You were always there for me
I took you for granted
Until one day.
I looked deep into your eyes
And you looked to my heart
And I gave it to you.
I was reborn!

Poor sleep made me grumpy this morning. . . knowing better didn’t help. Puppy kisses thawed me out some . . . temporarily.
GRUMPY? Not me!
Psalm 150 Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens![a]
2 Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!
3 Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp!
4 Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe!
5 Praise him with sounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
“Remind yourself every day you get up
and everywhere you go,
‘I am in the presence of God.’”
My residence – so disappointing,
there was nothing I could do.
I was ready to give up
but then my Father spoke to me.
He started with the woodwork,
old ceilings to bad floors.
He renovated tattered walls
and then the windows had to go!
He worked hard day and night . . .
took up residence right there.
Instead of leaving in the night,
His love did me repair.
I learned so very much from Him!
Soon everything was new!
I want to be so much like Him,
giving blessings in His name!

My Mom and Dad both helped me reno my house and me! The most important task they did was lead me to my Lord and my God!- ML Shaw
LORD, thank you for taking residence in my heart and soul and for never giving up on me even when I weaken and am tempted to give up on myself! Strengthen me to see beyond the darkness where there is Light and to shine Your light on those whom you place in my path. Your glory IS my joy now and always! AMEN
You are my lantern!
. . . my Light and my salvation.
I am Yours always.
