When you love somebody, tell them!  Sometimes words DO matter!  What you or I believe to be obvious is seldom the same thing!  Life is unpredictable – tell ’em today!

 

(If you were wondering, Beany and I speak the same languages! He loves me!)


FAITH HARVESTED

August 22, 2016

The clouds lingered long.

Will the light never return?

The dampness of my tears,

The ache in my limbs,

The longing for something more . . .

All forgotten in an instant

As my gaze found the sun!

HOPE OVER FEAR

August 18, 2016

mood glow

If I close my eyes,

fearing the angry looking cloud,

I shall miss the brightness of the sun

and the calmness of the glowing moon!

I AM HIS VESSEL

August 17, 2016

 

It is not through the efforts

Of my bread pan

That today’s loaves are ready

And others will be fed.

Astonished With Delight – YOUR STORIES!

August 6, 2016

WHO among us does not want to be astonished with delight!?

 

I recently challenged you to share a story about  time you were ASTONISHED WITH DELIGHT then, in the comment section, provide a link so we can share our blogs to new folks as they read the delightful example!   To Participate, click here for the original post.  I will add your post/blog link to this list!  These moments are sometimes earth shattering, but are often a small act of kindness.  Share your joy!

A great example comes from SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS who shows us that the flood from a hurricane can become a flood of joy in the following story!

 We went to NC one year right after Hurricane Katrina. The following Hurricane was still lingering. The hotel we booked was flooded, were told to drive inland 7 miles before attempting to find a hotel. All the diver shops didn’t take reservation. But a group of marine was passing by and wanted to dive. My husband was happy and lucky to have this group coming by. He had the deepest dive in that trip.  Be sure to read  SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS  for more uplifting writings, as well as any of the following:

THE RHUBARB PIE PARABLE – ANOTHER TINY TEACHER

August 5, 2016

I, like most of you, have been thinking a lot about the sad and frightening news stories of late.  They seem to grow in number.  I love children and the ones I listen to give me hope for the future.  This is my second tiny teacher post in two days . . . perhaps a series is coming!

 

I recall this conversation, but not the source. . . still, it needs sharing!

CHILD:  Daddy, what’s sin?

(Daddy explains)

CHILD:  Then why would people choose to sin?

DADDY:  I guess some people crave sin like others crave rhubarb pie!

CHILD:  I don’t like rhubarb pie!

DADDY:  Me either!
