    Blessings to you this Sunday, Sandra. Today would be mother's 83 birthday and the hymn you quoted above, The King of Love My Shepherd Is, was one of her favorites.
    Thank you for your prayers for John and me. He is improving each day.
    Have a peaceful evening, Mildred

  2. love the inspiration you provide, thank you!

  3. Such beautiful and true words for this first Sunday of Advent.


  4. I'm on my 4th or 5th Sunday of honoring the sabbath, making sure I do no work or shopping, just enjoying nature and meditating more on God. Thank you so much for encouraging me through your blog and for praying for Greg.

  5. Many followers of Jesus are speaking of the LIGHT this first Sunday in Advent. It makes me feel blessed and included.

  6. oh really like the DH Gordon quote - you do a great job finding religious and relevant secular writings -
    don't know if that'll work for you - Anthony Evans sang at our church party tonight and this song quite touched me - God IS with us

  7. I have loved reading this after an afternoon spent arranging my two nativity scenes. I love reading each Sunday's writings you post, look forward to it.

  8. Still in my prayers, glad we are in yours. Just knowing is of comfort. God bless you m'dear.


Thank you for visiting Thistle Cove Farm; may God bless you, yours and the work of your hands and heart. My goal is to respond, here, to your comments although it may take a while.
