THINK ABOUT IT

Read …Recite …Relationship

Pray,

It should mean something.

It does, doesn’t it?

When we’re finished, we sing and leave!

But . . .

I don’t need to read the book,

I can easily recite.

That counts, right?

Even if I forget the words?

Does it mean something?

How will He know what I said

if I don’t . . .

I’d rather have

A relationship with Him

using my own words

from my heart.

It matters to me

and to Him.

YOU BE THE JUDGE . . . OR NOT

April 8, 2019

We all have opinions, but be super careful in sharing them.  Religion, politics, gender, nationality, sexuality, intellect, and so much more . . . 

SO SAD TO REALIZE THAT WHEN WE HURT OTHERS BY PLAYING GOD, WE ARE OFTEN HURTING OURSELVES AS  WELL AS OTHERS AND GOD HIMSELF BY UNFAIR STATEMENTS AND . . .  

REVEALING OUR PERSONAL FLAWS – DISPLAYING OUR

 

DIRTY LAUNDRY!

 


DARKNESS OVERCOME

 bedroom comfort

Crickets and rain drops outside my window,

Quiet my distracted soul

And not unlike a lullaby,

I feel my spirit finding rest

In You.

BETTER EVEN THAN FLOWERS

February 4, 2019

Same old battle! That’s how we all feel some times . . . my body isn’t 21 anymore and some flaws cannot be fixed.  Am I the only one who remembers how easy things once had been? I picked up a book on praise because I was so grumpy I couldn’t find words within me but words aloud came from my tablet all by themselves, it seemed, saying “You like Christian Music” and the first song playing was my miracle for today.  I don’t know the artist nor did I know the song, nor even choose to hear, but listen I did.  The LORD CHOSE IT!  It spoke love to my soul assuring me I am never alone,I will be fine, He has a plan, I am loved . . . I still don’t know the song.  I was too wrapped up in His love, but when I need a hug I know He will be right with me!


LITTLE WORRIES DON’T HAVE TO GROW LARGER!

January 30, 2019

MOST OF US go to the Lord in prayer only for big things and wonder why we become stressed.  He wants to be in relationship with us, His children!  DO NOT SUFFER IN SILENCE!  REACH OUT TO HIM!

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. -Isaiah 41:10

 


FROM CHANGE COME UNEXPECTED BLESSINGS

January 7, 2019

How blue is the sky

and how bright the sun!

Winter’s warm smile

brings unexpected joy

on this mid-season day!

Tomorrow’s cold air

won’t be so biting

after this early taste of Spring!

I complain?  NOT!

For the four seasons bless me;

each in a new and unique way.

I bask in the opportunities

each one brings!

LOVE AND KISSES!

January 5, 2019

Luther Burbank: “Flowers always make people better,happier, and more helpful: they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.”

I like this quote because it states something I have come to believe but in a different way. I believe that God created flowers solely for the purpose of making us smile, feel warm,and know that we are loved. They represent God’s kisses to me.
