Faithful and True

This is Jackie(or swedish, as my oldest son calls her)...She's been part of our family for 12 years now and has remained a steady source of joy and comfort for all of us. Every morning without fail I wake up and as I approach this trusting creature, wether I acknowlege her or not, her tail shows her appreciation for me. She is always there and always predictable.

Isn't that one of the characteristics of God too? Always there, always predictable, steady, you can count on Him everyday, and when we come to Him he leaps for joy. I thank God for sharing glimpses of himself to me through His creation...When we attune ourselves to the things of God even our dogs can show representation of Gods nature.

Thanking God for loving me and my faithful pup today.

A Birds Eye View

As this bird surveys it's surroundings from atop the roof on which it's perched; we too must sometimes step back and look at our situation from a distance. It's then we are able to see the grander picture of what is going on. Taking the time to do this reminds us that God has a plan for our lives and our present circumstances are often times a tool used to achieve the means to the end.

Take notice the cloud to the right in this picture...it's almost as if God Himself is giving the thumbs up. Looking through the lens of a camera can capture more than the eye can see at first glance, in the same way looking at our circumstances through the lens of God's plan can reveal the deeper meanings and help us through those seemingly impossible situations...All things are possible with God. It's for us to trust and believe.

The Window

Feeling the darkness inside,

Confined by the walls I abide

Built over years of time,

Keeping me from the world outside.

The window holds the view

Of all that I'd like to do

Seen from inside out

My heart longs to fly but dark brings doubt.

Wandering ever near

To the glass in panes so clear,

Evokes a burning desire

To break the walls of fear.

To open window wide

Where fear and free collide

Climbing upon the sash

Dare I spread my wings and fly?

Front Yard Cloudy Morning Sun Rise

Sun is on the rise

Breaking cloud filled skies

Instilling awesome wonder,

Dazzling the eyes.

Capturing this moment...

Of Divine surprise.

Bird Lessons

Daring to Believe

Eager little things

Waiting for the food

Their faithful Mama brings

To fill her hungry brood

Mouths open to receive,

Trusting Mama's care.

Daring to believe,

She'll always be there.

River Reflections

I pray amidst your busy days,

You take some time to breathe,

The fragrant aroma of springtime's

Flowers, it's soft and gentle breeze.

To gaze upon the landscape

That sits within your reach,

And marvel at the wonders

That God's grace gifts beseech.

Taking time for moments

To recognize His hand,

Helps us in the seeing

Of what's hard to understand.

I pray for you remembering,

Cause we all tend to forget;

The Creator of our universe

Is busy too...Working for our best.


Thank you God for friends.
