Springing Up With Surprises

A Generational Treasure

The Beloved Wallet

Heart Stones To My Pulse

Heart Stones To My Pulse
Still my heart; bring me close;

Turn the volume down-

Chaos isn’t my type of music

To dance around the town.
Let me hear your voice singing

Whispering in my ear;

That you want to be next to me,

So I don’t have to fear.
My hand longs to be held …

And trace the outline of Your Face;

To feel the One Who’s rescued me-

Saved because of Grace.
With You I want to stop the clock

Together, breathe in and out

Too many things pull us away…

Try to drown us in our doubt.
Promise me before anything unforeseen happens… 

With everything you choose to get-

That you will never allow the enemy strength ….to fill you with regret.

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.

I Do

Sam O’Donnell, 28 years ago today my dad walked me down the isle, my mom (Ellen Beebee) watching with all our family and friends, as he brought me to the first day of the rest of our lives. 💕 we’ve been blessed with two fine sons (Sam O’Donnell and Benjamin O’Donnell) and many years of Grand Adventure!!!! There were times we didn’t know if we would make it, yet God was faithful to carry us through those terrifying valleys. 💕 Halleluigh!!! We now have a beautiful daughter-in-law (Kari O’Donnell)
and two sweet granddaughters, along with so many more awesome family members 💕!!! I love spending time with you in the art office or anywhere else the Lord leads because God makes sweet music when we are together…. I love the Holy Spirit’s style of classical music!!! And I would say “I do” all over again 💕 I love you!!! 💕

Moonlight Melody

Plaid tennis shoes kicking up snowflakes

under a blanket of song.

Two eyes locked with hearts dancing –

whispers echoing “I belong;

right here in your arms” –

grey whiskers, twinkling wrinkles –

we’re caught in time.

Treasure is found as all disappears,

we’re just warming up…

guarding with a passion what’s mine.

Though our wheels turn in different directions,

our hearts exist on the same Rod

Freedom is belonging to you, Sweetheart,

balanced between heaven and earth;

sealed with the promise of God.
