Full Bloom

The sky is overcast with off and on showers. The temperature says it’s 40 degrees but I think it’s more closer to 35 or colder with the wind. It’s supposed to be spring out. Doesn’t that mean the air is supposed to feel more like 60’s and above with the sun shining all the time?

But you know what I saw when I took my dogs out? Buds on my lilac bush! They didn’t care about the cold temps, the wind, the gloom. These tiny buds were doing exactly what they were supposed to be doing along with so many others around the rest of the bush. Which reminds me that I need to keep my focus on what I need to be doing; blooming despite my surroundings….knowing that my petals and aroma will bring beauty, joy and pleasure to someone, somewhere……and especially our Creator ❤

Noah Movie

Have you seen the movie “Noah”? Here’s the trailer: http://www.google.com/movies?hl=en&near=Grand+Forks,+ND&dq=noah+movie&sort=1&mid=12f63fa88d09c3e8&sa=X&ei=zX5hU83QKcup8QHJ3YCoAw&sqi=2&ved=0CCsQwAMoBg

 

Well, if you’re in Grand Forks, North Dakota and are free on Wednesday nights, my pastor is going to discuss the movie starting the first Wednesday in May, comparing how it balances with what the Bible really says about what happened. If you are curious, our services start at 6:30 p.m. at Valley Christian Center 3920 Cherry Street, Grand Forks, North Dakota 58201. I hope to see you there 🙂

 

Oh, and I hear we are going to have lots of goodies afterward! Yummie!! So bring your questions and an appetite ❤

The Medicine Doctor

***Wipes away dust, coughing from excess amounts***

 

It has been far too long since I have written a post! Sure, I have posted a few awesome selections, yet….please forgive me for staying away. I have been sick and am still sick, but I have the most awesome doctors taking care of me, along with countless people praying for me, not to mention a TOTALLY COOL God healing me too. As I have in the past, my focus was on my storm, and not on the One who could calm my storm.

 

I have missed looking through your eyes, reading your posts and sharing my world with you. Saturday Stews have not been warming hearts as they should be or Flashback Fridays….those are always fun and too many have passed.

 

You all are such a beautiful treasure worth far beyond any material possession this earth has to offer and I look forward to getting to know each of you as much as I can 🙂

Mockingbird

HarsH ReaLiTy

Mockingbird you mock me through gated protection. And spit in my face with careless ease. How sweet the feeling of freedom must be to parade thus in sight of day. Careless because no one cares. Do I fear the wrath of the myriad of eyes above… below? Have I shown evidence of this fact? I will answer for myself, I have not. Remaining true to the mold that was my creator, but not my father. I am now my own guide, decisions made with whimsical thought. I glance at the idol as I murder the mockingbird with a smile. It had been done before, many times over in my mind. The doing was that much sweeter.
