Content with little?

 Spring Pea Soup

Seems the last few weeks (OK...months) have been an uphill battle.
Two steps forward, one step back. 
Though there are many days where it's also two steps back...
leaving me right where I started!
Gah!

Wild Salmon with  Smoky Paprika/Chipotle Salt

Good days....
Bad days....
We all have 'em.


 Beau...and his collection

Beau has 4 things he loves...
His bone, his no-stuffing raccoon, his squeaky thing, and his rope.
Satisfied with little.
Why can't I be just like Beau?


 Pete and Sam playing Corn Hole

I confess...I have not been open to whatever the Lord is trying to show me.
I feel beaten up, battered, and bruised.
And not putting up much of a fight against the enemy's onslaughts.


 Mother's Day, 2012

Somethin's gotta give.
Somethin's gotta change.

"No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God." Jesus



Gina & Avery

So...here's to gettin' back on the horse, and putting my hand to the plow once again.
For I can do all things thru Christ who strengthens me.

Bear with me, please...
I think it's gonna be a bumpy ride!

In Christ alone...as always,
Cindy
Pin It!

You are certainly blessed with a lovely family! Golly, that bumpy road needs to settle down for you. I am going to keep you in my prayers.

Can I just say that you are doing way, way better than you think. I mean, your circumstances are not better, but I see you trying. Yes, you fall and may take steps backwards, but you keep getting up! I have a dear friend who went through losing her two sons and her mother all with in one year. Definitely a 'fiery trial' and she always signs her emails with, 'keep walking'. Don't stop in that valley, keep walking. That is my encouragement for you, and I do see you continuing to walk, friend. You are a treasure! A rare gem! I love you!!!

Camille said...

Keep your eyes fixed my friend. The LORD is with you through this valley. HE is Faithful and will give you one step at a time all you need. I am praying for you today...

Love,
Camille

Dear Cindy ~ You are not going this path alone. Not only is God with you every step of the way but you have friends who love you, pray for you and cheer you on. You are an inspiration as you live your life in spite of trials and tribulations.

Below is one of my favorite portions of scripture found in Lamentations 3.

***

It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.

It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.

Love, hugs and prayers ~ FlowerLady

I've been praying for you, dear Cyn. I miss you terribly.

"Those *who Hope* in the LORD
WILL renew their strength,
they WILL soar on wings like eagles;
they WILL run and not grow weary,
they WILL walk and not be faint"

Isaiah 40:31 NIV

Praying Cindy that things get better and that the silver lining appears much sooner than you think. God bless!

Julie said...

I can so relate. After being unemployed for 7 months, I finally found a job, but alas, it's in retail, part time, minimum wage (which doesn't go far here in California). It's a struggle just to keep the lights on and the water running, and I confess that I seem to do an awful lot of complaining when I'm supposed to be praying. I'll pray for you instead of complaining.

God is able and because He is able, you'll get through...life. The other good news is, you've got a reserved seat in the non-smoking section; I'll meet you there!
And, no, you've never made me feel anything other than loved. Bless you!

Camille said...

Just stopping by to let you know I am praying for you tonight my friend. Keep your eyes fixed.

With Love,
Camille
Isaiah 26:3-4

Lana said...

I found your blog through Donna's giveaway. I think I've been going down that bumpy road for a while, too! Prayers for you and I'll be back to visit. :)

Angela said...

Honey. I feel your pain. I am truly fighting the biggest battle of my life right now. And the bitterness I am struggling with is horrible. I never knew I could have these emotions. I keep begging God to help me. And I know He will. We just gotta hold on.

Count it all joy...in Christ alone indeed. You are in my thoughts and prayers, Cindy. Your Blog is a testimony of the beauty around you. Breathe in...breathe out. Blessings to you.
