Showers of Mercy

I am humbled by God's mercies

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;

His mercies never come to an end;

they are new every morning;

great is Your faithfulness.

“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,

“therefore I will hope in Him.”
Lamentations 3: 22-23

Rain or Shine
I feel His Presence

As I drive to work each morning
I see open sky
sweeping fields

a city of people in the distance
and I know
He is here

Not only during this week,
but every day
I pray to be still and know
He is here

Thank you to our Sky Watch Friday hosts:

What a calm assurance! He is here. He is alive, in control, and good. He is gracious, kind, loving and merciful He is full of compassion. He is altogether lovely.

Blogging is great. I love how we stumble on people of like minds. Thanks for visiting me at Yellow Shoe Day and for the compliments. Your photos are beautiful also. I have to laugh at your sidebar though. Thanks for naming your dog after me! Ha Ha! (I don't know what my parents were thinking!) I often hear "Misty - that's my cat's name."
Plus my mom says the same thing about lipstick!
It's great to meet you.

It is a wonderful feeling when his peace envelopes us! Love Di ♥

Julie Harward said...

That is all...oh so true...i find him blessing me everyday and sometimes I even call upon him for a "tender mercy" comes. Come say hi :D

Dianne said...

Yes, new every morning--one of my favorite scriptures--

And I love the picture that shows the city of people in the distance. God is there with every one of them.

I always feel such sweet peace when I visit your blog, Maria. Thank you.

Oh, BTW, I decided to add back my comments after rethinking it and some good advice from another. I hope to see you there soon.

Love, D.

How I love this white railing, when I think of the US I think of THIS white railing. I so so love it, love the color combination with the green green grass {especially in Summer}. Beautiful post, sweet Maria. Loved reading and looking about your little corner in the world.
Now about the chalk. So fun! It turned out exactly the way I had in mind.... So sweet of you to let me know. The little book, Dikkie Dik, is a famous one. All the adventures of this red cat are told everyday in Sesame Street. Off course you are way to old for Sesame Street but I thought perhaps it's fun for family or friends with children, should they come visiting you... Anyway, great post and pictures as always.
Have a merry happy happy Easter, sweet Maria, and a wonderful April! xoxoxo

Maria, I totally forgot to wish you the most beautiful weekend ever. Hope it will be filled with a lot of moments of joy, laughs, great ideas, oooh's and aaah's perhaps even a tear every now and then... It will be a fantastic one, most definitely! Being together and sharing all this joy!

Sending many many special Easter wishes your way xoxoxo

Oh and about Miss Piggy, I really do love Miss Piggy!

Maria-you have no idea how your words touched my heart this morning. I didn't even realize it was Thursday (all days blur together right now) and honestly, you couldn't have said anything nicer to me. I'm going to share it with my mom, she will love it.

It still looks as if she will move to the rehab center this afternoon. My husband leaves for home tomorrow, it is hard to let him go. I'm so much braver when he is with me, but he has to get back to work and I need to be here. I'm very ready to get back to blogging...I just need a bit more energy to make my brain work. Thank you so much.



Perfect. Happy Easter to you

Nice skies, Maria. I certainly felt a presence this a.m. after a week of snow: warm snow, a courting pair of ravens, first robin & flicker, bitterroot rosettes bursting from the earth.

Duchess of Tea said...

Darling popped in to wish you and your family a joyous and blessed Easter.

Love & Hugs
