And the lord said to the bondman, Go out into the ways and fences and compel to come in, that my house may be filled. Luke 14:23 The Darby Translation

Welcome to my blog. I am new to this game but when I saw “Thankful Thursday” I said now there is something I can write about. So here I am with keyboard in hand (or under my hands) pondering what do I type when I have so much to be thankful for.
Yesterday was not a well behaved day for me. Have you ever had those days when you just wake up with your emotions bending in the wrong direction? You know what I mean, someone (like a husband) hurt your feelings the night before and you’ll be darn if you are going to let them off the hook that easily. Now at my age one should know the only person that will truly suffer these bended emotions is me. After hours of the self pity act of “well he owes me an apology”, the phone rings. Guess what they are talking, laughing just like their normal selves. As I said the only person bothered is ME!
Then I am reminded of an Abba Father waiting on me. Even though I’ve messed up (sinned against Him) He welcomes my call. He reminds me of His unconditional love. He smoothes my ruffled emotions, calms my troubled soul and put things back into prospective for me. Today I am thankful that we serve a God of mercy and grace. I am thankful that He loves us unconditionally.
“The LORD appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.” Jeremiah 31:3
Who am I? I am a princess. For my Father is the King of kings and Lord of lords. This statement is of great importance because I was not always a princess. Once I was simply a lost soul dwelling in a pit. Then one day all things in my life changed. My Father, God reached down and lifted me from the pit giving me new life. In Him, I have found peace, love and hope. This is my greatest role by far for in it I find joy to be all the titles that follow me. Finish reading about me in my pages listed above.
