Is everyone getting ready for a big Memorial Day weekend?? How has the weather been in your area! I have sure been praying for everyone in our Country and everywhere that has had disaster to hit with all the tornadoes and flooding and all the other disasters around the globe. Please keep them all in your prayers. There is so much that is needed right now in those areas.
We love our animals and two weeks ago we had our Sheltie, Teddy Bear, to pass away. He was 17 years "young". There is a picture of him on the left side of my blog. I have been devastated and cried my eyes out for two weeks now. He was such a part of our family. He had gotten so old and we knew it was going to happen but he was so sweet - just old....like we are all getting.....anyway, I miss him and so does my husband. He has tried to be strong for me but he gets those big tears in his eyes everytime we talk about him. If any of you have lost a pet that you love, then you know what we are talking about.
I made up a little cross stitch design for you, called...."Be Happy". I think the reason for this is because I feel we need to find happiness wherever we are. Even if it for the moment....Be Happy, smile at someone. You might just make their day and yours. We can CHOOSE to Be Happy or we can CHOOSE to be unhappy. The choice is ours. The Lord didn't promise us everything would be great in this life but He did promise us He would be there with us no matter what we have to go through. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and will bring you back from captivity. ” Jeremiah 29: 11-13 THANK YOU LORD!!! This day I choose to be happy, not because of circumstances but because of YOU!!!!
I hope you like the chart...please enjoy it and share it with you friends...just don't sell it or kit it please.
Have a blessed rest of your week and a very safe Memorial Weekend....
Come back again soon! Blessings to all....
