Five Minute Friday: Park

I am joining in on Five Minute Friday again this week.
The prompt for writing this week is the word PARK.

Go!

On Friday's we have prayer service from 8p-12a.  It has been such a blessing to get together with my brothers and sisters for uninterrupted prayer time.

I live in NYC...and therefore we park our car on the street.  By the time we get home it is about 1:30am and have found a parking spot at times at almost 4:00 in the morning!

My husband has to be at work at 6:00am and my toddler wakes up at about 7.

Is it worth it?  Yes!

Am I tired on Saturday's? Yes!

But prayer is so very important.

It is the source of my strength and the beautiful time spent in prayer in the presence of God is so worth it!

Stop.

Flive Minute Friday: Mail

My daughter recently started receiving mail. Lovely and encouraging notes from her older cousin (they are about 4 years apart).  I think it is so thoughtful that she takes the time to write to my little one and decorate the letters and envelopes with such love.

Now, the circle of writers has widened.  The children in my church, who are of writing age,  correspond with one another.  They write darling heart-felt notes and leave them for one another in the church "mailboxes".

God has such lovely ways to let us know He is thinking of us...
Seeing this God inspired gesture in action is incredibly rewarding to this mama's heart.

Seeing the kindness and love they are extending towards my little one is overwhelming...

Do a kind gesture for someone today...it may have an eternal impact on them.

God bless you all.

It is Over...

Summer that is! With fall right at my doorstep and the weather quickly descending here in NYC, fall is evident.

The days are a bit greyed and proving to be shorter and I love it.  I love the crisp air and look forward to the foliage changing to the beautiful Autumn hues.

I enjoy seeing the work of my Lord's hands. So much thought...so much detail in every aspect of it all.  Such beauty...if you care to really see.

So, enjoy!  Enjoy all that fall has to offer.  Sip the pumpkin spice lattes (which my sister says are delicious...haven't tried one myself but sure will!), light a pumpkin cinnamon candle (my favorite is the BBW one), and sit back and remember the Lord's kindness and goodness.  Remember that His mercies are new every morning.  What a comfort to know that He is always with us no matter the season of the year and whatever season of our life we may find ourelves in. His love is there...available to us ALL!

Remember to take hold of Jesus' perfect love today!

In Christ,
