THIS IS THE WAY WALK YE IN IT!!!….

 

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘this is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21
THIS IS THE WAY WALK YE IN IT….These are the words I was hearing as I faced some difficult days in the last few weeks. The days were so dark you could cut it with a knife.  My prayers were like hitting the ceiling and bouncing back, I cried out to God and I would hear crickets…silence!  I ask God, “where are You and what are You doing?”  At the end of myself and tired of my struggle I just stopped in my tracks, it was at that point I could hear those words in my heart…. 
My eyes were opened and I begin to hear as I heard Laura Story’s song, “Blessings”.  Have you heard it?  I first was made aware of it when a friend sent it to me but I didn’t listen to it.  I saw some of my friends had posted it on Facebook, too.   A few nights ago a wife of a pastor called, she had me on her mind, bless her heart she is so good at calling even as busy as she is and even doing some follow-up after her calls.  At this last call she pretty much ordered me to sit down and listen to it quietly and let it sink in.  I did and finally heard it with the words going into my soul.  I goggled Laura Story and read her story, it is powerful, you must read it sometime getting the story behind her song.  Also, I found out she is the Worship Leader in a church in Atlanta that my dentist attends.  As I listened it got me back into reality and I realized I had allowed my flesh to be in control of my life.  I guess Father has me in a school, again! I am being transparent and at the same time I know I am speaking to someone out there who can identify.  We all have burdens to bare they each are a different size and color but all the same when it comes to the bottom line.  Even knowing they are designed for our good, it still hurts.  I again think if this is not going away I will be determined to live above my circumstances and not under them. I am convinced Father is telling me these words, ”This is The Way and I am to Walk in it…right now…
As you listen to this song let the words speak to you….

THE GOOD TASTE OF A SUMMERTIME GARDEN…..

 

This morning I was thinking how I am enjoying the produce that is coming from the farmers surrounding us.  Had delicious cantaloupe with my breakfast this morning.  In a phone conversation with my brother this week he ask me if I had a breakfast like our mother would make for us kids?  I answered, “no” I had forgotten all about it.  We lived on a tight budget so she would make toast in the oven with butter sliced thin on the four corners and one in the middle put it under the broiler and it would come out toasted just right as she watched it closely. “You just can’t beat oven toast”, my husband says. Then a big bowl of sliced cold cantaloupe would be placed in the middle of the table.  We would help ourselves to that good taste combination and get our bellies full.  Well what do you think I had for breakfast this morning?

Still thinking about the wonderful gardens in our area and getting to attend our local farmers market this Saturday morning I happen to see a picture a friend of mine had put on facebook it was so pretty I copied it to put here for you to see.

I got to see her later in the day telling her I copied the picture for my blog and what do you know!  The veggies in her picture she had gathered were to assemble in a gift basket for me. Guess what we are having for dinner tonight?  Yes! Fresh from her garden, funny when I get a gift like this I look past the human hand that gave it to me and see it as a gift from Father.  That makes me think how glad I am she was sensitive to our needs letting Him use her hands to deliver it to us.  Got to cut this short and get in the kitchen…..
