New Mercies

Trusted friends spilled love over and around each other.  Stories of love failed, stumbling and burnt  was met with cool flowing reminders that His love renews.  Sometimes life is so difficult that the morning loses it's purpose.  No longer is it an opportunity to start over and take courage. It becomes a time to gird, to build walls, to dread.  Thank God for trusted friends who remind you of His faithfulness in the midst of difficulty.  

Thank you God for:
-new mercies every morning
-floating plastic boats in the kitchen sink
-cool dawn breezes
-a quiet early morning house
-friends who care enough to challenge, share and defend
-time at home with the "little people"

-peanut butter ice-cream (away from home of course)
-God's way of speaking to me loud and clear

God's loyal love couldn't have run out, 

   his merciful love couldn't have dried up.

They're created new every morning. 

   How great your faithfulness!

I'm sticking with God (I say it over and over). 

   He's all I've got left.  Lamentations 3:22-24 The Message
