About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

There are No Orphans of God

Sunshine days are a joy and a blessing.
They give us precious memories for the season when only rain seems to fall.

As I sit here typing, the rain is falling steadily outside.
Storms are predicted for this afternoon, but for now I'll enjoy the comfort of being safe and dry in my cozy nest.

That's how life is sometimes.
We have to savor the sweetness and yet know that life has it's bitter moments, too.

We may not understand why bad things happen.
Why darkness can sometimes block out the light.

While attending the Teach them Diligently convention in Nashville last weekend, I heard more than one time that God loves our children more than we do.

Oh my, the tears did flow.

How is that even possible?

Look at the sacrifice God made for them- for all of us.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

My precious daughter's ballet performance beautifully illustrated God's love.
"There are no Orphans of God."

Each and every one of us is a child of God.
He will never leave you.

The days of sunshine are easy and carefree.
We may even think we can do it all on our own.
No worries, right?

And then comes the dark days, filled with rain. 
Fear and anxiety are a constant companion.

God is always there for you.
He loves us more than we can begin to comprehend.

Please know that God is in control, dear friends.
You are never alone.

There are no Orphans of God.:)

There are no orphans of God!
I tell my kids, "God loves you more than ANYTHING! There is nothing you can do that will make Him love you more than He does right now. There is nothing that you can do to make Him love you less than He does right now."
