It’s that time of year, when I am thinking about and praying for children that are starting their school year. My, how things have changed. Did we not look like wholesome kids..lol! Well, I am sure there were some little rascals in that class.
I loved the dresses during that time. Jump rope, trading cards, jacks, foursquare and monkey bars were my recess favorites, along with hopscotch. Tuna sandwiches rocked, especially if accompanied with Fritos. Oh such memories..
Father, I pray for blessing upon all children. I pray for safekeeping, and teacher’s that inspire and that are committed to seeing that each child flourish and have a successful school year. Father, just as your eye is on the sparrow, you know each child by name. You know the number of strands of hair on each head. Thank you, that you are a loving and caring God and wanting good for all. In Jesus name I pray.. Amen!
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.
Linking to this weeks photo challenge..
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…
round and round
the world we go
losing sight of what we know
out of control
delving in darkness
that masters the soul…
Lord, help us
help us quick
free us from what
makes us sick..
love will turn this world around
compassion and kindness
can make us sound…
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..
