MORE THAN ENOUGH

May 27, 2017

I pray and I pray

“Lord, give me strength!”

All He did

was infuse me

with His love.

Thank you!

TOO HEAVY

May 24, 2017

We have been commanded to love our enemies.

When we refuse to pray for them,

we are holding hate in our hearts.

LET IT GO.

Give it to GOD!

Be free!

Why do we have no qualms about missing worship,

yet are so very quick to make the false claim that our prayers go unheard?

Thankfully, we are loved and forgiven!  – Martha LShaw


IN YOUR ARMS . . .

Dancing In The Spirit

As I rest in your embrace

your immeasurable outpouring of love

makes my spirit dance and sing

as I bask in your glory.

Together,

there is nothing we can’t do.

I am yours.

PEACE ON THE EDGE!

April 4, 2017

Just when you feel it all slipping away

and you are ready to let go,

you truly are on the very cusp of something GRAND!

 Hold on,  breathe deeply, keep praying, believe!

. . . AND YOU WERE THERE

March 23, 2017

I needed to be near you . . .

I chose this cathedral . . .

I heard the choir sing . . .

Your presence was unmistakable . . .

IT IS A REALLY BIG DEAL!

March 22, 2017

Acceptance

All too often I find this word to be avoided, to be considered negative, to be considered “here comes trouble!”  My response to this truth was “here comes another positive word gone NEGATIVE, what a pity!”

I looked acceptance up in the dictionary and found that a primary defining word was “favor.”  WOW!

The following blessing has been bestowed upon me many times, and I quote it from the BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER:

“The Lord bless you and keep you.

The Lord’s face shine on you with grace and mercy.

The Lord look upon you with favor

and give you peace. AMEN

My friends, acceptance is a REALLY BIG DEAL and I am sorry to say we as a culture are not very good at it.  We need to do better!
