Learning As We Go...

Aren't you glad that we don't get an agenda in the morning detailing what lies in store for the day?
What mortal dread each morning would hold! 
Instead we can pause beneath gold-refurbished heavens with nothing but wonder to fill our gaze...
And the assurance of loving God's faithfulness

The LORD’S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
            For His compassions never fail.
   They are new every morning;
            Great is Your faithfulness.
      “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul,
            “Therefore I have hope in Him.”
      The LORD is good to those who wait for Him,
            To the person who seeks Him.


We roll with life’s punches
What more can we do
Than learn from the stumbles
Love humbles us through

Oh, sometimes life’s lessons
Are hard, we admit
Not ours to question
What mercy deems fit

But rather, to gather
With blather subdued
A much meeker, kinder
Thankful attitude

Life's thrown some hard knocks lately...not the least of which included yester-evening's crash where hubby totaled an eighteen-wheeler on a side-road of pure ice.
(this he realized when he touched the brakes to slow on a downhill for a stop-sign.)
 (no other vehicle involved and no livestock-loaded trailer!)
He is okay. PTL!

While I take photos of the sunrise an air ambulance passes overhead...


  1. So glad your hubby is OK. Life can change in an instant.

    Have a blessed Christmas! ( Oh, and lovely photos.)

    1. Hi Violet,
      Thank-you so much!
      Wishing you and yours a blessed Christmas and New Year~


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed!
