Mayberry RFD?

My favorite show, The Andy Griffith Show. I still enjoy watching it, though I seldom get a chance to sit down to see tv lately. They had their problems in Mayberry but Andy could usually find the solution and all would end happily ever after. It was just a show with writers who could create the dilemma and with the stroke of their pens, change hearts and minds and make it all better. What power. In our world of real hurts, real losses and tragedies, we go to the words penned by men as the Holy Spirit gave them. And there is awesome power. His Words are life.
I have had a very emotional weekend. I worshipped with friends at the wedding of one of my best friend's son. I grieved with another friend whose son and daughter-in-law lost a baby at the ninth week of pregnancy. I prayed earnestly for God to protect a dear young friend in need of divine direction. The struggles of the past days watching my mom come from really bad shape to an amazingly wonderful place as God has blessed plus all the emotions of giving up one way of life for another as my husband starts his last full week at work before retirement (or re-wirement) added to these very intense throbs of my heart and brought me "to a point". My heart felt like a dandelion when the wind puffs and a thousand pieces fly through the sky. Lots of emotion. Not grieving or sadness, deep emotion. And He ministered His Word to me. His Word speaks to the celebrating, the grieving, the concern, the future expectations. His sufficiency through all these situations is a little bit of Heaven on earth. It is His Kingdom ruling in our lives here and now.
I don't really know what I am trying to say. I guess just that I praise Him. I thank Him for His Word. I thank Him that He is sovereign, that He loves me and He loves those I love more than I can understand. And that in the events of the present He continues to prove Himself to us. And I know He will continue to do so in the future. He is so good, so good. He's so good to me.

I know. I 100% agree. The love He has, the gifts he gave and still gives, the concern and care to each and everyone. All of these unwavering. All thanks and praises to Him.

Jennifer this was a precious post! So poetic and lovely and still infused with the childlike dependence on our loving Father. Your dandelion picture captured what I am feeling often when the stresses weigh heavy on my aching heart. Just remember: all those flying fairy seeds of a dandelion float down and start new life. Truly a beautiful picture as you and your dear husband put out some new roots in a new space of life. I look forward to watching you bloom and praise Him all the while.

Wonderful news about your mom! What a gift . . . what lightness after so much darkness for a time. God is good.

Well, it promises to be another beautiful day in my gardens, so I must be off this box and into my flowery wonderland. Have a great day, sweet friend.

p.s.
We have Mayberry on dvd and the kids LOVE to watch it. Such clean and funny and joyful slices of life. ; )

Hello again, just dropping by again to answer your question. Nestle cream is an all purpose cream. The "Nestle" is the brand and i guess I just got used to calling it that cause I always use it :-)

Sometimes things can explode and get so busy you don't know how you keep going. We all need time to sit back and have silent times with Him. Silent times with ourselves. I know how you feel and think to myself, wouldn't it be so much harder going through these times on our own?

Very glad your mum is getting better. My three months of blogging about my diet will be over at the end of ths month and I will be looking forwards to visiting my blogger friends more ofter :0)
