I love this story and have heard it many times! It makes me cry every time to hear it but never loses its power to speak to me each time!  Lord, help me to grab every moment that you give me and do what you want to do.
Help me just to trust and obey!

  1. When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
    What a glory He sheds on our way!
    While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
    And with all who will trust and obey.
    • Refrain:
      Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
      To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
  2. Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
    But His smile quickly drives it away;
    Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
    Can abide while we trust and obey.
  3. Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
    But our toil He doth richly repay;
    Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
    But is blessed if we trust and obey.
  4. But we never can prove the delights of His love
    Until all on the altar we lay;
    For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
    Are for them who will trust and obey.
  5. Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
    Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
    What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
    Never fear, only trust and obey.

A cup of tea & Mother's (Mum's) Day.........

Mum's Day is celebrated in March here in Norther Ireland and the United Kingdom.  I had a very nice day.  It started off with breakfast in bed with my favourite foods(poached egg white, toast with butter spread to every corner and a cup of tea!   The off to church with to hear some good preaching( from a very good preacher :) )  Then Steve and David fixed fish and chips for lunch and cleaned up the kitchen afterwards (David drives 80 miles one way to be a part of our church and lead the music for us  so he spends Sunday afternoon with us and eats lunch every Sunday)

I received  some lovely presents from my kids! Taylor was very  thoughtful and picked out something that I wanted for our home (still decorating and unpacking so this was a very special gift-making our house a home)
Caoimhe, well she is a girly girl, and thought of me looking good when I go out! LOL  She is my fashion expert! She picked out something very practical here an absolute pretty scarf!

Even though we celebrate early, I didn't want to forget the special ladies in my life celebrating Mother's Day yesterday in the States.
The first special lady is my foster mom.   She is an amazing mom to her own girls but took me in at a very troubling time in my life & just loved me no matter the circumstances!!! She is a special lady to me & an awesome Granny to the kiddos!!!! I love you!!!

 Another special woman in my life is my Grandma Herbert. She has showed what a Christian wife & mother /grandmother is!!!! I credit that I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing now without the many prayers said by my sweet grandma!!!!

 Love & Miss both of this rocks in my life beyond measure!!!!!
Happy Mother's Day to all!!!! ♥
