Blessed By Darkness and By Light

 God speaks to me 2

If it wasn’t for the storm

Would the dead wood remain standing?

Without its rain,

Would the pond still refresh my thirst?

Would the grass still grow and cushion my footsteps?

Would the garden still feed my body,

Feed my soul?

If it wasn’t for the storm,

Would I still see the sun and feel its warming rays?

Rejoice!

NO LONGER UNSEEN

January 14, 2017

Open your heart to faith

and pray with hope

unceasingly.

You will be amazed

at the previously unseen miracles

Love has richly showered you with,

which you have taken for granted.

It is never to late to bow down,

to say thanks,

to share the good news.

Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.
Isaiah 26:7-9

 

 


Have Faith, BUT . . .

November 23, 2016

I have been facing BIG challenges for a while, as many of us do.  People have “encouraged” me saying”have faith” followed by “most people never get help for . .. ” or “the new president is getting rid of . . . ” Fortunately I DO have faith, as did my family before me.

Limits?  Not my Lord!

My late Uncle Bob had only one arm.  As a child he played ball, rode his bike . . . he grew up and joined the yaught club, was a great golfer, personally rebuilt his house . . . I guess they forgot to tell him he could never do those things . . .

REIGN VERSUS RAIN

AT ALL TIMES GIVE THANKS

Smiling,

The cloud rained down.

The droplets kissed the dry land.

Refreshed and blessed,

The blades of grass looked heavenward      

And the sun began to shine.

In All Things

July 31, 2013

I hear it . . .thumb_cartoon_weather_set_showers

Thunder’s roll

I see the skies of black and gray.

The same hand that painted these

Holds the brush that brings about

The rainbow

In the wake of storms . . .

The hand that gave me eyes to see,

Ears to hear,

A heart to love.

I give you thanks.
