My Cup Overflows

Although life is not perfect, it is good.

Although sadness has left scars, life is happy.

Life is surprising even within the realm of the ordinary.

Each step leads to another. Days become years.                                                                       Road-3-Country-Side

The path is worn with decisions made.

But, You alone know the number of my days. Each one is recorded in Your book.

You knew me as I was being formed in my mother’s womb…

and You will know me on that day, when I finally come home.

5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. 6Surely goodness and loving kindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.  Psalm 23


Today I have so much to be thankful for:

* being up when the stars still light the morning sky

* birthday parties

* moist chocolate cake

* hanging out with friends

* beautiful countryside

* country back roads

* deer in the field

* husband that goes out of his way to help me

* loving my husband and him loving me

* son that received an acceptance notice from one of the colleges of his choice! So happy for him.

* warm house on chilly days

* finishing staining my daughter’s desk, fixing up her room

* plenty of everything that I truly need

Thank you, Lord.

  1. Knowing that all the days ordained for me were written in God’s book before one of them came to be gives me the requisite courage to trust in and surrender to God’s will for my life. Good words, much appreciated!

  2. Sometimes the twists in life and God’s plans are not what I envisioned for my life but I’m always reminded of the people God as placed in my life. It seems that in some of the worst chapters of my life God has brought the best people into my life.
