Quote to Ponder






Happy Sunday
Sweet Friends,


Here is a quote to Ponder today!



To be grateful is to recognize the 
love of God
 in everything He has given us.....
and He has given us everything.
Every breathe we draw is a gift of 
His love, every moment of 
existence a gift of grace.

by Thomas Merton



Just in case you are wondering who
Thomas Merton is....

Hi Sue.....
Happy Sunday to you. Thanks for coming over to visit. Been nice hearing from you so much.

I thought it was a beautiful quote as well. So funny Phil. 4:6 and 7 are my life verses,
as I used to be a horrible worrier when I was new in the faith, but the Lord used that
verse to really transform my life. Not that I never ever worry, but it sure is nothing like
it used to be, thank heavens I can rest in the peace that passes all understanding most of
the time.

Hope you have a lovely week hon,
Blessings,
Nellie

One of the old hymns I remember singing from a child is "Spirit of the Living GOD, fall fresh on me." Another song was about the "Holy Spirit Breathe on Me/" Every breathe we take is a gift from GOD. What a blessing it is from GOD to breath without labor! There are so many things He blesses us through His Love, mercy and grace! I'm so overjoyed with His promise.
"GOD will supply all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:19) Breathing is one of these riches! Love you, Susan
