A quick hello and a little praying for you…

Hi friends~  I hope you are off to a great start on your week!  We are thrilled to be in our last week of “school and waking up extra early” in the mornings!  🙂

I’m pondering a few things I’m dying to share with you… because I know that I’m not the only one seeking these answers.  I’m still processing, praying, and seeking…but in the mean time, I wanted to share this: If you need a litttle encouragement for your day, maybe this will be a blessing boost and reminder to you… It was to me this morning.  What are You doing, Lord? (Especially the Oswald Chambers words at the end…)

(Don’t ya just love it when your own blog gives you either a sweet reminder or a swift kick in the pants???)

Have a great day, everyone… I’m praying for every soul whose eyes read this page!  May the Lord strengthen you and remind you of how very much He loves you and of how very present He is – even if you can’t seem to see Him right now. 

“I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!
If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

I could ask the darkness to hide me

and the light around me to become night—

but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.

To you the night shines as bright as day.

Darkness and light are the same to you.”
Psalm 139: 7-12, NLT
With prayer for you and praise to the Lord for this Truth!
