Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness, while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.

  1. I always smile when I see you have posted more Grace notes! It is always like a real visit and you sharing what's on your heart <3
    I can imagine the cups of tea before us and His presence...
    Granddaughter's prayers are VERY powerful...
    I was visiting a friend and her little grandgirls, the age of yours, prayed their daddy would get work near home as he has been working out of town for a few years now. Someone from His church heard the girls prayer and offered their daddy a job at his construction site as a supervisor! The kids tell everyone how God answered their prayers... such joy!
    I know God will be right at your side all the way through surgery... may His peace give you rest and healing.
    I LOVE your finger puppets~ delightful! is a wonderful ministry.
    Your song put me to joyous worship and now I will head out to dance with my sweet goaties and count snowflakes.

  2. With tear-filled eyes I read this. I take Susan's hand and yours to make a tea party of three in His presence and I pray

    Dear Holy One of God, the only One who can make us holy. We praise and magnify your Holy Name. We are broken, but we KNOW you can make us whole. You do it each and every moment so...Trusting You, we commend Andrea Dawn to the medical people You have placed in her community for her and the nursing staff who will see to her daily living needs until she can go home. May they have supernatural knowing of her needs. At the same time, You know who is there who needs her as much as she needs the surgery so I ask You to prepare their hearts as they are about to meet God through Andrea Dawn's hospital stay. May worry be nil, may hope sore, may healing be swift and pain controllable, and if it is not too much to ask, may Andrea Dawn be able to see the moon at night and the birds in the day. I guess she needs a window bed for that, but You know best. I envision skipping and gardening on her knees and walks at full speed by late spring--all for Your glory. Amen and amen!

    Singing worship songs (no goats involved),

  3. Thank you Susan and Dawn, what a sweet tea party! Thank you for your prayers and I hope to be up and posting again soon.
    Until then, dear friends,
    Andrea Dawn

  4. okay, Andrea Dawn, never have I had a more clear winner for favorite thank you on a list – the warm wishes and hugs – that was a really good second place, because I heart warm wishes and hugs, and we can't really live without them. But by far number one on the list – those adorable hand puppets – I'm sorry – finger puppets - heart them! and I'm smiling – and you did that, so thank you my friend. God bless you and keep you.


Thanks for stopping by . . . appreciate your comments.
