Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.
You comprehend my path and my laying down,
And are acquainted with all of my ways.
For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether..
Crafting does not come easily to me, but I got enthused about decorating a glass jar. The purpose for it, is to hold notes to self, prayer requests and anything else, that I may want to go back to and reflect on. It was a very simple project and I was pleased with the outcome. The Weekly Photo Challenge is Repurpose.
i found out
he is musically inclined
this man child
i don’t know
but not necessarily meant
for me to know
but what i do
with what i see
i see much more
a picture can portray
easy to see surface stuff
i see a need
for caring, for compassion
and going the extra mile
and offering up some prayer
that is a mother..
yes, i do know their names.. when i see this dog, my heart melts
Thank you for playing a song for me…
I have previously posted this photo before. Right now I don’t have anything original or cute. Many have most likely heard about the incident in Southern, California. We moved from San Bernardino, County, almost two years ago. I have been doing a lot of thinking.. about how the lives of so many have been turned upside down. Yes, lives are lost everyday, in so many ways, that are horrific. But, when it is close to home, somewhat close to the community that I grew up in, it just, kind of shakes you up. For the longest time, I have been one that learned, that where we put our attention, where we spend our time, it will have an affect on me and you. If you look for beauty, you will find it, you will see it, or it will find you. If you spend time in places of darkness, physically, mentally and emotionally, it will affect you, me, and the whole world. So these days, I am careful about what gets my attention, not because I am so… anything other, than being one that needs help from the Creator of the universe, from God almighty, who extends mercy and grace to all that call upon His name. When, I am weak, He is strong. When I am sad, He comforts my heart. When I don’t understand, He reassures me that He has it all under control and I need to only trust…
your heart pumps
it works it’s way through
to give you life
but what do you do?
where is your treasure
is it for good?
extending love and kindness
just as all should…
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also..
Good news.. Please continue in prayer for Pat..Thanks so much.
Pat was transferred yesterday (22 Oct 2015) to a Rehab/Nursing Facility where they have already started on a program to build up her strength with coming home as the goal. She was in the hospital 42 days.
Pat still has some medical issues that need to be addressed, but she needs to get stronger to be able to take care of those.
Hopefully within the next few weeks, Pat will be back on this blog. We’re all working hard to bring her home.
Thanks again for all your prayers and good wishes. Pat still needs them.
I want to begin my morning with this update from Pat’s husband. As some of you may recall I shared the link to her blog, Bailey Road. Her husband had requested prayer for his wife, Pat. I want to thank you on her behalf, for those that kept her in your hearts, and prayed for her recovery. Good news today, her condition has changed and improved, although their dog, Chloe is stilling missing. But we know that all things are possible with God. Please pray for her continued recovery and for Chloe’s safety and return. If you want to read the update please click on the link.. xx
Just as the Seasons change, so do the Seasons of our lives. Autumn is a beautiful time of the year and a time for self reflection and exploration of my heart. I want to be flexible and acknowledge what needs to be changed. Not to remain stagnant or stuck, but free and healthy in my thought life. I am linking to the Weekly Photo Challenge of Change.
Please pray for Pat from Bailey Road. She needs our prayers and so does her dog Chloe who is missing.. Let’s believe for her healing and Chloe’s safety and return to home. Thank you!
