AWESOME WORKS OF GOD

Below is a wonderful poem AUDREY HEPBURN wrote when asked to share her 'beauty tips.'
It was read at her funeral years later.
For attractive lips , speak words of kindness..
For lovely eyes , seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure , share your food with the hungry .
For beautiful hair , let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
For poise , walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone...
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great are HIS mercy and loving kindness toward those who reverently and worshipfully fear HIM.
psalm 103:11
My love,

Picture taken minutes after a heavy rain storm passed thru our town.
Looking at this magnificent sky reminded me, yet once again, that no matter how
DARK and OMINOUS things seem,
there is ALWAYS a bright light just beyond.

Wow, those clouds are awesome! And by this I mean awe inspiring! We had furious storms this weekend too, and the sky was truly beautiful afterward with a lovely red sunset.
