Constant need of mercy and grace

I was really trying to take a picture to share with you of this charming little hummingbird outside my window.  As you can see, I am not a photographer.  Look closely--this little beauty hums back and forth and shares its space with the squirrels.

          My sincere apologies to those of you who were looking for a new devotion this morning.  I have to confess that I am not prepared.  Last night when I got home from work, I was so tired, I watched the evening news and then went straight to bed.  At first I felt very let down that I couldn't do what I had promised--give you two devotions each week--but then, I realized, I had to get some sleep.  I confess I am in constant need of His mercy and grace.

           Maybe there are meditations on the blog you haven't read yet.  Just go to "older posts" at the bottom of the page, click on those words, and you will be taken back to previous meditations.  I hope you will do that for a word of encouragement.

         Congratulations to Amy Jenkins, from Savannah, Georgia.  She will be receiving a copy of Jeanette Levellie's book, Two Scoops of Grace with Chuckles on Top.  On September 1, I will be reviewing a newly released book, Two Destinies by Elizabeth Musser, and I will be giving away her book, so please come back for an opportunity to win.

          I pray God's blessings on everyone who is reading these words.  I will have a new meditation for you on the blog on Wednesday, August 15th.  I leave you today with these words from Saint Jude.

"Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy.  To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever.  Amen."  Jude 24,25



  1. No apologies necessary, I enjoyed hanging out with your squirrel for a few minutes!

  2. Dearest Rose,

    Thank you for today's perfect post...I am praying for you to receive all of the rest you need - rest is good. Your squirrel photo is precious.



  3. Oh, Sandra and Jules, you ladies are so gracious. You make tears come to my eyes. I am feeling just a bit "inadequate" today. Just this minute trying to figure out how I am going to get through my weekend "to-do" list before five a.m. Monday morning rolls around. And I read these messages from you. Thank you. You just gave me a boost of love. That's the best kind of power.

  4. Thank you, Rose! I received my book in the mail yesterday!
