Sunday Wonder

"Water Baby and the Moon"
Jessie Wilcox Smith

* * * * *
So be truly glad.
There is wonderful joy ahead,
Even though you have to endure
Many trials for a little while.
1 Peter 1:6

I dedicate this verse and winsome image to all of my special bloggy friends spread 'cross the globe. I sat down with a teacup and a spate of time recently and commenced to wander and visit and read what you have celebrated, survived, created, and endured whilst I have been away living my daily bread. Much has happened in each and every precious life. I could hardly take it all in -- life vibrates in all corners of the globe. Tears flowed, joyous "hurrahs" rang out, and above all I felt touched by each and every one of you. You are all heros and heroines. Our world shows a cruel face at times, but we can lift our chin a little more firmly when undergirded with the promise that these trials shall only remain for a little while. The sun will shine again, the wind will turn to breeze, and the fragrance of a garden's glorious bloom will envelop us all if we simply gather the treasures in this moment and walk onward away from the trials. Happy journey, sweet ones. I pour forth prayers for you ... I sing with joy to know you all. : )
