Add spice to your life
Salt your days with rest and praise
Take time to relax

Add pepper daily
With personal time to pray
You’ll taste the difference

Use leisure as time
To greet Jesus in your soul
He is there waiting!

God bless you this day
Health, strength, and vitality
Are His gifts to you

Trust and Rest


Today is a day

To trust and rest in the Lord

Sit down and praise God

No need to worry

He has all your troubles held

He can fix antlers

So He can fix you!

Take your cares to Lord Jesus:

Great Intercessor.

Synchronicity


SYNCHRONICITY

“… the simultaneous occurrence of causally unrelated events and the belief that the simultaneity has meaning beyond mere coincidence.”

Has such synchronism happened to you? Can you think of a time when there was a coincidence in time/events/things that was too synchronous to be coincidental? I can!

Just last weekend, I watched a movie on my Amazon Prime Video that was titled, Lightkeepers. It was a delightful film starring Richard Dreyfuss in which he played the role of the lighthouse keeper. Love lost and love renewed, life lost and life renewed, heartwarming and real. I highly recommend it.

But what does this have to do with synchronicity? Well, in the four days since I watched that movie, I have seen lighthouses at least once each day… in a TV ad, in the newspaper, in the centerfold of my November issue of In Touch Magazine… this photo by Charles Stanley:

I posted it accidentally in a post of its own, titled Lighthouses, just a few minutes ago. I was trying to save it to use in this post and I ended up posting it alone – – – and losing everything I had written so far on this subject of Synchronicity. Hmmm…

Then, this morning, before I could redo the post that I started, my friend who comes once a week for prayer, praise, study and devotional sharing time with me, arrived with a new cloth bag in which she carries her books, etc. What do you think the bag had pictured on the cover?

You guessed it!

What do we do with such synchronicity? Does it make you think? Do you ask yourself, “What are these reoccurrences trying to teach me?” I do!

Charles Stanley’s photo had this scripture printed below it:
“O send out Your Light and Your Truth, let them lead me; let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your dwelling places. Then I will go to the alter of God, to God my exceeding joy; and upon the lyre I will praise you, O God, my God.” Psalm 43:3-4

I don’t play the lyre, but I play the accordion. Upon the accordion I will praise You, O God, my God. I will bring exceeding joy to the people in our local nursing home. I will accept the call, and be the light that God has given me. Yesterday I wrote about Reciprocity … receiving and giving back. Today it’s time for me to “Walk the Talk.”

Come – and Go shine forth!!

Do You Reek?


I don’t control

Others’ noses.

Some say I reek!

Others say

It’s a Holy Fragrance.

.

Because I know Him,

Because I praise Him daily,

I adopt the joy of His Presence,

And come out smelling

Like a rose.

.

Because I love Him,

Because I immerse myself

In His Scripture daily,

I come out smelling

Like a rose.

.

Because I worship Him,

Because I hang out with Him,

I absorb His fragrance

And come out smelling

Like the aroma of Christ.

.

You are His fragrance

In a world of smells.

You gather His aroma

As you know, praise, worship,

Love, and hang out with Him.

.

God Bless You,

My special Blogging Friends.

Immerse yourself in Him,

And you’ll come out

Smelling like a rose, too!

A Poem of Gratitude


Image

I woke this morning to the most glorious sunrise!
Up in my sanctuary, spending quiet time with my Lord,
this poem of gratitude flowed from my heart.
May it cause you to pause and Thank God, too, my friends.

Oh Lord, my God, I thank Thee
As You walk with me each day.
I thank Thee for the guidance
You provide me on the way.

I thank Thee for the love
You give me to pass along.
I thank Thee for the friends
Who point toward right, not wrong.

Oh Lord, my God, I thank Thee
For the bright new morning sun.
I thank Thee for the moments
I can praise You, every one.

I thank Thee for the trials
And the struggles that I face.
They strengthen and enrich me
As I bow to receive Your grace.

I thank Thee for the joys,
For the happiness that springs
From every living creature
That hops, flies, barks, and sings.

Your world is filled with wonders –
If I just open up my eyes
To see this great creation
That You’ve rolled into the skies.

The stars, the moon, the planets
Are not all there is to see.
You’ve made more than we’ll ever know
Until we reach eternity.

Oh Lord, my God, I thank Thee
For every breath I take.
May my life be in Your purpose.
May I live for Your Son’s sake.

Amen?

Amen!!!
