All God’s Dreams

All God’s dreams

Keep all your dreams
God has planned for you
But don’t let the world
Overshadow the view

With a heavenly mind
God’s wisdom abounds
Your feet firmly planted
Upon stable ground …

With Humble discernment
Remember your roots
Your faith in the good Lord
Will bear good fruits

Meditate long
God’s word, His truth
Come to Him as a child
As heard in your youth

Trusting in Jesus
He’s right there for you
Giving all to the Savior
Your dreams will come true

Echoes of God’s Love

In God’s window of my dreams
Yellow, bright the sunshine in the store
All the dolphins dancing round me tightly
We’re breaking through the golden doors

The old familiar whistle calls me
Sounds of rest on shining shores
Echoes heard in unison by loyal chums
With kettles, bowls, drums galore

A victory song inside my heart
God’s glory bellows through the gate
My soul is quiet; I am satisfied,
For I have learned to live and wait

Lord We need Your Help

He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit; than he that taketh a city.”
Proverbs 16-32

Gods’ grace friend, is greater than all the stresses that come our way, and greater than all of the mistakes we make when we miss the mark in dealing with them. God loves us, and he wants us to put our total trust in Him.

I am so thankful that God gives me His grace.

Friend, even though we are imperfect and do things wrong, He loves us. God teaches those whom He loves by disciplining us. You heard the phase ” If I didn’t love you, I wouldn’t discipline you”.

Jesus is patiently waiting in line for us to call to Him for the power to walk in His ways and live the way He wants us to live. Our heart, soul and mind must be always looking to Him. He put His life on the line for us. He did everything the Father in Heaven asked Him to do, even to die on the cross for our sins. Oh how we need to be like Jesus.

I want to be filled with His ways and not my own.

With all of the stressful situations that we are going through, Lord help us to obey you in the tough situations; and to display Your love and Your grace; one to another always. This kind of attitude requires steadfastness and the diligence of prayer without ceasing for a mighty touch from God through His Holy Spirit’s love and power.

This is what I want for Christmas; the fruits of the Holy Spirit, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control. They’re ours, just for the asking. A simple prayer. That sounds like this to me.
“Jesus I need You” “Help me to love like You do.”

At this time of year, things can be even more stressful than normal. Reach out and touch someone with His grace today. Let us put Gods eyes, ears and heart on, full of His mercy. With His benevolence and extravagant grace strewn in the path of every weary traveler that we see along the way. We all need The Savior in His abundant love. Thank you for each moment of this joyous Season.
Have a great and grace-filled Day friend,
You are so loved k

Morning Bells

If you can look in my eyes
And honestly say
You never knew me
I could fade away

But, something inside
Rings in the midnight silence
Telling me
You’re still in the wings
That’s why my heart still sings for you

When a story begins
How sad it is when a story begins
But it has no end

2x

Amidst all the clutter
And the confusion
Do you feel any emptiness?
There’s a voice you’ll hear
If deep calls unto deep
Of cleansing waters
And a shining shore

But, Who made you stumble
And falter in the way
Have bitterness and clamor in the heart
Made a place to stay

Morning bells want to ring
Morning bells want to ring
Morning bells want to ring
In your hearts today

A Sons Love of His Mother


I found this beautiful card tucked inside a box secured.
A card, with a beautiful poem on it
It reads something like this, through the mist.

I’m going to love you forever
Can you handle that?”

From your Son Daniel

I had remembered these precious words; but to find them was so very special

The note reads on …

Graceful mind of servants fill the head
Of the hallowed halls of Griswold
Glass and carpet meld to form this simple manor
Of blues and wood
Where love and family live
In a harmonious timely routine
That always changes
The great does leave her mornings
To support her blooming children
She Honors them within their individual minds
Because her tasks are each fulfilled
Without any of the other knowing
And she rarely asks for any help from the busy kin she rears
Respect permeates the soul of this humble fortress
And she’ll never worry about the loss of any good thing
Because her prayers are longing and sincere
The God of Abraham honors her faithful service …
Her family loves her
