Quotes to Ponder #2 - Thankfulness for Joy




A Sweet Good Morning to you!

Hope you are having a restful day.

 Started this early this morn,
but didn't get to finish until now.
It is 4:07 to be exact....better late
than never, as they say!!

Here's a new quote to ponder.

"Thankfulness takes the sting 
out of Adversity"
You give God your Thanks
 (regardless of your feelings) 
and God will give you Joy
(regardless of your circumstances)

by Sara Young (from her
book, "Jesus Calling".


I can tell you from experience that
 is so true....that is why He tells us
to give Thanks in all circumstances,
According to 1 Thessalonians 5:18


I believe, He said that more for our 
benefit than His......  It is the path
 to Joy and peace for the Christian.


If you have never tried it,  by all
means do....I think you will be 
pleasantly surprised at the outcome.

Happy Pondering to You........
until.... we meet again!!  lol


Restful Sunday Blessings,

Hi, Nellie.
Your words are so true! As I was reading the message on the napkin, "The joy of Christmas is Jesus," the Holy Spirit prompted my heart to think, "The joy of this entire life is Jesus!" I am so thankful to our Savior LORD for His abundant Love that permeates everything we think, do, and say! It all comes down to putting our full trust in Him for our life's journey through this fallen world which will one day lead us to be in His glory forever! "What a day that will be when our Jesus we shall see, when we look upon His face and feel His redeeming grace." I'll never forget singing this song since I was a young child in church! Indeed a ponder to always think about! Love you all, Susan

Happy Sunday Morning to You Sweet Friends, And Happy Spring!! She has finally officially arrived. I decided to try a new meme today,  it is called  "Shadow Shot Sunday". I am going to combine it with my Sunday verse   for  the day  which I haven't done for  awhile.  Thought it would  work great  together. I am linking up to the "Hey Harriet blog" So.....if you want to check out all the other shadow shots,   just click here. The header photo is of my bathroom  window,  very early  in the morning,  just as day is breaking. You will see the sun coming up more and more. I only wish the camera could have captured the way the light was dancing on the window pane, truly a beauty to behold! I took these at different stages as you can probably tell from the amount of light coming in the window, and now onto the valance. It was truly fun and fascinating to watch! Remember.......................... He who dwells in the shelter of th

Psalm 148:3 NIV   Greetings Sweet Friends, Hope you week has been a good one.

Pictures today are from our house this Fall 2020. So on with my Thankfuls...... #1 Thankful for a nice time with our  Son  and Lil darling,  He was sweet to bring dinner for all of us, and then we played some wii and a card game.  A Fun Surprise..... especially
