Making Beauty from Ashes of the Past

Happiness is when your daughter invites you to have brunch with her! Yes, that’s what I’m doing later this morning. Looking at the bright side of this storm cloud studded sky.

Spending time with my family always lifts my spirits and reminds me of how richly God has blessed my life over the years. From growing up as a lonely only child with siblings living so far away, God made something beautiful from the ashes of the past. I’m now happily reunited with my brother and sister, and have been a wife, mother of eight, grandmother of MANY, and now a great grandmother as well. God has a plan for everyone. Never give up believing.

Lifting my cup of tea and wishing you all a time to look back and see how God has changed many rocky paths you once trod.

I'm a mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and best of all a child of God. The beautiful colors in God's world lift my spirits and give me inspiration. Every morning is a new beginning, and a blessed gift from God! I enjoy a cup of tea each morning and give thanks to my Savior for life eternal.
