It's a beautiful cold crisp sunshiny day here in the Ozarks. It's a day to stoke the fire or turn on some heat .. just to take that little bit of coolness out of the air.
It's Sunday .. another beautiful day to Serve our Lord Jesus and to give him all the praise and glory
for the blessings that have been bestowed to us. I am so thankful and so grateful for all the Lord has done for me and my family. We have walked some precarious paths and wondered where they would lead and why in the world our Lord would take us down them ..but in the end each path has had it's reasons, each path has had it's lessons, each path has had it's way of growing us and bending us in new directions which we never would have chosen for ourselves. Many times we grow comfortable and complacent in our lives and God finds ways to grow us in the direction of his will for our lives. Sometimes the growth is painful other times it's uncomfortable .. and sometimes we have fun when we are growing and don't even know that's what he is accomplishing in us until one day we look back and realize how much change has taken place in our Hearts and Minds ..
this is a picture I took a few weeks back of an old dliapadated house that sits on a hill overlooking a beautiful green valley... it made me think ... a house... for God.... is a house that will stand forever and weather the storms with him by it's side ...
