YES, YES, YES!

November 26, 2018

You were always there for me

Loving,

Guiding,

Protecting me

And yet,

I took you for granted

Until one day.

I looked deep into your eyes

And you looked to my heart

And I gave it to you.

Then,

I was reborn!

How deep is the sky?

Ah blue . . . the color of trust.

Everlasting love!

TEACH US, LORD

October 31, 2018

You created us as unique creatures with a purpose.  Sadly, instead of giving yoou glory for this and learning from one another, we listen to the evil one and behave wickedly!  Help us to reflect Your love and behave as one mutually supportive body in you as you intended and please forgive us for our failings, In Jesus’ holy name.  Amen

LIKE THE MOTHER BIRD

October 17, 2018

Just as a mother bird broods 

to protect her young . . .

giving them warmth,

safety,

covered with her love,

and when the time comes

sets them free

to do as they were created to do . . .

so, too, does our Creator God

love and protect us

in the shelter of His wings.

We may not see Him,

but His love, power, and grace

are with us always.

REST IN HIM

October 13, 2018

When I was a child,

I was more curious

than fearful of the

scary” monsters lurking under the bed.

No, not me . . .

What would scare me,

and break my heart

would be to have to live

one day . . . or one second

without your mighty presense

and your amazing love!

IMPATIENT FOR GRACE

October 2, 2018

I was certain the day was coming!

But kept waking up without

feeling deflated

for a gift belated.

Would it never come at all?

A few days . . .

months . . .

years . . .

then it happened “overnight!”

My gift of grace,

more than I ever dreamed of

and surely did not deserve

came to me

at just the right time!

I am forever thankful!
