"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

What Have You Laid to Rest For Too Long?

Happy Fall Y'all 

(welcome to our front porch- I love that truck! )

I am not sure
 if many read blogs much any longer,
now with Instagram being the  
"go to" most often.  
(And I do love Instagram)
But I  truly have missed writing and promised myself 
this past weekend that I would write a blog post.  It's a way of jump starting myself
even if no one reads it! 
Keeping promises to yourself is kind of

 Since moving three years ago, I kind of dropped out of the writing world
because I needed the time to get our new home in order.  
Isn't it something how 
when we forget to be "intentional" 
about picking something back up, how it can easily become lost?
(whatever that something might be in your life) 

Life happens to all of us, 
and includes needed times of stepping back,
 resting, rearranging schedules, grief & losses, 
illness, celebrations, new homes, new babies etc.... etc....
I am so thankful, that God already knows what
 we will go through before it happens.
  He has had our path planned for us, from the beginning.
And it is always paved and ready waiting for us to travel upon again.
That is...once we remember it is
HE who is truly the one in control 
and not us ourselves!
We can sure get in the way sometimes!!

"He begins to unfold His dreams for us 
 and moves those dreams forward 
 as we settle into a rhythm of PRAYER." 
~Mary Beth Marr

How often do we go through a journey alone?  
When all along, GOD is wanting to help us through, if only
we will ask HIM.

 "The Lord your God is with you;
 his power gives you victory.
 The Lord will take delight in you, 
and in his love he will give you new life.
 He will sing and be joyful over you."
`Zephaniah 3:17

( one of my journal creations)

I remember when going through Beth Moore's Bible Study, The Quest, a few years ago
 and her saying something like this that I have paraphrased in my own words:

You know, I bet God loves it when we inquire and ask questions of Him 
and search HIS Word for HIS answers.  
I imagine HIM
C H E E R I N G for us 
as He jumps up from HIS royalty seat clapping HIS hands 
and giving high fives to all the angels when we search and find the answers in HIS WORD!  😃


So my friend, if you
have laid something away to rest
much longer than you planned, I hope
you will ask God to help you to find COURAGE to pick it up again
and let HIM cheer and sing over you with JOY. ♪ღ♪
