All Things Home

Meeting Amy Kisner from
was a pleasure and a delight. 
The road to her home was beautiful.
(The photos are not pictures of Amy's home or property)

In our world of blogging,
we connect because
we have certain things in common.
 We share a common faith,
a love for certain things, or
shared pain and circumstances.
Many times we are brought together
at God-ordained moments
for God-ordained reasons.
There are glimpses of His glory when we take the time to look.
Another sight on the way there.
A couple of years ago
when I was going through what I called
the "dark night of the soul,"
I got this private message
from Amy,
"I was just washing all of the day's eggs and the entire time I was standing at the sink, I was thinking about you. Why, I asked the Lord. I am not sure what I am supposed to say here Bonnie, but I am just going to type a few things that I felt like He was speaking to me. If I am wrong, then I know God's grace is abundant and that He will forgive me for speaking out of turn. He loves you so much and there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus. You have been set free. You are redeemed. You are precious and worthy. You are a bright shining star. Be still and know that He is God. He is Truth. Just follow Him in all that you do because He has the perfect plan for you. He does not make mistakes...ever. He is the Lifter of your head. Have you ever felt like a wallflower? Well, He sees you as the most beautiful girl at the dance. I pray that you will find the church, Bonnie, that God wants you to be at. I pray that you will just know that you know when you find home. I pray peace for you as you leave the church you have been at for so many years. Trust Him. I do ask the Lord to forgive me if I spoke anything from my flesh. God bless you my friend. "Amy
Amy knew some of what I had shared in my posts,
but did not the know the details of what had happened that day.
I was overwhelmed at just how much God loved me.
With tears streaming down my face, all I could do was
praise God without words from a humble and most grateful heart.
Amy said, "As Beth Moore would say, "I love you, too, Lord."
That's exactly how I felt.
When God is  pouring out His love on us,
our response should always be, "I love you too, Lord."
I just love a barn.
What a precious family, a beautiful home, with all the things I love.
She opened her home and heart to me as I already knew
she would.  She invited me in and I wanted to cry.
Her home made me feel at home.
When I first started following Amy,
her blog was, "All Things Home."
The photos on facebook and her blog
do not do her home justice.
It's beautiful but warm in a way that I can't explain.
On second thought, I think I can explain it.
It is filled with love and the Presence of the Lord.
Yes, All Things Home.

Wouldn't you think it fitting, that I chose a small
ceramic bird from her sale to remind me of God's love.
Again, He considers our value worth more than the sparrows.
What a glorious thought!
I forgot to say,
I got a bag full of goodies!
I'll share later.
