This a verse God gave me a year ago when my son was in a tragic auto accident. Garrett is back & Gods peace is still with me.
Psalm 9:1-2 & 10-11
I will praise thee, O Lord with my whole heart; I will show forth all the marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou Most High. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee for thou, Lord, has not forsaken them that seek thee. Sing praises to the Lord, which dwelleth in Zion; declare among the people his doings.
I know I have probably posted these verse before, but they give me peace & comfort. Today we had a scare when G-man was up walking, it is all good now, praise God!
Even though we’ve had good days & hard days I will praise God for what he has allowed me to experience & continue to experience.
God has a plan and is in control. He will order our steps; we just need to be willing to release ourselves to Him.

How do you affect other people? Are you kind or grumpy? Go back to the golden rule, treat others as you would like to be treated. When someone treats you with a grumpy attitude and do you get annoyed? If so, Step back and say,
“ Wait a minute! Have I been that way to someone else today.?”

I am so excited to say that I am in the process of working on Bible study number three. It is called, Gems of Grace; a Diamond in the Rough.
I want to give you a little piece of the study. I have thoroughly enjoying being able to write this and put questions out there for myself and you to ponder.
“I pose this question again. Are you a diamond in the rough? Are you a beautiful piece of God’s tapestry that He is waiting to reveal and use? Never doubt His love for you and what He can do through you. I have wasted so much of my life not having the confidence in God that I needed to see how and why He would choose me. I had no drawing power or beauty that would catch His attention! There is nothing in me. It is only His Son that has made me what I am today. I searched many years for peace and love in this world but never found it. Don’t get me wrong, I have people that love me, but God is the only one that makes me whole. The only searching I do now is searching His word to know what His will is for my life. I strive daily to be the Proverbs 31 or the Titus woman. Keep your faith, no matter how long it takes you to see God’s plan for your life.
Our happiness and joy come from God. We all have bad days & rough times, but how do we go through them. Are you an Eyore or a Pooh Bear? Look for the good in all things. I know I have said this before, but dwelling on the bad makes us bitter Christians. I’m not saying ignore the bad, but when we look for the good our joy will shine for others to see. When we have our face lifted up to God and we are looking for His strength then we will have the joy and happiness in our lives.
Sometimes in my life I feel very overwhelmed! I strive to do God’s will and bring glory to him, but most of the time I fail. When feeling overwhelmed and not knowing what direction to go in giving it to God completely is all I can do. He knows my thoughts, He knows my needs and He knows my wants. He keeps me in His arms and leads me in the way I should go.
