A Big Huge Thank you!

I am hoping this post gets a lot of hits because I want people to see this.

Some might know of the things I am facing in my life right now. They are not happy or pretty things but they are there none the less.

Maybe you know what is going on, maybe not, but I have had so many people praying for me and telling me words of encourgement that I feel I have to so something to say thank you. Since I have no money to throw a big thank you party a blog post dedicated to saying thank you is what your going to get!

So....


THANKS!!!!! SO VERY MUCH!!!


I am so thankful and greatful for all the prayers and support. God has been taking care of me every step of the way and me "handling" things good or whatnot is totally and utterly His doing. I am so nothing with out Him!

Please keep praying, my road isn't finished yet and I have several hills to climb. If you need some prayer just let me know! I am always praying and glad to add you into my prayers.

Thanks again everyone who has been kind and supportive. God bless you!

Poems

I have never really written any poems before today. I wrote two that have been images in my head for a while. I hope they help you and give you comfort.

Crossing the Stream of the Unknown

My path has lead me down a ways,
a way I would have never thought to take,
I stand before a rowdy stream,
unsure of which step to take.
I hold my foot out and prepare to get wet,
but a rock is underneath, holding my step.
I gasp with surprise and a smile rises to my face,
for I know You are there.
I take my next step with caution and excitement,
the water rushes under me no more,
for Your rock in there to guide me.
I give praise to You for each step I take,
knowing You are there guiding me.
My confidence in You rises,
as I cross this stream of this unknown.
Knowing You are providing,
You carry me across with each little stone,
right when I need it and not a moment before.
I make it across safely, and start
back on the path of life.


The Worry Wall

My worries come in all shapes and sizes,
and never seem to fit quite right where I want them.
I bend and break them to make them fit;
nothing ever works.
But You lead me into a room with a wall big enough to hold them all.
Each shelf has a place, a place for my worry.
I put each one there,
and leave them in your care.
Your wall is so big,and its room is always open.
I am safe in knowing,
my worries are in Your care.

life changes

I don't really want to say to much, but my life has taken a road I never expected it to turn down. Things are different, but are good because I know that the Lord is in charge of it all. This is the turning of a new page for me and it is scary and confusing, and just a bit exciting as well. I don't know what my future holds but I know who holds the future.
