Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and knows the One Who is leading.
It is a life of Faith, not of intellect and reason, but a life of knowing Who makes us "go." The root of faith is the knowledge of a Person, and one of the biggest snares is the idea that God is sure to lead us to success. Oswald Chambers
We had a lovely weekend, full of simple pleasures.... flea markets, horses, lunch out with daddy and music. I often, by choice, find myself a bystander.... observing and relishing in my children. Just watching them brings me happiness. Even though our life is full of uncertainties right now there is one thing that remains firm and solid. Christ. I have been re reading My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. You can find it free online at www.myutmost.org , but I guess I am old fashion, liking the feel of paper and ink on my fingers. Oswald Chambers had such spiritual insight and anything written by him is a treasure to read. As I woke early this morning while the house was still in slumber, I settled in a chair outside by our creek with Mr. Chambers and The Word in my hand ( along with a sweet cup of coffee ;) The air was still and the sound of the rushing waters along with God's word soothed my very weary soul. Such peace came over me.... I wish I could share it with you and hope you will search and ask for it. It is there waiting.
When the darkness of dismay comes, endure until it is over, because out of it will come that following of Jesus which is an unspeakable joy. O.C.

We are apt to imagine that if Jesus Christ constrains us, and we obey Him, He will lead us to great success. We must never put our dreams of success as God's purpose for us; His purpose may be exactly the opposite. We have an idea that God is leading us to a particular end, a desired goal; He is not. The question of getting to a particular end is a mere incident. What we call the process, God calls the end. O.C.

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 11:18-19
Oh! I always find it interesting to read bumper stickers --- they really tell about a person don't they? ;) Bumper sticker of the week:
"Save a cow, Eat a vegetarian"
Have blessed week...
