Comfort In God's Word

I am thinking with the wicked weather we have experienced and more on the way  am I never going to enjoy this! Outside our bedroom window is a lilac bush! Will I ever see it bloom? Will butterflies ever come into my yard? Sigh!

"Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place." 2 Corinthians 2:14

This is the view I have had for the past three weeks! April likes to play tricks on us!

"Do not be conformed to this world,but be transformed to the renewal of your mind , that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2

After this past week, filled with much terror and sadness I find comfort in God's Word. Each day I am amazed at what I find hidden in the Scriptures. God has an amazing way of showing us what we need when we ask Him.

I told you April likes to play tricks on us! Nick's former high school XC coach and his wife Stephanie welcomed triplets on April 1st. We saw Coach at the Thornton Invitational track meet yesterday. The wee ones are all doing well,  Aries Sharon, Braelen Morrison and Jordan Michael. Big sister Carolina now has a little sister and two little brothers! They wanted four children and I would say God certainly answered their prayers. everyone who prayed for them please continue to do so. These little ones will need lots of love and care. Plus mom Stephanie is still hospitalized.

"When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish , for joy that a  human being has been born into this world. "  John 16:21

I hope you have enjoyed these shares today and you will stop by Charlotte's blog and join all the wonderful encouraging hearts at Spiritual Sunday!

On a sad note, please pray for the families of five snow boarders killed in an avalanche yesterday in Colorado.

"Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4

How glad I was to get to read your blog today. You were on the list ahead of mine on Charlotte's link up today. We both choose a similar theme for our posts. However, I live in Phoenix so our weather is already warm. But we can spread the aroma of Christ no matter what the weather or where we live.

Blessings and love,

Matthew 5:4 has come to be a very busy verse over the past few days for me. I am grateful for HIS word when my own do not suffice.

Thank you Sandie for your kind post.

I hope the warmer spring like weather comes soon to where you live! We finally got a good week of some sun and now it is colder but at least there isn't any snow on the ground so I can't complain. lol It's April! Don't snow know it's a 4 letter word this time of year!? lol I am in shock over the things that have been happening in our world. It is hard to watch the news. I can't imagine having triplets! I do hope the mom is doing well.

The avalanche that killed the snowboarders was such a tragedy! We all needs the comfort of scripture in these sad times.
