The sky is so large

Yet we often see just clouds

He gave so much more

HUNGRY FOR MORE THAN BREAD?

September 28, 2016

Daily Bread . . .

The Scent of Distraction

“There’s nothing I can do . . . “

Counting out cups of flour.

“How can I fix this mess I’m in . . . “

Measuring the salt,

Adding sugar.

“I’ve got nothing left . . . “

Sprinkling the yeast.

“It’s hopeless . . . “

Pounding the dough.

“I’m tired of feeling so . . . “

Noticing the scent filling the room.

“When will I ever . . . “

Absently placing the luscious loaves

On the counter.

“Hmmm . . .

Maybe a small slice . . .”

A little bit of butter  . . .

“Here, have one.  I made extra.”

Smiles.

Bread for today

He has plans for tomorrow . . .

“now, where was I?”

Off track

but now thankful!

He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.

KNOW YOUR PLACE!

September 27, 2016

The phrase “know your place” CAN be greatly encouraging!  Many of us living in this world spend time and energy being so discouraged, but take heart!

If you are still this side of the veil, you are UNFINISHED!  God  is with you and has great plans for you!  Talk to HIM!

YOU Decide!

September 24, 2016

I Have Decided!

I just read the words “hope is a way of seeing.” In a physical sense, how I see may seem beyond my control yet it is not. My heart soul, and mind are involved. I can look out my window and see untidy landscaping I am unable to change or I can look up at branches of leaves swaying in the September mild breeze, at the blue sky, the absence of clouds, and feel blessed. My choice!

YESTERDAY’S GONE!

September 23, 2016

Why do we persist

in holding so tightly

to yesterday?

Whether good or not,

it is recorded but closed to change!

To waste time

and energy

on yesterday,

to create a burden of tomorrow .. .

STOP!

The Divine is in the here and now!

Embrace  it!
