Even in the darkest valley.

Words allude me tonight, friends. I have few. I wish I had more, but I don't. A heavy heart mixed with life turning crazy = a quiet mind, apparently. I'm sorry I don't have more to share with you tonight, as I had planned. All I can offer you is this - the few words that have been covering and comforting my soul the past few days.

They are simple words. But they hold so much truth. Earlier today, I remembered them - the words from the Psalms that I first read at the age of 10 when I received a little gift book with beautiful watercolor pictures. The truth sunk in back then, and it rose to the surface of my heart today as a sweet reminder of His love. It's been on my heart all day. And as the Lord would have it, one of my best childhood friends sent it to me tonight as a reminder. I love how God works.

May it encourage you too, friend. In whatever you are walking through this week.

"The Lord is my Shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters.
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths,  for His name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and your staff , they comfort me. 
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the  days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
Psalm 23.

I've got a vlog to share tomorrow and some more thoughts. Until then, be blessed! Love.

Also - Remember April from Rise Above Life who I featured below in the last post, yesterday? She has kindly offered my readers a FREE DOWNLOADABLE PRINT from her shop HERE, enter the code "tryme". Enjoy!  


  1. Love you, Sweetness. And praying for that aching heart of yours.

    Keep me posted.

    Your His little sheep, He is watching over you. Guiding and protecting you, even comforting you.

    May GOODNESS and MERCY surely follow you. All the days of your life, but especially, today <3

  2. Such comforting words! Thanks for the free print! So exciting!

  3. I'd like to print this and keep it in a small frame on my desk as a reminder. Praying for you - sometimes a quiet mind is also a blessing. (Even for a blogger!)

  4. praying that the Lord will lead you through this dark valley in His arms erin. Once through it, the light will shine on the other side. He is always there. :)


sweet friends, share your heart.
