Hugs to My Friend

I saw you cry tonight.

Just had to hug you close.

Hope that didn’t embarrass you, really (sorry!)

I wanted to wipe away your tears, and tell you it WILL be alright.

But I’m not God.

What I DO know is His comfort.

That HE holds us in the storms.

In fact, HE HOLDS US UP.

Praying for you tonight.

That you know His comfort too.

~Hugs~

My Children

Witty. Brainy, Fun

They are beautiful in life

Creative, Loving

Laughter is good medicine!

We love to laugh and have a few favorite Christian comedians… here is one of my “hands down” all time favorites, “Nazareth.”  I’ll post others, and links to them, in the days to come.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjSaiR6NgvE&feature=related ~ Nazareth is a wonderful, culturally relevant comedian, middle eastern, talking about being in Washington, D.C. AFTER 911.  He is HILARIOUS!  Check it out!  His website is www.Nazarethusa.com.

And this one, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjSaiR6NgvE&feature=related.

Also, from “The Skit Guys” ~ www.theskitguys.com – and their take on “Adam and Eve” – http://skitguys.com/videos/item/adam-eve ~ again, ENJOY~

Enjoy and Hugs,

Surprised

I came to help, to serve, to comfort, to do well and work hard, I know He sent me… and was surprised. 

Surprised to find I am the one in need.

Surprised.

Caught off guard – finding that as I give;  you give back, generously, with more comfort and tender care than I know how to take in.

Surprised.

Shocked really, by the mingling of our pain, the hidden places that need healing, the similarities in our lives, His comfort poured out over us together.

Surprised.

To be receiving instead of only giving. I’ve been so long the giver.  I think my “receiver” is broken.

Surprised.

By the love of God, His glory on families, faithful ones, and aging; His grace poured into broken lives.  And  how well you have and do honor Him with yours.

Surprised.

By His Presence, in you.

Devotion: Waiting on God.  I love this post, and their elegant site.  Will be watching to see what else comes from this ministry.  ~Thanks for this one, Debra

“Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for Him!” Isaiah 30:18

Patience has to be one of the hardest attribute of a human character. As the society gets faster, the more faster we want things to be do. But some things only comes with time. Often we get caught up with the same thoughts regarding God’s promises, to the point that our eagerness is manipulated to become something else. That God doesn’t care for us, He has abandoned us.

How far from the truth are we? God is gracious and longs to bring fruitfulness into our lives, but His thoughts are higher than ours and so are His ways. It may not be the way we would have chosen for ourselves but it is the best way. How often do we overlook this. As a father, one of the hardest things to do is to withhold things from my son but it is necessary for him to learn and grow as a man. So it is with God’s desire for us to grow into the image of His Son, Jesus.

Make no mistake that God is compassion and desires to bless us; but His blessings isn’t for a moment’s joy, rather it is in the view of eternity. Wait for the good things that He provides for it will not disappoint.

Blessings

Scaffolding (via The View From Here)

I loved this blog, and the photos included… I had just received a very interesting “word from the Lord” through a dear friend about “scaffolding” around me, around my life. Amazing His timing!

Scaffolding A house is a major investment. Before you buy, you pray and ask God if this is a commitment you’re ready to make. You count the cost to be sure you can really afford to do this. Then you apply for a loan, scrape together a down payment, sign and initial a stack of papers, and finally, it’s all yours. You move in, unpack boxes, arrange furniture, and stock cabinets. You hang pictures and select drapes. And you add all the loving little touches ins … Read More
