It's a Beuatiful Day... Filled... with... Blessings... : )

Oh My!
Yesterday... was quite a Day...
to say the least...
: )
Got the Fuso... fired up...
shoveled snow... to make a path... to the rabbit hole...
and started unloading the truck... while waiting for Liz...
She was running late... but... since my cell phone had met it's demise...
in my morning mug...of brew...
I didn't know, if she had something come up....
or was simply... running late...
I kept goin'.... then... she arrived...: )
We got so much done....
I have to gather, and pack smalls... then...finish loading 'bigs'...
this week...
but... it's about half done... : )
As she handed me things, out of the truck... we talked...
I was sharing... some of the 'mountains'... that seem to keep popping up...
in the road...
{complaining.... worrying... stewing...}
and I said...
"Today... I'm asking the Lord... To Shower Us... with Blessings... and get us through...
and Over them.."
her reply...
"We are... already... so very Blessed..."...
{Liz, and her little Family... have had their own...'mountains'... the last few weeks...}
I stood back... looked at her... standing in the back..of The Full...  soon to be unloaded...
 Big Truck...
it was 12 degrees...
and smiled...
Blessing...
I was looking into the eyes... of Such a Beautiful...one...
and... agreed...
But... I'm pulling on His Ear... More....
I know... there is Nothing too Big... for Him...
and I THANK Him... for the Blessings...Now...
and...The Blessings... that are On Their Way!!!...
It reminded me, of one of my favorite Joel Osteen Sermons...
'The 7th Year'...
: )
{I Hope... you'll take a half hour... and listen to it....
I have watched it several times... and enjoy it... and...
Believe it....
No Matter... how big... the  mountains are.... You have to keep moving towards them....
with Trust... {sometimes... it can be mighty difficult... but... those are the times... you learn the most... I am Thankful...for Them... and see them as Blessings.... {tho... it might take me a moment... or...two... : ) : ) : ) }
I just asked the Lord... to help me find the 'right way'... to put my thoughts, into words...while writing this... I turned to my Streams in the Desert...
my Daily Devotional {never far away...from my hands...}
 {I don't look at it by the day....anymore... I ask the Lord... to guide my hands... and show me... what I need to see...}
Today, I opened it to see my hand writing...
I had written in pen.... on this page....
"Gifts of Myrrh"...
oh my...
: )
"Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?"
{John 18:11 }
The first paragraph reads...
God is a Thousand times... more meticulous with us...
than even an Artist is... with his canvas....
Using many brushstrokes...of Sorrow... and Circumstances, of various...colors....
He Paints us... in the Highest, and Best Image He visualizes...
If...we only receive...His bitter, gift of Myrrh... in the right spirit"...
{see... there it is... and all I had to do... was... ask... : ) }
I won't give... the mountains... any time... and tell ya... what they are....
there is nothing... you could do about them, anyway....
and... the more I Climb... the Stronger... my Faith... and Muscles... Grow!
{ I'll take your Prayers...tho... : ) }
Someday... I will write about them.... when I can show you... over and over...
the mountains... the struggles... {I had someone say... to a friend, and it got back to me....
 "Gee....her life is so good... she never has any problems.... " }
and... then show you... how they were...one...by... one....
overcome...
This Journey.... is quite...a journey....
oh my...  : )
We All... have 'mountains'...
and 'gifts of Myrrh'...
some... have more, than you'd ever imagine....
It's...Those... that Inspire, me so....
and help...me... keep climbing...
{a.k.a. Angels... }
Love to ya...
