Nurturing Thursday

Becca at ” On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea” says:

To “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy”… I am dubbing Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday.

Come join in the fun!

Though we have rightly applauded our ancestors
for their spiritual achievements
. . .those of us who will prevail today will have done
NO SMALL THING

(Neal A. Maxwell)

I have often looked back on the history of my ancestors and thought how difficult things were for them and wondered how could they have persevered. Then I once read the words that if our ancestors could have looked into the future and seen our trials of today, they would have shuddered and wondered how on earth we could persevere.

So, I believe we are all born into the time in history for which we are best suited. Next time you think that you can’t handle your current trial, always remember that you are here, now, because you can. Have faith in the Lord and all things are possible.

    Hi Linda, nice post! Always when I watch the movies about the wild west, cowboys, I say ‘how these people could live at that time’, now reading your post I’m laughing.

  3. Indeed, sometimes we forget what our ancestors did in order to have better lives. We should be grateful for where we are and what we have. Nice nurturing … !!!
    Namaste 🙏

    Nice thoughts. Every generation has its own set of trials, tribulations and triumphs.

    So wisely said Linda Dear and accompanied by a strong quote!
    I absolutely agree with your thoughts and I want to say further that when we are on ordeal,paradoxically,we summon up all our strength and courage and when all is over and look back, we can’t believe that we finally managed to get through.Difficult situations leave no choice,we instictively want to survive and usually we never bent.And above all,faith in the Lord is our haven,because we know that He never forgets us.Sorry for my rambling,but I found your post thought-provoking … Hope all is well with your beloved hubby.
    Sending love & hugs your way 🙂 ❤ xxx

  6. so true!! wonderful wise words. I hope all is well at home now. Blessings and Namaste.

  9. Thank you Linda, beautiful, uplifting words and very True, we never walk alone through the Storms life brings and God reminded me about this Truth when I was being drenched ( see below ) and again this recently with a Song, I hope you like it’s heart Melody too Linda.

    Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

    Christian Love – Anne.

    • Dear Anne, I truly appreciate your kind words and the beautiful, uplifting music. The Lord knows what we need and when we need it. Thank you for heeding His promptings and sharing this with me. Hugs! ❤

  10. I agree with you – and thus also think it’s our responsibility to try to make the present day world a better world to be in – for all.

    What a great post and I agree. I think about my ancestors a lot and thinking of how they made it and the way they struggled makes my life seem so much easier. Still keeping you and your husband in prayers. Hugs and blessings!
