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

🎶 Celebrate 🎶

I lost 10 pounds 😎 Hallelujah!!!

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.

Allways

True Valentine 

A while ago I posted this but I forgot to let you know it was my homework and I forgot to ask questions to encourage conversation. I would love to know your input!!

Romans 5:8 But God proves his love for us in that whilewe still were sinners Christ died for us.

There it sat holding one square on the brown tube. What was I to do? My teeth clenched as I pursed my lips together and shook my head. “I’m always putting a new role on! Why can’t he ever do this? It only takes a couple of moments! Now I’m stuck!” 

This is just one of my pet peeves my husband may or may not know about. There is an unwritten list I keep, sometimes I tally the offenses up. But why? What good will it do for me to keep score? I know he loves me more than life; he supports my hobbies, my healthy journey, and he will get up out of bed in the middle of the night to get me a drink or to check a noise that I heard. He knows my faults, yet loves me all the more! He is human, but I believe he’s a fine example of Jesus to me. Moment by moment he lays down his life for other people so that they may have hope, peace, joy.

A few days ago he was in Minneapolis taking a weeklong class so that he can better himself. He does this because he knows this is what God is called him to do. He studies the Bible so that he may help people.

2 Timothy 2:15 

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

I’ve been studying the Bible, taking classes, but what for? I want to help people just the same as my husband, to lighten his load. But really is it so I can be like the Israelites and use it against the one God gave me, so I can believe I’m the “better one?” 

God went to the Gentiles, because the Israelites rejected Him. I know I give my husband countless reasons to have a pet peeve list with me, yet He doesn’t remind me of it. My husband has laid down his life for me, because he loves me with an unconditional love. Maybe I too should follow Christ’s example, stop acting like a Pharisee and throw my list away.  

Have you ever felt like a Gentile…. Like people have “lists” for you to follow, yet you never measure up? If so, please explain. 

 
Or…

Do you remember a time when you felt like a Pharisee, feeling like you were better than others? If so, please explain.
