Walk by Faith

As a believer, I walk by faith.  However, that's not always easy.  I heard this song on the radio and knew it was one I had to share for Then Sings My Soul Saturday when I link up with Amy of Signs, Miracles and Wonders.

Would I believe you when you say 
Your hand will guide my every way 
Will I receive the words You say 
Every moment of every day 

Well I will walk by faith 
Even when I cannot see 
Well because this broken road 
Prepares Your will for me 

Help me to win my endless fears 
You've been so faithful for all my years 
With the one breath You make me new
Your grace covers all I do 

yeah, yeah , yeah, yeah, ya 

Well I'm broken- but I still see Your face 
Well You've spoken- pouring Your words of grace 

Well hallelujah, hallelu 
(I will walk by faith) 
Well hallelujah, hallelu 
(I will walk by faith) 

I will walk, I will walk, I will walk by faith 
I will, I will, I will walk by faith

Blessings and love,


Everyday Blessings

One thousand gifts and counting ...

Every day on my way to work, I pass by a sign on the side of the road.  I've been curious to stop but it's too early since they don't open until 8 am.

There are roses in a variety of colors.  You can cut them yourself and then wrap them in newspaper to take home.
On Saturday, I made a special trip to stop by and say hello.  I spoke with Evan and he told me they can keep the roses growing and looking so pretty through the summer despite the Arizona heat.  He recommended bringing gloves when I came back to cut my dozen.

As I took a few photos, a farmer was busy working in the field.  He told me he was planting a variety of melons.  He invited me to return later in the season so I could pick my own to buy.

#60  A beautiful hand made card from a special first grade after school student that touched my heart

Our three year old class is learning about how caterpillars transform into butterflies.  How exciting to get to see this occur right before our very eyes.  The kids and teachers are fascinated!

#61  Realizing that I am being transformed into the image of Christ as I abide in Him

The children love it when I take photos of their shoes.  Kambria was very excited to show off her cowboy boots.

#63  Only four more weeks of the school year

# 64 Savoring every moment with the children

#65  Looking forward to teaching Culinary Camp for a two week summer session to first through fourth graders

Carpooling gives me lots of time to get to know Tara.  We've grown to become good friends, even though I'm old enough to be her mother. :)  She's getting married to Josh at the end of July, so I get to hear all the details of the wedding planning.  I have to admit that ...I'm loving it.

Life can be very challenging but God is good.  How thankful I am as I look for the everyday blessings He provides.
