The sky is so large

Yet we often see just clouds

He gave so much more

We are human!  We fall short, we grow impatient, we begin to consider “what if . . .”  Take it to the Lordand be washed in His grace and know His amazing love!

Hope NOT Misspent


The clouds lingered long.

Will the light never return?

The dampness of my tears,

The ache in my limbs,

The longing for something more . . .

All forgotten in an instant

As my gaze found the sun!

freedom thoughts

. . . And the sheep know His voice!

The Lord spoke to my soul!

He often lovingly whispers, but this time He called out victoriously to my soul and this was His message which I must share!

holding hands


Get up and dance!

Do you not hear the glad sound?

Have you not seen the sun?

Is the splendor of this day lost to you?

Place your feet on the floor!

Lift your hands!

As the trumpet sounds

Sail across the floor in harmony with me!

Dance, clap, sing, share!

I am yours!

You are mine!

Is this not cause to celebrate?

How fierce is His love?  Remember David and Goliath!  He will do the same for YOU!

that delicious moment

when you don’t know how it’ll happen

and have no idea how things will play out

as you realize you can do nothing about it


you know who does

and your soul is filled with peace!

Hey, everyone!  Seems more and more of my friends here are having trouble getting their comments onto posts because they get slammed into SPAM folders on WP.  In my experience, this is happening to folks who’ve been on the blogs in question many times and made many comments in the past, yet still this sometimes does happen. 

Since much of the content of my SPAM folder is pretty nasty, I’d not been looking into it, but just emptying it.  Now I look to see if there’s a friend or two waiting to be rescued.  I recommend you do this as well.  There’s no clear pattern to this as one active blog buddy suddenly found all her comments going there, while another just had one or two land there and most of hers still posted.

Once you click “not SPAM” to rescue your blog buddies, you may find as I did that they wind up awaiting approval rather than posting regardless of your specific blog settings . . .

I’m hearing at the WP water cooler that this is an ongoing challenge, though my experience in this battle is limited.  Just an FYI so y’all may be aware of it and not miss out on anything in your blog experience.
