The sky is so large

Yet we often see just clouds

He gave so much more

SURRENDERING AGAIN

September 15, 2017

Is it just me, or is the quiet of the middle of the night a challenge to faith? As I lay in my quiet room,as usual only my neighbor’s dog and I were awake.  He wanted back into the house and I wanted the weight of the world solved and lifted from my shoulders.  Would I ever have have enough money . . . strength.. . friends . . . so many worries .. . then the usual reminder brought rest.

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

THE EYES OF OUR HEARTS!

CARE FOR THE WOUNDED SPIRIT

September 12, 2017

Life gets crazy at times.  We all know.I am in one of those seasons with many challenges all at once and a hurricne coming to town did NOT increase my faith, bring me more peace of mind, nor inspire restful sleep. . .until. . .

 

I hunger for quiet rest.

My strength fails me,

my courage weakened,

I cry out to you

and hear only pounding wind

and pouring rain.

Fear grips my soul as I wonder

what more do I have to lose?

Then over the menacing storm I hear them . . .

birds singing in the tree in my yard.

As always, you are here!

I amloved.

AT ALL TIMES GIVE THANKS

September 5, 2017

Smiling,

The cloud rained down.

The droplets kissed the dry land.

Refreshed and blessed,

The blades of grass looked heavenward      

And the sun began to shine.

Keep Holding On

September 1, 2017

Hope in my pain . . .

It’s like sunshine in the rain.

I can’t see it.

I can’t feel it,

Yet I know its nearness

And that alone propels me.

I move forward

With You.

HOPE FOR THE FUTURE

August 30, 2017

Tiny feet

Scampering about,

Carry a wee one

Full of promise!

From such as this

Once was born

A Savior!
