and there are no grapes on the vines,
and the fields produce no food,
and no cattle in the stalls,
Lord, thank you for special friends that pray with me, listen to me and encourage me. Please grant safe travel to friends that are flying home today.
If you have been here in recent weeks, you know that I have felt dry and desolate.
Words have not been flowing. I am praying that the Lord will bring me out of this funk.
That I can find my way back to a good place for writing.
In the last few months, the Lord has shown up in ways that are beyond understanding and comprehension. Just when I think things are about to hit bottom…in walks the Lord with an answer and a way completely OUT. OF. THE. BLUE. Many of these things cannot be shared on this blog…but know that I appreciate your prayers, if you’ve been praying for me. I also appreciate your patience. Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart.
The scripture I chose today is used on the May calendar available at inCourage. Did you know they have a calendar available every month that can be used as computer wallpaper? I love it.
Today, I am having lunch with Kathleen and Matt. Then, I get to have fun with Matt while Kathleen has an appointment.
I am basically done with work for the semester…which is wonderful. I hope to get some things done around my house this summer and I hope to have an announcement on this blog in the next week or so about a new adventure on which I will be embarking.
What are you doing these days?
Mary, your openness gives us all courage…Life has it's ups and downs and remembering to keep our focus on God can be trying at times but you always direct our attention to the creator. I am sorry about your "dry" time but with an adventure on the horizon maybe that is all going to change…..
I can't wait to hear all about it…..
Oh, Nancy…you are always such an encouragement to me! Thank you for your faithfulness.
God is good 🙂 And He is always at work in our lives. Dryness comes and goes but we can always count on the Lord.
I hope you enjoyed your lunch with Kathleen! I can't wait to hear about your new adventure!
Yes, Mary God is good, isn't he!?!?
Had a great lunch with Kathleen…
Love that verse.
Adventure … sounds fun.
Well–we have all been there or going through it–and the only thing I know to do–is to focus totally on Him–getting away for total quiet time–and then just wait expectantly.
Looking forward to your news, take care and remember a quiet time does not mean a quitting time, it just means 'it is quiet' for now.
