1. Dear Daniel (Letters from God Volume II)

emotionalpeace

Dear Daniel,

     You are My faithful and true servant. Your devotion to Me has shown that you love Me more than you love yourself. When you were taken into captivity you still remained faithful to Me. You chose not to eat the delicacies of the kings table and chose to keep your body pure and undefiled. For this you received wisdom, understanding and favor. You were also given the gift of understanding visions and dreams. A gift you would be able to use to reveal Me to those who did not know Me. For when the king Nebuchadnezzar’s dream could not be interpreted by any in his council, I gave you the meaning of his dreams and you were then able to reveal his dream to him. Through this you gained the favor of this king, but you gave the credit to me and did not claim to do…

3. Dear Esther (Volume II Letters from God)

emotionalpeace

Dear Esther,

     You are truly a beautiful young woman. Your outer beauty is only a mere reflection of the beauty that is within you. You are a beacon of light because My love lives inside of you. You have hidden from those around you who you really are. The king chose you to be his wife not only because of your appearance but because you were attractive in a deeper level. He did not know what this was because he only knew you outwardly. It was the woman I created you to be that made you be his queen.

     I Am your Maker, and I am your God. Yet the people around you have not known this. You have kept this secret, as Mordecai had instructed you. The time is coming when you must announce who you truly are. I know this is causing you to be afraid…

A STRAWBERRY AND ITS CORE

A STRAWBERRY AND ITS CORE

The Ruminant Scribe - Snapshots of God's World and Word

We were in Florida recently during the Strawberry Festival.  We were not intending to go during a festival time, rather we were visiting family.  But strawberries were everywhere!

Strawberry - with topA strawberry — sweetness in one small package!

According to Wikipedia, the garden strawberry is a hybrid species of the genus Fragaria.  It is cultivated worldwide for its fruit.  The fruit, which scientifically speaking is not a botanical berry but an “aggregate accessory fruit”, is known and loved for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture and sweetness.  The article continues to say that the strawberry is consumed in large quantities, either fresh or in such prepared foods such as preserves, fruit juice, pies, ice creams, milkshakes and chocolates. 

All this is true, but the little berry is so much more than a typewritten description presents.  It quite simply is … yummy!

Taking a little break / April 29, 2017

I am taking a little break from my writing and my art and photography. It has been a good month with a lot of positive changes. This last week was the five year anniversary of my Mother’s passing. I am okay but I still miss her very much. Grief never truly goes away when you have lost someone you love but you continue to live and the pain of the grief becomes less. There is still a hole that no one else can fill but you find joy in the memories and the time you had. God bless you all and I will be back soon.

I forgot to pray

emotionalpeace

I forgot to pray today
I woke up late this morning
so many things I have to do
I rushed through the morning
before I knew it it was noon
I had lunch on the run
This day hasn”t been much fun
The work day came to an end
But more work waited for me
when I cam home
the house was such a mess
It was dinner in front of the tv
A quick shower then off to bed
Not one thought of you
went through my head
Now weeks have passed
each day the same
life can be so hectic
it can drive you insane
so many demands
so little time
You barely cross my mind
Now months have passed
turning into years
You are but a name
that I sometimes hear
I used to talk to you for hours
my time with you was truly blessed
but…

April 23 – Hindrances to Peace

Truth2Freedom's Blog

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God” (Matt. 5:9).

✧✧✧

Sin and falsehood hinder true peace.

Just as righteousness and truth are the noble companions of peace, so sin and falsehood are its great hindrances. The prophet Jeremiah said, “The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately [evil]; who can understand it?” (Jer. 17:9). Jesus said, “From within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts and fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness. All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man” (Mark 7:21–23).

People with sinful hearts create a sinful society that resists true peace. Ironically, many who talk of peace will also pay huge sums of money to watch two men beat the daylights out of each other in a boxing ring! Our…

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

In this amazingly competitive society of ours, how many of us truly feel good about ourselves? How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we would a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

Our culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves. Yet, it is not possible for all of us to be above average at the same time. Don’t we usually know of someone richer, more attractive, “more together” or successful than we are? Even if we discount the material…
