The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Bring The Rain

I love the lyrics to this song by MercyMe, no matter what you go through in life, good or bad, God will bring you through it, and I have to remember to draw near to him in the tough times and never turn my back.......

I can count a million times
People asking me how I
Can praise You with all that I've gone through
The question just amazes me
Can circumstances possibly
Change who I forever am in You
Maybe since my life was changed
Long before these rainy days
It's never really ever crossed my mind
To turn my back on you, oh Lord
My only shelter from the storm
But instead I draw closer through these times
So I pray

Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain

I am Yours regardless of
The dark clouds that may loom above
Because You are much greater than my pain
You who made a way for me
By suffering Your destiny
So tell me what's a little rain
So I pray

Holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty

I love this song and don't you love Angie's site- Bring the Rain. I saw you had her 7x7 on your blog-I was going to send you the link because I thought you would love it.
It was so good to see you Saturday and you are just as beautiful outside as you are inside.Sam is so cute and he warmed up the longer he was there didn't he. He and Thomas are sweet together. Thomas is my future grand son-in- law you know. He is my Emma's boyfriend. She went to the Dr for all her 5 year old shots yesterday and the Dr took her blood pressure and said see how high it goes on here cos thats how many boyfriends you will have in your life. She said it went up to 16,he said yes maam you'll have 16 boyfriends she said No I will not my boyfriend Thomas would not like that. She was so serious.
Have a great week!
Love ya, Lorie
