Good Saturday afternoon.
It's been so long since I've posted here at Seashells and Lavender.
So many changes going on around us.

Some of us have experienced so much in our lives over this past issues, job situations, selling our homes, buying new ones, losing loved ones, welcoming new ones into our lives, weddings, graduations, etc.
Good news, and bad news.

More fierce weather threatens thousands of communities.
Situations bringing us to our knees.

The one "constant" in our lives is HOPE.
What are we hoping for?

Hope.....fervent expectation.
My "hope" is that I can accept what His plan is for my life.
My "plan" is to enjoy life to the fullest. Realize that each day is a gift....not to be wasted on "what if", and "if only".  When you hear...."I never promised you a rose garden"....plant some of your own!!!  Don't wait for life to come to you.....reach out and grab it for yourself!!!!  
The song at church says...."You are the Potter, I am the clay" He creates us to live, love and be loved.....but He's not going to do all the work for us!  
Yes....there are bumps in the road....some are BIG bumps....but keep going! It might take some time to get over those mounds, but with grace and can be done.
I am NOT trying to make light of what is going on with the storms from the hurricane....or any other storm in life. I am trying to encourage you. There is "hope".
Hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Love to you.
