Time Marches On

Yes, I know that it is still a few hours away from being March on our calendars, but time does seem to be March'ing away from me more so lately than in previous weeks. In case you have not noticed, I do not seem to blog or visit so much over the weekend. The truth is, I am rather busy as most of you are as well. Finding time to write a decent sentence is rather challenging at that time.

So first out of the gate this morning is Good Morning to all and Welcome to my new friends who signed the Wall of the Beautiful and Chic. I'm so glad that you signed onto following my journey through life. Stay with me, it's about to become rather interesting. 
I spoke with my Beautiful Baby Girl over the weekend and she told me that the baby's head is down and in the birthing position---- and she has been spring cleaning..... Our precious new Baby is not due for three more weeks. However,  she had Baby Love two weeks early and this Baby is acting as though she / he will not be out done. So I may be taking off to Michigan just any day now. YEAHHHH!!

I really need to focus on packing my own suitcase to get ready for the trip. It's hard though, because I'm rather distracted these days by the the Holy Spirit's nudging in my soul. I feel as if I'm racing against the clock and I don't know "what" I'm racing "with" or "toward". We are all given the same measure of 24 hours a day, but somehow, it just does not seem like enough time for whatever it is that I'm getting ready for. I'm excited about the new Baby and yet, I find myself looking beyond the birth day trying to see into the gray area of life. His Grace is sufficient for the step we are on and His Light is enough for what we need to know in our moment of time. I know and yet, I'm wrestling within my own spirit for "something". Jesus said in John 10:10 that the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full, abounding life. The journal of life by our calendar has yet to be penned with the days events. So I am expecting and looking forward to writing of His Wondrous and breathtaking works in all of our lives.
With the birth of the new Baby will come new changes. My little family is growing and being so far from my Baby Girl and her children, well, lets just say, I'm praying to be able to see them more and not less. I'm also praying under the direction of the Holy Spirit about unnamed situations that are stirring. I say unnamed because I'm not really sure "why" I'm supposed to be praying as I have been. It seems strange and yet, in all honesty, I do know. I'm searching for answers. I'm looking for the plans as promised in Jeremiah 29:11, 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.

I have a strong sense that life is indeed about to become very interesting. Changes are coming. Hope will be realized and life is about to turn in a direction that I never dared to dream or hope for (Eph. 3:20). I am not afraid, for Daddy said 365 times throughout His Word, "be not afraid". 365 times He said this- 365 days on our calendar. Coincidence? Hardly. In the years of walking with Him, I have always found Him to be faithful and True. If He promised it, then He will deliver. So regardless of what is going on in the unseen, I can not wait to meet our newest Baby and be able to hug and kiss on Baby Love again! I can not wait to see my beautiful Daughter and handsome Son in law blossom into even more loving parents than they already are. They have been absolutely amazing with Baby Love and have so much more love to give. This new Baby will lack for nothing and for that, I am grateful. I'm thankful that Daddy has blessed them greatly in many way's. Mostly I'm thankful that Daddy has blessed them with beautiful babies and hearts overflowing with love. Change is good and Daddy is awesome and Faithful! His timing is always perfect for our life's events and changes.

  6. Hi Ellen,
    I love this post and I hope you get to spend time with your daughter and the baby....
    And also, I love how you did your bedroom...I'm expecting movie stars to walk in! It's amazing!!

    Also, I know that you don't know me well, but I am wondering if I can ask you to pray for me...I really need it about something personal....and I see that you are a sister in the Lord.

  7. beautiful clocks to bring in the new month- lovely...


  8. Ok Sista... Here is your word(s) for today.
    From God:::
    Follow me one step at a time.. that is all I require of you.. in fact, that is the only way to move through this space/time world. You see huge mountains looming, and you start to wondering how your going to scale those heights. Meanwhile, because you are not looking where your going , you stumble on the easy path where I am leading you now. As I help you get back on your feet, you tell Me how worried you are about the cliffs up ahead, But you dont know what will happen today.. much less tomorrow. Our path may take a abrupt turn, leading you away from those mountains, There may be an easier way up the mountains than is visible from this distance. If I do lead you up the cliffs, I will equip you thoroughly for that strenuous climb. I will even give My angels charge over you, to preserve you in all your ways..
    Keep your mind on the present journey... enjoying my presence..Walk by faith, not by sight, trusting Me to open up the way before you..
    Psalm 18:29/Ps 91:11~12/2 Cor, 5:7

    My devotional for today ,
    now yours,
    via Jesus calling by Sarah Young..
    Hope that helped..
    Love you forever my friend.. xoxoxo
