And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us,
And establish the work of our hands for us;
Yes, establish the work of our hands.  Psalm 90:17 NKJV

  1. I wish my father had been able to do more of this, bless his soul. He was always so focused on his work and providing for his family…he died of a heart attack at 59 years old. I remember telling my mom I wished he had stopped to “smell the roses” at times…thanks, Lilka!

    1. You are welcome. I can say I am taking time now to cherish the small things in life. Life is so short, I don’t want to have too many regrets about how I spent my time. B Blessed!


    1. That about sums it up Susan! I was outside looking for something else of course and there He was familiar and reassuring. A very comforting answer to a harrowing week. I love how God is good like that 🙂
