Some Encouraging Thoughts

If the Lord be with us, we have no cause of fear. His eye is upon us, His arm over us, His ear open to our prayer--His grace sufficient, His promises unchangeable.
{ John Newton }

"But God is the God of the waves and the billows, and they are still His when they come over us; and again and again we have proved that the overwhelming thing does not overwhelm. Once more by His interposition deliverance came. We were cast down, but not destroyed."
{ Amy Carmichael }

"I will lift up my eyes to the hills—from whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.
The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in
from this time forth, and even forevermore."
{ Psalms 121 }

May you be blessed with a lovely afternoon!

  8. Hi, Livvy!

    Your photography is beautiful! I especially like the one of you with your horse in the sidebar. What kind of camera do you have? I'm researching SLRs, trying to decide on one to buy. So far, I like the Nikon D90 best.

    Y'all need to come up and visit again. We so enjoyed seeing you last summer! Tell your whole family "hi" from me.

  14. Hello Livvy. Your blog is beautiful. It's wonderful to know teenagers happy with their homes and families like you. We also know that the Lord has done. A hug from a sister who lives in the Amazon jungle, Brasil. In Christ. Glória.
