Icecream Is Medicine

Thy Word

Thy Word
Trust is not a stand alone word,

But is accompanied by Faith;

Character and wisdom are too,

And often there is grace….
Sometimes it is difficult to accept

Words that are meant to help,

When all my emotions right now 

Want to hide me on a shelf.
But emotions can’t be trusted,

Trust is my best friend;

Along with faith and character…

Grace’ll help me win again.

The Hair On The Back Of My Neck

The Hair On The Back Of My Neck
Whether the bear stands up and gnarls his teeth, 

slamming its paws left and right;

Or the eagle raises his pinions to fly-

Looking forward to the effortless flight;

Perhaps it’s the moment the grizzly enters the cave, 

to put away his claws for a season;

Maybe it’s the time the bird finds its nest-

Eaglets are the precious reason.

I’m eager to learn from God’s creatures , No matter how frightening or majestic they may be-

For God has called us to Love;

And this is why we are Free.

Down For The Count!

Down For The Count!

Throbbing head from a fall

Because I couldn’t keep silent.

They were getting on my nerves…

Yeah, now I must repent!

But I’m in pain, I cannot move;

They hit me pretty hard!

Revenge is quite painful –

I shouldn’t have played that card!

What’s this? Ice called “grace”…

I’m to apply it to the pain?

Created to bring healing

All in Jesus’ Name.

Oh, how forgiven I am

Because God first loved me!

Grace to bring my swelling pride down

Just so I can see.

Perhaps I will share His grace

Then maybe my plank will go away

And I can see The Path to walk;

But before I make a move, first I will pray.

Saturday Stew 13

Jesus,

 

You are the Light of the world, for it is so dark here. While You were on this earth You taught us to be light, even salt.  You showed us how to live though our actions, not just by what we say. God, I pray that we can bring hope to a freezing world that is dying to hear Truth.

 

So many days have been filled with rain, but today the sun was shining here!  Oh it was glorious! I know my friends and I are still rejoicing over this day.   Yet,  this still would have been a day to celebrate, even if the clouds got in the way.  We knew the Son was still shining, we would trust.

 

How do you ask the Son to shine?

 

I start through prayer and praise.

 

Sometime it’s through blessing others with our time. Other times it’s with blessing with a phone call or a letter.  Whichever direction the Lord leads ❤

 

We just gotta do something:

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 🙂

Beside Noah

My friend OM posted this post, http://aopinionatedman.com/2014/03/28/the-daily-opinion-if-i-were-an-animal/ asking “If you could be an animal for a day what would it be?” You may click the link to find his answer, along with many other answers.

 

The first answer quickly to roll off the tip of my tongue would be an elephant because of their amazing memory and size, their strength and wrinkles….oooohhh!! Their long noses!!

 

But like I said in his post, the butterfly is so light. It can be carried by the wind, wearing such beautiful colors!!

 

The cheetah’s speed would be wildly awesome to experience, especially after a stressful moment where I just want to run and run and run with such radiant colors!!

 

When I was a child I would collect slugs. Now I think they are gross to hold…but I still think they are fun to watch…to be able to take my time, as slow as possible, enjoying nothing…yet….everything.

 

To have the coat of a giraffe with my neck held WAY HIGH, strolling silently with such nobility….greeting birds at the tops of trees.

 

The mole, a subterranean animal, stays underground most of the time and uses very little air…reusing its own air…and doesn’t rely on its vision because it’s underground a lot. If I had to depend on another part of me to get around……incredible!!! This little one is a real go getter!!!

 

To have the whale’s call; to float through the ocean….listening to the music of the deep….I’ve never been down there actually…but I’m sure it’s amazing 😉

 

To be a mouse that can run and hide quickly, reach places that others couldn’t….

 

A Liger loves socializing and has a beautiful sleek coat ….to have the paws and nails….

 

Oh, the majestic bald eagle, with its wing spans commanding the wind to carry it higher, only to drop stories into the deep water for a meal!

 

The polar bears with their ice fishing!! I LOVE FISHING!!!!

 

This may sound horrid….but I thought about a rattlesnake…I know, I know, but God made them too…I thought about the desert sands, to be able to slither across…the fangs and rattle….ok, ok….

 

1 Corinthians 12: 12 The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body–whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free–and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. 15 If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body. 21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, 23 and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, 24 while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, 25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.

 

With that being said, each and every creature, every living being-from those listed-to everyone not on the page (which….is quite a lot!!!), everyone is INCREDIBLE!! UNIQUE!! AWESOME!! VOGUE!! GQ!!

 

But, here’s the thing…if I’m busy being any of these SO VERY TOTALLY SPECTACULAR, REMARKABLE, IRREPLACABLE, EXCLUSIVE creations….then….who’s going to be me?

 

The Bible says in Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

 

Psalm 139: 13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! 18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you.

 

I praise God for each and every one of you….I read  through your blogs, they are incredible!! Inspiring!! Amazing!!  But I am also thankful that He has created me 😉 Praise God ❤
