More Value than many sparrows | My week in pictures {from the phone}

“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.”
Matthew 10:29-31

Though I had other plans this afternoon{computer work, exercise, etc} I sit here watching my 18 month old sister eating the lunch I prepared for her and prepare myself to clean the kitchen & the ketchup I just spotted on the wall. ;) Yes, I had other things I wanted to do at this moment but her big smile and “fank you”{thank you} made it completely worth it! :) Life is full of unexpected changes and this afternoon is proving that fact to be true. ;) So, as I sit here I will put together my random “from the phone” post{posting may be delayed as she has just asked me to read her a book}!
Another week has come and gone and a new one is about to begin. :) God’s grace has been sufficient this last week as always and though I am always faced with hurdles/small trials {sometimes big} in every week, His grace & goodness continue on! And when those hurdles seem too tall and the temptation to become discouraged or fear sets in I am reminded of the sparrows. :) Fear not! For you are of much more value than MANY sparrows. :) It is true! “Be anxious for nothing”, “rejoice always”, “trust in the Lord with all your heart”, and remember His eye is on the sparrow and He watches you! He knows your every desire, weakness{Hebrews 4:15}, all your hopes, and even your fears. He “works all things according to the counsel of His will” and He promises not to withhold “any good thing from those who fear Him”{Psalm 84:11!} If you feel the temptation to become discouraged remember, God’s ways are perfect{Psalm 18:30} and if He who has every hair on your head numbered knows when even a sparrow falls, will He not care for you? :) May the Lord fill you this new week with a peace that passes all understanding as you trust in Him!

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Proverbs 3:5-6

Randomness in pictures from my iphone this week! Sorry for all the 20 some-odd photos. :) Lots goes on in a week around here!! Hover for descriptions. :)

 I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free, for his eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me.


About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20
