Day 221 - "I am the vine..."

"I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."

This verse brought tears to my eyes just now. Without Him I can do nothing! Oh me and my stubborn self trying to figure out solutions to the things that weigh heavy on my heart. I know God is patting me on the head and reminding me once again, "Silly girl. Without me ye can do nothing." What a gracious Heavenly Father I have. So full of mercy.

I went out for a pleasant evening walk tonight around my mom's neighborhood. Absolutely perfect weather, a cool breeze blowing and just me alone with my camera and the Lord was exactly what I needed.
