Why is the shepherd running ahead?

Does He not care?

Where are my caring friends?


nobody wants me!

“My child.

I Am ahead of you preparing the way!”

They quietly discussed His purpose,

though the child wondered.

Hearing and seeing many behind the two,

she asked the Lord

“What are they doing?”

“My child, they are fasting while providing prayer support!”

She knelt at His feet.

Prayerful Thoughts Over Morning Coffee

For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord. Psalm 117:1-2

A pot made of clay

by skilled hands . . .

we, too, are thus made

by the Creator God’s hands.

So many types of clay,

so many types of pots,

the Lord GOD lovingly made us all.

They come in different colors, strengths,


all have value,

all made with equal amounts of love.

Sadly, more importance is placed

on global warming,

than human life.

News broadcasted multi times daily

speaks more of “another” shooting.

than a “tragic” one.

Is there a right or wrong side of the street??

a right or wrong skin color??

We were created with immeasurable love, all of us.

Will we ever put the guns down?

God’s Fuzzy Little Helper . . .

Could it truly be an accident

that God spelled backward

becomes dog?

Though animals are frequent in the Bible,

I do not recall my Scrappy . . . or your Sadie.


though God’s love is not questioned,

the sweet faced,

soft eared,

warm tongued critter

and her unquestionable love and kisses

have nursed many a heartbrake.

Thank you Lord!

Wings in flight . . . the traveller sings,

Leaves on the now empty branch dance.

and the song grows further away.

Seasons change.

New gifts are given.

New songs are sung!

I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and I look at it, until it begins to shine.- Emily Dickinson –

Well, Emily Dickinson missed a lot! Our beloved Creator made all and yes, indeed, from birth all shone and reflected His SPLENDOR! – Martha Shaw

Praising God for theGift of a New Day

July 14, 2019

sunny day


It’s been raining long and hard

And gray skies were all I could see.

But today is different,

Or perhaps I am,

For I see a bright spot

Glowing through the

Clouds of morning.

I shall dance!

Dancing with the raindrops

And celebrating the sun

Am I

For today is

A new day

And the Lord has blessed it!
