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

The Battle

I am sitting here petting my cat Zoee and I notice the light is pale against the darkness. I am confident that as the day goes on the shadows will scurry. Ah, even if storms prove me wrong, I know the Sun is the center of my universe and will be here for when the storms pass. I am thankful the sun is even shining through the raging clouds to provide nutrients, it’s heat pulls water to the clouds and it is stronger than the darkness. And Zoee loves basking in it’s rays ❤

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 🙂

Saturday Stew 9

I had just come out of the pharmacy with my hubby after missing my appointment. All of life’s sadness just hit me like a torrential storm. I couldn’t stop the tears, no matter how hard I tried. Oh, believe me, I thought of ReAlLy HUGE pink spotted elephants bouncing through my head…crumpling everything! Yet, that only lead my tears to sobbing.

 

Cars really need to have window shades for moments like this! It would make millions I’m telling you! But I couldn’t hide from life.

 

My hubby drove to a coffee shop around the block known as “Fast Eddies”, which had closed about a month ago. I had made a crazy comment, which surprised my hubby (sorry ….I don’t remember 😉 ) which made me laugh, which I needed. My eyes continued to water….and we went into the craft shop (I forced myself to face life)…But the ending to this story, is that I made it through.

 

I tell you this…because you will have moments like mine too, when IT will all hit you. Child, YOU will get through.

 

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

 

What helps you through your storms of life?

Whispers To A Rainbow

A rainbow is caught
on camera;
The Sun’s Rays
speak to the rain…
whispering promises
of Truth…
revealing
It’s Faithful colors-
that The Light
is always present…
even in
the darkest hour.
For storms
last but a moment …
yet Light always
holds color;
revealed
through a prism …
which changes
our view-
moments to be
recorded in
The Scrapbook.

Be Still And Know

Something so gentle with a night’s slumber while the wind and the rain wage war; my Canopy showers me with Shelter Unknown…Come find Peace ; limited not just to Sundays and Wednesdays. Wrap up in the soft Blanket, taste the Rain, feel the lullaby of the Wind and know you have Strength for Tomorrow .
