"This is the Lord's message to us: 'Just stay near Me -- as close as you can. Don't run yourself ragged looking for help and hope. Don't keep consulting this person, that person, and the other person. Talk to Me every time you think of it. Read portions of My Word and then chew and chew and chew on them. Stay in My Truth. Crowd your way into My presence. Drink from My stream. Stay, stay, stay. And rest in My faithful love and care.' Instead of allowing ourselves to be troubled, worried or led astray by our circumstances, David urges us to feed, like a humble sheep, on the faithfulness of God -- to graze safely in God's good pasture."
~Ron Mehl (What God Whispers in the Night, p. 70)
I am reading the book I linked to, above, by Ron Mehl. It is a wonderful book and when I read the paragraph I quoted above...I felt such a sweet peace and knew I wanted to share it. :)
My mom is doing well and resting a lot. Thank you for all your loving notes and prayers! I truly appreciate them! God is so good! :)
The summer days are full. I am thankful to say, though, that the past few days, the temperatures have been especially nice...in the 70's and 80's. I love comfortable days like these! We will be starting our school days soon. I am excited for what the new schooling year holds...the learning and growing that occurs is such a beautiful thing to watch happen! The bright eyes and excited faces of my children, when they learn or understand something new, is a joy to behold.
Thank you for stopping by. I pray that what I shared, from Ron Mehl's book, blesses you like it did me. And I have a link to it from Amazon if you are interested in purchasing the book for yourself! :) May your day be full of joyful surprises and love!
and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
