“I have something special for you.” she said with a smile.
Your face betrayed you
and you walked away
from the gift she held behind her back.
She never changges, you thought.
Her tears spoke more than you’ll ever know.
It is YOU who must change.
Jesus cried too.
She knows His love
and her heart began to heal.

The sun still shines
on dark rainy days.
You can see it reflected
in EVERY puddle!

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

There is an argument about whether one person’s insulted over $1,000 because another received $1,000,000. As I considered how HUGELY I’d appreciate 1,000 or 100.00 . . . I saw a face light up over the loaf of bread I baked him . . .lives have been changed over a loaf or a fish. – Martha L Shaw ©2018 words and image

It need not take devastation to awaken us to the beauty we’re surrounded with, but sadly that is so often the case! – Martha L Shaw

I had one of those nights last night . . . fitful sleep, distracted by “thoughts” and unpleasant dreams. So, when the clock slowly reached 5am, I got up, set the coffee on to brew, and sat down to check emails and read daily devotionals. One message quickly caught me and distracted me from my aches and pains. It was “Pray! It makes a difference” and having read it before coffee, I do not recall who said so, but I did as I was told and it DID change my focus. Our Lord is amazing! As I reflected on this, I randomly scanned emails and a comment on this post told me that I was blessed with an award NO STRINGS ATTACHED!
Thank you, Eric from The Hunt FOR Truth for this honor! If
you have not discovered his blog yet, do pop over and check it out. You will be blessed!

Lee Greenwood and this amazing song “Proud to be an American” is high on my list of songs for any time of the year, but especially right now with the 4th of July approaching and so many friends – some of whom I’ve never met but still appreciate – overseas serving in our military right now. Play this song and sing with me! Sing to them and with them!
Thanks for serving, everyone! God bless you all!
