Planting

Funny how some things happen, I wrote a letter today, I've waited a long time to contact the person I was writing to.  About 34 years.  I won't go into details but I wrote to the person that brought me the gospel in South West Texas in 1980.  I wanted to tell her the rest of the story, how my life and her planting turned out.  I wanted to tell her how Good The Lord has been to me.  

I wrote the letter before I made my card for this weeks Word Art Wednesday  Challenge and the beautiful new verse from Jeremiah:



I was  at this friends house out in the middle of nowhere also called Sanderson TX and I felt the Lord tell me I needed to pray.  I did and in that time He told me it was time to go home to CT.  I did not want to go to put it mildly.  I understood even then sometimes you just had to obey the voice of God whether you liked it or not. 

The Lord gave me that verse in Jeremiah as a promise and he included one more verse, the one right before it: 

 Jeremiah 17:7 says, 
"Blessed is the man that trusteh in the LORD; and whose hope the LORD is". 

I went back kicking and screaming and in my heart clutching that promise that if I would trust Him it would be good, very good.  I did trust him and He did keep his promise.  My life has been richly blessed in so many. many ways

He also promised one day I would go back.  The I thought it would be two years not decades!
But His way has worked so much blessing in my life, I can't even begin to list it all.

I made my card for  my friend , typed a long letter and mailed it off.



I will wait to hear back and if I do I will send her my WAW challenge card:


I colored this with my Spectrum Noirs, quite happy with them!


If I can leave a thought with you today: 
Trust God, he knows what he is doing, walk in His ways and you will never be lost.

Thanks for stopping by,
