A Blessing Here...A Blessing There...Blessings, Blessings, Every Where.. .Part 4


Jane

from


had  a  give  away.

BLESSINGS...I  won.

~~~~~~~

I'm  not  bragging  that  is  for  sure.

I'm  just  praising  God  for  bringing  me

JOY  through  these  wonderful  give  aways

and  I  pray  God  blesses  them  back  100

times  in  the  way  they  need  it  most.

~~~~~~~

I  have  had  tragedy,  sickness  in  my  body,

my  husband  has  not  worked  since  2003,

he  has  had  3  back  surgeries  and  he  and

his  company  will

be  going  into  mediation  in  March....and  so

much  more  it  would  give  you  a  frizzy  perm.

~~~~~~~

We  seemed  to  be  in  the  desert  and  the  oasis

the  Bible  talked  about

just  could  not  be  found.  Our  lips  were

parched  for  a  drink  of  Hope.  For  a  time  period

I  wouldn't  even  pray  for  what  my  family  needed

as  if  I  prayed  it,  it  wouldn't  happen...

(Please  note,  it  is  so  NOT  about  us.  GOD

CARRIED  US...only  by  HIS  GRACE  AND  MERCY

did  we  stay  clutched  in  His  Hands  of  love  and

safety.) 

~~~~~~~

Now  that  was  a  lie  of  the  devil  to  get  me  to

stop  talking  to  God...and  to  live  in  fear.  If  he

can  keep  you  away  from  hearing  the  word,  and

create  such  a  turmoil  we  can't  even  go  to  the

Father  in  prayer,  we  are  in  a  very  sad  and

depressing  place.   Some  of  it  is  not  even  the

devils'  doings...we  should  take  blame  for  not  being

deeply  rooted  in  God's  word.

~~~~~~~




Some  times  for  no  reason  at  all,  God  blesses  us.

This  Flora  Doora  bag  came  in  the  mail,

Saturday,  January  26,  2011...

did  you  notice  what  the  date  of  the  picture

states...January  01,  2008

Boy  Jane,  it  has  been  in  the  mail  3  years...

that  is  so  funny.

~~~~~~~

The  yellow  discoloration  you  see  is  "not"  the  bag.

It  is  not  the  camera  but  the  yellow  spot  becomes

a  little  bigger  each  time  we  down             

 - load  our  photographs  to  the  computer.

It  depends  on  the  photograph  and  its  content

as  to  how  much   yellow  shows.

~~~~~~~

The  Flora  Doora  bag  is  a  beautiful  soft

blue  toile  and  cream.

It  is  lined  in  a  heavy  duty  clear  vinyl,

where  you  can  truly  put  live  flowers

and  not  worry  about  the  oasis  getting

the  bag  wet.

These  would  be  beautiful  in  weddings...

for  flower  girls,  bridesmaids,  even  the  bride

if  made  to  go  with  her  dress...June  has

pictures  on  her  blog  listing  the

numerous  ways  to  use  them...all  stunning. 




THANK  YOU  JANE,

FOR  MY  BEAUTIFUL

FLORA  DOORA  BAG...

"Spreading  Happiness  One  Bag  at  a  Time!"


Walker  asks,  "What  is  a  Flora  Doora,  Mommy?"

"Oh  Walker...you  are  such  a  handsome  office

assistant!  You  can  certainly  talk  with  those  big

eyes!  Daddy  and  I  love  you."

WALKER  IS  A  BLESSING!


MY  FLORA  DOORA  BAG  IS  A  BLESSING

LET  ME  OH  LORD  NEVER  BE
AFRAID  TO  WITNESS  TO  ANY
ONE  WHO  YOU  SEND  ACROSS  MY
PATH.

I  GIVE  YOU  ALL  MY  BURDENS
AND  GRIEFS  LORD,  AS  THEY  ARE
MUCH  TOO  HEAVY  FOR  ME  TO  CARRY

I  USE  TO  THINK  FATHER  GOD,  IT
MEANT  I  WAS  WEAK  TO  NOT  CARRY
MY  BURDENS...I  WORKED  HARD  TO  GET
THEM  ALL...THANK  YOU  LORD  FOR
THE  SMILES  AND  CHUCKLES.

I  LAY  EVERY  ONE  OF  THESE  PRECIOUS
NAMES  AT  YOUR  FEET,  KNOWING  THEY
ARE  INDIVIDUALS  NOT  LIMITED  BY
THEIR  DISEASES  OR  DISABILITIES...
THAT  YOU  ARE  THY  TRUE  PHYSICIAN
LORD.    WE  THANK  YOU  FOR  HONORING
THEIR  FAITH  LORD  AND  I  TRUST  YOU
LORD...THAT  YOU  ARE  THE  WORD  IN
FLESH  AND  YOU  KNOW  ALL  THINGS  EVEN
IF  WE  DON'T  UNDERSTAND...BUT  GIVE
US  THE  PEACE  TO  LIVE  WITH  YOUR
DECISIONS  LORD.

I  PRAY  LORD  FOR  WISDOM  ABOVE  ALL
OTHER  THINGS.  LET  ME  BE  A  BLESSING
LORD.

I  THANK  YOU  FOR  LOVING  US  LORD.
FOR  MY  SALVATION...THAT  YOU  HAVE
PREPARED US A PLACE IN  THE  PRESENCE
OF  OUR  ENEMIES.  THANK  YOU  LORD
FOR  THE  SMALLEST  TO  THE  BIGGEST
OF  THINGS  WE  NEED  JUST  TO  SURVIVE
LORD.   HELP  US  TO  BECOME  AWARE  OF
HURTING  SOME  ONE  WHEN  WE  DON'T
KNOW  WHY.

I  PRAY  AND  THANK  YOU  LORD  FOR
HEALING  BRUISED  HEARTS...AND
TURNING  ANGER  INTO  JOY.


"But  sanctify  the  Lord  God  in  your  hearts;

and  be  ready  always  to  give  an  answer  to

every  man  that  asketh  you  a  reason  of  the

hope  that  is  in  you  with  meekness  and  fear."

~I  Peter  3: 15






and  keep  you  until  we  blog  again.

You  are  so  unique  and  special.

Thank  You  for  spending  a  part  of 

your  Sunday  family  time  with  me.

I don't always comment on blogs, however, I wanted to just stop in and give you a big thank you for yours. It is a blessing. One that maybe you don't always hear, but those of us out in blogger world feel. God is using you in amazing ways.

Linda said...

Your blog is very inspiring, and your furry friends are adorable. I like The Sarge who lets you live in your house:)
Amazing that your gift arrived after three years, now that's a blessing.

I am so glad you stopped in and left me a comment. I am happy to meet you. Your story about the daughter you lost brought tears to my eyes...I am so sorry that you had to go through this.
I am a new follower as I have very much enjoyed my visit your page here...I will be back as often as I can. Being a single mom of 3 is a challenge...but add a blog that you love to the mix and it is hectic! lol
hugs new friend!

Walker sure is a handsome fellow, Debbie. Thank you for your beautiful comment on my blog. I can just about imagine your pain, and am humbled by your courage and grace.

That's such a lovely gift. I am glad it brought you joy.

Carol said...

I loved reading your Post this morning and left feeling so "Rejoiced" & "Rejuvenated". I know your path & journey has been a difficult one, however you have bounced back so gracefully. Each of us could take a lesson from you on how to handle Tribulation.

Blessings

Love your beautiful things you have been winning. So happy for you!
I do pray that your hubby's mediations go well with his company.
They think I need back surgery but I keep trying to make it without it.
Miss you honey
and love you
