A Metaphor for Life or The Struggle is Real

Here are my sister's grands on March 1 trying to scale Mt. Plowmore at my house. Love the commentary. My little grand niece's sweet voice particularly tickles me—"I'll never make it." She reminds me of my own laments in recent weeks. 





"You're pushing me off!"


Did they make it? Oh, yes, they did! 






Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” King James Version (KJV)


Thank you for reading. I know that I am pretty scarce in Blogdom these days and will continue to be. Do not keep the light on. ใƒƒ


Love,

Vee

  2. The children are so cute! Their struggle is what so many of us go through in life. I love it! So sweet! The verse you shared from Isaiah is a favorite of mine. God bless you! Stay well!

  5. That's a lot of snow. I'm so glad the littles could enjoy such an embankment. That's a favourite verse of mine (I have so many favourites). Thank you for giving my heart a lift with these words. Wishing you a beautiful day, Vee.

  6. Hi Vee~ Wow, we really did send you all our our storms!! Those cute littles looked like they were having fun... loved the pictures, and the scripture. I really needed to hear that on this day :0) I know how you feel about being scarce here. But when you are here, I love reading what you have to post about, it's all good! Have a great week-end. Hugs, Barb

  10. Oh, this is so precious. I love seeing the children playing in the snow, and yet for them, it is really hard work, not play! But they are learning as they go and grow. Just as we are learning as we go and grow and climb those mountains. I do miss you, but am always happy when I see a little comment from you on one of my posts. It always warms my heart. I do pray you are doing well, and if not, then I pray God will help you in whatever your struggles may be. God bless you my friend. (((hugs)))

  18. Happy to find a new post, Vee, and one that recalled such childhood fun! I know that my brother and myself had similar experiences growing up in NJ in the days of major snowfalls. The video was fun and glad they made it to the top.

  19. Hi Vee,

    Yes, life truly is a struggle much of the time. I feel blessed to have the life I have, but I know there are people who struggle every day just to make ends meet or to survive. We have our problems and worries here, too. I am sorry that it has become such a struggle for you.

    Your great-nieces are precious; their determination to scale Mt. Plowmore is admirable. :D Your sister is so faithful to visit, and I know you must be grateful. I'm not sure my sister and I would be so good about visiting one another. ;)

    Thank you for sharing this video, Vee. We miss you here, but we understand. I appreciate your kindness in leaving comments for me on my little spot in blogland. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    1. Nope. The tallest is a great-nephew. ๐Ÿ˜Š He'd not be happy to be a girl. His sister was the one bewailing climbing that mountain.

      Thank you for your visit and your prayers. Much appreciated.

  20. Hello Vee,
    What determined little darlings! And they made it. I am sorry to read that you are struggling just now. It is so encouraging and strengthening to read God's promises - He will never leave you nor forsake you.
    Praying for daily grace.

  23. Wow! Those sweet kids persevered and made it!! I loved hearing your grand niece’s voice, too!
    The scripture verse from Isaiah is a beautiful one. Happy Easter, Vee.

  25. Hello Vee! I'm sitting here with a sleeveless top, bermuda shorts, and sandals with the windows open and a ceiling fan whirling above my head -- while you watch the mountain of snow outside your window. Your winters are long and my summers are long. We adjust as we must.

    Your blog posts are always so welcome, even if they're not as frequent as your fans would like. Keep the faith. What we have now is temporary, the eternal will eventually arrive and it will be wonderful. You know that. Blessings and hugs!

  29. Hello Vee! I have just viewed your Mother's Day post but see there is no provision for comments. I love it whenever you post, even though it's not as often as in years gone by. May the Lord continue to bless and keep you and cause His face to shine upon you!

If comments disappear, please don't fret. A simple "hi" will do. The platform surely needs some maintenance.
