In the Early Spring

20180423_160726

And on that day when the grey clouds hid the sun away,

God said let there be a brightness on the Earth,

and so he created the forsythia

to brighten our day,

to brighten our way,

in the early spring,

he made a plant

to burn yellow.

A Psalm for Spring

100_1848

Let all the earth praise You My God, let all the green earth

praise You!

May every burst of yellow,

purple, blue, and pink

bring praise to You,

maker of all things.

And may all the rain, streams

and rivers sing

of Your great wonders,

let all the earth praise You My God, let all the green earth

praise You!

A Prayer for Older Couples

20170503_164220

Heavenly Father, thank you that we are still together,

loving each other, here on this earth.

Even though we’ve changed,

and love changes over time,

help us to look to You,

to trust in You

and to always work together

as a team.

May we embrace our differences,

and may love always

be our guide. And Lord

You know our aches and pains,

guard our hearts,

that we will not be bitter.

May we have the love in our hearts

and the courage to always say

“I do.” And “I still do.”

Amen.

The Wonders You Have Done

20170503_161625

“Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders you have done.

The things you planned for us no one can recount

to you; were I to speak and tell of them,

they would be too many to declare.”

Psalm 40: 5

We all know that God blesses us each day, but have we ever counted our blessings? We could fill books, volumes even if we kept a record of them. When we really think about how He takes care of us each day, we can have our hearts filled with gratitude!

And what is also amazing is that the King of the Universe, the Creator of all things, has more good in store for us! Did you know God has plans for you? Perhaps it will be continued good health, or maybe that job we really need. And for us older folks retirement is not far away!

The point is, God is not only mighty and powerful, He is faithful and cares about each one of us!

Thank You Heavenly Father for all of the blessings You have poured out on us, simply because You care. And thank You God that You have good plans in store for each one of us! Amen and amen.

quote from the NIV Bible 

Each of One of Our Lives

100_1047

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

Genesis 1:1

It all began with God. Before there was ever a world, He was.

And we are not the summation of chance and matter, coming together randomly.

To be honest that takes more faith to believe, than simply God made each of us.

Did God know us before the world was ever made? I believe He did, and I am sure He rejoiced when he saw the beautiful mosaic of each one of our lives. Each one a masterpiece.

Lord God we thank You and praise You! Amen.

His Love Endures Forever

100_5418

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”

Psalm 118:29

This very famous verse is so powerful, because it reminds us to give thanks to Him, and that He is good! In our crazy, mixed up world, this portion refocuses our minds on the goodness of God, and on the goodness of His love enduring forever, and ever, and ever!!!

Ain’t that so cool?!!

We praise You our God, help us to always dwell on Your goodness, especially in the tough times. Amen!!

Wisdom, and Understanding

20170503_164504

“Get wisdom, get understanding;

do not forget my words or turn away from them.

Do not forsake wisdom,

and she will protect you;

love her, and she will watch over you.” 

Proverbs 4: 5, 6

Did you know that God’s wisdom protects you? I don’t know about you, but I could use an extra shield or two!

Lord God, thank you for Your wisdom! Help us to soak in Your words, your will for us, that we can be wise, and live for you.

Amen.

One Thing I Ask

20170503_153654

“One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek:

that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

all the days of my life, to gaze

upon the beauty of the Lord

and to seek him

in his temple.”
