some encouragement for the weekend

We complain about the cross we bear but don't realize it is preparing us for the dip in the road that God can see and we cannot. Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, there will always be sunshine, after the rain... Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall; but God's always ready, to answer your call... He knows every heart ache, sees every tear, a word from His lips, can calm every fear... Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night, but suddenly vanish, by dawn's early light... The Savior is waiting, somewhere above, to give you His grace, and send you His love.

I received this beautiful illustration via email and just had to post it here. Hopefully it encouraged your heart, just as it did mine.

I just linked to this post. Thanks for sharing it. It made me look at some things a bit differently today. Praying for ya'll.

Thank you. When you realize that the trials are just that, and that my Savior planned it all, it's easier to count them all joy. We're here to show the others around us and behind us how great God is, to carry all of the burdens. Oh, to be willing to apply it all to our lives! Love, Amy

So sweet!
I think I found you online! Here is Seal's video. I just need to know what color shirt you were wearing to confirm it was you!

And I think Seal needed this word after his song lyrics "I'm afriad to die, I don't know what's up there beyond the sky." That's the part where I thought I saw you!

Thanks so much for ministering to my soul today. Both my hubby & I are experiencing some health trials. Once again, you've pointed me to God! Thank you!

Hey,
The link didn't show up on here, I got it from Regis and Kelly's site in the archives.

You have become quite the amazing woman KASEY!
