His Purpose

January 24, 2016

Kisses From God

 

Luther Burbank: “Flowers always make people better,

 happier, and more helpful: they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.”

I like this quote because it states something I have come to believe but in a different way. 

I believe that

God created flowers

solely for the purpose of making us smile, feel warm,

and know that we are loved. 

They represent God’s kisses to me. 


He Changes Not

I cannot change

my circumstances,

but my circumstances do not

have to change me!

He uses all.

HOPE CAN BE FOUND

January 23, 2016

Even Among Weeds and Thorns

Digital Camera

When the garden is filled with weeds

Yet one stubborn flower

Finds the strength to grow,

Am I to frown

Because it is the only one?

Is it not a very welcomed blessing?

Surely its beauty

Nourishes my hungry soul

Giving me the strength

To tackle the overgrowth

Of opposition

Not unlike the single

Blooming rose

Basking in the midst

Of thorns;

Hope

Of a coming new season!

LOVE THY NEIGHBOR

January 23, 2016

The Stranger’s Cat

Glancing outside my window

and across the street,

I see a tired home

in near darkness.

I wonder who lives there

for I have never seem

your face

oh neighbor of mine.

I wonder if you are happy

or sad,

tall or short.

I know you have love in your heart,

for I have met your cat.

I see the garage door

is always left open . . .

not much,

but just enough for my furry friend

to pass in and out.

I’d like to someday meet

the one who loves my furry friend.

Unexplainable

sometimes you just have to trust

and are rewarded.

Feel the warmth of Jesus’ smile

and a bad day becomes good!

You Are The Potter

Sometimes I just need to call out to Abba and He is always there when I do . . . and when I do not.  He knows my every need.  How amazing is that love?

Deuteronomy 31:8
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

Psalm 119:76
May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.

John 14:1
Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me
