To Alle

Psalm 5:11 (King James Version) 11But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

Sunday Blessings dear friends, What a glorious day to be alive and to worship the King of Kings. Today I am so thankful for those friendships that have been formed through our bloggy world; something I think so many of us were surprised at the depth of relationships and the bonds that form without ever seeing someone face to face. Actually, I think getting to know someone heart to heart is better still, so today's post is dedicated to one very special friend whom I've come to know and love. Her blog is and Alleluiabelle is an incredible woman of God with such a deep faith that inspires many including me. I'd love to say I've been reading her for years but that wouldn't be true, but in the time I've followed her I've come to see a deep faith as she walks through the fire. I feel a deep kinship with Alle and so yesterday when she wrote a comment about never having been to the ocean before, it moved my heart. She asked that I twirl in the sand with outstretched arms in worship and I truly couldn't wait to do this little thing for her. I thought that seeing a visible reminder might uplift and encourage her this this is what I did. Today I plan to get out and again spend time before our King lifting holy hands to heaven but yesterday I just wanted some photos for her.

As I threw the sand in the air Alle, I prayed that each grain of sand would represent the weight on your shoulders right now, the trials you are walking though and they would just be lifted off of you. I wish you could be here with me, what fun we'd have and the time together before the Lord would be incredible; but know that many and I mean many, are lifting you and yours up today before our King.

On a side note my friends, it is still winter at home and I had no idea that my Capri's, that were so fashionable several years ago, would look so out of date this year~especially when you had a bit more fluff than you should so I won't be wearing these again. Have a blessed day dear ones. Hugs, Noreen


  1. Oh thank you sooooo much sweet sweet friend. I just love you!!

    Yes Yes Yes that is what I've wanted. You let me vibrantly experience praising our Lord with you in your pictures, on the beach, beside the ocean in Hawaii...what absolutely divine and beautiful pictures...{{{BIG BIG HUGS}}}

    Thank you Lord for such a beautiful day. Thank you for blessing me with such beautiful friends through YOU...all who love you with hearts bursting forth with praise and worship for you.

    I am sure your friend loved the post andt the praise in the sand you did for her (o:

  5. Noreen,
    You are too cute! I read Alle's comments yesterday or whenever it was, and I don't read all that many comments either. That was such a sweet thing to do, and you look great in your capris, I didn't see any fluff anywhere!!
    Glad you are having such a good time,
    and I hope it encouraged Alle, and from her comment I think it did.
    Blessings Galore sweet friend,

  15. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! What a great friend indeed.

    I had opened a second blog last week specifically with the idea of having a refreshing oceanfront beach house. When Alle commented that she had never been to the ocean, I wished I could take it right to her. What you've done here is perfectly beautiful. How blessed she is to have a friend like you.

    I am so glad I stopped by.

  16. It is just like you, dear friend, to do such a lovely thing! And you look absolutely wonderful, gal!! No LIE!!

    What a beautiful prayer for Alle...she is certainly blessed to call you friend, as am I!! May it be Jesus Holy Name, Amen.

    Love you lots!!
