Football Anyone?

Football Anyone?

Cowboys and the Packers-

It’s football, not a fight;

Dear friends are sitting together

To make America right.

Both have different views

About how our nation should be-

Each stand for what they believe in:

To keep America free.

Yet what is freedom really?

To force our views on others?

To truly go against what we want …

And hate our sisters and brothers?

Hate is such a strong word-

But isn’t that what we do?

We look past the beliefs,

And hate people for points of view.

Couldn’t we instead be like Jesus,

And listen to their heart…

And make America great again

With a brand new start?

Begin with a game of football-

Or something that fancies your delight;

Become friends sitting together

To make America right.

Eyes Of The Storm

Ανατολή ηλίου (Sunrise)

Ανατολή ηλίου (Sunrise)

Here I lie in the darkness

But I am not afraid;

A mighty peace fills me;

God is in this place.

Here I lie in the darkness

Time says please be still;

Yet my mind is racing-

What’s my Father’s will?

Here I lie in the darkness

Nothing can I see;

Except the dreams that inspire

Jesus set me free!

Here I lie in the darkness

Reminded of my past;

From the moment of birth,

To the very last.

Here I lie in the darkness

Reminded of God’s Truth

That brings sweet Victory;

Now What am I going to do?

Here I lie in the darkness

Watching the Morning slice with Light

Reminding me it’s time to get up

And walk The Path that’s Right

A Generational Treasure

Tick-Tock, Will It Stop?

Tick-Tock, Will It Stop?

Moments away before we turn a new year;

Walking with hope, ignoring our fear.

Will anything change? That’s up to me-

To make the right choices on how to be free.

I could easily sit in my pjs all day

ordering out; having my way…

as time leaks past… waiting for none-

everyone changes… but I am just one.

I’m safe with the choices that I make;

here in my pjs, there’s no give and take…

but what if I lived through another heartbeat;

Would I be happy? Would I be me?

What would I do? What choices surround?

Would I be lost? Could I be found?

Who would I follow? Who would I teach?

What are the tools with the world I would reach?

My blood would stay red; and as long as I have breath,

what good’s pajamas as long as there’s death?

Is it really freedom in my pjs I ignore,

life around the world, just outside my front door?

Moments away before we turn a new year;

walking with hope, ignoring our fear;

may I open my eyes and open my heart;

live like my Savior from the very start!

Jesus, help me improve lives… starting with mine;

I have to hurry up now before there’s no time.

29 Years And Counting

How can I thank God for one who has been with me through thick and thin, ups and downs, back and forths, insides and outs,and sooooo much, much, much, MUCH more….and still loves me more than when we first were married 29 years ago? His voice when he speaks, his laugh when something tickles him, his heart for people, his commitment to God…..the way he feels when he holds me….. are just a few treasures I am privileged to be blessed with each day 💞 Happy 29th Anniversary Sweetheart Sam O’Donnell 💞 I love you forever and always, all ways 💞

What Shall You Then Say?

It is Saturday. The elections are over and so is Thanksgiving. I’m preparing to take an eschatology test on Tuesday. Eschatology is the study of the end times events.
My textbook states on page 35 of ‘eschatology: a study of things to come’-

“in the past God spoke… Through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through him he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word” (Hebrews 1:1-3) 
I must ask myself “How am I reflecting Christ?”
My textbook continues:
Do not let many details of end-time prophecy take your mind off your friendship and relationship with this incomparable Christ. He loves each of us so much that he left his glorious abode, came down to live as one of us, and To die that we might be set free from the bondage of sin. What a wonderful, wonderful Savior!”
I am pondering how blessed I am. Yet, so many times I’ve been so frustrated with my husband (i’m not going to name his mistakes). During those times I spent too much time and energy on being mad at him; for a time that fire consumed me, it blinded me of what I am truly blessed with-my husband loves me! I know there are things I do that he hates, but what does it truly matter? We both have our differences, and we are not God. It’s so perfect that I am not God because I judge, hate, and criticize far too quickly! Yet God, he loves me …. knowing my mistakes. He wants me to forgive quickly because, despite what I am fool to believe, life is very short! Besides, I may learn something through trying to understand my husband. 
How dare I try to think that I am better than my husband; that I can be furious with him because of a mistake! Am I perfect? No. I don’t have enough fingers to count my mistakes. Perhaps instead of adding mistakes, I should use my hands to hold my hubby, to hug him for loving me the way I am. Jesus did. He stretched out his arms because of love. It’s why he came to this earth. Not to teach us to take sides, to build walls and wage war. Jesus came to give us love. 
The same Savior who made a way for me, will one day come back for me. Will he find me full of hate and criticism, full of judgment? Or will I mirror the same love and forgiveness Christ has shown me?
So I must ask myself, if I can’t trust God to help me forgive my husband now whom God gave to me, how Can I expect God to help me through to the very End?
Will I be with those in anguish, weeping, and gnashing their teeth (Matthew 22:13) because I allowed my heart to be full of hate, jealousy and fear? Or will will I be able to rejoice in Heaven because I was victorious because I choose to mirror Christ (Revelation 21:7)?
Jesus, we need you!!

Avoiding The Garden Of Temptation 

In 100 words or less how do you think the story will go if Adam and Eve were victorious in their first temptation ? I’ll explain more in another post 😀
I’ll go first. This is how mine would look:
With smells and sights unknown to us, Adam and Eve strolled through the bountiful vibrant garden; their hands interlocked with each other’s. Their pulses were strong as their lungs pumped air freely throughout their bodies.
Waiting for them to pass by, the serpent chose the highest place in the Tree of Knowledge, for he despised crawling on his belly! This cold creature watched Adam and Eve enjoy luscious fruits and brightly coloured vegetables. He thought about how the other animals had knocked dirt in his face. So when eve was an earshot away he asked her, “has God indeed said, “you shall not eat of every tree in the garden?”
Smiling as she stood in the cool of the day, she replied, “you know, it’s best you ask God Himself, since he did make the rules.” Eve then walked away.
