Tiny miracles . . .



Our Ward was given the challenge this year by our Bishopric to read the Book of Mormon again. I have been doing mine through the site, Read The Scripures which sends a daily portion of them through to my e-mail. I had fallen somewhat behind, what with having to go away for that week and then all that has been happening over the past few days. This morning I got back into it. Once you have finished your daily reading, you click on the link at the bottom which takes you back to the site and registers your reading for the day. There is always a little quote there to further inspire you. This is the quote that met me today.

"Remember that faith and obedience are still the answers, even when things go wrong, perhaps especially when things go wrong."
--Elder David E Sorensen, "Faith Is the Answer", May 2005 Ensign pg. 72

Could there be any further evidence of God's hands working in my life? I think not. This was an answer to me. God is good, He cares, He knows me intimately and He knows all that is happening to me. Some good will come from all of this . . . He is guiding us and carrying us through this dark tunnel that we are having to make our way through at the present . . . and if we are diligent and remain faithful . . . His light will be waiting for us at the end. There will be blessings for us.

God lives. He is our Heavenly Father. He loves us. He cares and He is faithful and true.

I just had to share this with you.

You are God's beautiful creation inside and out, Marie! The quote and your thoughts echo exactly what my prayer was for you and Todd yesterday. Stay encouraged, God is doing good works through you even during this terribly diifficult stretch. Sending love and prayers from Indiana. :) xoxo, Rachel

Oh Marie. I was away and only just got caught up. I'm so sorry to hear about your dear little Jess. God has something extra good in store for you because He knows how much you've cried lately. Be in a state of constant positive expectation. He loves you so much.

There will be blessings for us... You are blessed, and you will be blessed more, Dear Marie! Thinking of you extra much as your journey some difficult and very busy days just now. Don't forget--LOVE YOU SO MUCH, dear friend! :o) ((BIG HUGS))

Sweet Marie
It is in the dark times that we really get to see God's love toward us. Be encouraged. You will look back on this time and see God's hand.
Hugs, Rhondi

God does, indeed live. He's holding you there in the palm of His hand, just like He promised and He won't let you go anywhere without Him.

Oh Marie...what perfect timing God has. Sometimes it doesn't feel like it, but the words you read today is proof.

You mentioned keeping in touch when you commented on my blog. I absolutely do want to keep in touch. Here's my email, just in case you've misplaced it:
CactusLovr@aol.com.

Love to you and Todd:
