When I Am Weak He is Strong

quiet friends

they are around

some so silent

and don’t make a sound

strength comes in numbers

together we are strong

but the enemy

wants to take us

all down..

Dear ones, Thank you from the bottom of my splintered heart. Your prayers are appreciated and the cries of our heart are heard in the heavenlies.  I am a witness to the fact that He carries me, and all that concerns me. 

There was a search done today and there is not a trace to be seen or found at this time. If only Jadey’s dog could talk. I know they are missing their human mom.. She’s had them since they were puppies. My love and gratitude, for your warm expressions of concern..

a rogue tongue

not so fun..

being mean

what’s going on?

in you brain

and your heart

we are not all

the same..

we do all have

a beating heart

blood that runs

through our veins..

yours is not more precious

than mine

or any others..

as God is our maker

we were created by

his design..

and it was his plan

for all of us

to be kind..

1 Corinthians 13:1

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth..

 

 

 

So Long November

so long november

where did you go?

i guess you were in the fast lane

and I was in the slow

distracted was i

but ever true were you

to grace us the dance of leaves

from earth’s many, beautiful trees..

whisper words

of kindness

as you go about your day..

someone is needing to hear

what you have to say..

your sincere words

will make a difference..

speak

and let someone know..

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.

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..

there’s a light at the end of the tunnel

i’ve been clearing the clutter away

it’s been such a painful experience

because the clutter wants to stay..

but this disease has got to go

it has been with me far too long

so it is time for clutter bug and i

to find something new to do

i already feel the freedom

and seeing a little light

as i say goodbye to clutter bug

because i want clutter out of my sight..
