God is using you

For His special purpose
To shine His light
To share His love
To shape His people

You are making a
difference in ways
you don't even realize -

The above message was a greeting card that I purchased for myself. Oftentimes, when I'm searching for a special card for a loved one or friend, there is a card that speaks to my spirit. I gravitated towards this message and I hung it over my desk to remind me that God using me and the only thing that I can do is surrender.

Are you shying away from something that God is asking of you?

GM Ms. Lady. It was delightful. After visiting w/family, I volunteered at a Men's Homeless Shelter. It was very rewarding and I met 3 men with Biblical names. Two named David and one named James. I told them that the Lord has plans for them. We smiled, laughed and talked about the Lord.

Hoping that you had a wonderful and grateful day with family!
Have a great day!

That's good to remember. Actually I am going to be taking a big step soon and work on recording some of my music...mostly poems and prayers I've set to music. I sincerely hope that God will bless others through the message of those songs. I don't know how He's going to do it, but I trust that He will.

Hope you're doing well. Sounds like you were a blessing and had a blessed Thanksgiving.

GM Toia, it was a blessed one. Way too much food for me. I past on all that "stuff."

Thank you for visiting and praying that the Lord is richly blessing your life.

PS. I'm so enjoying those 5 year olds ;-)

Hello Butterfly! Just stopping by to see how you are and say hello. You always say something I need to hear. I'm pretty sure that is something that will never change.

Good morning Blog family!

Tammy and Jen, so happy to hear from you and praying that the Lord is doing great things in your lives. I know that He has a big bright future planned for each one of His children, we just have to be patient and expect the unexpected. It's something we could never imagine in our own minds.

Love and continued peace!
