  1. lovely written. I am understanding this as it was spring here with freshness and renewal then we got a nasty blizzard and a dumping of snow.. every day I look forward to spring and walking forward. things in life are just like that.. sometimes forward with great things ahead and then sometimes set backs. all in all we hold strong as God’s in it all with us. our storms our victories and all the mud in between here’s here !!!

  2. Dear Tasha, I hear your cry! Our days in the Pacific northwest are very similar. Lots of grey days, with bright days of sunshine scattered in between. I am not in a waiting season, but things can still seem dreary at times. I’m sure you’re a wonderful mom and you will arrive at your latest destination soon. I hope your friend will continue to encourage you. It doesn’t sound like she tires easily. Love to you!

  3. God Love never fails. Theses last few days. I not much felt like reading my Bible or saying my prayers. That not like me. We had my Sister’s dog to look after for last few days. We had dogs in the past. But they are lovely. But no more. Don’t get me wrong. My sister’s dog no trouble. It just does not no my house. My day of dogs over. When I had them they were loved and very spoiled. But when you have someone else’s. It strange to your home. You scared of anything happening too it. It not that big a dog. It offal good. My sister kids would cry if anything happened to the dog. Your word today spoke to. It as if God speaking. My Husband said Dawn you not yourself with your sister’s dog out in our house these last few days. Your time with God has gone out the window. As you are nervous round the dog. Even though the dog so so good. Your stressed incase anything happens the dog. Especially when your sister’s kids love the dog so much. The dog don’t know our home. God spoke to me through the title of your word today. God said Dawn my Love keep showing up. Look at you caring for your sister’s dog when she is at work and kids at school. She couldn’t have the heart to put the dog into kennels. You doing that for the love of your sister and her kids. Look at the Love I for you my Child. It is love that is beyond all. It is a love that I even sent my Son to die on Calvary Cross for You. So look at that love you are giving your Sister and her Kids by taking the dog. Showing the dog that love also. Rather than the we pet be put into a cold kennel on his own. Look so lonely. Only get a walk twice a day. Look at all the love the dog will get while with you in your in home. Even though you might not really want the dog there. Look at it this way God showed me. You are doing it on to me. I will bless you for talking the dog rather than it go into a cold kennel for a few days while your sister getting the work done at her home that she needs done. While at work and the kids at school. Sure I love you Dawn and I love you so much. I sent my Son to Calvary for you. That spoke to me. Along with the title of your reading. It is a love that keeps showing up. It taught me to stop grumbling. Be more thank full. Be glad I am able to help my sister out these few days with the dog for her. As God spoke to me through the Holy Spirit. Thank you for todays reading xxx

    • Thanks, Dawn! I’m glad to know it resonated and that the Holy Spirit spoke to you.

  4. I’VE BEEN IN THIS PLACE ALSO SO I UNDERSTAND. IT’S ONE DAY AT A TIME AND I THANK GOD THAT HE IS HERE WITH US.
    I LOVE THAT YOU MENTIONED THE CARDINAL. THIS WAS MY GRANDMOTHER’S FAVORITE BIRD. SHE PASSED AWAY 22 YEARS AGO THIS MONTH AND I MISS HER VERY MUCH. SHE DIED JUST BEFORE MY SON WAS BORN – AND SHE WANTED SO BADLY TO SEE HIM, BUT EVERTYIME I SEE A CARDINAL, IT MAKES ME THINK OF HER AND SMILE. SHE’S IN HEAVEN AND I KNOW THAT SHE WILL SEE MY SON ONE DAY AND SPEND ETERNITY WITH HIM. IN THE MEANTIME, EVERY CARDINAL I SEE REMINDS ME THAT GOD IS WITH ME AND SENDING REMINDERS THAT I AM LOVED BY HIM AND OTHERS, SUCH AS MY GRANDMOTHER, THROUGHOUT MY LIFE. HANG IN THERE SWEET SISTER. YOU ARE SO LOVED AND NEVER ALONE.

  5. Tasha, there is a song by Warren Barfield, Redbird, that I believe you might enjoy. We heard it at one of his concerts. You can find it on youtube. The red cardinal has ever since become my favorite bird. I pray this song and it’s lyrics will bless your soul.

  6. Waiting is one of THE HARDEST things to do, and winter (literal & figurative) can seem never-ending, but God WILL bring the spring in His perfect timing! Thank you for this encouragement today:)

    Blessings,
    M @ In Beautiful Chaos

  7. I too love the cardinal’s bright cheeriness against winter’s frequent drabness. Just today though I spotted crocus blooming next to our garage door and by the back sidewalk some bluets (?). The sleeping things, deep in the dark dirt ARE rising again. I pray, Tasha, the answer to your prayer soon rises out of the darkness of uncertainty. It IS already on its way (Isaiah 65:24).

  8. Tasha,

    We were made for community. God calls us to carry one another’s burdens. It can be the only way we can get through the winter days of our lives. It also gives others joy to help out in any way-even if prayer & encouragement is all we can offer. God tells us to take life one day at a time relying on Him solely. That can seem hard when we are in transition. God’s timing isn’t the same as ours. He knows best when we should move forward. For now let others encourage & pray for you. Helping you out in this time. Just trust God & count on your friends to show up with love in their hearts.

    Blessings 🙂
