Last week I knew I was going to see some long-time friends that I hadn’t seen in many years. I wanted to bring them something special that they would really appreciate. So, I asked my daughter if she would make some of her hand-lettering art pieces for me to give to them.

She used watercolor background on some,
and a little touch of gold shimmer on each of them…

I asked my friends beforehand what their favorite Scripture was
and also what color they liked…

She did such a beautiful job on each one, didn’t she?!
I found a special frame for each one and that made them even more beautiful.

If you could’ve seen their faces when they unwrapped them!  One of my friends, who recently lost every thing she owned in the Texas floods, had tears in her eyes.  She couldn’t speak for a few minutes, and just held the frame close against her.

My daughter wasn’t sure if her hand lettering pieces were good enough… I assured her they were. If you’d like to see more of her work, you can visit her on Instagram, at @analuisadesigns

Have a blessed weekend!

This whole Fall has been a season of Giving Thanks.

I have so much to be grateful for.

Twice this year I had to deal with some health issues.
They could’ve been very serious…
But I thank God for restoring me to good health
and I feel better than I have in years.

I’m also thankful that my family, my kids, grandkids, and extended family
are doing well.
I can’t put into words how wonderful it is when everyone is healthy.
After several years of different ones going to the hospital and experiencing
such serious problems… I cannot thank God enough for the blessing
of good health in our family.
It is a gift not to be taken for granted.

Every thing else is just an added bonus.

I thank Him many times every day.

I have much to be thankful for.

Have a blessed Sunday!

But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? …You of little faith! Do not worry then… for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”  Matthew 6:30-33

I took my blood pressure today in one of those machines they have set up at the pharmacy center in the nearby Walmart…

I’ve done this many times in different pharmacies, stores, etc…

My doctor wanted me to keep tabs on my blood pressure
and check it regularly.

unnamed

While the test is going on, there’s a video of a nice lady
telling you what to expect,
(“the cuff on your arm is going to tighten”)…
she’s very polite and nice.

I sat there taking the test today
(repeating to myself, “Relaaax, R-E-S-T, Relaaax…”)
and trying to think of sweet, peaceful thoughts
(so my blood pressure will be lower —
I wonder if that really works??)

As I felt the cuff tightening considerably on my arm,
I actually listened to what the nice lady
was saying in the video…
It went something like this, “If the pressure is too much,
just hit the stop button and the test will stop immediately.”

She was, of course, referring to the tightening of the cuff
on the arm during the blood pressure test.

But in my profoundly thoughtful mood,
I thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be nice if sometimes
we could do that in life?
When there’s a “test” going on and my “arm” is
getting too tight for comfort,
just hit the stop button and immediately the cuff
begins to deflate and my arm feels so much better.
Then I could go on my merry way and my arm
won’t hurt anymore.

There is, of course, no such “stop button”.

but I looked up some words that help me…

 

“Truly, my soul waits upon God;
from Him comes my salvation.
He only is my Rock and my Salvation,
He is my defense;
I shall not be greatly moved.
My soul, wait thou only upon God
for my expectation is from Him
In God is my salvation and my glory:
the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
Trust in him at all times; ye people,
pour out your heart before him:
God is a refuge for us.”  Psalm 62:1,2,7,8

July 2013 406

I pray you’re doing great.
But just in case you’re feeling overwhelmed,
I pray those words will encourage your heart
and bring you joy.

I’ve been sick for over a week and haven’t been able to do much, but…

I can not let today go by without posting.

It is the reason why there exists hope
The reason why we can go on in the midst of trials,
grief, hard times.

He lives.

The angel said to the women,
“Do not be afraid;
for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.
He is not here,
for He has risen,
just as He said.
Come, see the place where He was lying. ”
Matt. 28:5-7

 

 

I don’t know if you’ve seen this before,
but it’s one of my favorites from way back.
If you haven’t seen it,
you’re in for a treat.

A blessed Easter to you all,

Daisy
