There is Good

I wrote the following after reading some content on my phone, in regards to animal abuse. From that my mind wondered to other kinds of abuse in our world. But prior to all of that, the word good was stuck in my mind. Then my daily reading for today mentioned the word goodness, saying to always look for goodness and mercy.. Here is what followed.

look and you will find, that there is good, there is good all of the time-there are good people who live every day, who do good-and if you watch, and hear what they say- and see how they give and not take away- but willing to help those in need-not swollen with pride, or tempted with greed-not rebellious at heart, but live life to care-so never think that goodness is never there-for the truth is that good exists, and is around- but is often not noticed and is very quiet in sound…

His Eye on You

His eye is on the sparrow, but in this case, it’s a young finch. He caught my husbands eye this morning, as it managed to get a drink from the birdbath. Now this little one sits in the same place and appears to have an injured leg.  I have provided it some seed and more water. I am still assimilating all that has transpired, but it is on my heart to thank one and all, that responded in love and prayed for Jadey’s safety. I praise God for answered prayer, and for those who were active, in their quest to help as they could. I give God all honor and glory, for what he has done, and will continue to do on her behalf. He has a plan and purpose for her, and it is good. I am grateful.. Thank you WordPress community and friends..

God cares for the tiniest of creatures and always has his eye on you too.

I have just returned from checking on little bird, and he has passed away. I buried little bird under the shade and peace of an apple tree.

Ok, Girls

 

Break time is over..

I realize that these are very blurry.. but as we drove by, and I observed these cows heading back to their barn, I was intrigued. What caught my eye was the one leading them back, like an obedient soul, knowing that it was time, to go back to work. I saw humor in this, but inwardly, I hoped that they are happy cows… or as happy as they can be in their living quarters and circumstances in life. There are quite a few dairy farms, that I have read about, that don’t treat their cows well. But that goes for many animals, and it makes my heart sad, and for humans, as well.

Sunday Soul Search

Live in harmony with each other. Do not be arrogant, but associate with humble people. Do not think that you are wiser than you really are.

Worldly Wordy Chatter part 1

wordly wordy chatter

words gone wrong

what’s the matter?

prince of the air

got your tongue?

he’s having a heyday

having fun..

using your mouth

for evil

 to incite strife

nothing good and nothing right..

Prince of Peace

sadly looks on

where did the children

of God go wrong?

no longer discerning

between darkness and light

only puffed up

and following the crowd..

who think being louder

is ok

to prove their point

in what really is unsound..

Which way?

And you He made alive, who were dead in trepasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience. among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature the children of wrath, just as the others. But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us. Even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved). and raised us up together and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. That in ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.

                                                                                                           Ephesians 2: 1-8

As a child of God we are in the world but not of it. That means we are different. To be different. Not mean. not contentious, not vulgar, nor crude. We don’t follow the crowd of disobedience but on the path of right standing..
