If you read yesterday's post you may remember that I mentioned a blog or 2 that I wanted to share with you, but I was waiting to hear back from the authors (because I waited until the last minute to ask). Well, I heard from Karen who writes Titus 2 Tea and she very kindly gave me her blessing to share her work with you. :-)
When God Says No
When I read this post it resonated deep in my spirit. Part of that is due to the fact that the child in the story is deaf and speaks by signing. I have always been fascinated with sign language. I have always wanted to learn, but never seem to have the time or the cash to pay for the classes. One day though. It's on my bucket list.

Wow. His love determines His answer. His love, which is all encompassing, all seeing, all knowing, complete in ways our hearts cannot even comprehend. That is just beautiful.
I have nothing else to say. No more words that can better describe how this touches me, moves me, and gives me peace. So I will just say good night and God bless. I'll see you tomorrow. :-)
