Puddle at my feet

Now a lake – living water

Love . . . faith . . . trust – Cleansed . . . changed!

GRACE UNMASKED

July 27, 2016

There have been so many times of crisis in my life, and still to come Im sure.  BUT one thing I have learned is that when I finally calm down, let peace fill me, and surrender to the Lord, His grace opens my eyes and heart to discover incredible gifts of love surround me which my fear blinded me from receiving!

THE SECOND VERSE

July 26, 2016

Oh darkness,

you cannot hide

my seemingly elusive joy.

For,

in my heart exists the Lamp

to guide me to it

So I will sing on!

PEEKING THROUGH THE CURTAINS

July 25, 2016

As I approach His table this coming weekend

there will be candles lit

and singing

and I will smile and think of  your birthday,

but there will be no cake

or wrapped packages

for you are on the other side now.

You have my love

and I have yours

but you have one thing more.

You live with Him

in the special place He prepared just for you.

I asked Him to give you a birthday hug

from me.

My late Mom, like my Nana  before her, spent time in her declining years peeking out the windows and making up little stories of what might be going on in the neighborhood, who’s cat wandered by, who had the holiday lights lit . . . they are on the other side of the veil, but I know they’re peeking!

WANTED:  Any Condition

July 25, 2016

 

This body,

Full of flaws,

Has become the sanctuary of the Most High

Simply because

I gave all of me

To Him.

Message From A Child On Peace

July 25, 2016

The following quote HAS to shared.  In the enlightened times where we still hear of cruel political figures and both random and mass shootings often from misdirected CHILDREN, let this and our faith in the Lord give us joy and hope!

 

Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.

– Anne Frank –

take wing

 


HE SAID IT – I BELIEVE IT!

July 24, 2016

Believe In Angels?

I sure do!  I know the Lord is with me always and I know He has angels watching me closely.  I may sometimes feel lonely, but I am NEVER alone!  You’re not either!  Rejoice!
