Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

He is Alive!

Easter...Resurrection...my sins paid for on the cross.  This season always puts me in a quiet mood, as I spend time before the Lord.  This year, this season was even more precious, as my eight-year-old participated with more understanding.  Our devotionals walked the road to the Cross, the Grave and the Empty Tomb.  His tender heart convicted me more than once.  My readings from Bread and Wine - Readings for Lent and Easter, brought my spirit and soul much needed reflection.

I pray this season, you too, will hear His voice and rejoice in the truth of the cross and the resurrection.

Happy Easter!!

I am learning how to do InstaGram and I have been posting pictures from my decorating job.  Somehow I just can't get it all done these days. I do so miss blogging and hope to be back soon.

As I prepare my heart for the Easter/Passover season I heard this song.  As in the past, I love to share the songs that are stirring and strengthening my walk with my Savior.  After the meeting on Human Trafficking I needed to be reminded that God is still on His throne and holds us all in His hands.

 I hope you are encouraged by these words and song.  Here is my Sunday Singing, dedicated to my Grandmother.

Words and music Newsboys

In this time of desperation
When all we know is doubt and fear
There is only One Foundation
We believe, We believe
In this broken generation
When all is dark, You help us see
There is only One Salvation
We believe, We believe

We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He's given us new life
We believe in the crucifixion
We believe that He conquered death
We believe in the resurrection
And He's comin' back again, we believe

So, let our faith be more than anthems
Greater than the songs we sing
And in our weakness and temptations
We believe, We believe!

We believe in God the Father!
We believe in Jesus Christ!
We believe in the Holy Spirit!
And He's given us new life!
We believe in the crucifixion!
We believe that He conquered death!
We believe in the resurrection!
And He's comin' back again!

Let the lost be found and the dead be raised!
In the here and now, let love invade!
Let the church live love our God will see
We believe, We believe!
And the gates of hell will not prevail!
For the power of God, has torn the vail!
Now we know Your love will never fail!
We believe, We believe!

We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He's given us new life!
We believe in the crucifixion!
We believe that He conquered death!
We believe in the resurrection!
And He's comin' back,
He's comin' back again!
He's comin' back again!
We believe!
We believe

I Want It NOW!

The joys of grand parenting can't be measured.  This grand mommy is taking in every minute and hiding each one in her heart. 

This past weekend we had the joy of having our grandson sleep over.  He will be turning three in a week and just like my own children, three seems to come roaring in with "I am INDEPENDENT!"  He expressed his independence this weekend.  "I want to walk by myself" he announced as I tried to hold his hand.  I remember well looking at my own with a giggle.  There they were, so pint size, and yet they would proclaim their independence to someone who stood several feet taller and out weighed them.

We took our little "independent" guy to church.  Ben dressed him and then he robbed Grand Mommy's jewelry chest for beads and bracelets.  Grand Daddy did stop him from wearing them into church.  He did wonderful in his class, yet as we stepped out of the church he again expressed his independence.

He wanted to see a donkey.  He was convinced a donkey was in the pasture next to the church.  He goes to see a donkey regularly and I am sure the environment looked the same.  However, there wasn't a donkey in the field next to the church.  We tried to explain there was no donkey. In his three-year-old independent voice he says, "I want to see a donkey, NOW!"  Grand Daddy and Grand Mommy just looked at each other with a giggle.  Then he said, "okay then I am shutting my eyes!"  This little man was making his statement.  If we didn't produce a donkey NOW then he was going to walk with his eyes shut!  Again we weren't impressed with his demands.  We calmly continued to walk to the car as he stumbled around with his eyes close, which even became funny to him.  He made it to the car, because he has two older and wiser grandparents helping to direct his path.

I am so much like my grandson.  I look up at God and demand, "NOW!" through my own unbelief.  I impatiently don't want to wait for His timing and, therefore, I close my eyes!  Yes, I close my eyes and start to stumble around.  He lovingly watches and continues to guide me even through my announcements for "independence."

But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— I Corn. 2:9
