Answered Prayer

Hello Dear Faithful Friends and Followers,

It’s been awhile since I have written for this blog consistently. I remember the days of writing every single morning and sharing…it seems like a memory now. Part of this is my schedule is a little less roomy. Another part is I think I am like Peter looking at the water, instead of the Lord, and I don’t always see clearly. I see all the obstacles- the site that needs updating, the time to write, edit, revise a post, the sharing to Social Media, the critical voices within my own head  and without, all the steps and none of the joy I used to have when I was so excited to simply share what God had shown me as I went about my days and weeks.

All that to say…here I am.

A simple share on a blog that is woefully in need of updating from a girl in the smallest state sharing as she goes, this morning’s meanderings, slightly edited, moderately revised, but absolutely imperfect, because – after all…that ‘s how I roll most days.

Without further ado, from my journal and heart this morning…may it be a blessing to you.

A Holiday Meditation for All Seasons

We have so many things to be thankful for each and every day. But, today, as I reflected on the miracles I have witnessed  this year, the prayers answered and God’s goodness I felt led to read 2 Peter 1:3-4. Maybe God knew I needed this reminder, as we head into “The Most Wonderful Time of The Year”. He who created me knows me well, leads me faithfully and fulfills all my longings. Sometimes He does it by allowing words to be offered as a reminder of His indwelling presence,reaffirming the beautiful truths handed down to me…us all.

 

I pray these words, bless you and offer up encouragement for the approaching “season”. I struggled with the title a bit, and at last it came to me…this was not just a  “Holiday Meditation”, or a prayer for the assault to come from within and without through retailers, marketing media, and our own fleshly desires, but truly a meditation for all seasons.

 

God bless you this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!

May He be your contentment and joy!

Rescued From The Curse By His Grace Moment by Moment

Standing at the kitchen counter, sleep still permeating my eyes I feel for the coffee pot, prepare the pot, as I have done so many mornings. I squint adjusting to the light well aware I’m being stalked by the morning pet parade. Three sets of eyes are staring up at me. I pour dry food into the two cat bowls, grab the dog’s leash from the coat rack and head to the door with a prancing Reindeer. Once we are out into February’s chilly morning darkness and at the canine appointed place of business, I stare up at the dark blue sky over us. I gaze at the stars. Standing in the starlight, surrounded by winter’s stillness I’m startled awake as I take inventory of my heart.

Just for Today (A Poem of Thanksgiving)

 

 

 

Today I offer a few words I wrote back in 2011 when I started blogging and sharing my thoughts online. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, going through…may these words be words that edify, and multiply thanksgivings in your soul.
