I have worries and concerns just like the next person. I also have many pressing cares and concerns that sometimes weigh on me. But now and then I stop and remind myself that God is in control. Yes, he is! Sometimes I want to control and manage every thing in my life. One thing I love to do is find solutions to any issues I face. But now and then, I hit a wall and a roadblock that I cannot surmount or find a way around. It is then that I am stopped in my tracks and realize that I do not have the ultimate control.
When troubles do come and seem overwhelming, I am reminded of the holy scriptures that tell us we should cast all our cares and burden on him for he cares for us. (1 Peter 5:7). There are some things that I go through or that that loved ones and friends face that are trying. Though I can try to help, it is God alone who knows all things. He knows why things happen and what the outcomes will be. I just need to trust that it is all GOOD what ever happens. God's Word says "All things work together for good to them that love God to them who are the called according to his purpose". (Romans 8:28) These verses help sustain me in a troubled time and help me press on in prayer and hope.
Whatever is going on in your world today, I pray that each of you have moments of joy and happiness. If you are dealing with overwhelming matters of life, try to give your cares and worries over to the great "I am" for he really cares for you.
If any of you have time, please also continue praying for my friend Jonah in Kenya who is waiting for the Lord's answers in his life. Also for my friend Elvis who hopes to finish university very soon (August).
We still need a bit of help to help for Elvis to finish strong, both for his living costs in July and August and for graduation fees. If you can help at all, please do let me know how and how you can send the support (pay pal, e-transfer, etc. If you can use Money Gram, Western Union, or World Remit, you can also send directly to Kenya and I can give you the details.

I am still on a bit of a blogging break but I do visit blogs and leave comments almost daily.
Have a wonderful day!
