Father's Day Dream

We moved into our house on Father's Day weekend ......... 

9 years ago......

I wanted it to be a memorable date




It was a dream come true, as I have written about many times before...but, you know what????   it still IS a dream come true....something I prayed for and waited for....for a   v.e.r.y  l.o.n.g      time.........I envisioned a yard and a garden I could plant and landscape the way I wanted it to look......and a house I could coordinate with the colors I chose to live with.......yes...a lot of people take it for granted that they have a house of their own.....

I did not get my own house until I was 50 years old.......between signing the contract on this house and our moving in date, I lost my Mama....but the overall memory of that year is that God does indeed answer prayer..I have chosen to focus on LIFE..sometimes it takes a lot of patience to stay focused on the important things and W.A.I.T....for the other things....if you delight yourself in the Lord, HE WILL give you the desires of your heart.....in HIS timing....

I am everyday grateful.....overflowing thankful.......

and on this Father's Day weekend 9 years ago, my Father gave to me.......ONE FULFILLED DESIRE......a homeplace...a place to call my own....a home where me and Bryan could build our new life together without memories of past failed marriages haunting the rooms...

so yes, dreams do come true.....

Happy Father's Day to the ONE that makes my life worth living......My Father God.........
thank You for all You have done for me.....and for how You love me the way You do....
and for giving to me my husband...my children...and my grandchildren...and my sweet friends.....

You have been good to me...

Some of the evidence of the fruitfulness of this homeplace called Winterpast.....









I am glad you stopped by today.....thank you....

During this Father's Day weekend,
 it is a good time to take time to thank our Heavenly Father for all that He is.....

I hope to see you again soon.....

  3. Amen!! He is the perfect Father in every way. He leads us and guides us and teaches us. He give us what we need and teaches us never to give up on Him for the things we want but to know that He has a perfect plan and time for them. Your story encouraged me about something that I've waited for my whole life.
