A STONE’S THROW

February 11, 2019

I took a stroll

On a clear day.

Passing a brook,

I bent to pick up a stone

And tossed it in

And OH the ripples

Spread far and wide

From that one small gesture.

Believe!

CHANGE IS GOOD – LET’S WORK TOGETHER!

July 21, 2018

OUR DIFFERENCES WERE IN HIS PLAN!

God created us in His image yet each different in his and her own way.   But we’re forever at war with one another over the discord we see and hear. We refuse to see His face in others and further refuse to see and hear all that can be created when we blend together!

LET’S START A NEW TRADITION!  

THE ONE HE INTENDED ALL ALONG!-

NOT JUST AN ORDINARY DAY!

It Began Like Every Other Day . . . But Then

Jesus

A simple peasant girl

Answered yes

To a question

Which surely shocked her

And the world was changed

Forever.

Thanks, Mary.

BETTY’S HEART

November 7, 2017

betty carol

There are really none like my late friend Betty, pictured here on the right with her Mom on the left.  Her heart?  Prime example!  THE MOUSE!  If I met one in my house we are sure to find I freaked out and left town until it met its demise!  Not Betty!  She found one in the attic,thought it was SOOOOO cute,and fixed up a hamster cage for it.  It became family!

With a loving heart like that, can you imagine what a blessing she was to humans? 

Leviticus 19:18

18 “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.


FEAR – TRUST – GRACE

HIS WILL


WITH CHRIST WE SOAR!

HIS WILL


God’s Will = God’s Plan

April 7, 2016

HAVE YOU, LIKE ME, been waiting a long time for a change of season in your life? TOO MANY storms?  AN ENDLESS dry spell?  Take heart and know God, in His will for us and His great love uses all for good and has a GREAT plan for each of us!

IF WE BALK at His will,

how then can we blame Him for the result?  

Deuteronomy 11:14-16

14 then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil. 15 I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.

16 Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them.
