ORIGINAL ART  & INSPIRATION FROM PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

A babbling brook makes its way through the troubling rocks of life,

Yet nourishing as it bounces back and forth over them,

Within each of us is the ability to bounce back,

To regenerate,

To renew

To restore,

To reenergize and revive,

Not only within ourselves,

But through the paths we take through life,

Through those we meet along the way,

Through our reactions to the storms,

The fears,

The broken dreams,

We all have the ability to shine,

Our light can be  beacon for another,

It can give hope in time of adversity,

Time of hopelessness and despair,

Because the morning star is the brightest star,

It will last even through the darkest day,

Shine!

Not Missing Out

Great post here from Muffy. Are “flying under the radar,” trying to do what is comfortable? Are we willing to step out in live for our Savior and do what He really has called us for? Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy!

The Excitement Plan

So, I’m going back to school. Finally going to finish up that degree that was put on hold 24 years ago when the kids started coming.

I have mixed feelings about this – excitement, certainly, because I love school. No, but really. I love taking classes. Like, probably too much. I’m the one sitting in the front row with two different colors of pen and a stack of post-it tabs.

On the other hand, I’m a little chagrined. I’m keeping it on the down low. Because I’ve been the local English Teacher in my homeschooling community and I’m pretty sure everyone assumed I had at least a BA in English if not an MA. I never told anyone that, mind you. I said things like, “I was an English Major.” But I never said I had a degree.

But they assume. Which is weird, come to think of it, since…

SHADOWS OF TIME

We all grow older, unless of course we go home early. Things happen, friends and relatives pass, and we just wear out. It’s encouraging to know that this is not the end, and that some day we will be brand new and improved. In the meantime, no matter our state in this life, God still has a work for us all.

ART & INSPIRATION FROM PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

The shadows of time have crept slowly and insidiously into this old vessel,

Sometimes in dreams I see mansions filled with treasures and beauty beyond belief,

Streets lined with gold and abundance everywhere,

No sorrow, no pain, no loss,

My eyes dim, my body grows weak,

It seems I should be coming close to the end of my days,

In those moments of weakness,

I see that God isn’t finished with me yet,

I wonder what He has planned for me today.

Redemption

I, of course, love any discussion about the humanity and divinity of our Lord, and this was a good one for sure from Salvageable. Comments close here; blessings and enjoy!

Salvageable

“(I believe) in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.”

Luther explains, “What does this mean? I believe that Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true man, born of the virgin Mary, is my Lord, who has redeemed me, a lost and condemned person, purchased and won me from all sins, from death, and from the power of the devil; not with gold or silver, but with His holy, precious blood and with His innocent suffering and death, that I may be…

Prayer Doesn’t Work?

Nothing to add here, just enjoy. Comments closed here

See, there's this thing called biology...

This is heavy stuff, I shall try to lighten it up a bit, but the recent church shooting and tragedy sparked a few foolish tweets and proclamations that declared, “praying doesn’t work,” a theme that bounced all over the media. The idea being that your prayers won’t save you, so we need more guns or even less guns, as people struggled desperately for answers.

Praying does work, praying is so hugely beneficial it’s hard to even describe. Praying may not save your earthly life, but then again, many earthly lives  have been saved by prayer. Praying doesn’t always stop a mad gunman, but in the back of the Christian mind, a mad gunman does not have the power to stop our “lives” anyway. Our lives are eternal.

It’s a grim reality, but sometimes prayer is really all we got. When it comes to “justice,” once some guy is dead or…

Ungrateful

This was a powerfully moving, and convicting story. It raises some questions…..are we really, truly reaching out to people or just tossing them platitudes and walking away feeling very special about the “wonderful” thing we have done?

My God, My Music, My Life

I walked by him at least twice a day.  More often than not it was closer to six times a day. He was always in the same spot, always wearing the same clothes and always staring down at the ground.

Anytime that I would walk by and I had some change I would drop it in his hat. He would never look up. He never said thank you. As a matter of fact, I never heard him say anything. I was usually on the go or on my phone or talking to my co-workers so I might not have heard him if he did, but I really don’t think he did.

After a few weeks of dropping change, I decided to do an experiment. I started off dropping one dollar bills in his hat.  When he didn’t react I started dropping fives. Then I would drop a ten spot here…

Your Face Will Stay That Way

On one side are those who think that, with the right faith, we can bend God to OUR will. One the other side are those who won’t even ask God for anything because, “Thy will be done.” The truth is not at those extremes, but somewhere in a middle we don’t necessarily fully understand. Great thought here from Dave Peever. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy!

Live 4 Him

Parent go to lines are a dime a dozen; a dime a dozen is also one of my parents’ go to lines. Much of what we have learned started with some type of logic. The problem is, logic as a starting point does not guarantee logic as the foundation of the final conclusion.

In Joyful Reverence

Nothing to add to this at all. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy!

joyindestructible

Father, fill this weary heart,

With your Spirit, your presence!

Infuse my mind with reverence,

Beyond ideas of human art!

May an aroma, a Holy essence,

Melt my anxious heart!

This day is a new start;

Live for you in Holy reverence!

Break sin’s pride apart,

By awareness of your presence!

Heaven is more than severance,

The gift of a new heart!

Bear Jesus’ Name in reverence,

By Holy Spirit, not apart!

No Jesus in carnal heart!

In Jesus, I enter God’s presence!

Praise from faith’s heart,

Grateful raise in pleasing essence!

Worship offer in awed reverence,

Giving day a joyful start!

HOW TO MAKE SURE GOD ISN’T JUST YOUR ‘GOD’ LUCK CHARM…

As I have oft repeated….God is NOT some giant Cosmic Candy Dispenser, where we put in a tithe or a prayer and get a prize. He the Creator God of the Universe, yet He still wants a personal relationship with each member of His Creation. Good stuff here from Altdric Johnson. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy!

BE BLESSTIFIED!

God wants a REAL relationship with us. It’s almost become cliché to say that He wants relationship and not religion, but it’s very easy, if we aren’t careful to slip into…

Religion…

Ritual…

Even let our faith be reduced to Superstition…yes just like a rabbit’s foot… a good luck charm.

It’s easy just to go with the flow of what you’ve been taught growing up.

It’s easy to ‘come to God’ simply because you are looking for something (not necessarily someone) to make your life better, or to get it on track.

It’s easy to worship and go to church because you think it’s the right thing to do.

But, God wants to just as real to us as the people in our lives, and to be treated as such.

You spend quality time with the people you love. You communicate with the people you love (communication is talking and…
