347. I believe in pink…and I believe in miracles. ~Audrey Hepburn

I think miracles exist
in part as gifts
and in part as clues
that there is something
beyond the flat world
we see.
~Peggy Noonan

If, I can someday see M. Claude Monet’s garden, I feel sure that I shall see something that is not so much a garden of flowers as of colours and tones, less an old-fashioned flower garden than a colour garden, so to speak, one that achieves an effect not entirely nature’s, because it was planted so that only the flowers with matching colours will bloom at the same time, harmonized in an infinite, miraculous stretch of blue or pink.  ~Edited and adapted quote by Marcel Proust

You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among your peoples. ~Psalm 77:14 ✝

Thank you, Jesus, that you save, you heal, you restore, and you reveal Your Father’s heart to us! You have captured me with grace and I’m caught in Your infinite embrace!

      • I’m in a lot of pain this evening and have been for days for that matter, and I’m feeling pretty sorry for myself. The doc is gonna try another injection on my knee and he’s sending me to a specialist about my foot. He’s also going to run a Doppler arteriogram to see if maybe poor circulation is what I’ve been thinking was RLS. In the meantime, I’m at an all time low dealing with all this pain. So please keep me in your prayers. Your post hit the nail on the head with so much of what’s happening to me right now, and I’m just not sure there’s all that much more beauty to be dredged up out of my soul. Hugs from a very sad Natalie 😦

      • Oh quite to contrary—there is still beauty…for there is indeed beauty to be found hidden within the pain and suffering.
        I will pray even more so, as each morning I have been asking for God to bring peace and healing to Natalie in Texas 🙂
        I will continue with the prayers. Have I mentioned this to you before? You may or may not be familiar with Padre Pio—the Italian capuchin monk from southern Italy. John Paul canonized him not long before his own death.
        I’ve read a great deal about Padre Pio. He suffered grievously as he had received the signs of the stigmata as a young man. He suffered a great deal of physical pain, plus emotional pain from his own church who at one point almost striped him of all his priestly duties, placing him under a bit of house arrest, plus, he like other saintly souls, fought bitterly with many a demon come to torment the ever staunch warrior of God.
        Padre Pio states that it is when we are at our lowest points in life–be it from pain, suffering, sorrow, or all of such, that God, draws the closest to us–suffering along side us. That concept is a tough one to comprehend when one is in the midsts of such a bad, sad, and painful place—but we must hold on to the knowledge that He has suffered greatly and wishes to spare us of such —so we will continue in our prayers of healing and peace–
        My love and prayers to you Natalie–
        Julie

      • Thank you so much for you kind words and prayers! I’m not familiar with Padre Pio and so I thank you for telling me the story. I’ve had a better day today. I hope yours was a good one too. Hugs, Natalie 🙂
