All I need is you to have your way...

Finnaly I surrender, by Misty Edwards

I am bushed and exhausted. But it feels like a good kind of tired. We have had our home full to the brim with family and friends all through the holidays. There is something in me that loves to provide a home that is welcoming and inviting to all we know and love. My mother seems to have passed down that gift of hospitality that she so lovingly shared. Or maybe it is my precious Italian heritage, probably a combo of both. I just love people and love to gift to them my home, my time, my energy, and my food. But boy am I pooped! Now my heart is crying out to spend time with the one I love, and the one I am most eager to please. Time to be alone with the one who when He calls my name, my heart melts and I want to be very still and listen closely and hear what He has to say to me.

What will this year hold? What is the plan Lord? Help me to line up with You and all Your ways. Lead me beside Your still waters. I am listening, my beloved.

Son 1:2-4 Let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth; for Your love is better than wine. For Your ointments have a lovely fragrance; Your name is as oil poured out; therefore the virgins love You. Draw me, we will run after You. The King has brought me into his chambers; we will be glad and rejoice in You, we will remember Your love more than wine; the upright love You.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Yes, the paintings in the banner are my watercolors.

I loved the verse you had from Song of Songs. One of my favorite books about the lover of my soul.

I will come back and check out your previous posts.

Always good to meet a new friend.

I'm certainly with you in this. A wonderful start to the New Year.
I do like the firework photos. You have captured them very well.
Thanks for your ocmments. Our street is not a typical street, we do have a community of Christians living here.

Your garden looks frozen over.

I'm visiting the blogs of people that posted on my sight and inviting them to sign up for a give-away I am having. No gimicks - just fun. It's my way of celebrating one year of blogging.


P.S. Adorable grandbaby you got there.

We did not go to Kiftsgate,it was not open and also we are National Trust members so get into theirs free but would not at Kiftsgate. We reckon we see so many beautiful gardens with the NT that we did not think it worth going back and also pay.
That was an easy plane trip compared with one we took in early 90's. I guess it will get posted somewhere.
I'm sure you had a wonderful time at yur churches together meeting.
