Thankful Heart!

With a thankful heart I praise my Lord
For all He has done and all He can afford
I thank Him for my family and friends
I thank Him for love that never ends 
I thank Him for my children who I love beyond belief
I thank Him for my husband who is my companion and relief
I thank God for the mountains 
I thank Him for the storms
I thank Him for the valleys
I thank Him for keeping us warm
I thank Him for our nourishment He provides
I thank Him that He is always by our sides.
I thank Him for you, the one reading this rhyme
and Pray that you will get to know Him more in time.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us!

The Clausens!

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Thank you to so many who have called and wanted to know more about our prayer shawl ministry, or who have asked for us to send one to you, At this time, I am having to suspend requests for prayer shawls, because I am simply overwhelmed with requests already and need to finish the ones I have already started before I can take on anymore.

When I started this venture I had several people wanting to help and many who were helping me make these items for others, but through the years, in the business of other's lives and through a battle with sickness of my own that had me down for a while, I have become the only one making these precious items for you. I am still praying everyday for the ones on my prayer list, so if you have a need and would like me to pray for you, please feel free to email me and I'll add you to our confidential prayer list, but I cannot add any more requests for shawls, blankets or prayer cloths at this time.

I pray that I will be able to begin taking requests soon, but until then, I wanted to thank so many for their support and prayers through this adventure with the Lord.

God's Promises Are True

Sometimes we find ourselves in situations in life where we wonder, "Where is God in this?" Whether it be sickness, financial struggles, loss of a job or even death of a loved one. We, as His childen, know the Lord promised, "... never to leave nor forsake..." but even in that we still can't see His presence.

This is when our faith is truly put to the test, when we must trust that God's promises are true. He says He will never leave, that He is near, and that He will work everything for the good. Even when we can't see these inner workings of God right away, we must be patient, have faith, stand strong in the Lord, and in His time, He will show through.

Psalms 73:28 "But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works."
Romans 8:28 " For we know, that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose."
James 4:8a "Draw nigh to God, He will draw nigh to you..."
