{winter in indiana}

I thought since we are having such an early winter here in Indiana

and we are not so happy about it...

I would post some photos of the beauty of it all.

Yep, trying to focus on the positive, please join me!

Here is a photo of the Market Street Inn in Jeffersonville, Indiana

One of my favorite places to visit when I was a child is Metamora, Indiana. This is a photo of the Grist Mill from the
  Whitewater Canal State Historic Site.

You can always find our beautiful state bird perched on a winter branch. 

 The iconic Indiana University red campus clock towers.

If you haven't visited Christmas at the Zoo, you need to! 

This time of year is a wonderful time to take a carriage ride 
around downtown Indianapolis! 

Don't forget the hot chocolate! 

This is Winter in Indiana in a snap shot from Parke County. 

I sure feel better now! Hope you do to!

{feeling HIS grace}

I basically was going to write this same post but found it in my archives, seems to be something that happens a lot. I am still just so grateful that His Grace and Mercy pulls me out of my muck!

as i shared with you yesterday, i have been going through some things. a season of something?

i found myself depressed and stressed to the max!

i have been crying out to GOD for HIS presence to be felt in my life, in my home.

praying for HIS peace and precious comfort to surround me!

i know, you are all so disappointed to learn that i am not perfect! LOL!
nope! just a normal every day momma with a messy house and a million loads of laundry to do.
my husband and i fight sometimes and there are even times i just feel like i want to RUN AWAY!

then there is always that calm peaceful day that comes around, the day where HIS mercy surrounds me and i can feel HIS presence like a warm hug embracing my life! the day that all the hurt, anger and stress seem to just melt away. the day when HE has brought me to some realization that HE's got it and everything is going to be okay.

the day it is all restored and i am reminded of how much HE loves me and how much HE has done for me.

that day was today....

this scripture hit me like a ton of bricks and will forever hold a special place in the forefront of my mind and heart. i will never forget this again...

Remembrance of Grace

7 I will make known the Lord's faithful love
[and] the Lord's praiseworthy acts,
because of all the Lord has done for us-
even the many good things
[He has done] for the house of Israel
and has done for them based on His compassion
and the abundance of His faithful love.
8 He said, "They are indeed My people,
children who will not be disloyal,"
and He became their Savior.
9 In all their suffering, He suffered,
and the Angel of His Presence saved them.
He redeemed them
because of His love and compassion;
He lifted them up and carried them
all the days of the past.
Isaiah 63
