STORMS COME AND PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED -

Outside my window the clouds are gathering the skies are darkened and a rain storm is coming. Just as in life storms can come frequently; sometimes one on top of another. Some storms are violent and sometimes it may be just a  gentle rain. Storms are like life. When a storm comes into my life I always rely on Prayer. I know that my Heavenly Father hears and answers my prayers. Often times the answers come quickly like the rain and sometimes there is a drought before the answer comes. During this reaching up to Heaven, patience is tested and developed, faith is increased, hope abides. Then gently comes the warmth of the sunshine, the peace of the spirit and the answer. You then feel and know that God loves you, protects you and gives you answers to your prayers.
Today there is a storm going on in my life; but as I listened to this beautiful video I had the peace of the spirit penetrate my thoughts this day. Enjoy!

Hi LeAnn,

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I can see that your heart is breaking . . . it's so hard being a woman and a mom sometimes!

I have been praying for Chris's wife, Diana. She has a mediation hearing coming up soon in her daughter's, "involuntary manslaughter" case. She has waited two long years for justice, or at least a sentencing of the woman who killed Hannah, and it's just not happening. Hopefully this hearing will be bring some resolve, and she will be able to find some peace. Please keep them in your prayers.

Prayer truly is the, "souls sincere desire". I know that we have a loving Father, who, with all the despair and turmoil going on in the world, takes the time to listen to us, and answer our prayers. We know that when the storms of life seem to pour down on us, and it seems like there may be no end to the rain. . . suddenly, there's rainbow.

Thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers.

Love you,
Barb
