Just a thought...

Birds leave feathers, people leave impressions, by attitude, gestures of kindness(or not so kindness), or by creating. Life is short, God's word says we are like fading flowers and withering grass. What will we leave behind?

One of Those Days

One of those days...
Don't feel like lifting our head
Having a hard time getting out of bed
Wishing we could hide away from the world
Feeling like every nerves come unfurled
We all have these days, but we have to remember...
That this too shall pass, they won't last forever. ~ Mary

A million thought's "pop" into our minds every day, and depending how we're feeling, some good and some not so good. When we are bombarded, and having trouble separating them out or we get stuck in the negative thought cycle. Here's a little acronym I came up with using a common stop sign. When your thoughts are getting the better of you...STOP...Set thoughts on pause. When we consiously do this, it gives our minds permission to step back for a moment. It gives time for us to look at the facts in a situation and challenge our thoughts with God's truth(what He says in His Word) about our thinking, and gives us a chance to recalculate, changing our thoughts to match God's, and move forward in God's perspective.

Cloudy with 100% Chance of Son!

Cloudy with 100% chance of Son.
A forecast of our days...
In retrospect of years gone by
We see a trend unfolding
Our background color's always gray
With bits of Son emerging.
Cloudy with a chance of Son
Reveals a great insight...
A life colored in shades of gloom
Makes us more aware of light.
It's the Son we've come to cherish
As a deserts gentle rain
That cools the heated landscape
Relieving it of pain.
A profound appreciation
In a world splattered with black
When Son's illumination
Shines through with an attack.
It keeps the heart from atrophy
Has power to bring life
Cuts the world of darkness
With precision of a knife.
Jesus is the Son
Who brightens cloudy days
He's 100% dependable
When in our heart He stays.

Too timid to roar like an African Lion?
Then try shining bright like a dandelion.
They're just as resilient, sturdy, and strong
Spreading their seeds as the days are long.
Sowing their beauty wherever they go.
Popping up everywhere eager to grow.
To some they appear as a pesky weed
But extermination never seems to succeed.
Reminds me a lot of the Christian life
How the message of hope can create lots of strife.
Where something so good is mistaken for bad
And talking of Jesus makes people mad.
Yet we continue to multiply.
For God's seeds of love are in great supply.
