Someone is bragging on you…
Affirming words are my primary love language. Encouraging and sharing with people the positive I see in them is just a natural extension of who I am. It is a wonderful thing, edifying to the soul, to know you’ve played a role on some level in making another person feel wonderful…feel special…to know how much they matter, are cared for and not overlooked.
Verbal Edification and Encouragement Equals Empowerment.
Last night is a night I loved.
It was an ordinary Monday night, but I
When loves walks in you can feel it…
Unfortunately only women will able to relate to this, but if you’ve ever been pregnant you know what I mean. Once the baby in gestation gets to around the 16 weeks you may begin to feel the baby move. As the baby grows the feelings get stronger and you can literally discern the shape of the baby. My oldest had her toes wrapped around my ribs for the entire third trimester and I could caress the heel of her foot quite discernibly. I
Never Had a Better Friend-
The Lord has striped me in many ways.
Yet, He preserves each and every one of my days.
He took away so much that mattered to me
and in the process grafted me more tightly into His Tree.
He drew me near and showered me with blessings from above.
He gave me increase in my capacity to Love.
He showed me His devotion and care
Yet I know He will not only stop there.
He took me as a seed and planted me in the Earth.
He provided the water of Salvation in Jesus
Though tears come through the Night…
Joy comes in the morning.
I bet that could also read Joy comes in the Mourning….grief gives way and births something amazing when we are married to God.
It literally JUST dawned on me as I was writing it!!! (No pun intended by using the word dawn 🤭)
I sent this thread to a friend who is grieving this morning. She replied that she has actually researched this and the word Morning. It is used both ways! So our Lord once again proves He has thought of everything.
My pen is really just an ongoing love letter to heaven. My pen is also a love letter from heaven to humanity. So let’s just start this right off–
You are truly and earnestly loved. Perhaps this is difficult for you to grasp or receive. Yes, I understand, pure love can be very hard to receive. Most have little experience with it. But when it comes~do you feel that? When it comes it kind of disturbs, but in a way you kind of like. Things inside of
“As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.”
I really think this quote is cute. I’m not a golfer (yet), but I’ve been a few times and I kind of think it’s a hobby I could learn and be challenged and enjoy. But for now it’s a someday thing because I’m in the thick of paying for kids schooling and sports and some other things I’m working on…
My Dad is a golfer. Has been for years.
God has shown me time and time again—
When we, when you, when I, when all of us face difficulty, opposition and the oppressive hands of every enemy of God—
We aren’t to ask “why?”
In the midst of trouble, we need to look around and see what kind of seeds on the ground can be found.
We can KNOW that God is cultivating.
He is fertilizing.
He is creating a move of His Glory that is tantalizing.
He is marinating and soaking His Goodness and Favor in a situation, in a foundation, in a person, in
“In the same way, count yourself dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” Romans 6:11-12
Lord, bless us each with the contentment that surpasses understanding. Let the Peace I have found in each moment , that wellspring of Hope I’ve tapped into, flow like a fountain well allowing all who are thirsty and dry and in need of refreshment, to drink liberally from my inkwell. Let them get tanked, drenched, saturated, in the most Glorious of ways. Amen.
One of the best things you can do in a dry
Poetic Prose of Adoration. Penned early a.m., Monday 3/25/19
I confess, I love writing, but the prose are my favorite. They bleed more of the essence of me, heart and soul and my affections released for the One worthy to be Adored. I named this one Canopy though I mention the word not once with the prose of my pen.
Canopy because of what it represents. A Canopy of Hope is an effective covering for the heart. Blessed, Refreshed, Replenished, Loved…
all create a Haven…
God bless your heart today with Valor to Conquer
Have you ever been truly sorrowful and sorry over something? Have you ever watched God take the very thing that brought you sorrow and use it to His benefit? So unique are the ways and will of God.
In the Old Testament, back to Genesis, there is the ancient story of Adam and Eve—the first recorded humans. They lived in a lush garden and had every luxury at their fingertips. There was only one exclusion from their access, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. This tree has long
