UNRAVELLED

 

 

We begin life finely knit together,

One to another,

No labels,

Many colors,

Plump or delicate,

Uniquely different yet all the same

In likeness to Him.

Sadly,

We mature and our eyes,

Those human orbs,

Deny the truth held in our hearts.

Sitting At Your Feet

August 4, 2018

My thoughts just drifted back to my childhood and to how much I loved sitting on the floor at Nana’s feet, feeling unconditional love and listening to her stories, memories, advice, and so much more.  Time was meaningless as I knew such love and acceptance and encouragement and lost all sense of time.

How fitting to immediately find this before me! “Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is his name: Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”  – Jeremiah 33:2-3

 

Can I have an

AMEN?

 

 

 

 


HE DID NOT CREATE US WITH LABELS

The happy little dandelion

growing in the field

smiled toward heaven

all the while.

No one ever said

“you’re just a weed”

so he had no doubt

that he was loved.

Perhaps

there is a lesson

here for me?

WE ARE BORN WITH OPEN MINDS  AND LOVING HEARTS.

LET’S REMEMBER HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS!

 


WE DECEIVE OURSELVES!

Before we judge and

close our doors and hearts to one another,

we need to remember that

our church buildings would be empty of any but

our Triune God

were it not for

we sinners present!

MY MISSION

November 3, 2017

Who is my neighbor?

She is the universe . . . ‘My quest, my duty?

To love her,

To protect her,

To encourage her,

To bless her Creator!

BY FAITH ALONE

April 22, 2017

Despite their fragility,

in body and on branch,

the birds sang on

in delicate harmony.

Thunder and lightening,

driving wind and rain

did not change their spirit!

We have much to learn from them!
