Let There be Light

Light changes everything

Have you ever sat in the quietness of the dawn watching the scene unfolding before you and everything gradually comes into focus as the sun rises into the heavens?

 Breathtaking!

Or…. have you noticed the light that filters through the tree tops, on a warm summer’s day, casting flickering shadows on the cool grass surrounding you?

Bliss!

Or…. have you observed how clouds can part and allow rays of light hit bodies of water and transform them into shimmering jewels?

 Sensational!

Light can set mood, facilitate direction and promote growth.

It’s uncanny how problems always seem bigger on cold, dark wintry or wet overcast days. And yet we can find comfort in lifting our face skywards, eyes shut, towards the warmth and light of the sun. Worries seem to diminish in the light of day.

Photographers can create masterpieces with their abilities to capture light in their photographs and make them extraordinary. Their understanding of light is important to transform the quality of the picture they are presenting.

Awe-inspiring!

Jesus, as the light of the world, offers us HOPE for miraculous change —- as light miraculously transforms the landscape and mood around us —- no matter how complex our situations are.

Inspirational!

No matter what our circumstances, Jesus in our darkest moments is a constant source of LOVE, HOPE and COMFORT. He’s the light to help us in the way ahead and He is a means to letting our personal potential

Working with the Weaver

Weaving Wonders

 

The Weaver

My life is but a weaving between my Lord and me;

I cannot choose the colours but He works on steadily.

Often times He weaves in sorrow and I in foolish pride

Forget He see the upper, and I the underside.

Nor till the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to to fly,

Does God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful as the weaver’s skilful hands,

 As the threads of gold and silver on the pattern He has planned.

He knows. He loves. He cares– Nothing the truth can dim

He gives the very best to those, who leave the choice with Him.

Purposeful Positivity

I love being positive. It’s good for the soul. Today I was looking for birthday verses and found this nifty little gem of positivity I’d love to share with you:

How could one not be positive with this little bit of nonsense to lead the way?

Naturally…. my word for today is… “POSITIVE!”

I WILL live in joy!

Wishful Wanting

Dear Santa,

 This year I don’t want any material gifts delivered under my tree. I have so many wonderful things in my life- most of all good health and happiness. Could you please send me the things that I am requesting below  …….

I would like :

 No more lives torn apart,

That wars would NEVER begin….

 …. and the wars raging now would cease.

And that time would heal all hearts.

 Everyone would have a caring friend,

And RIGHT would always win.

And LOVE would never end.

              Shut Up I’m Still Talking ( via our nephew Philip)

Thank you Santa in anticipation of a “HOPE FILLED” Christmas for myself and 

everybody else on earth.

Your Friend

Love and Nature

Nurturing Nature

 My attempt at poetry…. if the words don’t rhyme it’s not poetry for me.

Nature Love

I love fluffy clouds

As they float on by.

 I love the azure blue

Of the day lit sky.

My love is for wildflowers,

Beauty of my dreams,

My love is for the musical babble

Of fast moving streams.

I so love the birdsong

In mornings so cool.

I so love the coldness

Of a deep mountain pool.

Scudding cloud beauty,

Wildflower spread,

Running water babble,

Brings peace to my head.

Stopping to smell the flowers sometimes makes one focus on other beautiful things around and about.

Purposeful Prayer

The Knots prayer………

Dear God

Please untie the knots

that are in my mind,

my heart, and my life.

Remove the have nots,

the can nots, and the do nots,

that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots,

may nots,

might nots that may find

a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots

would nots and 

should nots that obstruct my life.

And most of all

 Dear God

I ask that you remove from my mind,

my heart, my life, all the am nots 

that I have allowed to hold me back,

especially the thoughts

that”I am not good enough“.

Amen.
