YOU RAISE ME UP

May 19, 2018

Finding Love

I primped and perfected

or so I thought

but felt nothing.

I floated in an ocean of if only

and why not

as the waves grew higher

and brought me down.

You reached out,

you lifted me up,

you loved me.

You saw your beloved

absent of all those doubts

and insecurities.

The waters stilled

and as I looked at my reflection in them

I saw you.

ARE YOU A CARROT OR A PEA?

March 20, 2017

Grocery shopping can be vexing.

In order to obtain what we need, to meet health restructions, etc., we must read every label, hope for full and clear disclosure, yet still discover we have not seen enough to judge.

WHY then, knowing only God can know a human heart, do we persist in placing a label on one another?

If folks see it without searching, they will click and follow!  UPDATE your site from the ADMIN section.  Leave a comment if you need clearer guidance!

 


TECHNOLOGY DESTROYS RELATIONSHIPS!

October 8, 2015

Technology makes so many things quicker, easier, and more efficient and we often hear people speak of the past as “oh, before . . .(insert your favorite site).” One thing technology and social NETWORKING sites do not improve is relationships! In these days of efficiency we have become too busy for relationships, for love, for being together, and for so much more . . . constantly claiming we are too busy for “that.”.

Why?

Efficient technology should free us, not consume us! I love you, my friends.

  • Smiley images will never replace touching you
  • photographs of a loaf of bread will never replace breaking bread with you.
  • Texting will never replace sitting in my livingroom with you.

We are more accessible than ever, and lonelier as well.

Time to recharge the batteries in our hearts!

Song of the Day – Tuesday July 19, 2011

July 19, 2011

Mercy?  Gosh, that is a concept that is so  hard to grasp!  I mean, if you are on a baseball team and you fail, then you’re suddenly benched and maybe worse – maybe you’re off the team.  If you work in an office and your boss finds fault with your performance,  you may be fired.  Disagree with a friend?  You might lose the relationship with your friend.  I could go on, but this isn’t about losing – it’s about finding . . . finding love and mercy as you’ve never known it.  Where?  From whom?  From our loving God who loves us no matter what and His mercy never stops!  How much does He love us?  Listen to this song: 

East to West by Casting Crowns

Believe it!  He loves us this much!
