Crisis! Crisis! Crisis!

So, I stand here tired and stressed and facing the crisis of today and wondering WHAT WILL BE THE CRISIS OF TOMORROW . . . 

Problem with this line of thinking?  

The Lord already had the solution for today’s crisis YESTERDAY and while I’m running ahead fussing about tomorrow, HE’S HOLDING OUT HIS HANDS TO ME WITH THE SOLUTION I NEED RIGHT NOW.  

All I have to do is accept His Gift!

Blessed even in times of trial

Put on your shoes!

Everybody says, at some point “if only I had the talent to be . . .” a writer, a dancer, a singer, a chef. . . . lay aside the award you covet and pick up the pen, the spoon, the sheet music . . . put on the shoes! You can only be a dancer IF YOU DANCE! – Martha L Shaw​

My late Uncle Bob had only one arm.  As a child he played ball, rode his bike . . . he grew up and joined the yaught club, was a great golfer, personally rebuilt his house . . . I guess they forgot to tell him he could never do those things . . .


Are You Blessed? A Challenge!

October 16, 2014

I was just given the following task and I am sharing it with you.  Please take a moment to answer the challenge and if you like, share you response by linking this post to your blog and let us read it!

The task:

Look around you right now. Really look. Take a few deep breaths and notice the beauty in the ordinary.  Share what you discover!

My response:

It is a lovely October day here in SC. I have my home office windows open to the cool air and sounds of my childhood . . . kids coming home from school and having fun, dogs barking happily, birds singing, men at work renovating their homes with power tools . . . the sounds and scents of cut lumber and mowed lawns brings Dad, my childhood home, my playmates back to me . . . it is like music and perfume to me. Blessings known by all the senses.

How about you?  A colored leaf? A puppy’s kiss?  A broken cookie?  What?

I cannot change

my circumstances,

but my circumstances do not

have to change me!
