Alone on the beach...
" little impression our sorrow makes upon other men has often struck me,
 so that it is our Father's discipline for us personally;
instead of thinking this sad,
let me rather be pleased and glad
that my Father takes this special,
peculiar interest in me by myself."
 (from Andrew Bonar's Diary)

  1. Hi Stefanie! This is my first time stopping by your blog and I have enjoyed looking at your pictures! Your family seems wonderful! And I have never heard the quote above. That is something to think about. Thanks for linking up to NOBH! I'm glad I stopped by...and I'm following now. :)

  2. Beautiful! Perfectly fits what's been going on in my mind today. Put this way, adversity seems so handle-able. Thank you for sharing this!

  3. Thank you all! This quote really stood out to me in my reading last week and I wanted to share it. I'm glad it was a blessing to others too.

  4. Wonderful quote! Thank you for sharing!

  5. "so that it is our Father's discipline for us personally;"...will ponder this thought...thank you for sharing.

  6. Thank you for the quote - I've never heard it before - but am touched by it. What a better perspective it has given me for my feeling of loneliness in the midst of a crowd. God's gift... I need to ponder on that and take it to heart.

  7. Oh, what a beautiful quote; I have to remember this. It is true, we often find ourselves lonely, but we should take those moments to embrace it and be filled with His spirit.

    Thank you for sharing your grateful heart with us this week.

    Love & peace,

  8. I'm glad this was a blessing to others too. The Lord has given me a lot of lonely evenings which I try to fill with profitable reading....then I love to share it on here.

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
