To Ukraine with Love

Dear women and children of Ukraine, It’s important for me, to let you know, that I am thinking about you. I have shed tears for your situation and have at times felt helpless. As I have viewed the news, I secretly imagined myself being transported to help. I am a senior woman. I have thought that I could hold a hand, or comfort a baby or child. To hear about and read about your tenacity, is truly inspiring. I know that I could learn much from you, from your determination to follow through, with what is on your heart to do. As a bystander from the United States, I cheer you on. With prayer and love, may you be carried to safety. There is power in prayer and I will continue to pray. Thanking my Lord for all he is doing, and going to do. He knows you by name, sees your tears.. He is a God of love and compassion. Remember you are courageous and you are strong.. I close with, The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid.. Sincerely, In Him, Roberta

Not So Strong on Shaky Ground

standing on shaky ground

even though there are answers to be found

somewhere in the written word

like tasty morsels and divine treats

but to uncover them, is quite a feat

understanding is required

and at this time, i lack that skill

for i am weary of the struggle

maybe i do not have what it takes

for discouragement wants it’s way..

a prayer, just doesn’t float in the air

it is received with open ears and tender care

pray without ceasing, as hard times are increasing

we need strength and wisdom

to not be deceived..

come under the shadow of safety

and where your concerns will be relieved

put your trust in the Almighty

and with your whole heart, Believe..

Way Back When

A special cat, who adopted us while we were in transition and asked for very little. A roof over her head and food in her bowl. I will add that she was partial to Mr. G. He fed her turkey, one Thanksgiving Day in 2002. Hey You, whom he named, decided he (Mr. G) was a keeper. Hey You had a few things to teach me, and that she did. She prepared me for the other furry friends, that we would add to our household. I attribute prayer for keeping her alive. Back in March, when Mr. G was away on a trip. I began to see signs of her declining. She lost her appetite, was disoriented and had a seizure. I tried to keep her comfortable, and looked forward to Mr. G’s return. Upon his arrival he took over and before we knew it, she was back on her feet, eating and drinking a little. She was particularly fond of white toy mice. It was amazing to watch how playful she became, even as a senior cat. We all miss you Hey You.. But I have to ask, if you put the word out and sent that rough looking, long haired, grey cat to come and visit us? Please don’t extend the invitation. Lol! Rest in Peace sweet cat..

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.

Kingtides

On Saturday morning, we drove to the coast, knowing about the activity, that was to take place for a few days. For this moment, I am only posting this one photo. My heart is heavy, for those swept out to sea, on that day. Out of respect for them I am praying for those that have lost loved ones.

i think of you

not necessary

what i know

only that

you are loved

and on

a golden shore above..
