The Blessing of a New Look
I have a new look. Susie, wonderfully talented, creative, Susie at Bluebird Blogs designed this beautiful new blog for me. I am delighted with it. She did such a wonderful job. It suits me perfectly.

I was thinking this morning about how blessed I am to be able to do something like this. It is totally unnecessaary. It is just something I wanted - something that was a "wish". There are so many who have such great needs. In fact, we have great needs - physical needs. Yet the Lord has blessed me with something that is simply a special gift from His heart to mine.

Each time I look at the lovely design Susie created, I think of the heart of God that delights to give us lovely surprises. Surely I could have gotten along with the old design I had. It was perfectly fine. Yet He did this for me.

He does it so often. Blessing upon blessing; things I don't deserve. I look around my home and realize how very much He cares for me. I think about the "inner blessings" - the peace, the joy, the hope - and thank Him for the priceless treasure He has placed within my heart. I look at my family - my parents who we are so blessed to have in our lives, in their eighties and still doing so well; my children and my grandchildren - the love and unity we have as a family who know and love the Lord. The blessing I have received blogging - the precious people He has placed in my life and in my heart - the friendship, the sharing, the prayers, the encouragement, the laughter; giving me an outlet for my desire to write and adding so much more. I am so blessed.

Thank You Lord for loving me so much You even bless me with the little things that I desire to have. Thank You for my beautfiul new design. You are such a loving, caring Father.

Blessings,
Linda

I really like your new look, I hope to change mine after I have been doing this for awhile. Yes, you are so blessed to have all of your family christians, I am still standing on the word in faith for some of mine, and to have your parents, double blessings. God is GOOD!

Wow, this is a beautiful new look! I haven't been visiting too much the last couple of days. I love the embroidery - I used to do that by the many hours. It was my creative outlet and really relaxed me. Then my eyes and my hands couldn't take it any longer - sad!

I loved yesterday's post - that was some great insight you got from looking at the frosty grass and trees. What a weird bunch of weather you're getting down there!

It's beautiful, Linda! So warm and welcoming! :-)

And you are so right about all the ways God blesses us, and we're so undeserving. I know I don't thank Him enough for all my blessings.

Stay warm and have a great weekend!
