"Our happiness should not depend on the work we are doing, the place we are in, whether we are married or not, on our friends, our health or lack of these, our age, our abundance or want, whether people notice us or not, praise us or not, understand us or not.
No single one of these circumstances has any power in itself to upset my joy in God. But it can instantly and utterly quench it, if we look AT the circumstances instead of UP into the face of our God."

By Amy Carmichael, Edges of His Ways, p. 127

I like it! Your blog is the first one I've ever checked in to. It sounds like a living website. Go for it!

I was under the impression a blog was just an uninteresting blob of text--but not yours! There is spiritual "meat" --nourishment--in every post. This short one hit me right between the eyes. I should have nothing to complain about, do I? God is over all, yes all.

I found this quote today and had to share it...

“Change is a pot with many handles. You have to pick it up by the one that means the most to you. And sometimes, the handle you need to pick up is changing yourself so that you’re healthy enough to make change.”

Today my "mind" was put somewhat at ease with MY interpretation of some test results, tomorrow I will hear from the "specialist". All the prayers are much appreciated and welcome, now is the time for me to journey down a new path to a "healthy" change and trust and believe that God will take care of the rest! He definitely has given me my share of STRENGTH!! :o)
