One September Day

A Wednesday to Remember

My original post for my walk down Memory Lane was put on the "back burner" of my mind for this week. All because the Lord had other plans than mine own for my life today and every day this week.
I just wanted to journal something that happened today, actually about 1/2 hour ago, that brought tears to my eyes, and a balm to my heavy heart.

You know how we sometimes let our circumstances control our emotions, and behavior? Our family is experiencing some difficult times right now.

I have allowed these circumstances to bring me down,, even when I know that my Lord is Sovereign.

About one hour ago, we received some very discouraging news, and I was feeling so overwhelmed. That feeling that makes the pit of your stomach feel so heavy, and your arms and legs a little shaky..


I was working thru these emotions.. all the while changing a diaper, laying kids down for naps, and nursing my baby.. when there was a knock at my door.

One of my dear friends,, with the prompting of the Lord.. made and delivered this special and sweet gift to me!



She told me that she knew I was probably already being reminded of God's Promises, and wanted me to have something "fun" to think about.


It worked ! Don't Worry - Be Happy!
This was my smile for today !

    Isn't it wonderful when friends (or sometimes people we don't even know!)listen to those little promptings. I hope that things get better. Thank you for sharing, the big smiley cookie made me feel better as well!!

    September, I love your name!...

    And I love your friend for ministering to you with the big, smily, cookie. Sometimes the littlest things can mean so much.

    Thank you for following my blog. I am looking forward to getting to know more about you too.

    I am glad that my daughter does this Weds. Walk thing. I am enjoying it very much.

    I hope the Lord will give you special blessings as you trust in Him.

    Keep smiling.
    God Bless!
    Linda
