Look Again

Always take a second look
before you make an assumption
of what you see.
For we don't always see
things clearly, the first time.

Friends Are Like Melons

Friends are like melons; shall I tell you why?
To find one good you must one hundred try.

for your best friend will already be there.

Rooted in Him

Each blade of grass has its spot on earth whence it draws its life, its strength; and so is man rooted to the land from which he draws his faith together with his life. - Joseph Conrad

Are You A Swimmer?

Sometimes God calms the storm.
At other times, He calms the sailor.
And sometimes He makes us swim.

A Leg & A Drumstick, Please

Hmm...this place may give
Kentucky Fried and Popeye's
a run for their money.
You think?

Evil vs. Good

When evil men plot, good men must plan.
When evil men burn and bomb,
good men must build and bind.
When evil men shout ugly words of hatred,
good men must commit themselves
to the glories of love.

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

but only God can count the number of apples in a seed.

Burned Out?

Thought: Be very careful to always pray before you "jump" into something that might "burn" you (shall I say?) in the "end".

Power to the Peaceful?

Every human has four endowments - self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom. The power to choose, to respond, to change. - Stephen Covey

Blurred Confusion


Sometimes in our confusion,
we see not the world as it is,
but the world though eyes blurred by the mind

Across the Bridge

Across the bridge, there's no more sorrow
Across the bridge, there's no more pain
The sun's going shine, across the river
And you'll never be unhappy again.

I love this old song. It was written by my husband's niece many years ago. Its words should most definitely be the cry of God's people. And even though the bridge to crossover to the other side seems some distance today; tomorrow it will be just that much closer.

Zig Zag Course

The path of progress has never taken a straight line, but has always been a zigzag course amid the conflicting forces of right and wrong, truth and error, justice and injustice, cruelty and mercy - Kelly Miller

Let's Join in the Song


I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold
I’d rather be His than have riches untold
I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands
I’d rather be led by His nail-pierced hand

Than to be the king of a vast domain
Or to be held in sin's dread sway
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today

Sewn!


Some days I feel like a pin cushion (being targeted by others to feel pain). Their needles and pins being careless words that constantly pierce my soul; while other words, cut like sharp scissors.

We must watch our words for it's no fun being pin cushion royalty, and it's hurtful to boot.

Close the Mouth, Please!


Generally speaking,
you aren't learning much
when your mouth is open.

Translation: Never miss a good chance to shut up.

Am attaching a comment according to Mervi (boy, does it fit!): "Shut up!" You are making so much noise I am not able to grasp what you wish me to understand!

Freedom in Prayer

To be a Christian without prayer
is no more possible than
to be alive without breathing.

Trust

In any relationship,
the essence of trust is not in its bind,
but in its bond.
