Happy New Year…

This morning, my friend sent me a beautiful picture of an owl. She knows my love for owls, I collect them like other people collect Precious Moments or dishes or Willow Tree Angels. It’s funny how one little picture can turn into such a blessing. It made me feel loved/happy to know she thought of me when she seen it and took the time to share it. What made it even more special was later in the day, something reminded me of it again. I’ve stayed in for most of […]

There on a tree branch, sat one of God’s creatures, with it spitting snow all around, just resting. (I felt like this little bird was placed there just for me from my Heavenly Father.)

Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?  “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;  and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?  “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you […]
