First of all I'm sharing a card I made for this season. I am still finding it hard to make a card that I like, it used to be so easy, but I'm struggling lately.
I used a leaf-cling from Hero Arts and added some gold glitter. I used distress markers.
Well, I have to tell you what happened with the onions.
I was a bit discouraged this week with quite a lot of things. I'm sure you have the same now and again. So I went to sit at the Lord's feet and started... well... emptying my heart, complaining a bit, but just being open. Before I finished I heard myself saying, and I need onions for the meal tonight and I don't have any - and I'm not going to the shops to get them either!!! I was just frustrated!
Anyway, life goes on and around six o'clock I see my son coming up the drive, he gets out of his car with a bag of onions in his hand. Oh, I said, how did you know I needed onions?? Very surprised he looked at me and said, I didn't know you needed onions, but I was in the shop and saw that if you bought two bags, you got one free, so I thought of you!!!!
I was so, so amazed at the Grace of God - can you imagine. He hears us before we even utter a word! He knows our thoughts, but mercifully, he also knows our hearts, that life can be demanding and He chooses just to bless us, to encourage and really say : I knew you needed this today! Don't you just love His Heart! I know I do.
I had to think of this Psalm in the Bible:
You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
Have a lovely weekend!
