A TIME TO TALK

X0XO...AMY...XOXO
ALWAYS  IN  OUR  HEARTS







SOMETIMES  WE  ARE  ON  A  DIRT

ROAD  BUT  IT  IS  "COMFORTABLE!"

THE  SUN  IS  SHINING...

BEAUTIFUL  WHITE  PUFFY  CLOUDS...

ALL  SEEMS  RIGHT  WITH  THE  WORLD!








THEN  YOU  COME  TO

"THE  FORK  IN  THE  ROAD!"

THEY  BOTH  LOOK  INVITING...

NOT  MUCH  DIFFERENCE  REALLY...

THE  LEFT  ROAD  LOOKS  LIKE  IT

HAD  THE  MOST  TO  OFFER...THE  RUTS

SHOW  MORE  PEOPLE  TRAVELED  IT






UP  AND  DOWN

UP  AND  DOWN

UP  AND  DOWN





THEN  IT  IS  FIGHTING

UP  HILL... "ALL  THE  WAY"

WITH  AN  OCCASIONAL

CURVE  BALL...

THEN  WHEN  YOU  THINK

YOU  HAVE  FINALLY 

"MADE  IT  TO  THE  TOP"...




YOU  FIND  YOURSELF

"HUGGING  THE  CLIFF!"

HAVE  YOU  EVER  BEEN  THERE???

I  KNOW  YOU  HAVE!!!

I  DON'T  KNOW  WHO  I  MAY  BE

TALKING  TO  TODAY...

AND  IT  DOESN'T  MATTER,  AS

LONG  AS  "YOU  KNOW,"

"YOU  ARE  NOT  ALONE!"



HERE  AT

SIMPLY  DEBBIE

I  PRAY  THAT  IT  IS

GOD'S  DESTINY

THAT  DREW  YOU  HERE

TO  MY  BLOG

AND  THAT  YOU  WILL

FIND  INSPIRATION.




GOD  NEVER  PROMISED  THAT

THERE  WOULD  NOT  BE  STORMS...

THAT  OUR  ROAD  WOULD

NOT  BE  FULL  OF  RUTS,  BUMPS,

BUCKETS  AND  BOULDERS...UPS 

AND  DOWNS

  BUT  THAT  HE  WOULD

ALWAYS  BE  THERE  WITH  US.

HE  WANTS  US  TO  TALK  TO  HIM...

TO  PRAISE  HIM  AND  MAKE  A

JOYFUL  NOISE.

THERE  IS  A  RAINBOW  WAITING 

FOR  YOU,  MY  FRIEND...EVEN  THOUGH

RIGHT  NOW  IT  SEEMS  TO

BE  YOUR  DARKEST  HOUR.




A  TIME  TO  TALK

~ROBERT  FROST


WHEN  A  FRIEND  CALLS  TO  ME

FROM  THE  ROAD

AND  SLOWS  HIS  HORSE  TO

A  MEANING  WALK,

I  DON'T  STAND  STILL  AND

LOOK  AROUND

ON  THE  HILLS  I  HAVEN'T  HOED,

AND  SHOUT  FROM  WHERE  I  AM,

WHAT  IS  IT?

NO,  NOT  AS  THERE  IS  A  TIME 

TO  TALK.

I  THRUST  MY  HOE  IN  THE

MELLOW  GROUND,

BLADE-END  UP  AND  FIVE

FEET  TALL,

AND  PLOD;  I  GO  UP  TO

THE  STONE  WALL

FOR  A  FRIENDLY  VISIT.





A  FRIEND  IS  SOMEONE  WHO

KNOWS  THE  SONG  IN  YOUR 

HEART  AND  CAN  SING  IT  BACK

TO  YOU 

WHEN  YOU  HAVE  FORGOTTEN

THE  WORDS.

~author  unknown




"COME  UNTO  ME,  ALL  YE  THAT

LABOR  AND  ARE  HEAVY  LADEN,

AND  I  WILL  GIVE  YOU  REST."

~MATTHEW  11:28


THANK  YOU  FOR  STOPPING  BY

FOR  A  VISIT  TODAY.

YOU  ARE  SPECIAL.

HUGS

Debbie...these are mighty words and words that inspire....thank you.

I consider it such a privilege to be able to talk to my GOD each day..thank HIM for the blessings in my life....and asking HIM to grant the needs we have that are important to my family. ~ACCORDING TO HIS WILL.
KNOWING HE is there for me... no matter the time of day.
Seems like HE would need to rest..but apparently not. TOO MUCH TO take under consideration from us ...HIS beloved.

This is a beautiful post, Debbie, and a perfect message as I drink my first cup a coffee for the morning, and prepare for the rest of my day! Hope you're enjoying this beautiful summer day too! ((hugs)) ~tina

Mary said...

Thank you for the reminder of God's faithfulness!! I have been feeling a little blue, and instead of talking to my Abba about it, I've just kind of been feeling sorry for myself!!!
Yep, time to talk!!!!

You sure have left me with a song in my heart. Youngest daughter struggling and we are so proud of her and know that God is walking beside her. You are so strong and full of faith. Enjoyed being here today. blessings

I always feel better after reading one of your posts, Debbie, even if I didn't know I was kind of down -- you seem to be able to tell when people are hurting and offer your cup of kindness so generously - thank you --

This is an Amazing post and the photos are very appropriate. My sister is on a difficult journey and I will print this and mail it to her. I took her to Church w/me for the first time in a very long time. She went to the alther and cried. I'm praying that she will soon find rest in Jesus and turn "it" all over to him.

Love you and just stopped by to say Happy Thursday!

Love and prayers

Debbie, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your sweet comments. I am so so sorry for your loss of your daughter so young. Our precious Scott was born just 3 days after your sweet Amy and we about lost him at birth. he had surgery within the first hours of life. He was born at 7 months as was his oldest brother.
I do not understand Heavenly Father's plan for each of us but know he has one and is in charge.
Your beautiful words touched my heart and it is so true of life.
I pray you can continue to feel the sunshine on your face and the love that Heavenly Father wants you to feel.
Thanks again for your visit and I want to wish you a fun and safe 4th of July! ~♥

Hi Debbie,

All of this is SO true!
Thanks so much for coming to my blog! I am having a linky party next week...I hope you'll come on over and read about it...nothing to make for this one! Just take a pic!
It's about where our spiritual place is.
Hugs,
Cindy
