The Way Beneath My Feet

 

How beautiful the way beneath my feet

Watching each step that I take

Can anything but joy feel my heart

To see all these natural creations

Given to us by God

pretty rocks

 

rocks hills

pretty rocks2

 

giving thanks always for everything
to God the Father
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Ephesians 5:20 (HCSB)

Being Thankful in all Things

As I have shared my experiences with many people, I have heard and been told many stories of how God has worked in some one’s life.  There is nothing God cannot do if we let Him.  We are to be thankful for all things.  We often do not understand our circumstances but if we trust Jesus we can be certain that the best of the situation will occur.   Being human, it may be hard for us to understand how it could be the best, but our trust and faith in Jesus assures us that we will be taken care of and that things will work out for the Glory of God, which is what we desire as Christians.   In  2 Corinthians 4:15,  we read , Indeed, everything is for your benefit, so that grace, extended through more and more people, may cause thanksgiving to increase to God’s glory.  (HCSB)

 

I Thank You Lord

Poetry, Praise, Thoughts Today

This is a poem of praise I wrote several years after the event that left me in a mind and body I did not know.  I knew if I did not do everything I could on each day I had been given, I was dishonoring God for giving me that day.  So this is not a recent event I am writing about, but I just decided to share it publicly.  My journey to this point has been long, and it was accomplished only with His help.

 

i thnak you Lord

Natural Beauty Inside and Out

Poetry

What a joy to see her walk into a room.
Brings sunshine and smiles everywhere.
One person so full of love.
Sharing the sweet kindness given her.
A jewel she is, given to us.
With radiant beauty to brighten all our ways.
Looking always upward to her Father above.
Showing us where her strength does lie.
A jewel she is ,given to us.
Natural beauty inside and out.

A “Gift” Came Your Way

Poetry

Many years ago, a gift came your way.
Unexpected it was, shocking and life changing.

Challenges so many,
Were brought your way.

Forward you stepped, full of strength,
That only God can give.

Someone special it takes.
To be chosen to receive this gift.

Someone who is loving,
Caring, wise and giving.

Twenty-four/seven,non-stop resilience,
No one really understands but you.

Long it wasn’t for you to be filled with love.
Chosen for this “gift” that came your way.

Have A Plan

Praise

The day is here
Waste not the time
You’ve been given

Make your plans
And start your day
Accomplish whatever you can

Doesn’t have to be great
Or impressive to anyone
As long as you have won

Won that battle of sitting
Or lying and not moving
Feeling like you can’t

No matter how hard
It is to do ,rewards are there
Waiting for you

Feeling and knowing
That you have accomplished                                                                                                           God’s plan for you this day
