Dear God, show us the road
that you have chosen for us,
and give us the courage
to walk down it... Amen

Unexpected gifts...

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase
To added affliction He addeth His mercy
To multiplied trials, his multiplied peace

When we have exhausted our store of endurance
and our strength has failed e'er the day is half done
when we reach the end of our hoarded resources
the Father's full giving is only begun

His love has no limit. His grace has no measure
His power has no boundary known unto man
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.
-Annie Johnson Flint

Today, I am most grateful for:
-His promise
-snuggles with Mark
-Cody's understanding of God commissioning him to do something
-Jesse Ray's butterfly kisses
-the little book of promises I received in the mail yesterday (thank you Evalene)
-going to Walmart and being able to go in and out in less than 30 minutes;)
-the prayer of Jabez

My favorite all time song! For me, the words you posted have been a crutch for me to lean on all my life -- I can hardly remember NOT knowing them. It was so good to come here today and be reminded that He gives us His grace in everything that comes our way!

Thanks so much for your words today on my blog. You are such an encouragement to me!
