Sweet Friends,

First of all, I am grateful to my sweet friend, Trish, who allowed me to copy the above picture from her blog site. It is a plaque that was given to her late mother when she was young. I fell in love with it because it has one of my favorite scriptures on it. Thanks, Trish.

Actually, I've been doing a lot of trusting in the Lord this week. In fact, I prayed and fasted one day this week in order to feel closer to Him that usual, and to receive guidance and direction. I am grateful to say that I did feel an increase in His Spirit and received a "minor" miracle, which I won't go into here. But I am deeply grateful for that blessing this week.

Another blessing was that I had a wonderful lunch on Friday with my sweet blog friend, Beth, from Aunties with Advice. She blogged about it HERE. (Alas, my camera is still broken, so I can't add any of my own photos). We found out that we live in the same town here in Utah, so we got together and talked and talked. It was wonderful. She also gave me some very sweet Pay-It-Forward gifts that I treasure. Thank you, Beth!

Sunday, March 1st, I am designating "Pocket Change" day...To remind you what that is, read HERE. I am encouraging everyone to save their pocket change through the month and then use it to bless someone's life and then share what you did and inspire us.

Hoping you have a great Sabbath!
