Praising God for theGift of a New Day

July 14, 2019

sunny day

 

It’s been raining long and hard

And gray skies were all I could see.

But today is different,

Or perhaps I am,

For I see a bright spot

Glowing through the

Clouds of morning.

I shall dance!

Dancing with the raindrops

And celebrating the sun

Am I

For today is

A new day

And the Lord has blessed it!

OPEN YOUR HEART!

February 22, 2019

I remember a company I worked for and was blessed to do so for many years.  BUT On rainy, gloomy days it seemed as if when one wore black and came in grumpy, soon the entire office was disagreeable and it was doubtful many were aware of this, nor had a good reason why. What a change a slight bit of effort to bless one another surely would have made!

If we know the truth of the following words and that they apply to each of us created in His image, AS WE ARE, why must the hate continue to defeat love? Where is peace?

14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.[a]
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well. -Psalm 139:14

JOURNEY WITH JESUS

February 16, 2019

The path,

this sacred journey,

is filled with sharp turns .. .

corners around which we cannot see,

but oh, the beauty He has placed there

just waiting for us!

Keep moving forward

with Him!

BETTER EVEN THAN FLOWERS

February 4, 2019

Same old battle! That’s how we all feel some times . . . my body isn’t 21 anymore and some flaws cannot be fixed.  Am I the only one who remembers how easy things once had been? I picked up a book on praise because I was so grumpy I couldn’t find words within me but words aloud came from my tablet all by themselves, it seemed, saying “You like Christian Music” and the first song playing was my miracle for today.  I don’t know the artist nor did I know the song, nor even choose to hear, but listen I did.  The LORD CHOSE IT!  It spoke love to my soul assuring me I am never alone,I will be fine, He has a plan, I am loved . . . I still don’t know the song.  I was too wrapped up in His love, but when I need a hug I know He will be right with me!
