White Wednesday Kate's year in reflection

Hello Girlies

I am linking up to Kathleen's White Wednesday Celebration with

a year in reflection of whites...


sometimes the start

has a surprise finish....





we grow as the unexpected

happens and we yield

sometimes without a fight...





each step a teachable moment...





each stumbling stone

is a choice of a

building block...





for in every sorrow

there is found sweetness of joy...







looking for the gift

in each day...







savoring each precious moment

wishing time could stand still




yet moving forward

with hope and a renewed

strength for what lies ahead...





trusting, believing....





with an abundance of grace & love

that is found through the hearts of others







that there will be much rejoicing

this season...





Happy White Wednesday

from my heart to yours...

Such beautiful whites and even prettier words to reflect on. I can relate to the words written on the journal today......I guess sometimes you just feel that way about yourself and what's going on in your life.

I'm hoping you're feeling well enough and have the time to really enjoy the holiday season this year Kate.

Best wishes,

Kathleen
