Jesus Restores our Hope

I walked in the dark The moon shone above I lifted my eyes and sought Him. My voice was still Yet my heart cried out In my utterance He caught me. Blessings and power from God above. Rest, the battle is won!  What power the blood of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, slain for the…

Streams of Consciousness

Being new to the art of writing a novel, I can say I do not know much. I am pretty dumb when it comes to understanding the inner workings of creating a masterpiece. While participating the first day of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) I learned a whole lot about James Joyce, William Faulkner and…

Tremble

Pains of labor this world beseechs, Driving nails into the coffin. “Where are you Holy God, that I suffer so?” Who among you is like God, Performing feats of wonder? Be discerning, Do not blindly follow! Hiding among the reeds, Abandoned children cry. “Where are you Holy God, that we suffer so?”  Your clenched fists, rising up! Unclasp your hands,…

Beginning of life with Christ. So you say you’re a new believer… “Whenever you wish to change yourself, but find it difficult, start as children do by pretending that you already are.  As you play at being who you wish to become, the play act itself will surely transform you.” –Cornelius V Wyk Romans 8:28-30…

What’s in your head?

Stumbling upon a roadside graveyard, I pulled over and drove up the hill to the church parking lot. My daughter crabbed about the delay to get home, ignoring her, I grabbed my camera and surveyed the scenery. Taking delight in the warm summer breeze, I snapped a few pictures. There was enough fodder here for several poems or books and…

The box

I finally opened the box and realized why I waited so long. It was not empty. There in the wrapping was my brother’s baby picture along with his first pair of running shoes. There is hope in that empty box now that I have taken the pictures of John and I, the baby shoes and…

Loss

There are no words. I have been robbed. They flowed like a stream yesterday and then the news came through the telephone. “Jeannie, mom passed away last night at 9:40 pm”. My dad had been taking care of his wife who battled cancer for years.  The last days were the hardest. She traveled from home…

Be Thou My Vision

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. Proverbs 29:18 KJV Do your words create a vision for people? Are your words faithful to the Bible? Are not those who are teaching to be held accountable for the direction they steer? In the land, there was…

From the ash heap!

In a twinkling of a star, a thought enters your mind and your life is forever changed.  You will not forget the past, however, everything from this moment on will never look the same.  Have you ever experienced a moment like that just described?  Your private world burns to the ground and arising from the ashes is…

Coloring pages…

I still love to color. A fresh box of crayons each September is a treat. My old broken ones are unwrapped, shoved into the oven on an old cookie sheet, to melt and be formed into new crayons. Here are a few of my favorite coloring book webpages.  http://www.crayola.com/free-coloring-pages/ Do not resist what you will enjoy. http://www.janbrett.com/activities_pages_artwork.htm Her art…
