Romans 8:28 – And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them are the called according to His purpose.

Twice in the past month, I have had to give up something I deeply wanted or have been denied something I was looking forward to.   I have been very disappointed, not in the way of anger but in the way of discouragement.
After searching for comfort in the Scriptures this evening, I came to Romans 8:28.  
… His purpose…   
As a believer I have the assurance and hope that God’s purpose is for the good of His followers.  His purpose may not be easy or in line with our plans or wants, but is worked out so that the things that happen to us (in this case my disappointments) are working out for our good, so much so that is surpasses what we had in mind.  I say this because I have looked back over other disappointments in my life and realized that what happened in place of them has always been better than what I had planned.
So if you have experienced some disappointment as I have recently, take comfort in knowing something better is on its way.
I’m thankful for lessons learned.
Until next time…
God bless and keep you,
PS… how are you dealing with the time change?

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
