When We Speak of Peace

20180930_130115When we speak of peace, we not only speak for ourselves but also for the interests of others,

for the idea of peace is filled with wholeness, a sense of healing, a sense of safety and being protected,

a sense of being accepted, of being loved, and even having bread for our physical bodies.

May we all have peace.

Amen.

In Memory of Natalie

20190507_122103

My friend, I know you are dwelling in the light of 1 million suns now, walking with the Savior, talking, having those conversations you always dreamed about,

but I took some pictures the other day, and thought of you as I looked through the lens. I hope you enjoy them.

And I thought of how you have encouraged us so many times when we were down, with your words of light and life, and your beautiful photographs.

Thank you my friend. We miss you….I miss you. Pray for us, those still remaining…..

And Lord God, thank You for our friend….Natalie.

Amen. 

In Memory of Natalie Scarberry, a blogging friend, and source of incredible encouragement.

Within the Thunder

20160514_175724

I wonder, does God get angry within the thunder? Or is it simply a matter of heat vs. cool air?

Last night I watched the rain from our porch, as if waiting for a revelation,

but it was only a downpour, pounding on the streets, driven by wind.

If God spoke……I didn’t hear Him…….at least, not this time.

Happy Easter

20180428_172027

We are so amazingly loved……aren’t we?

And contained within

is the mystery discovered.

Even the renewal

of earth declares

the shape, the sense

of wholeness.

Happy Easter!

I have many readers with a different faith than my own, so I wish everyone here the blessings of renewal and peace!
