Grace was Everything

Sandra Brooks McCravy:

Grace…my favorite word. <3

Dad stared out at the snow and talked. He seemed more to be talking to himself.  “Grace was everything.”  There was a little bit of a pause and then he continued. He never looked at me and the story rolled out like it played itself constantly through his head every day. “I wanted to be rich. I was on my way to being a successful pastor and writer. I didn’t want to get married. Then I saw your mother. I was at a business meeting with a television agent. There was a live band playing in the restaurant where we were meeting. She was singing. She was in a band. She was from a wealthy family, but she was wild and crazy. Heaven knows what she saw in me, but I could not refuse her. Somehow, all my plans went out the window. She wanted nothing more than a big…

Psalm 57:7…My heart is full of love for God

I love you, Lord.

 

Through loss and grief, you can still have peace and hope in your heart.  God is with you through all the storms of life.  Know you are never alone.  As I have said before, God has you and the people you love in the palm of His mighty Hand.  This life is so short compared to our eternity with a loving Father.  Hold onto that hope.

You have brothers and sisters everywhere who are with you in Spirit.

God bless you and give you peace,

Sandra  <3

Our Prayers Have Been Heard

Originally posted on Redbird's Roost:

Although it sometimes seems to us
our prayers have not been heard,
God always knows our every need
without a single word,
And He will not forsake us,
even though the way is steep,
For always He is near us,
a tender watch to keep. . .
And in good time He’ll answer us,
and in His love He’ll send
Greater things than we have asked
and blessings without end.

This is My Prayer…(Celine Dion and Josh Groban)

If you haven’t noticed, the past few days I have posted videos and music that have greatly impacted my life.  One of the songs was performed at the funeral of someone I dearly loved.  I found this video on YouTube, and I am trying to keep my composure as I type.  Oh, how this video touched my soul.

Lord God, I am so thankful for talented musicians such as the ones I have posted over the past few days.  I am also grateful for the amazing composers who created these works of art.  Since we are a musical family, I could go on and on about music…so, you may be seeing more for a time.

As I pray that our Father will give me the grace I need to face each day, I pray for blessings and peace to each of you.

God Bless You…<3
