Morning Nutrients

"Grow strong in the Light of My Presence.
As My Face shines upon you,
 you receive nutrients that enhance your growth in grace ...
I designed you to commune with Me face to Face
and this interaction strengthens your soul."
(Jesus Calling)

Reflecting on the past week, and thanking Him for His gifts ...

Early morning rays of sun on a farm place in Kansas
Cousins who put us up for night after my uncle's funeral
The peace of countryside

An uncle who is free from the sufferings of Parkinsons
At long last, at Home where he has longed to be
Comfort and love shared with my aunt and her family

Family, and loved ones
Sweet connections, even at a time of loss

Life with the one I love
Sharing a devo outing together each week
Peace that surrounded us at Lake Cunningham

A daughter and her two little ones here
Five-month-old granddaughter in my arms
And three-year-old grandson picking veggies from our garden

Two more grandsons joining us
Blessed by three three-year-old grandsons

Continuing to read through His Words, now in Jeremiah ...
"Plow up the hard ground of your hearts ... " (Jeremiah 4:3b)
"But blessed are those who trust in the Lord ... " (Jeremiah 17:7a)

Quiet moments to listen
His call to "wait here for a while. I have much to tell you." (Jesus Calling)
His Words, full of rich nutrients
