For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Sunday - My gift to you.


This is the wish we should all have for each other:

Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life."

Love the scripture, Sandie. It is comforting to know God is close to the brokenhearted. I think this is a scripture we need to memorize, to remember, because I know we all go through periods of time when we are indeed brokenhearted!

I hope your Sunday is a good one!

Sandie, I like your Sunday messages. This one is really comforting, especially your "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted." I know from experience that this is true, very true.

You have a nice readership and your 'friends' seem to be enjoying Sunday's posts. I had a few complaints when I stopped doing that but it seemed more avoided coming on Sunday than came.

My Sunday/Monday post is a meme where we are to write, using a piture prompt, a micro-fiction story with no more than 140 characters. A lady named 'Susan' had done it before and generally had around 50 writers. This one run by 'Grandma' is small with about a dozen writers by Monday evening.

I also participate in another short, picture prompt orienented, writing exercise on Saturdays. It called 'Saturday Centsus' and is on my other blog.

Amen Sandie. What a beautiful verse. How many times I've been the broken hearted one.
