|From my mother's album -- my 11th birthday --|
We'd gotten together a few times during that time frame -- but living far apart in different states -- I'd moved several times. I'd keep up with her through her parents for several years -- but as our parents grew older and our children kept us busier, our lives had both picked up a fast pace and we'd lost touch.
Debby Miles Smith was my Maid of Honor at our wedding. Even as teen agers -- I always respected her genuine and tender heart. She has always been beautiful inside and out. She was a true spirit -- and had a sense of humor that always could see the funny side of things.
(I remember how I could get so tickled at her during church -- oops).
Notice that same beautiful smile through all these years.
I acknowledge these "God stops" because I see what HE is doing for me each and every day.
"Loving Kindness" is a phrase that is attributed to HIM -- it's a way that I describe HIS favor right now. The Peace that HE is giving day after day -- even today when I was dreading another A & C treatment (although I knew it would be my final one -- I still got a knot in my stomach thinking about what would follow).
