YOU WERE CREATED WITH A PURPOSE

June 29, 2018

We trampled on the dandylions,

wishing they were gone!

Then, someone saw them anew . . .

HE DID NOT CREATE US WITH LABELS

June 29, 2018

Unlabeled

The happy little dandelion

growing in the field

smiled toward heaven

all the while.

No one ever said

“you’re just a weed”

so he had no doubt

that he was loved.

Perhaps

there is a lesson

here for me?

WE ARE BORN WITH OPEN MINDS  AND LOVING HEARTS.

LET’S REMEMBER HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS!

 


HE IS ALL I NEED

I am called to soar

Broken wings cannot stop me

He enables me

FOCUS AND REFLECT

March 12, 2018

When we keep our eyes

focused on Christ,

we cannot help but reflect

His love and grace

on this hungry world

which so badly needs Him!

THE GIFT OF THE JOURNEY

December 20, 2017

I heard the sweet sound of a bird

calling out from a high branch.

No answer,

he didn’t give up.

He showed no anger.

He listened . . .

he called again.

He sang.

He enjoyed his perch,

then called again

and waited some more.

He performed daily tasks while waiting.

The cycle repeated.

THEN,

the right time came

and he got the Word .. .

He sang with such joy!

Love is patient.

Love never fails!

Love is eternal.

SILENT AND BREATHLESS!

December 16, 2017

The service was coming to a close…

all was dark and silent;

but for the glow of a single candle,

much like the star on that special night.

Darkness soon changed to a joyous glow

as we all shared in the light!

Each hand held a lit candle

and each heart held the best gift of all . ..

an invitation to eternal life!

NOT JUST AN ORDINARY DAY!

December 8, 2017

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.
