While out yesterday, it was recommended that we stop at Charlie’s Bakery…
We sure did enjoy hearing our son-in-law preach this past Sunday…
“Difficulty is the very atmosphere of miracle – it is a miracle in its first stage. If it is to be a great miracle, the condition is not difficulty but impossibility.” ~ (taken from Streams in the Desert)
I’m so very thankful that, no matter how impossible a situation may appear to our human eyes and understanding, we can and must remember to compare the situation to God.
“And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.” Mark 10:27
“Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” II Timothy 2:19
The devotional below, from Spurgeon’s Morning & Evening, reminded me of the above verse I read this morning. As Christian’s, it’s our decision whether or not we will depart from iniquity and thus live a victorious Christian life. Truly, we are as close to God as we want to be.
This little poem was in the girls’ devotional book – “Streams in the Desert” – for yesterday. I thought it was a great reminder!
Overheard in an Orchard
Said the Robin to the Sparrow: “I should really like to know – why these anxious human beings rush about and worry so.”
Said the Sparrow to the Robin: “Friend, I think that it must be – that they have no Heavenly Father such as cares for you and me.”

Fort Smith, Arkansas! After leaving around 4:45 yesterday morning, we called it a day around 8:00 last evening. That’s right, folks – we are heading west and, Lord willing, will arrive sometime this evening.
I’m getting pretty excited, to say the least. 😉 It was Christmas when we last saw our daughter and family and there’s a lot of GRANDbabies – including a new one born in May – that are needing a hug from this Nanna (or is that the other way around?)❤️
Prayers for safety would be greatly appreciated!!
