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!

THE BIRD PROFESSES

You never whine nor complain

and your sweet melody daily lifts my soul

and my spirit dances

regardless of my woes.

I learn much from you!

HOW TO MAKE A BAD DAY GOOD

June 2, 2018

FIND A REASON TO REJOICE TODAY!

NOT AS HARD AS YOU THINK!

 

I get stressed, especially when I multitask and demand too much from myself!  The Lord doesn’t give us more than we can handle – we do!

  • Take a praise break!   Can’t thiink of anything good about your day?
  • relax your muscles
  • breath deeply
  • close your eyes
  • say “Lord, thanks for loving me!”
  • repeat until chest tightness relaxes
  • REJOICE!

 

 

 


ALWAYS GIVE THANKS!

For the Light costumed 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

in thanksgiving

for all the amazing sunrises

I have somehow overlooked!

When We Call


Have Faith, BUT . . .

November 23, 2016

I have been facing BIG challenges for a while, as many of us do.  People have “encouraged” me saying”have faith” followed by “most people never get help for . .. ” or “the new president is getting rid of . . . ” Fortunately I DO have faith, as did my family before me.

Limits?  Not my Lord!

My late Uncle Bob had only one arm.  As a child he played ball, rode his bike . . . he grew up and joined the yaught club, was a great golfer, personally rebuilt his house . . . I guess they forgot to tell him he could never do those things . . .
