Three Cheers For Laura-Mae!!

I'm Posting!!
So...I guess I won't close this blog, although I was quite tempted to.
I can see by the comments left that I would be missed, thank you so much!
I stopped blogging because I have been going through a period of discouragment, extreme discouragement.
So bad that when I think of the past months...from September til now, I can hardly remember events that happened or regular seasonal activities that I didn't participate in.
So weird!
Anywho...I am feeling somewhat better, am looking forward more than ever to spring and I do know there is a light at the end of my tunnel.
It seems that every corner I turn there is something to remind me that God is in Control and things will work out according to His plan.
For my birthday, I couldn't believe the strong theme that ran throughout the birthday cards and presents I received.
Jeremiah 29: 11 " For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.'
Proverbs 3: 5, 6 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.'
Those verses appeared on nearly every card, bookmark, gift etc that I recieved, I couldn't beleive it!
Both verses that I have known since childhood, but now they mean more to me than ever before.
I was rather convicted as well about certain sins,
I always expect the best of things, assuming that God is going to just give me every little desire of my heart, but then never take into account certain things in my life that need to go!
I have really been made aware of the uttermost importance for daily prayer and have made a point of setting aside time each day to talk with the Lord!
So that is just a little blurb on whats been happening with me this past while, thanks for being patient with me and I look forward to blogging more in the near future!Laura

Dear Laura-Mae..It HAS been a discouraging winter indeed! That is why it is so nice to have the Pilgrim Pals hanging around together and encouraging and praying for each other.
I know that everything will be going better for you, especially with those promises you have been getting from the Lord.
May the Lord bless you
dear Larua-Mae!!..Love Terry

Dear Laura-Mae,
what a glorious carrier of good news and a witness of God's power you are.
We so often seem to take the good times for granted, at least so do I, and then through trials and heavy burdens we are blessed by the knowledge that He has been there by our side all the time.
I praise God for you and ask him to bless you richly for the years to come.
Yours Felisol

Oh, Laura Mae! So good to see you again! I went through an AWFUl winter last year where I felt very withdrawn and the whole neighborhood missed me and wondered where I disappeared to...thank God I struggled successfully through this winter.

Happy belated Birthday! When was it?!

Love and Prayers,
