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

I will make a way...

Though it seems I am trapped in the Winter of life...God is far greater than I can imagine...I can't understand His ways. In sorrow and loss, as well as in joy, I always have a choice to make. I can choose to believe that He is good, and in control, and to trust Him...or I can try to manipulate every outcome and rigidly try to control my own life.

Quotes taken from Denise Jackson in her book to find "Self" and Love in only Him...

It's All About Him

I chose Hope
Hope for a better day...

Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. -Isaiah 43: 16, 18 - 19

Oh Sherry - thank you.
He is good.
He is in control.
We do trust Him.
If I know anything in this world - it's that things happen for a reason. I try so hard, not to question the reason. Many times I falter ----- only to get back up and TRY again.
Most of all ----- we have HOPE. HOPE is where it's at - Baby.
Today I watched the spirit of a woman in Haiti - named Jeanette. The spirit of that woman!!!!! She never faltered. She knew God would save her. She came out of the rubble, singing. If THAT does not give us HOPE and make us all quit whining - I don't know what will. I bawled thru the story, shook myself off and got back to the business of making this a better day.
These people, of Haiti, have such trust and FAITH in God. Gosh, who are we to wimper? Who are we to complain? Does it take an EARTHQUAKE for us to see the light? Apparently.
The little spirits of the children and the people as a whole --- give me reason to TRY HARDER!
