Thank you for joining me for The Weekend Brew.  I love this community and I love reading your posts.  I have few words today as my mother is in the hospital being treated for Sepsis.  She is doing much better tonight than she was this morning.  I covet your prayers and will be posting updates via Facebook.  I pray you all have a beautiful weekend.

    Barbie~that painting/photo of yours is absolutely beautiful. I love the blend of colors and images. And the Word enhances it. You should make a poster of this and sell it. I’d buy one!!!
    Have a blessed weekend. Good to be hear again.

    Hi Barbie … Thinking of you and your mom right now … not the way you had hoped to celebrate Mother’s Day, I’m sure. I hope you find God meeting you together in that place, and that healing will soon be hers.

    Hugs for you both …

    Barbie, hope your mom is improving today. Loved the picture of your kids and your son-in-love on FB (that’s what I call my daughter’s husband, too!). Happy Mother’s Day to you my friend. Much love!

    A beautiful graphic to go with that Scripture verse. Anxiety can too easily overtake us. But I’m learning that our God is sufficient for all my needs. I was glad to remember to link up today.

    Blessings and love,
