Being appreciative and joyful!

Good Evening, or whatever is the best greeting to you, in your part of the world!

It has been quite the tidbitz time! Certain things we thought were finally happening, did NOT. Back to bittidz square one again! That being said, we have reflected and truly, it is the 'best laid plans of mice and men.'

I believe (and so does Alan) that very definitely, 'Our Father knows what is best for us.' That includes each and every one of us. Alan and I literally live one day at a time and do our best to 'keep things simple.' At the end of each day, we give Him a hearty thanks for our Blessings.

We are very thankful and even in the case where we had thought certain Prayers were answered; but were not; we realize that He has a much better plan for us. We have actually had 'doors closed' and yet we are grateful, because who knows what might have occured, if we had our Prayers answered at the time. Hence, we are looking forward to Him providing an awesome solution and opening other doors. It would appear that this is happening; albeit at a slow bittid pace. But then again, everything has to be in His Timing, in Accordance with His Will, Purpose, and Plan. The time lapse, has helped us see a few things more clearly; eventhough we are not totally sure what it is that He wants us to do. Save that, we Trust Him to Provide.

In the meantime, Alan and I have enjoyed our home and our thriving garden and appreciating our neighbours. We have 'brainstormed' a number of ideas and with certain tid things not happening, has given room to other options that we are looking to Him and Asking Him to assist us with. This tidbit 'pause' or 'slow down' has been good; and our Faith is a reassuring comfort, that we are on the 'right track' albeit, we are still facing a number of 'trials and tribulations.' (We could probably write a best seller! LOL!).

No complaints though. We are happy with each other and what we have! We know that somewhere, somehow, sometime, things will be better! We are JOYFUL and EXPECTING His Help and Direction.

Hope this is a bit of an uplift for those of you, who have been experiencing letdowns, disappointments, delays, etc. Just keep on trekking in Faith and Trust, knowing that He will Provide for you. It may not be in the way you thought; BUT, it is BETTER!!!!!

Tidbit - He has a good plan for each and every one of us. If something does not work out, be appreciative that He has something better in mind for you.

Bittid - Continue to 'Praise Him in All Things', regardless of your circumstances.

The above picture is of my Dad's thermometer. It is pretty accurate. We took this photo last week and it is another warm one today. The flowers and the veggies love that sunshine!

Peace and God Bless.
