I've been loading pics for a new post, and it is frustrating at times, our internet is not that great and I find the pics were never posted with the slow internet. Oh well, such is life and maybe God has other plans this time?
I ran across this post of mine from '18...Oh my heart. It is entitled:
It's a recap of life on this green earth and my dad. I hope it will touch your heart. The Lord had put the post upon my heart that day in '18 as hubs and I were driving down the freeway home, and oh my, God's Spirit is oh so real if we can be still and listen and see.
When I read it and listened to the accompanying music by Ringo Starr, Photograph, and looked at the old photographs...My eyes teared. I knew this would be an immediate re-post and to load my pics for another day soon. God's timing is different than ours yes?
Sometimes we have troubles or uncertainties in life, things look like this pic I took the other day through my side mirror on the passenger side as we see a very bad storm is looming from behind coming toward us, chasing us so to speak down the freeway from the city that early afternoon.
With me? My uncertainty at this time is my mom at 93. It causes great concern, the ups and downs, and sometimes? I'll just light heartedly say to my Dad who has gone to Heaven...Oh Daddy what am I going to do? HELP!
I feel like the part of Sergeant York played by Gary Cooper as he cries out to God on the mountain that he needs help, an answer?!!!
But mainly? I cry out to God! HELP!
We need wisdom. Not as the world gives but as God gives.
...It is very unusual for there to be complete quiet in the soul, for God almost continually whispers to us. And whenever the sounds of the world subside in our soul, we hear the whispering of God. Yes, he continue to whisper to us, but we often do not hear Him because of the noise and distractions caused by the hurried pace of our life.

From my devotional, Streams in the Desert.
I thought this song by Twila Paris was so fitting.
When we see this, our grandchildren, our children, our neighbors, we know all in all, all is well with our soul. Nothing like innocent children doing their little dances in life, so beautiful as they play with such wreckless abandon in such a joyful and sweet, uninhibited way.
How 'bout we do the same? I've been doing dances in the kitchen, cooking, doing dances putting up clean clothes. Life is a dance isn't it? That's not to say sometimes I'm like Tevia in Fiddler on the Roof talking with the Lord when things are not going great. Trust me!
I hope you enjoy my re-post:
Photograph. Everytime I see your face...
A real silver lining last week one evening...
And in closing, a couple of makes I have managed to load:
Doggies, doggies, who loves da doggies? I do! Skirts are modifications of Simplicity 4881 (out of print). Both fabrics are cotton prints from Hobby Lobby.
Cute with bright colored or black/white tops.
And here ya go...What's not to love about Peanuts?
This brings visions of the Peanuts gang dancing in that iconic memory of happiness!
This isn't a "make" but it is a "wear". I take this back-pack purse everywhere, it's rare I'm not carrying this bag, I receive many compliments on it. It's big and it's whimsical and I can use it as a purse or backpack and it works. I love the kitties on it. I purchased this from the Animal Rescue site. My trusty little bottle of rubbing alcohol on the strap. It works and is functional like that.
Take care all...Prayers for all, many have suffered loss this year.
God please be with each of us in special ways as we listen for You and rest our head on Your shoulder.
Signing off for now from My Forest Cathedral...It's me, Amelia, that little gal with a Santa Claus on her head.
Bearing the burden of crushing weight actually gives Christians wings.
