It's a Rainy Day

Looking out my front door and this is what I see...yukky weather.

What does a girl,
(okay, I confess, an older woman)
do on a cold, rainy day?

Cross stitch of course!
So pleasant to sit here stitching and listening to the rain fall.
Bitsy Baby is curled up on the ottoman in front of me, all snuggled up in my afghan.
It's a cozy, cozy day.

One stitch, two stitch...snip, snip, snip!

I follow Anne Graham Lotz on facebook and look forward each day to enjoying her messages.

With our country and the world in such turmoil, this small message, of few words, comforted my heart.

Anne Graham Lotz
We can trust God with our fears and with our future, with our tears and with our troubles, with our health and with our homes, with our grief and with our guilt.

Trusting God with our fears and our future.  I love that statement.


That's what keeps me going.

That's what keeps me happy.

That's what keeps peace in my heart through the turmoil.

Those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.
Psalm 9:10

Until Next Time
We can trust God for everything.


  1. Amen to the wise words of Anne Graham Lotz. No rain here, bright and sunny, albeit cold. I haven't done cross stitch in a long while...have a beautiful day regardless of the weather, friend.

  2. There's a lady in our SS class who reminds me so much of Ms. Anne...same gray longer hair and such a sweet spirit! Thanks for sharing...I'm following her now, too. The sun is shining here....praise the's a beautiful day!

  3. Thank you for those words. Trust is a good thing to have. I will have to check this lady out on Facebook.

  4. Beautiful words on a rainy, cold day! I'm sure we aren't as cold as you, but the words are comforting. "Be not afraid..." We just need to trust. Wishing you a warm and cozy night!

  5. Hi, Mary, Thank you for visiting my blog. I've added you to my reads! I too really like Anne Graham Lotz. I have several of her books and subscribe to her email devotions. I've done some cross stitching in the past. It is relaxing. Hope you get some sunshine soon! Have a blessed day.
