Simple Truths // Glimpses Link Up — 25 Comments

  1. Barbie,

    I love this. I love your generous beautiful heart. Our purpose is to love Him, isn’t it. All other things sort of fall into line when we realize that is all we need to really do. When we just let that settle the weights we place on ourselves have no more burdens holding them down.

    I don’t like transition times…they are not comfortable and that is w here I am right now…transitioning in so many places. Yet, the transition space is always always filled with awe and reverence for His faithfulness.

    Thanks for this reminder about purpose. It blessed me today!

  2. Barbie,
    I appreciate your honesty and how you model continuing to trust God. I love coffee ice cream and a clean kitchen, too 🙂 Praying God continues to encourage you and may you continue to find beauty, my friend. I tried linking up but for some reason the link with my image didn’t work

Blessings to you my friend. xo

  5. Barbie, I can certainly identify, and God is teaching me to look for beauty everywhere. I know that He loves me and knows what is best. Even though He takes me through unfamiliar territory, I know He will be with me to help me through. Thank you for your very encouraging post!

    Blessings to you!
