Happy Leap Year, 2016

Hello, Friends

I have felt the urge to write again today and couldn’t let Leap Year pass by. Every 4 years, we get an extra day, February 29. That always fascinates me, it feels like an extra special day.

It’s spring in Houston and we are going through our cool, chilly mornings, dissolving into warm afternoons. About the time we think winter is over, another chilly spell comes in and we have also had some significant wind gusts from time to time. I am far from complaining, though…the 100 degree summer days will be here soon enough, so I’m very thankful for each cool, brisk day that The Lord gives to us…I actually love it!

There are also changes going on inside of my heart and soul. I’ve been having a multitude of growing pains lately…spiritual growing pains. I’m getting to that age where I wonder about my life…where has it gone, what have I accomplished, have I made a difference in anyone’s life? I’ve been praying quite a bit and asking the Lord Jesus to show me His Plan and His life purpose for me. How can I make the greatest contribution to His Kingdom during this season of my life?

I am just now remembering the Scripture from Lamentations 3: 22-23 “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your Faithfulness.”

Thank you, friends, for stopping by for a visit.

Happy New Year, 2015!!!

Hello, Friends

I can’t believe it has been over a year since my last post. It seems like time races faster and faster with each passing year. My last post was September, 2013 and…where, oh, where did 2014 go??? It just zipped by, full of activities and growing pains in this girl’s life. 

I have experienced so many things and am learning so much about myself these last few months…but then, that’s a very good thing. I’ve discovered that we’re never too old to learn new things about ourselves…many times, taught to us through experiences with others. 

I’m just so thankful that I have a Heavenly Father who knows me and understands me intimately, as well as friends and family who love me and are there for me.

Thank you WordPress friends for reading this, and I’ll talk to you again, soon.

Good night 🙂
