Book Fair

So this morning, I took my daughter to a book fair in town. It was beautiful, so many kids and parents there. Most kids were young, but my 12-year old daughter loved it. She received 7 free books- 3 signed by the authors! She saw an illunstration demonstration. She put together 3 book-based crafts and heard cor u sing along music. It was beautiful! Everyone happy and excited about books and reading. Gives you hope for the future, that kids may continue to find books, and not just tech, an exciting and informative way to interact with the world!! And praise God one of the books and authors was Christian (other authors may have been and some other books were morally sound but not overtly Christian). It was a wonderful morning in the park with the book fair. 😃❤️

Drawing a Map

I am working on writing my autobiography, which is my attempt to testify to the greatness of God’s mercy, love, grace and provision for me all my life and as a way to determine the damage and repair of myself after and while in active recovery. I wish to focus on God first and foremost for He is the Champion.

But as I write this thing, and being a big picture person, I see a map drawn before me of the great occurrances of my life. And I see how my decisions caused many of the deviations and detours and how God kept up ahead of me every step of that crazy chess match. It shows that my relationship with Him, my salvation, was more important than veering from what I thought was His “big plan” for me. He was molding me, holding me or wrestling with me every step of the way so I would fall in love with Him back.

Pause. Just let that soak in because I am certain He has done that for you too. No one loves us more than Him, they can’t.😃❤️

Excerpt from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

From July 4:

“When you worship Me in spirit and truth, you join with choirs of angels who are continually before My throne. Though you cannot hear their voices, your praise and thanksgiving are distinctly audible in heaven. Your petitions are also heard, but it is your gratitude that clears the way to My heart. With the way between us wide open, My blessings fall upon you in rich abundance. The greatest blessing is nearness to Me– abundant joy and peace in My presence. Practice praising and thanking Me continually throughout this day.” ❤

~John 4:23-24; Colossians 3:16; Psalm 100:4

Excerpt from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

From June 24:

“Hold my hand- and trust. So long as you are conscious of My presence with you, all is well. It b is virtually impossible to stumble while walking in the light with Me. I designed you to enjoy Me above all else you will find the deepest fulfillment of your heart in Me alone. Fearful, anxious thoughts melt away in the light of My presence. When you turn away from Me, you are vulnerable to the darkness that is always at work in the world. Don’t be surprised by how easily you sin when you forget to cling to My hand. In the world, dependency is seen as immaturity. But in My kingdom, dependence on Me is a prime measure of maturity.” ❤

~ Isaiah 41:10; Ephesians 5:8; Psalm 62:5-6
