Joy Dare September into week 4

The past week was one I would not choose to re-live.
 I was "hanging on by a string" as Ann Voskamp would say...
Sometimes I think too deeply of what others say and it is not good for me. 
I am grateful to have a loving family and precious friends who help me through when things get tough.
 But most of all I am thankful for God's grace which is new every morning and His unconditional love.

  1. Been thinking of you this week. Wondering how you were taking things and heard from our friend that I was on the right track! Know that you are an awesome, amazing mom and friend (and everything else!) Never doubt that! Love you lots my friend :o)

    1. Ah Shirls thanks my friend. Love and miss you loads xxxx

  2. I have copied below what was in my Inbox today. It sure helped me. Hope it blesses you too. Linking in from A Holy Experience.

    "Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children."

    Sometimes we think to much.
    God does not require intelligence or ignorance.
    It's called innocence.
    Children believe what they are told.
    God is all knowing!
    He doesn't need our help.
    He desires our hearts.

    It was the "Sometimes we think to much." that landed in my heart. We overthink everything... don't we? At least I do.

    Praying for a peaceful day for you and your family. But most of all praying for God's powerful presence in your lives.
    Many blessings,

    1. Thank you Jan for your prayers. How wonderful to receive encouragement from you. I am so guilty of over thinking! Blessings to you too, Wendy
