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..

Through the Eyes of a Child

I am back home after my adventures with the grand littles. I only used my phone to take photos. It was different for me, as I enjoy the use of a regular camera. But wanted to avoid extra weight and I am still struggling with why certain photos, from a particular camera are going to neverland.  I often like to capture a shot that is not posed. I wondered what my grandson was seeing and thinking about the boat ride. Here is another one that I have posted previously on his first Metrolink train ride.

Mile’s is a deep thinker and this grandmother was certainly impressed with his many skills. Grandma Bobbie, as I am known to my grandchildren learned some new things about herself. The process of aging slows one’s body down, and the energy level is quite not up to par. Times of feeling somewhat fragile and not as strong is quite an awakening. But this adventure was not about me, but the opportunity to allow the little’s to see grandma in her silliness, singing songs along with them and hopefully seeing that she is young at heart.

renewing of the mind

Sunday Soul Search

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
