After all, nothing depends on how things turn out–only on how you see them when they happen

DO YOU SEE THE ROSE OR THE THORNS?


NEW YEAR – NEW BLESSINGS

December 29, 2018

Among Weeds and Thorns

Digital Camera

When the garden is filled with weeds

Yet one stubborn flower

Finds the strength to grow,

Am I to frown

Because it is the only one?

Is it not a very welcomed blessing?

Surely its beauty

Nourishes my hungry soul

Giving me the strength

To tackle the overgrowth

Of opposition

Not unlike the single

Blooming rose

Basking in the midst

Of thorns;

Hope

Of a coming new season!

Gift of a New Day

July 31, 2018
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!

He Is PATIENT!

June 28, 2018

He isn’t really being slow about his promised return, even though it sometimes seems that way. But he is waiting, for the good reason that he is not willing that any should perish, and he is giving more time for sinners to repent.

2 Peter 3:9

As achild I was taught “God is great – God is good,” then I grew up and too often have prayed “where ARE you?”  You know what?  Both prayers are alright!  He desires a relationship!  DON’T FORGET TO LISTEN TO WHAT HE HAS TO SAY!
