In the Morning -- Unfailing Love

As the morning progressed, I had occasion to reflect on a few of the more recent tangible evidences of God's unfailing love...many of them from the hands of friends this past week.  The blue bottle, for instance.  It was in a bag of goodies chosen just for me by a friend.  She assured me she hadn't consumed its contents--but KNEW that I have been unsuccessful in my personal search for them.
The pictures came carefully padded in an envelop from Kansas yesterday.  They are pictures of my paternal grandparents.  These precious people and their prayers played an incredible role in my development.  I owe so much to them.

The leaf was one of the first red leaves to cross my path this autumn.  I have a hard time not picking up and trying to preserve EVERY beautiful leaf that falls!  My Bible is open to one of many Psalms that express my emotions and praise FAR better than I can! 

I am SO blessed!
"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you."  
Psalm 143:8


  1. Love these sweet surprises, but most of all, I love the verse! Beautiful start to this morning.

  2. How dear these pictures are and will
    be to you I'm sure. I also pick up
    all the beautiful leaves I find while
    walking. This is one of my very, very
    favorite verses. In fact, it will
    soon be on a cross stitch project I
    am working on.
    Hope your day is blessed and beautiful...

  3. Sandy, I hope you'll "show off" your cross stitch project!

  4. This post made my day and reminds me to look for my own things to see as evidence of God's unfailing love for me.

  5. Hi Rebecca---thanks for visiting me. I need to be more timely in my posting... The days just seem to get away from me somehow. Yes, I am employed and it was a "God Thing"!! I never even applied for just came to me and I have landed in a most comfortable place with wonderful coworkers..I am so thankful! All along the way, He kept me in a peaceful place. Truly, it is a most blessed place to be when we are in His care! Anyway, again, I am so glad to have discovered you. By the way, I live in Prairie Village, Kansas, which is a suburb of Kansas City. Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. What a nice way to spend a morning..reflecting upon the love of the Lord and friends.

  9. Oh, yaaaa! I was able to get here finally!
    Beautiful post! Beautiful keepsakes! Beautiful Blessings! I do cherish God's reminders throughout my day of His Abundant, Unfailing Love.

    Thanks for your visits to me and for your kindness always.
    Love and Prayers,
