#3 - cute Dominic eyes!
The Gospel today.. how can I not go there? It is Jesus calming the storm - Mark 4:35-41
A wonderful quote which is so true for us..."Why do you fear? You are carried by Jesus! Jesus guides you, Jesus takes you in his arms, Jesus bears you in his heart." Wow! That certainly shows us that all our petty fears and anxieties should vanish in the LIGHT of Jesus' unconditional love and forgiveness, and not only that but after we are cleansed he will guide our ship through the waters and storms of life. It seems that my life is in the midst of a huge storm now with all my roots pulled out longing for the traveling soil to place them in.
Here is the page I devoted to this story - All I will share here is "Open to LIFE and raising LIGHTS for the world, which is the motto we live by and now that of our kids and their families!
Jesus, how can we question and whine about our upheaval when you are in the boat with us and are ministering to our weaknesses and needs? "Jesus, takes you in his arms and bears you in his heart." I am calmed and find peace within. The sun is warming my shoulder as I sit on the deck this moment in time, and I am so grateful for beautiful weather and a chance to be outside. We are reminded often that we should dwell on all our blessings and not the negative and just as the clouds part - the sun will come through and fill us with LIGHT/Truth! Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah

With all of us in a state of upheaval these days, and kind of messed up in how we are dealing with it all... the thought of the mustard seed taking root in our dirt kind of seemed like we needed to face the fact that we are traveling dirt these days. Just through the car wash and getting Ruth's gravel road washed off Nancy's car, and hearing from Pat that we will soon have to deal with living on a gravel road... Well, that dirt certainly can take hold and travel with you all the way to Kansas City!
Jesus, may we cling to you and your Truth which shows the path to follow. All of this change is hard and challenging. Give us the strength to go forth. We bask in the sunlight of your love and forgiveness. Jesus, we trust in you. Bless-bless, Barb

Reflecting in the warm sunny window.
A sunny snuggle...
Dominic's new haircut - so cute!
Blogging outside on the patio and watercoloring with grandkids and the help of a great children's book. It doesn't get much better. Did I mention 60 degrees? Jesus, we trust in you. Bless-bless, Barb
Such a beautiful witness to Jesus continuing to minister to us today!
