Wherever I have knocked,
a door has opened.
Wherever I have wandered,
a path has appeared.
Whatever be the depth of woe
Along the path that I must go,
I’ll sing my song—
My song of joy for all the love
That’s lavished on us from above,
And count no loss of treasure-trove
When things go wrong.
I’ll sing the sunlight, and the bright
Soft smiling stars that gem the night;
For gifts of good
That God hath spread along my way,
The lilt of birds in tuneful play,
The harvests full and flowers gay,
The whole day long
I’ll sing my song
~John Kendrick Bangs
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. ~Philippians 4:10 ✝

I give thanks for this very very rainy day—I can’t remember when we’ve had a rainy day like this. As long as there’s no flooding—it’s all good!! 🙂
Happy days to Texas—a wet cookie
Oh good, I’m so glad you too got your much needed rain. It had been a long time since it had rained that long here too. And today, it got up to 75 and I got to enjoy working in the yard all afternoon. So you’re right, it’s all good!!! Hugs and love, N ❤
I absolutely love this quote by Alice Walker Natalie. I feel very close to it, because I have lived it. Being a YWAM missionary for over 12 years now has given me amazing opportunities to really see this quote come to life. And once again, with our upcoming move and change in life, is just another opportunity to see this happen. Can’t wait. It always increases my faith and results in great joy and seeing the hand of God work in my life.
Thank you for sharing this. Oh yes, and I can’t forget to comment on this amazing little piece of artwork. I’m actually going to see if I can try and do something similar. I love it. Ahhhhhh, mixed media. I’m going to grow, for sure.
Love and hugs.
I pray your upcoming move is full of wondrous things that God has planned for you and yours. I knew you would like the mixed media image. I can’t wait to see what you create in that medium. Love and hugs to you as well, N ❤ ❤ ❤
