God Bless The USA

June 30, 2012

Lee Greenwood and this amazing song “Proud to be an American” is high on my list of songs for any time of the year, but especially right now with the 4th of July approaching and so many friends – some of whom I’ve never met but still appreciate – overseas serving in our military right now.  Play this song and sing with me! Sing to them and with them!

Thanks for serving, everyone!  God bless you all!


Rock On – Compassion Redefined!

June 30, 2012

How do you define compassionate living?  It just may be broader than you have considered . . .

Our sense of community and compassionate intelligence must be extended to all life forms, plants, animals, rocks, rivers, and human beings. This is the story of our past and it will be the story of our future.

- Terry Tempest Williams -

 


The Mountains Are Shaking!

June 29, 2012

A friend shared this quote earlier today and it was His timing that I saw it.  Made me cry and reminded me that He and I will make it through every storm together!  Thanks to Kim for the reminder and to the Lord for His amazing love at all times!

“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:10″


What Do You Expect?

June 29, 2012

It’s been a crazy week . . . you know how those are.  This quote keeps me going and most especially in weeks like this one has been.  Blessing to you all! 

“The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever— do not abandon the works of your hands.” Psalm 138:8 NIV1984

Life In Full Color!

June 25, 2012

My life always seemed okay.  I went about doing my thing.  I didn’t see a need for making changes but there came a day when I met someone who made me question . . .

Suddenly, it seemed my life as I’d always known it lacked color.  I hadn’t noticed it before. 

I knew this man “knew something” I was missing out on . . .

This man had something I didn’t . . .

I began to pray for “some of that” in my own life . . .

He knew Jesus . . .

It was confusing at first, for I’d known about Him all my life . . .

The man I met and heard preach had something more . . .

I prayed some more and when I ran out of words, I heard His voice . . .

Knowing about someone is not the same as knowing Him . . .

The Lord wants to be close and personal with us . . . with me . . .

So I invited Him, and He was there waiting . . .

I saw His smile and tears in His eyes, just like the man who preached that day . . .

He had been waiting to get close to me since before my birth . . .

Suddenly, my life changed! 

It had color where there had only been black and white . . .

It had new direction, patterns, where there’d been just flat land . . .

 

It still has challenges yet now He’s holding my hand . . . carrying me!
