Sweet Shot: life blooms

Sweet Shot Day


The branches look dead and lifeless all winter.

But appearances can be deceiving.




Life bursts forth in due season!





For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;



Faint not. This is just for a moment. Glory is coming.

Marsha, Thank you for a beautiful blog. You are so generous with your heart. I have just spent the past I don't know how long reading about Christian and your journey through grief posts. I love how you articulate your journey and how you speak to the Lord and your faith. I was brought to Him through the grief of losing my brother, and my heart will choose to say Blessed be His name.

I had to come by and say "hi". I was commenting on Folded Gingham and you'd posted right before me. I noticed your name and laughed. I've always said that if I had a $1 for every time I've heard "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia", I'd be a wealthy woman :-) I'm a homeschooling mom too.
Blessings,
Marcia
