Life’s Path

Some days I wonder where life is leading me…

I wish it was as easy as “following the yellow brick road!”

Yet, when I feel cloudy on the inside…

I know that God’s Son-shine will always give me hope for a new day!

Sunny Sundays

This year I’d like to create more balance in my life.  This may mean something entirely different for you but for me I’d like to have one day a week to slow down, reflect and smell the flowers so to speak!

I have decided this day will be Sunday, so I’m calling it my Sunny Sunday.

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.  Psalm 118:24

Sunday will be a day for me to read a book, write, go for a walk, take a nap or curl up with our cat on the couch.  It is a day for sunny thoughts too – so my post will be something positive such as a quote, Bible verse or poem with a little art or photograph of nature.

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Gal. 5: 22-23

I will be scheduling my post in advance so I can take a day off from blogging too.  I enjoy blogging but I need a day off from the computer.  A day to recharge my own batteries – a day to unplug.

Let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them ever sing for joy.  Ps. 5:11

May you have a Sunny Sunday and I look forward to catching up with you on Monday!

Cheers!  🙂

P.S. These photos were taken in my backyard in December 2015.  Can you count how many little birds are in the last photo?

No Vacancy?

No Vacancy?

 I wonder how a star so bright,

Could not be seen on that starry night?

The keeper of the Inn said; “Go Away,”

When Joseph knocked on his door that day.

Was he thinking, “I can’t spare the time!

Don’t ask me for another dime!

My days are short but demands are great…

Don’t add more tasks to my plate!”

What if he had stopped awhile,

And noticed Mary, due with child.

Would he have been more kind indeed

To see she was someone in need?

Or did he stare and judge the pair,

Then look away without a care?

Their clothes were worn and soiled too

They did not fit in, this wouldn’t do.

Without the Inn, prospects were dim

Yet Joseph did not surrender or give in.

He knew God had a bigger plan

One, he did not understand.

 

So he led Mary to a stable near.

I wonder did she feel any fear?

Knowing she’d give birth in the hay

Did she doubt God in any way?

I can only imagine Mary’s delight

Holding the Christ Child on that Holy night

Her fears and worries turned to joy

When she gave birth to that little boy.

Do YOU accept this gift of love?

Sent to all from God above

A Savior born is Christ the King!

Can you hear the angels sing?!

It does not cost you a dime you see

Christ paid the price for you and me.

Unlock the door to your heart today

Invite Christ in, do not delay!
