Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.        
                    Psalm 150:6 

Well I got a call that someone found my wallet today and all the way there I prayed that the money would still be in it, of course it wasn't and I was upset at first, but as I thought about it I realized that even without the money it is truly a blessing and I really think that it was a wake up call to me from God that I need to be more careful and responsible and also that I should be thankful and praise Him that I got all my identification cards back.

No matter your circumstances, you can praise God for who he is and his everlasting love for you. He is the Creator of the universe, the Redeemer of your soul, and the Life in your life. How awesome is God. (Taken from "A Mother's Prayers For Her Children" by Nancy Ann Yaeger)

Such a sweet heartfelt post! My purse was stolen out of a shopping cart a few months ago with all my money for the entire month in it. I was devastated, but survived and can look back now and laugh about it, hoping they enjoyed spending my money and having a high old time, but wondering how they feel when they look in the mirror. God truly does work miracles in our lives. A couple of months after that happened, I found a very expensive purse left in a shopping cart outside a store, took it to the police station so it could be returned to its rightful owner. The lady sent me a thank you card and a reward! My daughter in law said that it was no accident that it was me who found that purse, that God had me find it because He knew I would return it!! (Your blog is very pretty)

That is a great story of how God works things in our lives, I love to hear stories like that, they help keep me strong when it would be so much easier to just give up and lose patience waiting for Gods plans in my life. Thank you for the compliment on my blog, I am just learning but like I said before if what I write encourages one person and brings them closer to God that will be enough for me. I hope you have a blessed day :)

Thank you, Sweetheart! Yes, it would be very easy to just give up, and there are times I think I might as well do just that, then God steps in, gives me a reason to keep on keeping on, promising to always be by side when the difficult times come. Thank you for what you do.
