It is Well!

2 Jun hydrangea AND A COVERED bridge

My niece sent me this YouTube song today.   I do love this song…among many others….as God speaks deep within me when I hear awesome lyrics.

It came to me…..

Are we perfect?..Have we reached the highest point?….Not hardly…but then God did not ask us to do that.

Have we no more need to go to Him and His word?…Not hardly…without His grace…we will never be finished.

Can we love as well and as much as is possible?…Not hardly….I say…..No…not at all….

We are lowly…we are sorry…we are worthless…without God’s wonderful embrace and His Son’s most awesome sacrifice.

It is well with MY soul….because in spite of all this ^,  I know where my Help comes from….I know where my Love and Salvation begin…and I try…with all that I can try with….to follow Him and place my hand….in His.

May He forever guide me…and YOU….and may we all say and know…..It is Well….It is Well…With my Soul.  Amen.

Gifts from Our Lord!

1-1255945936kyPsAs a young girl….and as a young adult….  As a mature person….and as a middle-aged one……

I guess for most of my life, I have wondered….”Lord?..what is my gift?…tell me what to do?….I need a talent…a gift….a path!”

Well….I think….we can choose maybe anything that makes us happy, makes us smile…and is necessary for our world.  It took me a lifetime to figure this out…and although I contributed much in trying over the years…I had no major direction.

You might say, what a waste….what a loss….she never used what she was given…..

I think…and I say….oh contrare!….God gave me love for all things….all peoples….all animals….all!  I check out much!  I enjoyed much!  I loved much!   I think I did ok!  God gave me a full palette of many colors.  And I have only touched on a few with many more to go.  This lifetime will be far too short to do it all….but I will do all that I can to enjoy, investigate, and experience…..the colors.

Maybe you are a singer….an educator…a secretary….or a doctor….but I….I am a lover of the colors of all….I am here to express how truly beautiful….it ALL is!

Maybe….anyway….I will continue…with what is on my palette…until or unless….the Lord hands me a new one.

Flowers, butterflies, and fairies….

18 Mar

It is that time of year…..Slowly the flowers and leaves poke up out of the ground…attracting the caterpillars as they hatch from their eggs.  Soon the caterpillars will eat their fill and will spin a wonderful cocoon to slowly but surely morph into butterflies.

Hidden among the butterflies….if you look closely enough….you might find the fairies….

Winged wonders of imagination that say….the last life cycle is complete….we will play, dance, sing, and flutter….until time to hide again for the winter…..beginning all over again and again….in the spring.

“Red and Yellow and Pink and Green….Purple and Orange and Blue….
You can sing a rainbow”….and just maybe….see the fairies.

Praise God from whom all Blessings flow!

My dogs don’t pose…lol

A Funny Tale…..

My husband has had this huge flat trailer in our back yard…loaded with all manner of stuff.

My doggies must be chained in the back yard….they love the out doors….but will jump the fence and wander….and since they have a bit of wolf in them…and and are not really used to “society manners”…it is safer for them….to be constrained.

Well, Ms. Dolly (the little black one, and Diamond’s granddaughter)….could reach the trailer and for about 2 years….has enjoyed being “Queen of the Mountain” and hunting, Lord only knows what….in the pile….under tarps….on the trailer.  Many times she would get her cable  “hung up” on something or other…and being a hyper type doggie….would about kill me ….as I tried to “free her”.    She would do it again ….over and over….and  over and over….

We are in the process of “cleaning up and moving out”  all this excessive stuff….my hubby has accumulated in our 29 years here….and plan to put the place on the market and move in about two years.  In view of this….the trailer of “Mountain stuff”…had to go.

Now my dearest Ms. Dolly….gets attached to things and loves things and her heart ….is big as all outdoors.  And….this trailer Mountain…was her very bestest friend….after her Grandmother of course.

And so she has mourned.  This Mountain is where she caught…who knows how many…. bugs…frogs…chased a cat or two …and the latest….found an armadillo.   She loved her Mountain.

She fussed as my husband and son pulled it out of the back yard…and she has been laying up by the back door…chin to the ground….facing the “place” where the Mountain used to be…and sighing.  Over and over again….sighing.

Although I know her grief is real,  I am sure she will eventually get over it….even if I have to get a bucket of toads and unleash them in the back yard for her to hunt.

It’s the little things after all…that are blessings….dogs…”mountains” and a toad or two.
