Safe and Blessed




How often I would have gathered together your children ,even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings. Matt. 23:37 in part

It was a very strong storm that passed through my neck of the woods last evening. High winds, thunder,lighting...the whole shebang,but all is well this morning here on Red Rock Hill! I spent most of my evening watching the weather and humming Sheltered in the Arms of God! When things calmed down a bit I went to bed! I haven't checked the news to see if any damage was done,but I pray there wasn't. We did gets lots of rain,which was a good thing indeed!

So this morning I am having coffee,and counting my blessings..........


Home...........


Family......Vivian and Jaxon....Oh my, they didn't stay babies long!


Such a sweet face...baby Jax

Family!






Sons

Brothers and Sisters in the Lord!

Coffee in the morning,but tea in the afternoon   :)


I could go on and on,but I won't for your sake,....I am blessed,but thanks for indulging me as I count my blessings  :)

You too,are a blessing to me!

Shelly, I've been counting my blessings, the last couple of days, as well. Living in Oklahoma you learn to take one day at a time and take nothing for granted.

Grace & Peace,

Dear Shelley,

I am glad you were safe from the storm! I was thinking about you and wondering how you were. Counting our blessings is just the thing after a scary experience.

Love,

Marqueta

p.s. I love the photos of your family; they speak of great love.
