This Story

This Story belongs to a lonely man whose life and belongings holds secrets but some things are revealed in the things he left behind. His wife died and he was lonely, his son deserted him leaving him alone in a nursing home to look out the window and wonder where life had taken him. he wasn't in his own home anymore. this delicate pink bowl handpainted with white flowers was kept on a shelf . His house was a quaint old fashioned hardwood floor one with rounded kitchen cupboards surrounding a single sink. Double doors led to a small living space with windows all around that you could look out to see fruit trees and rose bushes and a gingerbread looking garage. It was so cute. I felt sorry for this man for some reason because he died alone after i moved into his house.

You Have Run Into MyArms

O my child, you have thought in your heart that you would run from Me. But lo, I am everywhere before you, and you have only run into My arms. For I care for you---yes, I think upon you constantly, and I seek to do you good.

You fear My rod of correction, but it is written, is is the love of God that causes men to repent. Take My love, and in the taking, your heart shall be so warmed and made tender, and at the same time encouraged and made strong, that you will not need the rod, nor anticipate My displeasure.

For if it be so that human love covers a multitude of sins how much more is it true of the divine love of God the Father! Knowing deep love for you, your own heart shall no longer condemn you. My mercies are everlasting, and My kindness abundant.

My grace extendeth unto the least of My children, and My tenderness shall make you strong. I go before you daily to prepare you way, and you shall be accompanied by My goodness and My mercy.

An excerpt from the book 'Come away my beloved' by frances j roberts

A very sweet but sad story. That house sounds just like my Mom's little house with the round cabinets by the kitchen sink. Happy Pink Saturday. Thanks so much for dropping by. ~ Lynn

Such a wonderful story. Your pink photographs are gorgeous. I am giving away some artwork today on my blog, so please stop by and take some home. I love the pink curtains, they remind me of my bedroom when I was a girl with my pink princess telephone and lots of dreams.

Happy Pink Saturday.
