HOPE’S MORNING RAYS

December 6, 2018

The house is quiet.

It is early morning

And the moon is handing the reins to the sun.

The illusion of darkness fades

As the breath of a new day

Fills my heart and soul.

“Good Morning” Hope seems to say.

I rise.

“GREATER THINGS THAN THESE . . .”

Let Everything Praise the Lord

November 15, 2018

Poor sleep made me grumpy this morning. . . knowing better didn’t help.  Puppy kisses thawed me out some . . . temporarily.

Then this quote from Psalm found me and brought with it a definite deterging quality.  “Trouble and anguish have found me out, but your commandments are my delight.” Psalm 119:143 ESV

GRUMPY?  Not me!

Psalm 150 Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens![a]
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!

Praise him with trumpet sound;
    praise him with lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine and dance;
    praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with sounding cymbals;
    praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

FOREVER LOVE

November 10, 2018

It always seems so difficult

to have lost the ones you love

even though we know that they

are pain free up above.

But oh the happy memories

that come back with a start!

For I know that they are nearest

When I look inside my heart.

How deep is the sky?

Ah blue . . . the color of trust.

Everlasting love!

My Father

November 6, 2018

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 MORNING PRAYER

November 5, 2018

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
