God's Goodness

Traveler

i shall live

i shall die

i won’t regret

and wonder why

life was hard

with many lessons

i had to learn..

days of rejection

times of tears

lack of courage

as i faced my fears..

but I would not trade

my life for any other

for through it all

i got to know my Father..

not my earthly one

whom i did not get to know

but the creator of earth

to me He did show..

how to be humble

in all of my ways

loving and kind

does He wish to instill

as He continues to shape

my heart and will..

to be a reflection

of who He is

He walks with me daily

and directs my steps

He counsels me in the night

and comforts me too..

peace in His presence

so many good gifts

Thank you Father

for all that you give and do..

Today’s thoughts.. Train rides allow me time to think and see sights that I would not normally view while in a car. The train is not for everyone. Some want to get to their destination quickly. I am in no hurry. Along the way I always meet someone special. Sometimes you hear conversations that you would rather not listen to. I can often pick up on when the train attendants are tired, and like in everyday life, there are those that like to push someone’s buttons. Despite the unpleasantries I take it all in and make use of the time to pray for the strangers on the train..

    1. Hi! Just wondering if I can share your link when I get around to posting on visiting the art gallery? It’s been a bit hectic. Husband had surgery. So I am working on my home health aide skills..

      1. Sure you can. I hope all’s well. The fact that you’re working on “home” health aide skills suggests he is home now — all to the good. I hope his recovery’s quick and easy, or at least uncomplicated!

  1. Beautiful words! Train travel does give you time to just sit back, enjoy the scenery, and think. Something we don’t do much these days. But I also am like shoreacres, I enjoy traveling by car because we can stop wherever we want, whenever we want.

    1. We don’t have opportunity to travel far together these days. Four cats keep close by. So I take advantage of what comes my way.. Maybe some time along the way we will..
