French Lavender Lemonade

Good morning from my sunny, cozy, little living room.  Baby Ady is taking her morning nap and I have a few minutes to blog.

Isn't life interesting?  Just like with nature, God gave us seasons in our lives...and I am so thankful for that in so many ways.

One of my favorite verses is found hidden in the book of Nahum..."The lord is GOOD, a STRONG HOLD in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in HIM."  Nahum 1:7

You don't have to look very far to see that our world is in serious trouble.  Lives are in shambles.  People are hurting deeply and life can seem dark and dreary, but as sure as the sun is bound to shine again, our lives, too can shine even more brightly despite circumstances in resting in the fact that we have a GOD who is guaranteed to be our STRONG HOLD.

I hope that today you will retreat to HIM who holds this fragile world in His hands.  He is trustworthy and the safest place to hide while the storms of life blow over.
