Counting my blessings

Isn't it funny how we as humans will say, "God, I
pray that you'll give me this if it's your will." And then say we'll be fine if it's not His will, but when we don't get what we want, we pout and whine. I am really bad about doing that, but He is working on me every day. Growing me in His time. We won't be getting our dream spot anytime soon. Our smart guy said it just wouldn't be the smart thing to do. At first I thought, oh no!, I'm going to sulk and pout....wallow in misery for days. That would be my normal response. But it was interesting how God truly gave me a perfect peace. I'm OK!! No pouting, no whining! It's a feeling I can't explain. Maybe He was showing us the awsome possibilities! Who knows?, Maybe
when we do sell our home, something even better
will be out there for us! I have also been in awe
of the beauty in my city yard this spring. I went
outside to sweep the porch one day and this sweet mommy bird almost took my head off! I
had no idea she was there, but knew quickly why
she was there. Right at eye level she had built her
little nest and tucked inside were two tiny eggs.
She's gotten used to us coming and going by now.
She is such a good mommy, she never leaves. And how beautiful she is! My little birder says
she's a dove. All the flowers are coming back to life and "green up" is deffinitely here! I'm thankful for every bloom, every green leaf, every
tiny egg and every special birdie. Most of all, I am
so thankful for my awesome Savior on this Good
Friday. So thankful that there's hope for even me.

I'm sorry it didn't work least yet. You don't ever know what God has planned! I can definitely understand that longing to move to the land, but it not happen! One thing that helped me was praying for God to take the desire away until it was His time. He was faithful in that.
Come by and see the videos I posted. They aren't their typical style of praise dance, but they're really joyful.
