    We can safely say, that to be HUMBLE, is one of the THINGS the LORD LOVES for us to do.

    Hi Susan

    I agree, keeping a humble heart opens my ears to hear and my eyes to see. This even helps me to see small blessings I might otherwise miss.

    Great post
    Thank you Lee. This post is something that I have learned over the years. A HUMBLE HEART, is one that is willing continues to WAIT upon the LORD, and to be a willing VESSEL. We still have so much to LEARN and so much to PRAISE the LORD for! AMEN.
