Open my eyes, God. Help me to perceive what I have ignored, to uncover what I have forgotten, to find what I have been searching for. Remind me that I don't have to journey far to discover something new, for miracles surround me, blessings and holiness abound. Amen.

God Bless You...Sending lots of blessings, prayers & love ♥

God instructed Moses to pray a special prayer of blessing over the Israelites every day. It is an often quoted blessing. “The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace." Numbers 6:24-27

The Lord's heart is to bless you and watch over you in all your ways. Just like a mother hen broods over her chicks, our God watches over us with His mighty protective love. May each and every one of us be aware of His nearness today and His desire to bless us in all that we do

Heavenly Father, I release to you the burdens that I have been carrying, burdens that You never intended for me to carry. I cast all my cares upon You-all my worries, all my fears.
Father, calm my restless spirit, quiet my anxious heart, still my troubling thoughts with the assurance that You are in control. I let go of my grip upon the things I have been hanging onto, with opened hands I come to You.
I thank You for Your promise to sustain me, preserve me, and guard all that I have entrusted to Your keeping. Protect my heart and mind with Your peace, the peace that passes all understanding. Father, may Your will be done in my life, in Your time, and in Your way.

"That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day."  
2 Timothy 1:12

The first snow

Winter has been slow in coming this year; with the result that our surroundings have been brown, grey and dull instead of being blanketed in snow. Yesterday I woke up to snow on the ground and, as I stepped outside, was greeted with the sight of gently falling snow. It left a beautiful white blanket over my apartment complex. I love early mornings and undisturbed snow. By afternoon it had all melted, but I am still grateful for the peace and serenity that comes with a gentle snow.
