Down A Different Road

»Posted by on Apr 7, 2015 in Heartfelt Treasures | 2 comments

In life, many times we drive down the same roads day after day. We pass the same houses and the same old dog sitting on the porch. The same mailboxes and barns. We become complacent and comfortable with the road. We know the road and we know where it takes us. Then, out of the corner of my eye I see a little road; more of a pathway actually. It intrigues me. It beckons me. What would happen if I turned off my familiar road and took this one instead? Where would it take me? What would I find at the end of that road? This thought repeatedly tantalizes me as I make the ½ hour drive each weekday to take my grandson to school and then back. There is this road; a.k.a dirt pathway. It takes off towards the east and I can see that it disappears into the forest. I yearn...

Tuesday @ Ten: Patience

Tuesday @ Ten: Patience

Patience… Excitedly waiting to open presents with your grandson on Christmas morning. Patience… Joyfully sitting through yet another dance rehearsal or sports practice even though there are other things you could be doing. Patience…Anxiously waiting for your teen to come home after a night out with friends, hoping, and praying that they are OK. Patience… Fearfully waiting for that phone call from the doctor after a scary medical test. Patience… Lovingly holding my hand and my heart until I am done crying and hurting. Patience… Confidently waiting for God’s direction when a major life decision must be made. Patience… Victoriously trusting and putting faith in God’s plan even when you cannot see it. Patience… I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and...

Five Minute Friday: Still

Be still, my soul: begin the song of praise On earth, believing, to Thy Lord on high; Acknowledge Him in all thy words and ways, So shall He view thee with a well pleased eye. Be still, my soul: the Sun of life divine Through passing clouds shall but more brightly shine. (words by Ka­tha­ri­na A. von Schle­gel, 1752) Psalm 46:10  Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! Psalm 23:2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my...

Tuesday at Ten: Patience

  When the kids were little we used to sing a little patience song with them.   Have patience. Have patience. Don’t be in such a hurry. When you get impatient you only start to worry. Remember. Remember. That God is patient too. And think of all the times that others had to wait for you. Even now when I type these words it brings back memories of the occasional use of the song as they were growing up. It was to instill in our kids that life is too short to fuss, worry and hurry. Take a deep breath and realize that waiting a few moments for someone or something isn’t go to kill us. Sometimes though, I need to sing the song to myself. When I have a huge list of things to accomplish during the day and “things” are just slowing me down, I don’t always...

Five Minute Friday: Whisper

Fitting in time for today’s #FiveminuteFriday. After all, it’s only 5 minutes!! #FMF is a flash mob group of wonderful ladies who take the word of the day and write for five minutes. Today’s word is “whisper”. Whisper Sometimes the most powerful emotions can be expressed in a whisper. Lean closer. Let me tell you something. Just for you. “I love you.” “Please don’t leave me.” “Will you marry me?” “You need Jesus.” “Help.” “I have cancer.” “I am going home now.” And then in the words of our LORD, from 1 Kings 19:9b-13 “Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah and said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” He answered, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God almighty. You see, the Israelites has forsaken your covenant, torn down our altars, and killed your...
