Easy Meal Idea, Beautiful Poem, Being Unique…

Emily van Rijn

 In this video I share an easy meal idea that we had for dinner last night, another helpful motto, three frugal living tips, one simple living tip, some thoughts about having courage to be unique and a beautiful poem from Streams in the Desert.

'The road is too rough,' I said; 

'It is uphill all the

No flowers, but thorns instead;

And the skies over head are grey.'

But One took my hand at the entrance dim,

And sweet is the road that I walk with Him.

"The cross is too great,' I cried–

'More than the back can bear,

So rough and heavy and wide,

And nobody by to care.'

And One stooped softly and touched my hand:

'I know. I care. And I understand.'

"Then why do we fret and sigh;

Cross-bearers all we go:

But the road ends by-and-by

In the dearest place we know,

And every step in the journey we

May take in the Lord's own company.
