nothing.

“The wonderful thing about praying is that you leave a world of not being able to do something, and enter God’s realm where everything is possible. He specializes in the impossible. Nothing is too great for His almighty power. Nothing is too small for His love.” ~ Corrie Ten Boom   I love this quote so much…because I love this truth that takes the eyes off of me and my abilities (or lack thereof), and puts it on God andRead more

Carry on…

Praying for some dear friends and through some things this morning and found myself singing these words….  I love that God doesn’t pull back from the difficult things in life. He calls us to draw near to Him, to trust Him, to walk in His ways. He calls us to greater things than what we can imagine…but sometimes the pathway isn’t what we’d imagine or choose, that’s for sure. I love that He can use all things. ALL things. TheRead more

take it

“Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.” ~Elisabeth Elliott   I’ll take it to the Throne of Grace I’ll meet God there to seek His face My refuge will be His embrace as I meet Him there I will lay my burdens there and cast them to His Sovereign Care I’ll trust that as He hears my prayer I’ll rise and walk by faith I’ll rise and walk by grace I’ll rise and I’ll beRead more

as a child…

Gilded chandeliers on high Columns reaching to the sky Centuries old this wondrous sight I wonder what God sees… Golden statues, candles’ flames Crowds that come and say The Name None to folly, none to blame I wonder what God sees… Folded hands, heart open wide Searching soul with closed eyes Praying words too deep to hide I’m thinking this God sees… …this young child kneeling there hands held out folded in prayer, kneeling down and casting cares I’m thinkingRead more

Sunrise, Sunset

So yesterday began with beautiful sights. It was the whole ‘Super Blue Blood Moon” Lunar Eclipse morning. And here’s the “Super Blue Blood Moon” eclipse. Pretty cool sights all before 7:00 this morning. Sunrise On the way to work, I always pass a beautiful spot where the sun is usually just peeking out while I’m passing by.  I beat it by a few minutes today. The day was a good day. It was my first day back after being sickRead more

Standing Still

I can hear it before I see it.  Some days it’s louder and faster and more powerful. Other days it’s slower and  more quiet and peaceful. But I can always hear it before I see it.  I know plants can’t hear. But I’m sure there’s some sense of the water raging by. And spiders hanging by threads inches from the waters edge….I’m sure that they are aware of the powerful force of the waves beneath them. And rocks,…more like boulders,Read more

A Slow Unfolding

If a sunflower could wink, I think this is what it would look like. It’s slowly unfolding its petals and unveiling what’s beneath a little bit at a time. Kind of feel like life is like that sometimes. Sometimes it takes a good good long while to see the bud turn to a bloom, and then the bloom to surrender all the petals to reveal what’s beneath. Sometimes it takes awhile to see hard work pay off, lessons be learned,Read more
