The Unexpected   2 comments

– The Unexpected –
Sometimes things just don’t add up
Other times things reconcile to a tee
Most important is not to make
Perfectionism an idol
Letting go and letting God
Doesn’t mean to not have a care in this Divine process
But rather to trust and be the best steward that I can be
For with the God who loves us more than we could know
Miracles are possible and visible every day
I thank you God for your eyes constantly upon me
And all Your beloved creation
All is known by You and nothing can be hidden
Take from me I pray, anything that would obstruct
The good purpose that You’ve planned
In my mind choices are preconceived as doors number one, two, or three
But by letting go and letting God
Leaves room on my plate for more
Because with You there’s always that unanticipated door number four
God is so much bigger than anything the world can do
I hear your gentle whisper, ‘I am here; and I am loving you’

God’s Love for Us   Leave a comment

Your love for me can never be

Greater than Mine for you

But I don’t mind that you try 

To love me greater still

I delight in your desire

You please me when you try

Don’t be dismayed or stutter in your quest

I love you more

And love you best

You are beautiful 

Because you’re mine


God is Wherever I Am   Leave a comment

Oh God I pray, whether the moon, or sun, or stars

Glisten, shine, or sparkle not

I find You in the deep, or in the dark


But Do You Love Mom?   5 comments

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 a bridge to cross after believing in God … to get to the “All things work together for good for those who LOVE God” part.

My experience has been that after I first believed, as an adult, and consciously admitted my faith (belief) in God; I experienced God’s love to enter and fill my heart. In time I was able to acknowledge the Spiritual love and goodness of God in all things – Then, and only then, could I begin my humble journey of not just believing in God but loving God in return, with gratitude for everything in my life, including the pain and hardship, and for the life which is to come.

My faith is believing that “All things do work together for good for those who love God,” because I trust that God … my Mom-God knows what She is doing …

The conversation between the twins ends like this:

“You are crazy! Nobody ever came back after birth. Life is over with birth. That’s it.”

“I admit that nobody knows what life after birth will look like. But I do know that we will see our mother then, and that she will take care of us.”



But Do You Love Mom

Thank you God for letting me know You are ever present   Leave a comment

I chose to read one of my favorite verses before I started my four hour drive at dawn –
All things work together for good for those who love God – Romans 8:28
I then turned on the radio – Sirius – Message channel; to hear the song lyrics –
“All things work together for our good … “
