His Mercy

"His Mercies Are New Every Morning"

A Thought

In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

Faith

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

TRUST and OBEY!

 ( I love this picture of Sarah and me) :)

I was writing to a cyber friend tonight about parenting children with trauma backgrounds and the thought came to mind... TRUST comes before true OBEDIENCE....
I was thinking about the hymn "Trust and Obey".  We TRUST the Lord before we OBEY Him.
For our children, they have had to learn to trust us, before they were willing to truly obey us.
We must Work on building TRUST!  Obedience is the fruit of trust. :)  And both are the result of LOVE!

Yeah, you hit on it...my hubby says too "they need to heal first" and that would come under the 'trust' heading.

Too sad! I'm leaving now.
