Matt 6.26

Thank you God

for taking care of me
for delighting in my life
for knowing my needs
better than I do

Thank you God

for providing for me
for lifting me up
for bringing me close to you
when I need it most

Thank you God

for loving me
for holding me
for accepting me
just as I am

Thank you God

Delight yourself in the Lord
and He will give you the desires of your heart

Oh, how often
do we read
this promise
dreaming of
diamonds
and Playstations
and new jobs
or perfect spouses

dreaming
shiny new toys
are on their way
for good girls and boys

But
I don’t think it means
anything such as that

For when we truly delight
in God
when we truly focus
on Him
and all that He is,
everything else
melts away

We stop caring about
new toys
new jobs
new talents
new things

And He becomes
the only desire
the only delight
and all that we need
in this world

Psalm 37

Why am I always
so focused on me?

focused on how I feel
or how you don’t
notice

When was the last time
I asked about you?

Why am I sitting
in a deep hole
a pit
of myself

It’s dark in here
I am alone
focused on myself
on me me me

It’s time to bring in some light
and all I need to do
is ask about you

Hello friends!
Today is my 40th birthday, and I’ve been having fun over the last two weeks celebrating the one year anniversary of this blog and Facebook page along with this upcoming day.

So how do I celebrate?
By celebrating wisdom.

First, I honored this little phrase as it was the one that started it all for me:

And this got me thinking; I seem to like my wisdom in small nibbles.

Such powerful things can be said in short phrases.

Words that make us think, images that bring us smiles

And now I have fallen in love with this concept.

So much so,
that I have started
another blog
dedicated to little bites of 3-word wisdom.

If little nibbles with your cup of tea too, come on over here to sign up.
I’m posting one nugget each day (so far), and I think you might enjoy them.
I know I am.

Thanks so much
to each of you
for being here
with me
on this journey!
❤ Love, Light and Blessings ❤

Thankful for You

I am so
thankful
for you.

You emanate light
the radiance
of a new dawn

You bring life
to this world

joy and
laughter from the gut
learning and
growth of my soul
respect and
unconditional acceptance

who would I be
if I didn’t know you?

I can’t even imagine

dull
no polish or shine
disconnected
detached and distrusting
lost
no friend to share the road
closed
in darkness.

You are light.
You are a healing force.
You are joy.
You are beloved.
You are amazing.

And
I know hope,
I know blessing,
I know joy,
I know love,
because
I know you.

Psalm 23

This biblical heart song has always been comforting, and last week I broke it into pieces on facebook with some of my own photos.  I thought I would share those posters here with you now. I hope you enjoy. Blessings!

❤ Amen ❤

Dear God

My pulse counts
each of the moments
that you think of me

each moment surrounded
each moment protected
each moment loved
by you

Effortless

I breathe in
I breathe out
without thought
But you know
each time that I do

I hurriedly ready for the day
taking sips of coffee
choosing clothes from the closet
brushing my teeth
brushing my hair

and you know exactly
how many sips
which clothes I will choose
how many hairs
I will lose to my comb

You know me
without effort
and
you know
my every moment

On those days
when life starts to overwhelm me
when I’m not sure I can handle
all that comes at me

I just need to remember
that with faith the size of a mustard seed
I can move mountains
and those mountains in my mind

God’s love washes over me
He wraps me tightly in his arms
He shields me with shining armor
and covers me with gentle flowing grace

Just the tiniest
dot
of faith

Every once in while
almost as if in a blue moon

I catch a glimpse
of me

a sideways look
an unintentional reflection
a view through another’s eyes
a magical moment in my own brain

and in this glimpse
I see myself
as God sees me

Covered in His glory
Shining His light
through my skin
Reflecting radiance
Pure light
and splendid color

I am whole
I am pure
I am loved and loveable
I am beautiful
I am innocent
I am His
and I am amazed

Create in me a clean heart, O God
wash away my negative thoughts
scrub my mind to a sparkle

Renew my connection with you
holding me in your arms
gathering me in your lap
so that all I see
is you

Restore unto me
the joy of you
you have saved me
you have freed me
you love me

Remind me
of your grace
Remind me
of your love
Refresh my spirit
with your presence
You are always by my side
