"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

shelter



I would hurry to my place of shelter, 
far from the tempest and storm.  psalm 55:8

He who dwells in the shelter of the most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."  psalm 91:1-2  

"Because he loves me," says the Lord, 
"I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.   psalm 91: 14

Blessings,  Debbie

  5. Who lives in that cozy shelter? So sweet. Have you read the book First We Have Coffee? When Mama needed a bit of shelter, she would pull her apron up over her head. Love it.

  18. I was just reading the other day a legend about when the Holy Family was fleeing into Egypt - an olive tree opened up and they put the Baby inside while Herod's soldiers passed by. This tree reminded me of that!

  20. The only trouble with this is that HIS "safe" and mine are often not quite the same. It's all this darned learning and growing we have to do. Ultimately, I am glad that I believe in the purpose of life, and love my assurance that what follows the scary, painful parts of this life will be rejoicing and total relief. "Thy will be done," then, will carry me through the trial by fire that is mortality. That will be my comfort and stay.
