He crowns ME with LOVE and MERCY!

Psalm 103:4 & 5 "He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown.  He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal. He renews your youth—you’re always young in his presence."

So thankful that my God crowns me with love and mercy.....He wraps me in goodness.....and He renews my youth.  Somedays I question does he really love me....is he really holding me....am I really young in his presence? 

Then he gently reminds me by some small gesture from someone, or a call, or just something I read.  I feel his love when I get to hug on some of my grandkids even if it is for a short time because they all live far away. 

He shows me his goodness when I look at these little ones and think that I may have not even been a part of their lives if He hadn't shown me his love and mercy 28 years ago.   You see He crowned me with His love and mercy 28 years ago when I accepted him as my personal savior.  Then 20 years ago My hubby and I founded The Ranch and approximately 8 years ago the daddy of these 4 little ones started calling me mom (adopted me) when he was 16 years old and has not stopped since.  God showed me Love and mercy so that I could share that with Dustin. 

After having these 4 with us this weekend and then reading this scripture I was reminded that he really does love me, he is wrapping me in his goodness and HE renews my youth in HIS presence. 

I love you Lord and I thank you for Lilly, Emma, Kynsley & Madison.

So glad we got some time with them this weekend!

I love reading about your grandkids. I am so thankful Dustin has you in his life. He was in my class at Madison School in second grade. Karen Kingsbury is my favorite author too. I continue to pray for you and your family.
