MOST TREASURED GIFT – FAITH

A distant rumble

cannot darken my delight

in nature’s beauty

Lily

When I got my first home, knowing nothing of gardening, I was amazed when the neglected yard suddenly come spring had lilies in bloom!  When I relocated some years later filled with hopes and dreams, I also faced many unexpected challenges. I still do. Come spring though, I was again surprised by lilies!  I still know nothing about gardening, but I know my Savior’s redeeming love.  I saw it that day in the lilies He gave to me! The lilies bloomed again today – an ever living reminder of His love!


In His Image

In the quiet

I felt your arms around me.

I smiled.

I sighed.

I knew your breath,

So close to me,

Was filling my lungs

And giving me strength

To grow . . . to go on.

I was in you.

You were in me.

JESUS WEPT- SO CAN WE

Cry

Tears are like refreshing rain

Restoring the parched land of the soul

And welcoming new life.

COME


More Than Enough!

October 16, 2014
My eyes fail, looking for your promise; I say, “When will you comfort me?”  
Psalm 119:81-83

Are you seeking  the Lord’s promise, His comfort?  I am.   Comfort presents a soothing image like this perhaps:

bedroom comfort

 The sun is streaming through my bedroom window, the sounds of birds are singing and children at play outside while rushing off to school  .  . . the afghans, quilts, pillows and things I’ve created provide comfort.  I am, at this moment designing something of that sort to provide comfort to someone I love.  I know my gift will be appreciated.

Still, it will not be quite enough.  We cannot, in our humanness, provide “enough.”  As I read what the Psalmist writes “when will you comfort me” I am convicted.  For, like him I know the Lord’s promises, know they are real, know they are mine, and know they bring me more than enough  . . . as only He can.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. John 14:1-3 My heart is troubled.  But I am working on that because He loves me.  Just as the throw I design and make for the one I love will provide warmth and comfort, so then will the Lord provide in much greater ways than my love can do.  So, I will stitch, I will pray, I will listen, and I will wait.  I already know how my story ends, for He already won for me the victory!
