change...


Have I ever mentioned I *hate* change?

I fight it with all I have in me.

I am loyal to a fault because of it...

I want to fix it, to salvage it, to keep it

whatever *it* is...


I've had some news,

some quite unexpected news.

But a dear friend shared this

(in another context)

but how good is our God

I needed *this*




Do not look forward to the changes

and chances of this life in fear;

rather look to them with full HOPE,

that, as they arise,
God ,
whose you are,

will deliver you out of them.

He has kept you hitherto-do you but hold fast
to his dear Hand,


and He will lead you safely through all things;

and,

when you cannot stand,

He will bear you in his arms,

Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow;

the same everlasting Father who cares for you today,

will take care of you

tomorrow and every day.


Either He will shield you from suffering,

or

He will give you unfailing strength to bear it.

Be at peace then, and

put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.

St. Francis DE SALES




Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
Isaiah 12:2


also, please pray for "our" babies

Psalm 91 He will give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.
I am praying protection over you and your babies...praying that the God who formed your precious babies (Psalm 139:13) will also protect them in His loving arms.(Deuteronomy 33:27)
"Underneath are God's everlasting arms"
Blessings, Debbie

Rene...I have just prayed for your babies...and I just loved your post. I have just come through a very difficult past 9 months and these were all the things our Lord showed me through it all. He is our Constant, when in our world circumstance we feel we are drowning. I love your words and thanks...
