What Lies Beyond?

There is more to us than we know.
If we can be made to see it,
perhaps for the rest of our lives
we will be unwilling to settle for less.

Feel Like Travel'n On?

If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light.
Take off all your envies, jealousies,
unforgiveness, selfishness and fears.

Daring to Truly Live

To dare to live alone is the rarest courage; since there are many who had rather meet their bitterest enemy in the field, than their own hearts in their closet. - C.C.Colton

A Great Month of July

The month of July was a great one. We were blessed to spend time with all three of our grandchildren. In fact, the three were at our house at the same time, which is a miracle. Here's my loves: Madison, Cassidy, and Preston.

Dare to Live

To dare to live alone is the rarest courage;
since there are many who had rather meet their bitterest enemy in the field,
than their own hearts in their closet. - C.C.Colton
It is my thought that it is not in the crowds that we find ourselves but in the stillness of our refuge where our hearts become as one with The Savior.

Just A Thought

Could this be the eve of the sun setting on the Harvest?

He Is Our Cover

He will cover you with His feathers.
He will shelter you with His wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

Season of the Shaking

Ancient 1000 year-old Olive Trees in Israel

When looking around to the affairs of our world, our nation, and our state, we are reminded of the scripture, "Everything that can be shaken, will be shaken". Words expressed to alert us that when things begin quaking to hold on with all our might. 

Upon looking around it is apparent that I am being shaken, you are being shaken; in fact, everybody is being shaken. Although we have no control of life's circumstances, we have no need to panic or fear. The Shaking of the Olive Tree is the Lord's way of awakening a determination to dig in and plant our roots deep in His truth and His keeping.

There are two types of shaking now taking place: (1) the shaking of God's people readying themselves for the harvest; and (2) the shaking of those without the Lord to awaken them before the time of the harvest.

Yes, there is a whole lot of shaking going on but we are overcomers through our love and commitment to the One allowing the shaking. We can be partakers of the harvest.

The Force that Holds - PRAYER

Duct tape is like a force.
It has a light side, a dark side,
and it holds the universe together
- Oprah Winfrey

It holds refrigerators together too!

But truly it is PRAYER that holds the universe together!!!
