A SMILE TO START THE DAY!

July 10, 2018

One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

THE SECOND VERSE

July 2, 2018

Oh darkness,

you cannot hide

my seemingly elusive joy.

For,

in my heart exists the Lamp

to guide me to it

So I will sing on!

GOD’S HELPER

June 24, 2018

I do not really have much of any real family – the blood kind, but still I am blessed with dear friends and treasured memories-especially of my Dad.  He would call himself “just a country boy” but to me he was so much more.  He didn’t have fancy degrees or expensive cars.  A trip, when I was little, was to go to the barber shop with him- they gave me lollipops!  A really big deal was Sunday!  Daddy loved church. He wasn’t a preacher.  He just quietly served like nobody else I have ever known!  He never met anyone who was not a friend and if anyone was in trouble, stranger or not – naughty or nice – he was there to help.  He never spoke of it, never bragged – he loved as Jesus loved.  I want to be just  like him and like Him!

FOLLOWING HIM

Strolling at the shore

waves of blessings at high tide

You showed me the way

MISSIONARY ON FOUR LEGS!

The Bible illustrates much that is vital using sheep but I am not a shepherdess; I take care of Scrappy and she loves and cares for me!  A dog’s life is generally simple if she is a pet.  Not unlike perhaps a sheep but I believe dogs know love . . . and I have learned and felt the Love of the Lord through my pet.  The photo here looks like prayer time to me.  Who can say otherwise?  Our God is Mighty and blesses us through ALL creation . . . love is patient, love is kind . . . and sometmes love has fur!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  1 Corinthians 13:4

THE CHOICE

The sun rises each morning.

Whether or not I choose

to look up and

let it warm my soul

is entirely up to me!
