And what a relief to see your friendly smile. It is like seeing the face of God! Genesis 33:10 NLT I thought the picture to the left was perfect to go along with this scripture. I love this scripture because it’s how I feel every time I get to see my daughter’s beautiful face or even talk to her on the phone, although when I get to see her it’s under much better circumstances than when Jacob said these words to his brother Esau.
I spent this past Memorial Weekend 2015 with my daughter. I can hardly put into words how rejuvenating the time was…beautiful weather, springtime flowers, humming birds, good coffee, bible reading, and quality time with my daughter. Oh, how I’d love more times like this with my baby girl. Nothing compares to the loyalty and genuineness of family. Just being present in an environment like this makes a person thrive spiritually. No matter what we’ve both grown through together, we both want what’s best for each other and want each other to succeed in life. Her presence in my life is such a blessing. I get so filled with Holy Spirit Joy with our visits. Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him. Psalms 127:3 NLT
I know at some point in the next few weeks I’m going start missing the friendly family environment that so fills me up with joy. Feelings of lonesomeness will hit and I’ll have to be double diligent at encouraging myself with God’s word, my blessing journal, riding my horse, and fellowshipping with a few gal pals. I’m so looking forward to my next visit with her!!!
Below are some pictures I took of Springtime 2015.
I will bless and praise the Lord with my whole heart! Let all His works throughout the earth, wherever His dominion stretches, let everything bless the Lord! Psalm 103:22 TPT
