I stepped into my quiet place,

My favorite retreat.

The leaves still whispered in the breeze.

The birds still sang softly in the trees.

I gaze up at the blue sky,

enjoying their music.

My soul rejoices.

For this is not a place for silence.

It is the place where my soul

Can truly hear!

LOOK TO THE LIGHT!

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.

THE CHOICE

The sun rises each morning.

Whether or not I choose

to look up and

let it warm my soul

is entirely up to me!

YOUR VALUES

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

Overlooked Blessings!

Today

I shall LEAP for joy

in thanksgiving

for all the amazing sunrises

I have somehow overlooked!

GRACE AND GRATITUDE

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

On Appreciation

July 9, 2014

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!
