** Through Him, In Him ***

You say 'it's impossible'.
God says 'all things are possible'.
Luke 18:27

God is right! He gives us choices, we can make the best of everything before us, or we may stagnate in the mode of 'it's impossible'. Oh, how disappointed He must be when we 'expect things' rather than to 'create things' for ourselves. We may stumble or have obstacles placed in our paths ... our choice is to make the best out of circumstances.

Happiness comes from within ... something as simple as an ice cream cone can be a joy rather than 'we deserve it'. No one owes us anything in life ... today we should take the time to appreciate the wonders that surround us, with gratitude for them ... a home with a roof, a bed to rest in, a love in our lives that brings us deep joy, food to sustain us ...

Another gals blog made a profound statement ... all the things we clamored for in our younger days, we now have & then some ... & yet we now linger remembering & yearn for those simpler days.

Everything is possible ... believe!
