Thought for the day:


There is a whole world of difference between those who look only for their own happiness in this world and those who know that their true happiness lies in the will of God.

Such a good reminder! Makes me think of another one of hers I read a few nights ago, "A litte quiet reflection will remind me that yes to God always leads in the end to joy."

Thank you for giving of your time to be a blessing! Darling picture choice! Love YOU, and miss YOU bunches!!

Amen!!!

Take the world, but give me Jesus,
All its joys are but a name;
But His love abideth ever,
Through eternal years the same.

Oh, the height and depth of mercy!
Oh, the length and breadth of love!
Oh, the fullness of redemption,
Pledge of endless life above!

-Fanny Crosby

Amen! The greatest joy is knowing that you're in the centre of God's will.
