Giving Words of Blessing

As many of you can imagine, I'm going through a dark time right now. I had posted about it and pulled both posts so I can edit them as our story unfolds.

One thing that would help me a lot is blessing. Hearing and reading good words spoken over me. So, dear friends. I ask you to bless me. Share a comment with whatever is on your heart to share. I need the fuel of good words spoken over me. Imagine me palms up ready to receive.
Love y'all,

PS Don't get worried about sounding religious. If you want to say, "I bless you with (benefit)" that's fine. Or you might just want to remind me of something positive or admirable about my self.

You are the Lord's anointed, set apart for doing good works. Your value is enough that the Lord bled to buy you back and he'll never let you go. May the Lord bless you and keep you and make his face shine on you. May He hide you in the shadow of His wing.

The Lord Bless you and keep you, the Lord make his face shine upon you and give you peace through the storm. May He be gracious to you and full of mercy. May He show you every day how precious you are to Him and may He fill your heart with a love so overwhelming that you wash all those around you in it's overflow.

Your vulnerability and your transparency are your strengths.

You are one of the most beautiful women I have the privilege of knowing - both inside and out. Your heart & words inspire me and your love of God encourages me.

I hear this song and hear you in it - just a chorus from "She Will be Loved" by Maroon5 ~God loves you with this consuming love, sweet friend.

"It's not always rainbows and butterflies
It's compromise that moves us along
My heart is full and my door's always open
You can come anytime you want

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
She will be loved"

You are loved.

I've been having trouble finding words to pray for you, so I've been dancing prayers instead....my blessing is that you are like a gyroscope. A gyroscope spins, but the more it spins, the more stable it is, so that if it's fast enough it can easily balance on almost anything. God keeps you spinning around, so that you cannot be thrown over. He is your center and your stability.

I pray God's blessing over you and your family. Your writings here have been a blessing to many and have encouraged me to strive to be a better wife (lover) of my husband.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jer 29:11

Even when I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of darkest pain I know You are with me.

You are worth alot. Valued deeply. Loved freely. Chosen by Him.

May the Lord Bless you with love, strength and peace like no other. Continue to stay bless, sweet, spiritual and informative. Remember we go through trials not only for us but to help someone else. God Bless you.

God brings you to my mind on a daily basis. So be blessed knowing that He has placed you on my heart, and as one who has also walked a similar dark path, there will be light at the end of the tunnel.

You have made a a difference in my life by your transparency, your compassion and your devotion to your family and husband. I bless you with my favorite encouraging scripture and pray it will fill your heart: May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Blessings to you, Shula, and healing to your marriage. . .

Dear Shula,

When I was very sick for a week last Summer I discovered your blog. I read extensively.

Your words were better medicine to me than anything the doctor prescribed.

I bless you for your loving heart!

Shola. you are an amazing woman. You are rightly and aptly named a "Senuous Wife" and that regality shows within every word you write. You have no idea how being a part of your journey has touched and blessed me, and now I hope that my prayers and faith in you will bless you during this time of trial.
not to be cliched, but... You are a Woman, the pinnacle and cresendo of all Creation... God's final, finishing touch on this magnificent world... Don't forget the loving way He shaped you, and with exacting purpose, as well.
God Bless you, Shula.

I'm sad that you are going through a valley right now. At times it is hard to see God's hand in impossible situations or when the darkness hides you. Stay under the shadow of His wing. I received your SOS and have continued to lift you both up in prayer. God bless you and strengthen you through your pain. May He continue to bless you as you are a blessing to each of us.
