“TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART ( not just with lip~service but wanting to)
LEAN NOT TO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING ( not just do the logical or worldly ways)
IN ALL YOUR WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE GOD ( DELIGHT to make BEST CHOICES)
AND HE WILL DIRECT YOUR PATHS” ( YOU will live in GOODNESS & MERCY)
“Goodness & MERCY do surround me ALL THE DAYS of my life because I stay close to the
the LORD ~ the KING OF THE UNI~VERSE , my best & closest guide & shepherd
THE TRUE SHEPHERD leading & guiding me in THE RIGHT PATH SO I CAN KNOW
HIS CHARACTER ( HIS NAME~ love,light,peace,counselor,mighty,prince of peace FRIEND)
from Psalm 23:1-5*
~* some of my daughters favorite Bible verses for decades & are some of mine to!
I sure do miss my children & grand children….
and so many others as I travel around the globe
in FAITH bringing HOPE to a LOST & dying WORLD!
Nothing can separate my LOVE & PRAYERS FOR THOSE I LONG FOR!
I CONTINUE TO TRUST GOD & THEREFORE I HAVE JOY FOR THE JOURNEY
& even my tears are wiped away by the grace of GOD & strangers I meet that
so quickly become friends through my friendliness~ God’s friendliness in me!
NO MATTER THE FUTURE I KNOW GOD IS WAITING WITH A SMILE &
OPEN ARMS OF LOVE ~ because THAT HAS BEEN MY PASSION & LIFE FOR
54 years & will
and YOU can have JOY for YOUR JOURNEY TOO!
“TRUST & OBEY
for there’s NO OTHER WAY
TO BE HAPPY in JESUS
but to TRUST & OBEY”
A favorite song since I was a little girl ~ probably because it was my dear Daddy’s favorite also ( though he could not carry a tune unlike my mommy who sang it to me from the cradle) Sang it to my daddy as he died by my side 22 years ago! I MISS YOU DADDY & MOMMY ~ but I have you in my heart !
It is also the song I started singing when I finally got to hold my infant son at one week old for the first time after the doctor’s said ” he is not viable” ~
I did not believe their WORDS ~ because My SON LUKE became ETERNALLY ALIVE as I sang him in to JESUS LOVING ARMS 25 years ago and buried him & my marriage as well years later ! BUT I HAVE A LIVING HOPE & EVEN JOY because someone that we LOVE
NEVER DIES….WE KEEP THE LEGACY ALIVE BY LOVING & SPEAKING ABOUT THEM
AND THEY LIVE ETERNALLY IN OUR HEART & MEMORY~….
I SEE LUKE’S EYES OFTEN in YOURS & even in MINE… HA HA HALLELUYAH
I CAN SING & BE JOYFUL …
because THE NAME LUKE MEANS, ” BEARER OF LIGHT & Knowledge”
GOD taught me more of about HIS COMFORT & LOVE IN ALL the deaths & traumas that I experienced than at any other times in my life. How grateful I am to know that GOD IS FAITHFUL and FULL OF COMPASSION & LOVE. I just have to ask & trust for THE ANSWER!
GOD COMFORTED ME SO I CAN COMFORT YOU now TOO!
ONLY TRUST & obey and YOU CAN HAVE PEACE
REAL PEACE & JOY
not matter if the teardrops flow….
Yes, it is not EASY to say goodbye but the HELLOS ARE SO WONDERFUL!
and in GOD there are not really any permanent goodbyes ~ WHEN WE SEE GOD’S EYE
EYES OF LOVE
RAINBOWS WILL REMIND US THAT ALL GOD’S PROMISES & WORDS ARE
TRUTH & LOVE!
FOR LIFE ~ FOR ETERNITY
YOUR “FATHER’S EYES” another favorite song since I was a teen~
see Amy Grant sing it then:
and decades later after her heartbreaks & through her journey…just like me
she still trusts only her “FATHER’S EYES” first & foremost…
to be a Christian is to ” share in Christ’s sufferings” ~ said Dietrich Bonhoeffer
then one day we will share all the “true riches ” of a heavenly life…and can even taste it here now…when we share our
“Father’s EYES”….look & listen with your heart nowShare this:
