Refuge

DSC_0032 (Small)

There’s times in your life when things feel pretty bleak.

DSC_0014 (Small)

You feel like you just can’t take one more step.

You feel like there is no way out.

Your life feels like a whirling dervish ~ spinning out of control.

Why not look up...

Know that no matter how dark your darkest hour gets, there is always light shining on you.

For He will reach out to you and cup your hand in His. 

He is there, day or night. 

He will hear a whisper, a thought, a tearful plea.

Like any father, He only wants what is best for you. 

And He will do anything within His power to make your pain go away. 

Trust in Him. 

And His power. 

He is all powerful and can do all things.

Know this and believe…

And believe in a better day. 

DSC_0007 (Small)

It will come.

Like the full moon, which comes on a cycle, so shall your happiness. 

DSC_0006 (Small)

Ask for it.

Wait for it.

Embrace it.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Psalm 46:1

Until tomorrow ~ my Father by my side ~ God willing

So beautiful Sherry, and so true!

You captured so much in those eyes in that first picture:)

Once again, Sherry, I stayed up late to look a few blogs and started with yours... I'll end here too, to think about your beautiful words and pictures.

Thanks everyone...Anonymous (dear friend Ellen), Terri from OCF (those eyes belong to Mindy Jo, who was featured in the Boots Blog...with the elk...she has grown much in the last 2 years), and Mary Ann...what a wonderful sentiment ~ thank you so much for visiting.

Hi Sherry and thank you! So often we don't stop to think and to be grateful. That no matter how much we think we are carrying, we need not carry it alone.
