Dearest Friends

He has done so much.
Did you have moments this past year when you felt the warmth of a caring look?
Or perhaps, you looked around at those you loved, and at that moment you knew that you were blessed.
Those moments were from Him.
Did you go through times of suffering, knowing that the Master Potter was molding and shaping you?
Did you feel pain, physically or emotionally?
Those times were from Him.
Did you enjoy the comfort of a warm, dry, home, while the weather raged outside?
That was from Him.
I love to feel my husband's big hand close around mine. In those moments I feel so safe. It is hard to express the wonder of knowing that our Father knows every hair on our heads. Safe? Yes indeed. Loved? Absolutely.
This Christmas season, may we all reflect on all He has done for us in the past year.
Have a blessed holiday!

Oh yes, my dear friend, He has done so much... so much. It is so very comforting to know He holds us in His arms, where we are very safe and warm, and so loved. Loved with everlasting love, as a matter of fact!
Thanks for this reminder today.

Thank you for these encouraging words that remind us that God is in control. Both good and bad are ordained from God and all according to His plans and purposes. Often I'm guilty of being discontent because my selfish heart is prone to wander in order to feed its own desires. However, the grass is seldom greener on the other side.

I hope your Christmas was very blessed and that your New Year brings much Joy.

A hearty AMEN!! Every single thing that we have experienced this past year has been a canvas on which the Lord has displayed his goodness and faithfulness. How thankful I am for the great salvation he has given me! And how I thank him for all the ways he meets my needs every day.

By the way, you asked Gabrielle (Ella) if I had a blog. I do not. I did, up until about 2 months ago. Then, I was led of the Lord to delete it, as I had been spending far too much time online. Blogging had become an addiction, and I needed to remove myself from the blog world for awhile. I do enjoy reading your blog though.

Thanks for being an encouragement to young ladies like my daughter.

Blessings,
Patti
