Word Filled Wednesday



A few weeks ago I was privileged to spend some time with a sweet friend of mine, Ms. Dawn.  We've been friends for several years, having met when we worked for the same company.  Now, the "it's not odd, it's God" thing about it all....is that we actually didn't work together....but in offices 1.5 hours apart from one another.  We both firmly believe that God brought us together and we've remained friends, even though I no longer work there. 
One of the things that we enjoy doing....after we've enjoyed the salad bar at Ruby Tuesday, of course....is visit Hobby Lobby.  Now....there are several reasons why I love that store....but the top one is that it's Christian owned.  I don't know if any of you who visit there have ever paid any attention....but even the music played is Christian music.  I feel that adds to the very relaxed atmosphere in the store while you shop!!!

As we browsed thru the display of fall items....here's one that caught my eye because of my love of acrostics.....
Psalm 84:11a
For the Lord God is our sun and our shield.
      He gives us grace and glory.


I don't even want to think about where I would be without God's grace....and mercy....and I'm so glad that I called upon His name....over forty years ago!!!
 
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  9. Beautiful--Psalm 84:11, the display, and especially getting together with an old friend. Forty years on the journey, wow. I'm just a baby. I turn 23 years young this October. I gave my heart to Him in 1987 when I was 24 years old. You do the math. ;)

    Oh, I finally loaded those pictures of my bench. Hope you stop by for a visit this Rednesday. Have a lovely day.
