Monday, June4, 2006 Always a rainbow behind the clouds. Just sharing the beauty of God's handiwork. The Mission Mountain Range before a storm. The discussion question recently on Writers View 2(an on-line group ) was to discuss Writing Conferences and our response to them. This group is for beginning to intermediate writers and is always uplifting and encouraging to me. I have learned so much from the members of both groups, but have never felt I was "good" enough to take part in the discussions. These people are "pros" or they seem to have had more experiences than I have. However, this morning I decided to jump right in :-) Knowing that all who read ClellasCorner are not a member of this group I decided to share. I realize this does not interest the non-writer, but the main thought is PRAY. And then I realize this should interest us no matter what we do. Prayer is the answer. It seems the longer I live the more I pray. It would seem you would get better at it as time goes on,but in my case I just realize each day how much I need God's help for anything I do. The "pray without ceasing" admonition has become my motto. God is so good to me that I must spend so much time just thanking Him for the blessings of the day and then someone gets sick (yesterday it was my little granddaughter) and I must go to Him for peace and healing. Before I realize it someone in the church is in trouble spiritually or physically or mentally and I need to talk to God about them because who else can we turn to. So on and on it goes and the day is over and it is time for rest and he gives it to me every night.There is a saying someplace about "giving your cares to God before you sleep because He is going to be up anyway" :-) And I do try to do that. Once I go to bed I usually have very little trouble sleeping, but I do try to keep my lines to God open by continuous prayer...I can see His hand in all my life from the smallest of details in the day to the overall of the sixty-nine years I have lived.I would encourage you to go to His Word and then to prayer

What an incredible picture of God's love and grace! You made my night!

After an exhausting lat enight trip to Wal-Mart for groceries with 3 kids afoot, I needed a reminder of why we even bother with the details of life, like buying Goldfish crackers for my son.

Here it is. Because God loves us and cares for us, we are to care for one another.

And your photo is a vivid reminder of that for me....THANK YOU!!!

Blessings ot you,

Trish

Clella, this morning at the end of the church service the minister mentioned that a collection for the needy would be taken at the door as we left. "Give to the extent you have been blessed," he said. I turned to my husband and said, "We'd have to empty the bank account!" God has blessed us so greatly. I join you in praying without ceasing--and a part of that praying is for YOU!
