Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

Day 60 in the Year of Our Lord 2012

As I mentioned yesterday, since we are going to WV tomorrow morning, Tim and I did our regular thrifting today.  I found several yards of material in a mauve/dusty pink pattern.  Very pretty!  I'm hoping I might have enough to make a matching outfit for all of the granddaughters!  Something for summer time, perhaps!  We will see!  Also found a few other goodies, but nothing worth mentioning here!

However, I received a special goodie that was waiting for us at the back door when we got back from our thrifting.  I was pleasantly surprised!  The sweet lady that sent this to me is one of the designers at Digitals that I became friends with several years ago now.  She asked me, and a few other gals from the Digitals team, what flavor of cake we liked and she listed a few.  Mine was the German Chocolate.  I asked her what she had up her sleeve.  She said she could not tell me.  Well, today I found out.  For, the pictures are of the package that we found at the back door.

In the box is a delicious (we know because we sampled it tonight after church!) coffee cake type of cake with the pecans, a Mardi Gra book, some Mardi Gra beads and a pack of coffee.  Did I mention that my friend lives in Louisiana?  :D

Here's a close up of the book, beads and coffee.

Here's a close up of the very colorful coffee cake ring!  It is HUGE!  We will definitely be taking it with us to share with the family this weekend!  Perfect timing on receiving it!  If it had come tomorrow, it would have sat outside for 3 days!  Thank you, LORD!  Your timing is always on time!  AND, thank you, Sharon, for your thoughtfulness!  BIG cyber hugs to you, sweet lady!

Not sure if I will be posting while gone or not.  If not, have a great weekend!
