For Mom and Dad

The shepherd knows what pastures are best for His sheep, and they must not question nor doubt, but trustingly follow Him. Perhaps He sees that the best pastures for some of us are to be found in the midst of opposition and trials. If He leads you there, you may be sure they are green for you, and you will grow and be made strong by feeding there. Perhaps He sees that the best waters for you to walk beside will be raging waves of trouble and sorrow. If this should be the case, He will make them still waters for you, and you must go and lie down beside them, and let them have all their blessed influences upon you. -H.W.Smith

I have been praying for you today, Mom and Dad! I love you! Manda

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be AFRAID.


  1. I love this quote - is it from a book ?


  2. Thanks Darlene! Yep! It is from a book. Matt and I get away almost every year for our Anniversary and stay in Sturgeon Bay. There is a unique shop up there that we always treasure hunt in. We found an antique book called "Leaves of Gold" one year and it has all kinds of inspirational quotes in it.
