One cannot measure the goodness of our God!
I wanted to give the right gift,
the perfect one.
I had little money
and few skills.
IT NEEDED TO BE PERFECT!
I grew more and more disappointed.
with tears in my eyes
and empty hands,
I threw myself to the ground
and cried out
“I love you!”
He was pleased.

I enjoy the applause.
Admiration is nice for a time
my lasting joy
is reflecting the Lord in all I AM and do.
I am nothing without His love.

and loved me enough to do it ANYWAY . ..
Never had a tree touched my heart.
Acorns, bark, leaves to rake.
It was so ordinary, almost invisible.
Lent’s reminder of my Savior’s love – His blood.
Somehow the tree isn’t just a tree anymore.
