Redemption’s Kiss

praise

Listen to the silence

Whose music stirs the soul,

And whose breath,

Like a kiss,

Touches me

And leaves me forever new.

Daily Retreat?

August 30, 2018

We all need reminding . . .

Quiet times with the Lord should not be considered a luxury which we hope to fit in, but instead a necessity to begin the day with.  A retreat . . . a meal for a hungry soul.  A retreat is livegiving but need not seem unattainable!  One can take place in our own livingroom, in our favorite chair . . . simply by getting up a little earlier.  The difference it will make in our day, in our life, is beyond description!   Try it!

Prayerful Thoughts Over Morning Coffee

August 28, 2018

sleeping

Do you ever have trouble sleeping?  I sometimes do.  I never did as a child.  If I close my eyes right now, by day, I can still recall the soft murmuring of Mama and Daddy talking in the other room.  I didn’t always understand what they were saying, but I felt safe and loved and knew everything would be okay and felt their comforting nearness as I drifted off to sleep.   I am not that innocent little girl anymore but whether I am feeling alone or not, my Abba is always near and loving me too!  All I need to do is let go, let Him take care of me, and rest knowing He will never abandon me . . . just like my earthly parents never did. Amen

DON’T HATE MONDAY!

August 27, 2018

Tee shirt vendors got it wrong!  God gave us a new day . . . let’s be hopeful . . . thankful even!  Attitude matters!

 

bees 10 - Copy

I awakened to a quiet house.

It was very early

and the only noise was

the soft sound of my dog asleep nearby.

Sensing my gaze,

she stumbled out of bed and followed me.

I sit sipping my first cup of coffee

and breathe in the peaceful soft sounds of the new day.

I don’t know what the day brings

but I know who brought it.

That is sufficient.

A JOYFUL SERVANT

August 20, 2018

Sometimes . . .

You have to listen really closely

To hear the music in the silence.

But, once you hear it,

Your heart will never forget its voice.
