When Your Days Feel Unspiritual- Turn Left

 WP_20150522_07_58_06_Pro (1)

May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5 :23-24

Friday morning, after dropping my daughter off, I turned left instead of right as I pulled out of the High School parking lot. I don’t always. Often I surrender myself to the daily routines that define my life presently. Every once in a while my routine gets interrupted by…life. But hey, I strive to keep a steady pace and confess the need for the security of knowing there are things that need to be done and the fact that I need to do them. The drumbeat of life beats on.

But, another week has passed and Spring is caressing my cheeks through the open car window, so I do the best thing I can in the beauty of this particular  morning. Before heading back into another day, I turn left.


The Aroma of God’s Love


As a Rose fills a room with its fragrance, so will God’s love fill our lives.

The Fullness of God (JYJWJ)


For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

Colossians 2:9-10

 You pour the coffee, get your Bible and journal, grab that favorite pen and find a quiet spot. You open your Bible feeling unsure. Your mind wanders to your To Do list and you fumble for  a task pad, writing down that thing to be done, only to realize that your mind has begun to assault you with the 14 other things you know you need to do and suddenly instead of feeling peace FULL, you are feeling peace deprived, distracted and thinking that this quiet time stuff might be for the birds; because no matter how hard you try to make it happen…it just never happens in a way that works for you. As a matter of fact, it leaves you feeling either like an epic failure or like one more thing to do on an already overwhelming list of things to do, that ain’t getting done either.


How NOT to Hear God (Journaling Your Journey with Jesus)

Rhode Island beauty! Looking up from my morning walk, I was sheltered under this beautiful flowering tree! What is it? I know I should know...but alas, do not. ;)

“God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which he must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves.”

Good Morning, Friends. It is just before ten in the morning here on the East coast along the shore of Little Rhody. Spring has been whispering sweet nothings in our ears here all week. The neighborhood mantra about yard work seems to be “I’m so far behind”. I have heard this from just about every neighbor in the hood while walking the dog through our fairly pristine, in actuality, tourist/college neighborhood. Truth be told, the only yard that falls short is probably ours! But, let me not digress or sulk about my lack of domestic and gardening giftedness.
