Keep Him In Perfect Peace


Sorry I didn't get a post up yesterday...life had other plans.
This past week my younger daughter had a birthday.
I made her a card....and no it's not wintery. 
It is just what seemed to come together.  
Are you like that with things.  
You begin with one idea 
and then when you are finished you think
that is not what I expected it to be?

Sounds like much of life. 
As I think of my daughter becoming an adult.
Trusting the Lord will lead her where He 
wants her to be.
Her course may take some detours and alternate routes.

Proverbs 16:9 
"A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps."

As she trusts in the Lord He will make plain her way.

I also made a cheesecake for her.
She wanted a mint, chocolate swirl one. 
It did crack some...I have to be honest. 
So I made a truffle mix...filled in the holes
and smoothed it over the top.  then I added 
little truffles around the outside. 
Some chocolate sprinkles and pearls 
and it was delicious! 

The light has been a bit brighter lately as the temps 
have dropped some. 
When the temps drop, the skies usually clear.
Occasionally the sun will shine in the windows during a short part of the day.
Mostly it just touches the treetops and gives a golden glow. 
I love how the sun shines through the snow that is built up on the branches.

This is the shed we have and the snow has been 
accumulating quite a bit even with the one melt we had.
It has been a winter for playing in the snow for sure!

As the world swirls about us
trying to just rest in the Lord and enjoy the rhythm of each 
day at home.
Even with the needed grocery shopping and outings for the kids
always coming back to the comfort of home. 

Isaiah 26:3 
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, 
whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee."

Peace...true peace is found in Christ Jesus alone.

Love and Prayers,

It is so comforting to have a home! It was nice to see what some of your week was like. Happy birthday to your daughter! The cake looked very rich and delectable! Thank you for the Bible verse. The Lord does keep us in perfect peace if we stay our thoughts on Him! :)

Beautiful wintry photos Jennifer! That cheesecake sounds wonderful. Our daughter moved out in August, and this will be our first Christmas without her (sniffle). She is doing well though and we talk to her often. We're hoping to see her in the Spring. For that occasion, I will have to make her favourite - everything!
