Gift from God

The last year for me has been one of major challenges ,with that always comes the doubts the questions and the soul searching. Hopefully with all of this, one comes out a wiser stronger and better person. For me that would be the hope that I would learn to take things a little more as they come and just know and trust my God given intuition . The last few days have been ones of peace for me as I feel a little stronger in knowing that what  ever the answers have been, I trust they are the right ones for me and have come from a higher source . My sister leads her day with the thought  that when she lays  her head down on the pillow at night, she rest in the assurance that her actions of the day have been motivated by  what  will bring her peace that night. I have been trying to follower her lead and it seems to be working. Let go let god !! Thanks Lorrie for your wise example. You are a gift from God too!!

Everyday I have to let God take care of it in the end. I certainly cannot do this life all on my own.With that I also have peace when my head hits the pillow every night.. I am so glad you are just letting God take it all. Sounds like you are growing in faith. Hugs Julie, Mica

Julie, this is a truly beautiful post. I love the saying to go to sleep to. My mum read a book Called Good intentions by dr Dwyer? Think I have the name right?
Feeling that many of us are starting to feel this deeply.
I have your painting here with me today, collected it from the post office and couldn't wait to get home and open the parcel.
I am over joyed with it, so much more beautiful for real and have placed it on my hall way wall so everyone can see it when they come in. Thank you! You are so very gifted!

HUGE HUG!

Julie
