    The smile on my face doesn't mean my life is perfect! It does mean that I do appreciate what I have and what Jehovah Jireh has blessed me with! Selah~Shalom!

    I can testify that this is a fact. My life has been QUITE far from perfect; however, through His eyes and love, I appreciate the good as well as the bad moments in my life; the valleys as well as the mountaintop experiences; the joyful expressions of "Hallelujah's" intermixed with "God, where are you, I'm hurting, and only you can relieve the pain?"

    It goes without saying that the path I walk has had its difficulties and moments of complete and utter despair, but also there have been those times where I was led to drink from the springs and rivers so timely placed to refresh, revive and lift me up!

    There have been moments of complete respite in your arms; and because of this peace and comfort, I can most assuredly say, "I would have it no other way. This is exactly where I want to be, in both the good and bad times, because I know that is my Savior and shepherd who hold me by my hands through it all!"
