i can't get over it...


I picked up Jesus Calling this morning to read today's entry... and I can't help but be amazed. I don't know why I wonder how He knows, but I can't get over it either. I want to shout His goodness and His knowledge from the rooftops. And so I share... again.

This is a time of abundqnce in your life. Your cup runeth over with blessings. After plodding uphill for many weeks you are now traipsing through lush meadows drenched in sunshine.

Oh yes, I am.
My heart feels light, my face is smiling.
I am off to spend tonight and tomorrow at my Mom's Christmas Bazaar with my whole family. We are even having a sleepover in the Africa Room. Hooray!

It feels like a holiday, and I receive this gift with the open hands that God desires me to. He reminds me that He is not about earning & deserving... He is about believing and receiving. My pleasure is His pleasure. Oh, thank you.

I hope your weekend is a bounty of sunshine and blessings. And... if you didn't read my last post, could you please? If you have ever known a military family, have ever wanted to help and maybe didn't know what to do or understand the emotions of it all... this might give you just a little insight.
Thanks... your friendship touches my heart.

You know what i thought when I read this post? I thought to myself, "Oh, Dawnie." Now, I don't know if anyone ever calls you Dawnie, but that's exactly what came to my mind. I was so glad and happy for you, thinking of you smiling and receiving His good gifts with open heart and hands.

I love you, girl.

See I read that in Jesus Calling myself and I laughed. Because I'm in a place where I have to look for the abundance, and very little about my life feels like a meadow of sunshine. But when I look for abundance I can find it, and for that I'm grateful.

Hope you have a great weekend. :)

I have strayed from your words for too long and I needed to see them tonight! I feel like a bad friend because I haven't visited for awhile.

Thank you Dawn for your words, I love every single one! it IS all about believing and receiving!!
