Hello dear friends! Happy Sunday to you!
You’ll find me on the porch this morning, taking a little quiet time before I figure out what the meals for the day should be. I’m going to be searching for lighter dishes for the summer months. I’m ready for some new recipes to put together with the fresh fruits and vegetables of the season. I have come to the realization, a month away from vacation, that perhaps strawberry shortcake should not be eaten for lunch;)
My post today includes a tribute. I may not have offered this personal message here if it weren’t for this sweet young lady. But just for her today, I am. Please excuse me if your background is different. I hope you won’t mind. Her life was just taken away, but her music will live on. I wonder when evil will finally learn? Love always wins!
When I hear bad news and feel the darkness of the world trying to push on my shoulders, or squeeze at my heart, I often sit for a moment and pull up this video. I literally seek it out for praise's sake. I have always been in awe of her voice, and her unashamed worship. I’ll share with you today, in honor of her, that the peace, love, and happiness I have found in my heart comes from only one source. From Christ alone. Without His love for me, and knowing I am never alone, I could never muster the calmness I share here. For me, without Him, there would be no light. The peace I try to describe everyday, is easy to write about, yet hard to adequately describe. I suppose that is why it is called the peace that surpasses all understanding. I hope you enjoy the video below, sang by beautiful, Christina Grimmie.
