Lord, the world is so full of beautiful things The sights and sounds of all that life brings How quickly we adore created things Before the one who brought all into being. Lord help us to remember what must come first Bind our hearts to Yours and teach us to thirst For the things that [...]

Pure Joy

Pure Joy

I really like the sound of pure joy. How about you? Pure joy sounds amazing actually. While looking through my drafts, the following verse spoke to me. However, I wasn’t feeling that pure joy. Infact, I was feeling quite dry, which is ironic considering all of my water metaphors lately.  Yes, dry, burnt out, and [...]

Look at the colours! Fallen leaves can be so lovely. Every season has it's signs that change is coming. The Lesson of the Fig Tree “From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near." Matthew 24:32 Jesus: A Sign that [...]

Power Outage

Power Outage

I'm not a big fan of sudden, unexpected power outages. As the case may be they're almost always sudden and unexpected. Life is the same way.

I love it when this happens. I'm also so glad that He does. I would miss so much. In those moments I'm quite inspired and [...]

It's BEEn a while since any bees have made an appearance on my blog. Bees are important; they help trees to bear fruit. Here are some photos that I've taken over the years of these fuzzy fliers.

Waking a bit melancholy isn't abnormal for me, but I've been surprised a few times to wake up and smile at the day. Last Saturday was a bit of a melancholy start, but Jesus gave me something to smile about right away.  Next, I spent quite a bit of time with Him meditating on His [...]
