A long time ago…..

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.
