Words That Inspire

I've got confidence!

The Lord, He is the One who goes before you.
He will be with you, He will not
leave you nor forsake you;
do not fear nor be dismayed.
Deuteronomy 31:8
Confidence is a positive attitude toward the future, an assurance that whatever tomorrow brings, you can meet its challenges. With that in mind, Christians should be the most confident people in the world. As a believer, you have the privilege of serving the God who holds the future in His Hands.

Not one thing that happens to you surprises God or catches Him off guard. And He has promised to see you through every trial, every hardship, every heartbreak, every disappointment. Therefore, you can step into the future with confidence, knowing that the God who knows all and sees all has already paved the way before you and will be at your side until your journey's end. 

"Confidence in the natural world is self-reliance,
in the spiritual world it is God-reliance."
Oswald Chambers

Wishing you a beautiful week . . .

Words That Inspire

This is one of my favorite verses.

"What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee."
Psalm 56: 3

I memorized this more than 5 decades ago.
My little sister, Mary, who at the time was only 5 or 6 years old, quietly recited the verse while we were huddled in a closet.  The tornado siren had sounded. The lightening was flashing, thunder was clashing.  I will never forget that night.
In times like these this scripture is still resounding in my heart.

I'm going to print this free printable & frame it.  It's going to be displayed on my bedside table.  
If you would like a print, just click on the word source below the picture.  

Wishing you a calm & peaceful week . . .

Decor For Pre-Autumn

It's still very, very warm here in NE Oklahoma.
I'm slowly adding decor for pre-autumn.
Indian summer is so pleasant.

Words That Inspire


After I heard the song, 'Let it Go', from the movie Frozen, I said to myself,
 "That could be my theme song!"
My heart & soul knows that God is in control, but too many times my human nature wants to take over.  
My prayer today & everyday,
"Thy will be done, dear Lord!"  

Wishing you a day & week of peace & understanding . . .

Signs Of A New Season

I've been in a blogging slump for quite awhile.
When the calendar turned over to September I started getting excited about Autumn, my favorite season!
I threw together this little vignette on the mantel.  
Just a few hints of the approaching season.
 I printed this free printable from my Pinterest board for Autumn  Decorating.
A pitcher, a birdie & an amber beaded napkin ring.

~Albert Camus

Thanks for visiting!  I promise I'll be back soon!
