THE JOYFUL JOURNEY

July 22, 2016

 

watered trees

It was a beautiful day

When we began

But that was long ago.

I didn’t expect time to pass so slowly,

Nor the path to be so rocky

Or so steep.

I noticed though,

As I lay resting,

How sweet the grass and flowers smelled.

Such colors!

I never really noticed their beauty before.

So many varieties of flowers!

The sounds!

As I try to rush I miss them,

But at rest I hear the trickling of a stream

And the calls of wild things!

So vast a symphony,

I cannot name them all!

I love my journey with Him!

He calms my fear,’Guides and guards me!

My greatest joy?

Sitting close by the fire

And just listening

And being!

Purpose

The tiny little bud

lost among the leaves

reached for the Son

and was forever changed!

God’s Grace

July 20, 2016

We pray

We get wrapped up in our request,

we wonder when the answer will come.

Suddenly,

our larder flows with milk and honey.

Our response all too often?

“I asked for a drink of Water!”

He forgives,

He loves,

He provides,

always.

daddy and me

 

I can remember Daddy holding me close in his arms and feeling happy, loved, and safe. I remember a little girl I loved to pieces (and still do even if she’s grown up) who loved to be with me and snuggle close. God feels that way too. He wants me to bring ALL of me to Him and to snuggle close, not just to cry out when I’m scared or lost.
