His Word, My Lifeline

“But his delight is in the law of The Lord;
And in His law doth he meditate both day and night”
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
That bringeth forth His fruit in His season
Psalm 1-2,3
As Another day is done and coming to a close, and; I’m slowing down … Thanking God, for this heavenly weather. Just love the night breezes that grace my brow. A little meditation on Gods word tonight. I always enjoy life more when I spend quiet time in His word from the wee hours of the Mornin, noon or at twighlight time.
When I ponder His word I feel His fruit growing in me. Love Joy peace patience gentleness kindness longsuffering goodness meekness faith and temperance. They permeate my heart and caring for those around me wells up in my soul.

Dear Lord help me to know you more and more through your Holy
Spirit each day. To become more and more like you.
As you hit the pillow tonight
May you feel His touch tonight and
May you sleep in the arms of His unconditional love

I Need You, Lord

Lord Jesus, I thank You
For loving me
For continuing to refine me
You are the Author and the Finisher of my faith
I know that I don’t have all the answers
Much of the time
But You do
All true answers come from You
From Your perfect love
I seek your will
And not my own.
Although it is painful at times, in the learning
I know I’ll make it through
Deep in my heart
There is a rejoicing in my spirit
As I come forth as gold
All because of You

Hanging Grapes

Misty morning beautiful
Unobtrusive soft and pale
Out the window
Hanging grapes
Jelly for the gray catbird
A coat rack draped
In Comforts veil
Learns to turn with each new song
Wrapped quite tight with branches strong
In sync the filter of His light
To His greatness
Shining bright

Lords Love

“The Lord is my Shepherd
I shall not want”
Psalm 23-1

“Even strong lions go hungry
But those who trust in The Lord
Shall lack no good thing”
Psalm 34-10

Wishing you great new week friend
Chockfull of blessings
The Lords love hold you
And enfold you

Jesus, The Way Everlasting

Jesus The way Everlasting

When God is your Authority
Respect for others falls in line
With Harmony and happy people
Places, progress, things divine
When “I” is your Authority
Chaos clings and clouds the way
Stresses, holdouts, hungry days
Let Go let God lead you today

The Old Train

“In all your ways acknowledge Him.
And He shall direct your path.”
Proverbs 3:6

The mighty train is slowing down
He knows he’s at the bend
He thinks before he turns each way
Wise men evaluate
He waits to feel the track ahead
Round tables at the turns
Patience sees the light ahead
God’s path understood

Pink Carnations

I weave Carnations in my hat
A year or two they take me back
When golden olden days were new
They seem like nothing, at first glance
Humble, stiff, devoid of dance
Smell them twice
Voila, it’s spice
Austere and folksy, Vanilla brew
Unlike a rose, though sweet are you
When petals fall, so lightly strewn
Yet fade within one midnight star
Those pink Carnations loved me more
They chose to stay intact and sure
A tad bit longer lived in lore
When I was young and so demure
I think I like them much, much more


Night Song

I love the night
The gentle calming of the breeze
The rocking of the porch swing
The shelter of the trees
The blessing of the darkness
When another day is gone
All is thanks and praise to Him
The Lover of our song

Wishing you a restful sleep tonight
I pray for you
For a restorative rest
A healing touch from Jesus
To the innermost part of your being
A santuary sweet
The comfort of sitting at His feet
He never sleeps
He is watching over you
As you sleep
Night friend

“If you lie down, you will not be afraid
When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet”
Proverbs 3:24

Morning Ballad of Praise

Come a time it’ll soon be o’er
In the twinkling of an eye
We’ll meet Him in the clouds of glory
Our troubles will fly bye
We share in Christ’s long suffering
He saves we walk new sod
Fan the flame His power strong
His mercies gift of God
For come a time it’ll soon be over
In the twinkling of an eye
We’ll meet Him in the clouds of glory
Our troubles will fly bye

Not for the faint of heart in learning
Holy Spirit strength of dawn
By His word we reap His Victory
Faiths opposition gone

For come a time it’ll soon o’er
In the twinkling of an eye
We’ll meet Him in the clouds of glory
Our troubles will fly bye

Morning ballad of praise

Release the Load

Stopped at a country yard sale that was down the the road a spell. An older lady timidly emerged from the wood. I took a likin to an old ice fishing bucket she had tucked away under the table. so happy she was to pass that treasure on to me! I said “my what a beautiful smile you have” Got to talkin bout this and that and one thing led to another; after I told her that I noticed her beautiful skirt was homemade with the prettiest tapestry material I’d ever seen. That conversation moved to … I don’t feel beautiful or happy. I inquired of her … Could she point out to me, perhaps why. She said “I made a mistake a long time ago and hurt someone. the person has long since died and I told her that I was sorry. I wonder if God will ever forgive me. I am married again now but my mistake still haunts me and weighs heavy upon my heart. We certainly talked in more detail, but what really mattered is the story she needed to know.
A man was walking down the road carrying a big load on His shoulders. A Stranger came in a travel truck with lots of other people inside, just like himself and said “would you like a lift?” The man said oh … Yes Thank you Sir, I am so tired and my shoulders are so sore. A ways down the road, the Stranger looked back in on His passenger and said ” Oh son … we have been traveling for miles and I see that you are sitting, but still your bags are still on your shoulders.” The man said “Oh … You were so kind to me, I didn’t want to give you all of my weight.”
You see I said to her when God forgives … he wants to take all of your weight that so easily beset you child and you are forgiven completely just for the asking.
Be loved friend k
