When we pray simply “you know what I need,” from which point of view does our expectation align? If it is His, and given that He knows us better than we know ourselves, how can we claim our prayer was not answered?Martha L Shaw Thoughts Over Morning Coffee
When I was small I rarely had to fear because Daddy was there to hold me close. Brokenness never challenged him much whether it was a displaced dolly’s head or my broken heart. He always held me close, dried my tears, and put my broken pieces back in place with his love. He’s not here to do that anymore but Abba still is whenever I need Him. I needed Him today.
That one tiny lie makes it so much easier to add another and yet more and thus we have dug ourselves a tunnel so deep that to navigate our way back on the path to truth becomes more and more difficult until, in the end, we become the very lies we told. So sad, the gift of life left behind for us because we made poor choices. - Martha Shaw – Thoughts Over Morning Coffee
Soft lips touch my finger.
Teeth grip my knuckle.
Smiling eyes . . .
New tooth coming!
Marked by love.
