Thank You God for a brand new day.
Thank You for the sunshine.
It’s good to let the sunshine shine on your face.
In the winter, you need the suns nourishment.
Sometimes, you can bundle up and take a walk in the park,
and just lift your face toward the sun.
It’s good to slow down and regroup your thoughts. You always get an even better view of something second time around.
Take for instance Did you ever notice that when you read something for the first time;
you can quickly ascertain the meaning, but if you read the same thing in a little while you can get a more rounded view of what is being said?
Taking the time to slow down and meditate on His word for a few minutes a day, during your break is good for your soul.
As you submit your thoughts to God moment by moment, it honors Him and thus bringing glory to His Name.
And don’t forget from time to time, to look in the mirror.
Remember to feel the freedom His love for you brings.
Breathe in long … Breathe out slow, now your calmer and good to go!
Your own uniqueness is beautiful in that mirror
Weaving a path for you through the stresses …
Take Him with you all through the day to meet the challenges
With a clear view
Have a great day friend k
p.s. and remember …
If the suns not out; look in the mirror again
And you’ll see the sun

Empathy Tea

When two collide
In a twining interleave
In my book they should sit down
Over tea and unwind
All perceived emotions
Setting iron to iron
Both will be Happy
If they just spend the time
Not to shut out offender
Or offendee in silence
Empathy cries
I will talk with you
I will ask for forgiveness
I will forgive
I will learn and be refined
I will save lives with love
-
Empathy Rise
Like leaven
Instilled
Into the mixture
As in the baking of bread
If we see it fall
We’ll knead the dough once again
We’ll flute the ends together
Till completely sealed
Serenity mends
In time my friend
When deep calls unto deep
We will call upon Thee
Together enthralled
In healing beauty
We’ll put on the boil
Into porcelain vessels
Empathy go forth
The Teacups
Three people strong
Three stitches more
Three white beds
To sleep in the Hall

Winter

IMG_0072
Autumn she’s gone
With her last breath
Leaving a caveat
Winter she came
In a whirlwind
No less a lady
Meeker for the wear
Biting gale force winds
Finally past her tears and fears
Nestling neath snowcapped evergreens
Cover for the Fallow deer
Protecting her
From danger here

My Everything

Jesus you are, my everything.
I’m so thankful, that I have you
If I had alI, that could ask for
In this world of sparkling jewels
Crows with eyes that can’t but lust
Moths and rust would then corrupt
What thieves could steal on a cold cold night
I’d rather be warm at Your footstool
And be content with You
I would have but nothing
If I had not You
I have everything in You Jesus
My Everything
Is You

The Ups and Downs

Bright and Sunny and very windy Mornin!
And again, our weather’s been all over the place
the last several days.
One day we bottom out at -10 degrees
Next day we climb to 55 degrees!
Tonight we’ll be going to 2!
Who can take such swings in temperature
-
Our lives can be that way sometimes.
We wonder if we will make it through the swings.
A look at the past and we can see how many
ups and downs, we’ve been through.
Rest assured The Lord has sustained us through them all.

Peter was walking on water until he took his eyes of Jesus.
We only have to keep our eyes on Him, and everything’ll come out right as rain in the end.

Matt 14:29-31
“And He said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship,
he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the
wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink,
he cried, saying, “Lord, save me”. And immediately Jesus
stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him,
“O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?”
And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.”

Wishing you a great day friend, with His stable trust
above the fray, full of the peace and Joy of Christ k

Honor and Praise

If there be any Honor
If there be any Praise
Let it be for Lord Jesus
Who at Calvary lay
-
He is our Strong Tower
Saves, loves, protects,
He lifts us high in love
All of our days
-
He sets our feet
Upon solid ground
He holds us tightly
Safely and sound
-
When in pain we call out
Our yearning is heard
He heals what is broken
We soar like a bird
-
If there be any honor
If there be any praise
It comes from Lord Jesus
Loves warm rose bouquet
