Courage ….

~Courage~ There are times when we need to speak about things that make us feel uncomfortable. Things happen, things may not sit well with us, but that doesn’t always mean that they need to be spoken of. Often it’s just something we need to process ourselves and work out our own thoughts or beliefs. But, there are times when these things can become something we keep coming up to, we walk away and it comes back to us, they can become a stumbling block, things that begin to trip us up. When I say stumbling blocks, I am not referring to things that cause us to sin, but rather things that are getting in the way of our journey forward. Stumbling blocks can also become obstacles when they remain and continue to block our path forwards, and when stumbling blocks become obstacles then there is an impasse. Finding the courage…

Learning material…

~Learning material~ Life has enough learning material for many life times! What we learn today we can take into tomorrow. If we don’t take it in tomorrow it wastes the learning material. Every lesson is valuable and sometimes only years later do we see the value in the lesson. The lessons of the people around us are also invaluable… Usually we need to learn things for our self but in seeing the lessons of those around us is an amazing resource that we don’t have to pay for! We all pay for our experiences one way or another… and when we learn from another’s experiences at least most of the time we don’t have to pay for that! We do however pay for our own learning materials… we pay for them or we are paid… they either take something from us or give something to us. Sometimes a hard lesson is…

Using our allotted time…

Using our allotted time…. How long is a lifetime? A lifetime doesn’t always end up being the length of what we thought a lifetime would be… We can be here one day and gone the next… nothing is guaranteed so what do you want to make it count for? What is it that you were gifted with to give? To give yourself… to give your family… to give your community… Live with a passion to release that and spread around the fragrance of it wherever you go! My passion is to share the hope that I have found, the peace and purpose I have found in Jesus and to be a light so that those looking for the light will know where to come, and when they come I pray that I will always know what to give them, the right words, love, empathy, care and compassion. None of these is…

The Man in the moon….

.ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ. The Man in the Moon… Out for a walk in the big old moon is shining on me. A huge beautiful Moon and it was only 18 March I thought the full moon was later or earlier in the middle? This morning God is the moon, quietly peacefully watching me everywhere I go. While I have been rushing around this huge beautiful moon has been quietly standing by and God is showing me that he is there with me all the time at every turn. I may not notice his presence because I’m so busy running around with all the things that demand my attention while God who is a gentleman Waits patiently for me to look up. The sun by day the moon by night. Whether I notice them or not they are overshadowing me. The sun is the one that shines brightly…

Feeling chased by life…

ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ. Feeling chased by life…. I am being chased…. I am being followed… I can hear the footsteps I quickly glance over my shoulder as I hurry on… No I am not imagining it… Do you ever feel like this? I don’t usually have this sensation, but these last few weeks I have had those reactions which to me are tell tale signs of feeling I need a break. I have been through seasons in my life where I hid, I ran so to speak, I cringed at all the things that were requiring of me and for a season at that time I just backed off from certain things. It was almost like an involuntary reaction. I felt really bad about running from some of the things that I ran from back then… I still feel bad for running now… I am sensing a…

Peace within these borders…

ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ.   Peace within these borders… Perhaps the greatest longing that I have for is for peace within my borders. Truly priceless, of value, to be highly prized.We may at times not be able to control a lot, but there are things that we can do to remove some of the things that open the door to strife, fear, hopelessness and disappointment into our life. If we remove the elements that open these doors then that is the place to start…What are the elements that give permission to those things that remove peace to come in? I have written lately quite a few times about this peace…. this peace is priceless, especially when we are unable to control the things happening around us, to be able to find peace within can change everything… I wonder if this peace is not all that different from a hiding place,…
