Encouraging word

This is the message God left for me first thing yesterday.  I woke up feeling the need to spend time in quiet with God, tried to read Ephesians but it was a little unfocused.  Ended up listening to the song 'Draw me Close to you', the cry of my heart yesterday.  Eventually felt refreshed and calmed in my spirit, went to sort the myriad of boxes on my craft table and this little gem showed up.  I smiled.  While in quiet time with God I kept thinking "I need only be silent, He will fight for me"... help will come.   When I saw this card I smiled because it was God reminding me He is here, He won't  leave me/us.  And the helping hands were Kori and Mom coming to sort flood boxes.  I need only be patient.  

And then the message on Kelly and Michael.  And then the groceries. 

So many tangible reminders God placed in my path yesterday to lift my spirit and renew my hope.  

I am so blessed.

Thank you to each of you who are moving and carrying and praying us along this path... Can you see how God moves our days so our paths cross and we lift each other up?  How amazing to be part of His awe-some plans!!!


  1. Hi Kristin, hope you are having a good day today, I read about you having to pack up your craft room and it got me thinking. (this is where my husband inserts a groan!) Are there any other quilters out there that could take some of your material and make you something, I know how much fabric can remind you of good times or be a comfort, maybe we can make a lap quilt for you or some pillows for the kids all with fabric that means something to you. Anyone interested? Please contact me Leanna Bonneau, Lots of Love to you and your family always, Leanna

    1. Oh Leanna, you are so kind! I did send a lot of fabric to my friend Bonnie to sell for me and kept the super-special things which are now in a warehouse somewhere in rubbermaid bins til Christmas. Poor, lonely fabric... keep each other warm, my lovely fat quarters!!! You, Leanna, are SO SWEET!

  2. Thank you...this is so encouraging. :) to be okay with being silent and actually listening and waiting to hear God and watch Him work... amazing! hugs, Devana
