His Plan

January 20, 2015

Don’t be discouraged . . . people say that all the time and the Bible repeats it over and over and still I am temped to respond rudely when I hear it!  (and sometimes give in to the urge 😦

Today, He wanted me to finally sew for a special someone.  My response?  “But my bad shoulder and my tremors . . . ”  He persisted.  I am not so fast . . . He said it’s not a race.

Jeremiah 29:11

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.


Indeed He has a plan and it might sound impossible but He enables those He calls.  Today He assured me I could still sew.  Tomorrow?  I will find out when I get there.  He will speak softly to my heart and hold my hand.

Dedicated to Adam  . . . today’s special someone!

The sky is deep blue

and punctuated with clouds.

My silver lined soul!

The Strength of Tenderness

January 16, 2015


The ground is hard beneath my feet,

The air so sharp.

Still I travel

Where you lead

Hoping for a sign.

Stopping for a moment’s rest,

I discover hope’s gentle face

And sweet scent

Beckoning me on.

I smile,

Then rested and restored,

I travel on.
