Hi friends! Today I’m debuting a little segment called “Special Delivery.” It will complement my weekly Music Monday post, and together; they will serve as spiritual bookends for your work week.
The idea came to me this morning as I was asking God to allow the Holy Spirit to reveal how I might continually spread love using my gifts. I was reminded of a saying that you only hear after someone has passed away.
Give me my flowers while I’m here. ~Unknown Author
This weekly post will serve as your flowers. I encourage you all to scroll down to the comments to shout out someone who has impacted your life this week or over time. How does that benefit you? Well, I get the privilege of praying for them. The joy I feel from offering up the sweet fragrance of prayer to our Father is immeasurable. I hope that you’ll join me in celebrating the people in your lives each Friday (or anytime you encounter this post). Show those you love a little cyberlove that will travel to more than 90 countries via this little blog.
Today, I’d like to shout out the loving staff at Banfield Hospital! These ladies tended to my loyal companion Marleigh last week and gave me the tools to nurse her back to health. Thank you, Ms. Juliet, Mandy, Sabrina, Lauren, Elisa, and Dr. Rybak! Enjoy your flowers and your blessings! May they flow freely from the hands and hearts of everyone you meet. <3
I’m glad for flowers, your friendship and Marley <3
Uh, Marleigh. Auto correct. Honest. 😊
Awww Roo…miss you, girlfriend! I’ve been in the Bat Cave working on lots of project. I only come out periodically. I’ll be blogging again in the true sense really soon. I miss reading everyone’s stuff. 😀 I trust you are well, sister.
And I have missed you too, sister. We’re in the same place in our craft and our careers. And I have the livestock and Gardens to tend now. Still, I often reflect on our many many conversations that continue to inspire me often. Rest assured, we will catch up.
Rest assured, indeed! Enjoy they blessings of God’s gardens here on Earth. May he keep you healthy, safe, and satisfied for all the days of your life, sweet sister. May my prayers for you be a sweet fragrance to Father, and may he hear them and show himself faithful. Remember that he can do all things but fail, and he knows all about you and what you need. May your cup always overflow with love, peace, and joy…in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Amen. And amen. <3
First flowers to you and your beautiful baby!
I’m thankful for living with and helping Susan Bloom who is like a mom to me. Her and her daughter and me and my late mother were the 4 musketeers! I’ve known Sue since I was 15. When she had a stroke nobody wanted to do anything. God helped me decide to leave my great paying government job of 20 years, but wasn’t too happy doing, to be with her. I was terrified, but that was in 2008 and Praise God for He has provided. We may be broke but we have a roof over us and food!
May our benevolent Father bless you, Sue, and all those you meet. He’s a good, good Father, and he hasn’t forgotten about you, Caroline. I pray that you see evidence of that today. Notice his strategy with the people he sends to you as his messengers. Be aware of your many blessings and what he may be protecting you from in a world that’s shrouded in greed. Notice that he’s only letting a sprinkling of his love through that hedge of protection, and that’s to remind you that he’s still on the throne and caring for his Heiress Caroline and her friend Sue. Sending love and hugs to you both…in Jesus’ might name! Amen.
It’s hard to narrow it down to one person. I am grateful for my dad who always encouraged, corrected, and supported me. He taught me about God and had been an example of godliness. Right now he is caring for his mother who is not easy to care for, not grateful for his kindness. He is obeying God but honoring his mother even though it is not easy. Please pray for his health to improve and the strength to endure and the blessing of a season of refreshing.
God is so good, my friend, and he knows YOU by name. As you seek him, he hears your cries for help for yourself, your dad, and your grandmother. Caring for others as they age is necessary, but it’s rarely an easy thing. I pray that you remember that our strength comes from the Lord. Apart from him, we can do nothing of substance. I pray for peace in your spirit and the revelation of truth to share with your dad as he seeks comfort. I pray for healing in his life and for the desires of your heart to be met with a resounding Yes and Amen from the giver of gifts. I thank you for visiting today and affording me the privilege of praying for you and your family. May blessings abound in your life, and may you see evidence of it. In Jesus’ name! Amen.
I love Marleigh!
Awww…thanks, Terri! She’s a good girl.
