the dandelion patch

Remember when you were little .. .
and you lay on the grass. . .
and looked at the clouds?
I'm there again.
I don't intend to let the busyness of life rob me of the moments
that are a gift to me.
What will I gain by finishing all my projects today?
What is it that we are growing in our life?
Are we building positive memories that will sustain us during difficult times?
Are we going to be thankful tomorrow for the decisions that we made today?
Yesterday on our date, we just felt so thankful ..
for one another.
Are we just lucky?
Did we just by chance choose the right mate?
Is it because we've made some choices in our marriage to protect it?
These are questions we've asked ourselves recently.
I certainly don't know all the answers but I know who to thank .. .
Thank you Lord for this man ..
who remains faithful to me.
After our date of going out and purchasing a new chair. . (which you'll see soon)
we went to Dairy Queen and celebrated . .
Have a wonderful day my friends.

    Lovella, I have just found your blog today, and you are already speaking to my heart. That was edifying, encouraging and great advice.

    Thank you first of all for your kind sweet words on my blog, and guess what….I did it. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me about draft blogger. I had no idea it existed. I am so excited to have had your help to show me the way!

    I noticed you had some of my friends on your sidebar, I'm sure we will be running into each other again :]

  10. As Charlotte also said, you are confirming what I've been hearing from the Lord in my own heart recently....slow down, look and see, enjoy the gift of the moment, be still and know He is Lord...be aware, be attentive.

    The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies are new every morning! Amen!
