This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: 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. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Faith Lift Friday

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Traditional Gaelic Blessing

On the road this weekend. Visit Sheryl at Taking the Challenge for more uplifting thoughts for your weekend.

This one of my favorite Irish blessings!!

Wanted to thank you for stopping by and your prayers for my grandson, Carson, and my daughter Nicole. Carson is home and doing good and will be going back to school tomorrow with restrictions. Nicole delivered Caramia on Saturday as planned and they will be going home today.

Again, thanks for your prayers.

Hi Julie~~
Just stopping by to say hi. I love this blessing and your picture. I haven't been on-line as much this month--sometimes life requires other things from us, huh? Miss you--

I like the blessing.
I know about blogging breaks. ;) (You know that!!) I've wondered about you and now that I'm finally catching back up with my reading, I'm glad to see this message that you are taking a break. You are continually in my thoughts. I pray you are doing well, and continuing to heal in every way.
