Encouragement for Today~In today's world of swirling circumstances, we need to be reminded of how much we are loved by God.


The Millinery Shop

The Millinery Shop

Although I never got to see it, my grandmother owned a millinery shop. Oh how I would have loved to seen all those hats and accessories!

Each one different than the other, no one just the same. Each one designed and made with love and devotion. I bet there was one that would even fit my very large head!

I guess that is like each one of us. Designed with love and devotion. Neither of us is the same. We all have different DNA, fingerprints, personality traits, hair color, height, weight… get the idea.

And each one of us is loved with a “reckless raging fury that they call the love of God.” (Rich Mullins’ The Love of God)

You may not feel that right now. That love may have seemed to alluded you, truly has not. It is there for your acceptance. For you to embrace. For you to wear….He loves you so much my friend.

Wear that hat, trust me, it fits perfectly.

Now, this was not one of those pictures that showed the beautiful landscape, but somehow this friend captured a couple of photos that showed each individual snowflake. Continue reading

But God

I have been alive long enough to see some things “come to pass” in my life. I witnessed some things this very weekend. Prayers answered from twenty plus years ago. Blanks filled in……gifts really.

I also had the privilege of making some new friends through the memorial service of a long time friend. As we shared stories about what the Father had done in our individual lives and then she said….”But God”….

I immediately related to those words. As I think back over my life, all the things that “came to pass” that I never expected, or that I was not sure how they truly would turn out….they did. God always seemed to have a plan, a purpose.

But God. Continue reading
