God's way isn't necessarily ours, but His way is so much better!

1 Thessalonians 5:18
give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

I do give thanks to you Lord!  Your way is so much better than our little minds are able to comprehend or understand.  Thank you!  Thank you!

I am going to admit to something right off this morning.  One day several years ago, Kenny came in with a bright idea to purchase a home in Colorado.  I was dead set against this idea.  I argued we don't need a home anywhere else.  We don't and I won't enjoy this at all.  No.  Well, he went against my pleas without me even setting eyes on it and bought it.  Needless to say, I was very upset and angry!  How could he?  Well, I was wrong and he was right!  Okay Kenny I admit it in public!  I am so glad he went against my stubborn streak and bought this house.  But it's not the house that he purchased that God uses with me it's God's creation. Words simply can't express the gift of God that I've received from this place and the people that He brought into my life from this out of the box idea!  Thank you Lord for being so much bigger than I can ever comprehend!

I am so much closer to God through this out of the box place, against my grain purchase.  I notice things I never took time to notice in Louisiana such as birds, sounds, and nature of all types.  I was given the gift of time to explore and take an adventure like no other.  I set out days in this place not  sure where I'm going or what I will experience other than one thing is certain God shows up in every turn of the head or blink of the eye and it is spiritual.  Now even when I am in my home in Louisiana He is bigger here too.  I see Him even more  with the turn of my head or blink of the eye everywhere, because of creation.

I was suppose to experience this little slice of heaven this week again.  Yet, I couldn't take the uneasiness in my spirit away that I wasn't suppose to go.  I tried oh how I tried, but I couldn't do it.  So I cancelled the trip.  Well, Kenny has been sick all week and needed a little help.  He is fine, yet he needed me to be here this week and not in Colorado.  So I am glad that I listened to the Holy Spirit nudges to stay here with Kenny in Louisiana and to give thanks in all circumstances!  

Thank you Lord for being so much more than I will ever understand and for loving me beyond words.  I treasure the moments that without a doubt You show up and share with me a little piece of You.  I love you more and more with each turn of my head or blink of my eyes.  Amen

Sweet blessings,

Sorry that Kenny has been sick, but thankful that you were able to be with him. I know how much your place in CO means to you and how much you will enjoy it once he feels better.
