In God's heart I am accepted!


Hey you,

the one wondering if you’re enough,

if you’d be loved if anyone really knew you—

turn your heart this way for a moment,

then lean in and listen close…

Acceptance?

You’ve got it.



You don’t have to look any further

than the hands of the One who made you,

the heart of the One who loves you.



You’re welcomed, held,

cherished just as you are

and encouraged to grow

into all you’ll become.



So hold your heart and head high;

look the world in the eyes and say…

“I’m His. I’m loved.

I’m already accepted today.”



–excerpt from God’s Heart for You, Embracing Your True Worth as a Woman by Holley Gerth
It is a joy to open my email each and every day and find a devotion from Holly. They speak to my heart in ways that nothing else can and that alone is a God thing.

Praying that each and every one of you will come to know Him if you don't already. There is nothing else like it in the world. He loves each and every one of us as if there were only one of us.


A few more photos of my hydrangeas and mini boo pumpkins for you this Saturday evening. It has been so cold here today in Michigan , but next week we get warmth back. YAY! I am so glad because there are a few things we need to get done around the old homestead before winter sets in that have been put off for far too long.  :)

Blessed weekend to each and every one of you~

...A-men sista!!

it is all to easy to sell ourselves short and think ~ why bother?!
but i have come to know that there will ALWAYS be those that are more lovely, more talented, with more monies to spend...etc...etc...
--->BUT<---
i also know that each and every one of us are unique and each of us has a gift to share that only we have been given to share!!
when our time on this earth is up, our individual gifts leave with us too!
so instead of asking ~ "what's in your wallet?"
(ha!)
i'd rather be asked ~ "how did you use your gift today?"

love ya' girlie! shine on and sparkle:)

God has been reaching out to me in many ways, too lately. I am listening to the audio book 1000 Gifts. I hope to be able to share some of what I am learning soon. It has a very powerful message. Thank you for spreading the Good News. I love you, too.
