Turning the calendar page

Greetings friends.

Welcome the calendar year 2017. Though we’ve already celebrated Rosh Hashanah and the beginning of 5777,  I was eager last night to view the Psalm that would be attributed to the new page of time recording.

With all the recent messages from respected global teachers, I find an expectation and announcement of the Lord showing His plans and His nature to the world.

It would seem that this Psalm too is telling us, “Watch and see, He is gracious and faithful, with enduring love. Give Him praise!”

May this Psalm be a reminder to you of His great love and faithfulness to His covenant and heart full of love for you and your family.

Lean hard into Him and His love when you cannot see what He is doing to answer your prayers.

He is faithful and we will exult in His victories planned for our days.

Psalm 117 New International Version

1 Praise the Lord, all you nations;
extol him, all you peoples.
2 For great is his love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord.

Psalm 117 Wycliffe Bible

Alleluia. All heathen men, praise ye the Lord; all peoples, praise ye him. (Alleluia. All the heathen, praise ye the Lord; all the peoples, praise ye him.)
2 For his mercy is confirmed on us; and the truth of the Lord dwelleth [into] without end. (For his love toward us is strong/For his love toward us is firm; and the faithfulness of the Lord remaineth forever.)

Hello there, welcome to my renewal of blogging.

Life changed drastically since the blog began.  I was very surprised to get a note today that reminded me a blog was out there in internet land that had some thoughts of mine.

I am still here. I am still. I am, still. Say what? Yes, after the past season, I’m just glad that I am still here. On the other hand, I am learning to be still also.

The writing from here on is reserved for special people. If you choose to follow the writings you’ll find out why.

Quiet is underrated. 

Most have “real quiet” on our delicacy list of moments desired. Others run from quiet as if it is a feared punishment and manage to stay busy because they don’t know what they would do with what is found within if they got quiet enough to hear it.

God says, “Be still and know that I am God”.

What does this mean to you? Does this mean that in being still we will find knowledge of Who He is that can’t be found other ways? I think so.

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and the glory of kings to search it out. just sayin’

Do you long for quiet? Do you long to be so quiet that you not only hear your heart, but the Heart beat of the One who made you and loves you best?

What will He say to you in when stillness opens the golden door to a special place where your heart and the heart of God align?

What do you think?

Hello world!

Hello, welcome to my 2011 blog. It will be an ice cream blog. If you don’t like the flavor of the day, just come back and check later, your flavor may be on the menu.

Today I was thinking about some of the friendships in my life. (there is much more to be said on this, just a dip into my philosophical thought life for two seconds here)

I was fortunate to visit with a friend yesterday. We had not had much communication other than FaceBook for quite some time, but there was a time in our lives that we rallied in business together daily. Those were tough and sweet times. Time rolled on, but when I saw her, my heart was still the same in appreciation for her life as when we’d talked together daily. I love my young friend and cheer her on her journey in life to complete the destiny before her.

You know, time has a way of sifting through those that are perma-relationship friends and those that are sojourning relationships. You love both, but if you are a golden retriever friend, you have to remember that some of them are in for a season. You love them while they are there and then release them with love when you see the season change.

I have eagle friends. We each soar and sojourn to different places, but when it is time for the eagles to gather, they are there. If I call, they are there…really there, not just for a few minutes… but ready to take to the trenches till the battle cry is over.

Some are like hummingbirds that will always come back through and share their beauty with you, even for just a season or two. Others are like butterflies that stop to swap pollen or gather nectar for the rest of their journey through life.

In every one of my friends, there is a unique beauty, trait or gift that dazzles from the Creator.

Just thinking…not a doctoral dissertation here…just thankful for all the different types of friends that I have.
