"Love" Notes

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for all of those who posted their "cling to" scriptures you refer to when life is rough. I had scripture coming in from Facebook friends and emails as well. It was so amazing to me that only 1 or 2 verses were repeated.

The following Sunday, in church, I was unable to sing praises to God. I knew if I opened my mouth the tears would flow! They were already coming at a stream but I know the ocean was right behind them! I stored the words of praise in my heart allowing them to permeate me. I needed God to be all that He is. I started writing the scriptures you sent, down and rummaging through my Bible taking His word in! Oh what a difference! I actually caught myself singing a praise song while I worked in the kitchen one day. No longer tears, but words of praise!

Here is what God laid on my heart...
My friend likes dishes and is very interested in some good 'ole Bybee Pottery (KY) that I have. I knew a pitcher was on her wish list. Now, her mom is also special to me, she reminds me so much of my own mama! She has become our Northern Mamaw. I had bought Mamaw a cookie jar she wanted and plannd to give it to her for Christmas. I wrote the Scriptures you sent me and had others write their own "cling to" verses and filled those puppies up! I had close to 35 pieces of paper not counting the love notes from our Lydia. I am not sure if the scripture was for them or for me but at least they got a nice container out of it! As I was complying, a friend asked me to make a copy for another lady facing a mountain. I left a copy of the scripture with our church secretary to share as needed as well. Looks like a great little ministry had been born from this. Thank you for posting your "cling to" verses and ministering to me and to others who will read these verses!

I fixed a tag for each container that read, "a prescription from the great physician." It most certainly was that for me!

How beautifully God works when we don't even know it. I am glad God is working.
