An unplanned life is like leaving home and not knowing which way to turn


Without the willingness to learn how could we ever grow or change


Or even dare to consider that life could be an exciting adventure


No matter what the cost all could be lost without the openness to receive all the love and unexpected gifts that God’s gifts of nature always offer


Turning what many see as mundane to a supernatural experience


Open my eyes oh Lord and pour in your love and enlightenment


I implore you to seek my heart to explore


Find me here and take me where


Only Your guiding hand can lead


To prosper and not cause harm


Fill each cell with brimming faith


If only fear and doubt is my enemy


And you have overcome all adversity


Then take this life You have freely given


That I may return it to You with love and with commitment


With all my fears and doubts that are only momentary


Your promises are true and heaven is not a dream in some unexpected tomorrow


But with You, heaven is here and now

Pink pancakes non-caloric

Satisfy the soul

An appetite never waning

Ever wanting more

See all that God has cooked up

Under the warmth of a springtime sun

Why my God has even

All that’s good 

Brought to light 

In colors shades and shapes 

God gave it all for us to use

To blend for color 

Or use for food 

I think I’ll make an hibiscus shake

But Do You Love Mom?   Leave a comment

Forever true and necessary to remember as often as possible …

This morning as I was spending quiet time reflecting on my current circumstances and trying to reconcile the good of it all, I thought of the scripture verse that reads, “All things work together for good for those who love God…” Romans 8:28 That led me to wonder about those who barely believe there is a God at all. I then recalled the following wonderful example of the conversation between the twins in the womb discussing the existence of Mom.

~~~“Mother???? But you don’t believe in a mother, do you? Where is she?”

“She is here, all around us. We are and we live within her and through her. Without her we couldn’t exist at all!”

“Nonsense! I’ve never sensed a mother, consequently she doesn’t exist.”

“Yes, sometimes, when we are very quiet you can hear her sing, or feel how she caresses our world.” ~~~

There is still…

Believe and see the kingdom of God that is here and now – captured in a moment – fleeting on this plain – momentary reminders of what is and what will be
