********Count Our Blessings********

How awesome is our God. He sends us what we need way ahead of us even knowing what is about to cross our path. As Christians we know to be grateful even through our trials, and though it isn't always easy, when we stand steadfast, and sure of our Fathers direction, after the smoke clears, we always seem to find comfort and joy, even in the worst of circumstances.

I have found some special friendships, and so  much unconditional support, from so many of you; each of you truly are a blessing in my life. How wonderful is it, knowing that our family out here is there when ever we need a lift, prayer, or word of encouragement; it's like having a bottomless well of water, always there to refresh us when we're weary.

Yes, our talks with our Father, the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and our studying of His word, brings us strength and wisdom, but sometimes as humans, the kind words and prayers of a  fellow brother or sister, is like a physical hug from our Father, making it tangible, do you know what I mean?

For example, this week was my birthday and it was lovely, but I was so humbled and moved when I received 136 birthday wishes and prayers from my new family around the globe, through a machine I never thought I would figure out how to use. I know that's our Heavenly Father sending me encouragement and strength, I didn't even know I needed.

It has been a rough couple of months, but The Holy Spirit is really working through me again, giving me the concentration, wisdom, and understanding I have been waiting for, in order to start and complete my next book. Though I had already had two started, I was blocked, and then I wrote that poem about the rainbow and Wham, the flood gates opened, a new title and outline where written and we're off.

I share this because I will only be able to write one article a week, while I give my attention and devotion to this new work, but I will be following you all as well, trying to fit everyone in once a week to show my love and gratitude for all your love and support.

I pray for you all, may we all continue to feel our loving Fathers embrace, and always remember that in all things there are true blessings...God Bless Patricia©


  1. Happy Birthday Patricia!! Wow, 136 birthday wishes, you are very popular! Now you have 137!

    Blessings on your new adventure. I am thrilled to hear the Holy Spirit is working through you with concentration, wisdom and understanding.

    I will pray the flood gates stay opened and you are filled with words from our Lord.


  2. I laughed at the line that said....through a machine I never thought I would figure out how to use.....How true is that! lol It's your time now Patricia.....very close now...:o) love ya!

  3. You already know that I love your blog so telling you that I will wait for your posts patiently, no matter how long it takes, will come as no surprise. You just take all the time you need, we will still be here. Have lots of fun with your new book, I'm sure it is just what you need.
    I didn't know you have birthdays, I have them too. How weird is that? I only have them once a year though, how often do you have them? Happy birthday, pretty lady, may you have many, many more and may you have even more birthday wishes than you do already. *******
    God bless you, sent with lots of love, Geoff.
