All....

all the injustice in the world
all the wrongdoing
all the unfairness
all the tearing down instead
of building up 
all the cruelty
all the madness
Many worry about our world today,
many are crushed in spirit.
Don't worry, dear hearts.
This is God's world.
He is taking care of it.
Listen.
He's near.
 
My granddaughter,
Francesca.
 

 
 
I love you.

I needed to read this Sheri. Thanks for sharing this post. I was just talking about this with my mama today. She was saying how God is always there for us. Francesca is adorable. Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday season!

Sheri, That sweet baby girl. I too worry about the world that our little ones will have to live in. Hopefully it will get better. If we could get honest trustworthy men in office and in business, it sure would help. So we have to do our best for everyone. I love that wee stocking. I think you are addicted to love, grandmother. ...have you decided on a name you will be call by your grandchildren? :) Blessings to you for a sweet weekend, love you, xoxo, Susie

Thank you, dear Sheri, for the reminder that God is in control. Your granddaughter, Francesca, is beautiful, my friend. A newborn reminds me there is always hope. Thank you for a beautiful post. ♥

YOU are right. This is God's world, we are His children. The world's spirit is being taken over by an ill spirit, and we must watch ourselves and watch for one another. I too am tired of hearing of all the injustice, but listening to this music (my absolute favorite) reminds me that gentleness, compassion and empathy are what Jesus demonstrated to a dying world. WE ARE HIS!

I think this is the best rendition of this song I've heard. I now have to go wipe the tears from my eyes. Why does love and beauty do this to me?

Mildred said...

I agree with all others, that was just beautiful and so needed. Sometimes we forget who is in control and let random thoughts guide us in the wrong direction.

Thank you so much, I will re-read this many times.

Everything bad gets forgotten when you contemplate this adorable baby girl. Don't worry about the world, God has created it and He 'll take care of it, one way or another. We have to trust Him and His makings.

Your granddaughter is beautiful and I know you are having such a wonderful time with her. Give her lots of hugs and kisses.

Dear Sheri...What a cherished post. Little Princess Francesca is as beautiful as a newborn angel! Oh, those eyes! That little face! What a darling. And the video with music was so soul-stirring. All those little faces touch my heart. I am going to be a Grammie again in March and the baby will be a little girl! Thrilled. Take care and thank you for all your visits to my blog. Oh! And I loved your ride around town to look at the Christmas signs. Lovely. Susan

Debby said...

OMG your granddaughter is precious.

I was just telling my husband how I am concerned for my children, their children and so on- because of what is happening in our country/world.

Then you see a precious babe, and it reminds me of a baby Jesus, who came into a world that wasn't much better than today-

There is always HOPE and the little ones show us that side.

Carla from The River said...

Sweet as can be Sheri!
I agree with your prayer, I can worry for my boys future. I have to keep my eyes on God.
Love,
Carla
