I'm starting to think about how I want to decorate the house, so I was looking in my photos to see how I did it last year and decided I would post last year's decorations and feast. It feels good to be inspired to blog and decorate and get back to my life even though I feel like laying down and bawling.
I have been so sad with the loss of my dear mother and father, so I am happy to have our St. Patty feast to look forward to.
"You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The Lord your God will bless you in the land He has given you." Deuteronomy 28:6-8

"Peace. Beautiful peace. That's what I am feeling right now. After several weeks of going at break-neck speed and experiencing deep sorrow, life is happy and calm. I thank God for this peace. It's Friday night, it's beautiful out and we have no plans. Wine glass in hand, slippers on...auhhhh"
Now, just four days later, I am told my my father is dying. I am losing my precious Daddy. Oh my heart hurts.
I had trouble sleeping as I kept thinking that he was all alone. What if he didn't die peacefully. I needed to see him.
"Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life." John 5:24
