On Praying Expectantly

November 26, 2014

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


In His Arms

November 17, 2014

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.

Thoughts Over Morning Coffee – On Truth

November 13, 2014

 bookThat 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

My Song

Your breath

delights my soul

and I dance

without music.

Marked As His

Soft lips touch my finger.

Teeth grip my knuckle.

Smiling eyes . . .

New tooth coming!

Marked by love.

Pray Without Ceasing

October 1, 2014

Here I sit

working at my desk.

The windows are open.

The sun smiles down on me still

while the breeze gently tickles me

and the birds sing as they build their nest.

Like me,

they too are blessed!
