AT ALL TIMES GIVE THANKS

August 6, 2018

Smiling,

The cloud rained down.

The droplets kissed the dry land.

Refreshed and blessed,

The blades of grass gazed heavenward      

And the sun began to shine.

My soul is raining!

Stubborn sun, why must you shine?

Tears refresh the joy.

For the Light costumd by darkness,

I thank you, Lord.

For the beauty I know but cannot see,

I thank you, Lord.

For the music I cannot hear yet still I dance

And thank you, Lord.

For your secret healing of my every need,

I thank you, Lord.

For living in this broken human’s heart,

I thank you, Lord.

For using me anyway,

All my love and thanks and praise to you.

Amen

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!

NO LONGER UNSEEN

January 14, 2017

Open your heart to faith

and pray with hope

unceasingly.

You will be amazed

at the previously unseen miracles

Love has richly showered you with,

which you have taken for granted.

It is never to late to bow down,

to say thanks,

to share the good news.

Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.
Isaiah 26:7-9

 

 


UNLOCK THE SECRET TO JOY

November 19, 2016

bread of life

 

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.    -Melody Beattie

 


Attitude of Gratitude

August 23, 2016

Little flower,

petals swaying in the breeze,

bows her  head

as rain comes.

Then she looks to the sun

in joyful thanks!
