I am overwhelmed by God’s grace and mercy this morning! 

A few days ago a Girlfriend showed me how to tie a scarf to turn it into a cute vest.
This morning, I pulled one of the scarves out that I had worn often,  after I lost my hair due to the cancer treatment .  

As I slipped on the vest, tears formed in my eyes and trickled down my cheek.  I sat down in the floor of my closet and thanked God that I am able to DREAM AGAIN!    Re-inventing the use of one of my scarves that reminded me of days past, full of pain and sorrow, TODAY, brought about tears of gratefulness and praise! 
Last fall, our Women’s Conference theme was DREAM AGAIN!   Helen Keller once said, “Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.”  I know what it is to suffer.  Today, I am so grateful to be a VICTOR not a VICTIM to the suffering.  I am an OVERCOMER!  I AM DREAMING AGAIN! 

The scripture says in Habakkuk 2:2-3 “And then God answered:  Write this.  Write what you see.  Write it out in Big Block letters so that it can be read on the run.  This vision message is a witness pointing to what’s coming.  It aches for the coming, it can hardly wait!  It seems slow in coming, wait, it’s on its way.  It will come right on time” (The Message translation)

Although there were times during my suffering, my vision was clouded, my dream seemed to be fading, God, in His mercy walked me through the “valley of the shadow of death” and today, when I allowed my SCARF TO DREAM AGAIN……………….I too felt the surge of His Presence in my Present!

Although it seems slow in coming, WAIT, it’s on its way, it will come right on time!

So great to hear you are doing well!! Your Blog today touched me deeply... my friend Carla is battling cancer and with your permission I'd like to copy this for her to read (she was so low last night). This is the second time she's had to go through chemo since 2006. Please keep Carla in your Prayers. Hugs, Toppie
