"God is the God who follows. . .

I wonder. . .have you sensed Him following you?


We often miss Him. . .But He comes. . .

Through the kindness of a stranger.  The majesty of a sunset.  The mystery of romance.

Through the question of a child or the commitment of a spouse.  Through a word well spoken or a touch well timed.  Have you sensed His Presence?"~Max Lucado

 My prayer for myself and for you, my friends and family, is that we will sense His Presence each day of this coming new year.  I wish for you peace and joy, love and contentment!!

My celebrations for this holiday season are almost over.  I have one more celebration to make and that is with my son and his family in New Mexico.  I told my grandchildren there that I have the back end of my SUV loaded with their presents, and I will be on my way there just after the first of the year.  I am excited to see them!  I celebrated with my other son and his family the weekend before Christmas.  We had great fun!  God bless you all!

We celebrated after Christmas with our loved ones. I think this proves that Christmas isn't about one day, but a season, a season of thanksgiving for the greatest gift ever given and for the blessings that flow from above. You are a blssing to so many.

XO,

Sheila

Spesso Dio viene dimenticato..oppure si sussurra che ci venga ad aiutare nel momento del bisogno..però di una cosa sono certa..Egli ci ascolta sempre e non tutti nella vita sono disposti ad ascoltarci ma ci sentono solo..ascoltare è una parola profonda, importante, e va fatta con l'anima...Vieni a trovarmi..condivideremo tante cose insieme..A presto!!
