i won!!!!

i won blog candy on Jennie's blog and i am so HAPPY!!!! It is the first time ever that i win something on some body's blog! Happy day for me! Thank you Jennie, very much appreciated.
So happy to end this terrible month on a high note, September is very difficult for me, it is the month my Mom passed away, also her birthday and my Parents wedding anniversary. I miss my Mom and Dad terribly, somehow i don't think you ever get over the death of your parents, you just learn to live around it.

But, there is also something beautiful in September, it is my son's birthday month, so in the middle of all the tears, there is also joy and happiness, happy birthday my Nicky-Picks, i love you with all my heart!! (He is the pretty one top left corner)

I made this canvas a while back, for my bedroom, cause i love to look at my family before i fall asleep, then i pray for each and everyone. When i finished the canvas, i asked the Lord to give me a suitable verse from the Bible for my family, and this is where i opened the Bible,(Isaiah 49) isn't it amazing??? This is my favourite verse for the last couple of months, because this is God's Word for my family!
at the end of this lovely and sad Spring month of September, i leave you with this from God's Word:

Isaiah 54:14
You shall establish yourself in righteousness (rightness, in conformity with God's Will and order) you shall be far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, for you shall not fear, and from terror, for it shall not come near you.
Behold, they may gather together and stir up strife, but it is not from Me. Whoever stirs up strife against you shall fall and surrender to you

Now, you tell me, who cannot live a victorious life with this promise from God, if you are suffering, this is your Word, to stand up and live in victory!!!

from your fellow soldier

Congrats on the blog candy! KWYM, my Mom has been gone for almost six years. I still miss her sooo. But I know she is in a better place and not burdened by the pain and sickness that followed her in life here. Beautiful verse. God Bless.
