Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

You're on a roll, Marlene! Isn't it amazing how thankfulness begets thankfulness?

Marlene, my dear, I haven't been getting the dashboard alerts for your blog so I assumed you wouldn't be blogging until you got back. There's the lesson I learnt today: don't assume things!

You have such energy - I don't know how you squash in everything you have to do. Your quilts are beautiful but it's not something I could do because it takes such a long time and I am a bit impatient. I should work on that shouldn't I?

So many things bless our lives.... so much to be thankful for.
I am thankful for you and the examples you set for me.
Have a great week. Hugs, Lura

#30 is my favorite on this list. Teenagers can grieve me so or bless my socks off!! They're great!

Mmmm Tazo Chai Tea Lattes :) I had my first yesterday, blended with ice. It was heaven on a hot day.
