IT’S YOUR CHOICE

August 20, 2018

The day began with birds singing

A wakeup melody of praise.

I joined them in spirit

With words of my own

Then proceeded on with my day.

Smiling,

I made coffee

And fed my body

As my soul had been,

And smiled still.

There is turmoil all around me

And though I try

I cannot change it all

But I do not have to let it change me.

Sing  . . .

Smile . . .

Praise . .  .

I choose joy.

Sitting At Your Feet

August 4, 2018

My thoughts just drifted back to my childhood and to how much I loved sitting on the floor at Nana’s feet, feeling unconditional love and listening to her stories, memories, advice, and so much more.  Time was meaningless as I knew such love and acceptance and encouragement and lost all sense of time.

How fitting to immediately find this before me! “Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is his name: Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”  – Jeremiah 33:2-3

 

Can I have an

AMEN?

 

 

 

 


TEAM JESUS

July 9, 2018

I tried to be all things for everyone.  Thinking back, I realize none of us were intended for that.  Hmmm . . . was I thinking of my Lord, my neighbors, or myself?  In my foolishness, I thought the answer was Jesus.  I remember reading the 23rd Psalm and thinking “STUPID SHEEP.” Me, I had it all together . . . NOT!   I  was all about Martha!

Those sheep loved the Master, served Him well, and were lovingly cared for – Facing hunger or fear or uncertainty of any kind was no real problem.   The Master (Shepherd) who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask had it all together since long before we were we!  Those sheep had it good!  THIS SHEEP is gonna  follow the Shepherd far more closely than she used to!

Ephesians 3:20-21 

20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

 

GOOD COMPANY

Ah, those green pastures

Where did the still waters go?

Good, the Shepherd’s near!
