Just imagine a life free from crime, cruelty, terrorism, injustice, hatred, devastating accidents of all kinds, uncaring people of all kinds also. Imagine no harsh words, no grudges, nobody turning their back to anyone. Just imagine a life encompassing the complete opposite of these all too common deeds. Wouldn’t it be great to live in a perfect world? Just imagine. Happy Saturday.
Life can get us down sometimes; we get sad, depressed, tired, lonely, in pain, and the thought that we cannot tolerate another bad news story or take another step on the road of life sometimes leaves us feeling totally helpless. When it happens to me I think of this picture and see myself as the lamb around His neck. Happy Monday.
Following is one of the meanings of the word supernatural as found in The Mirriam-Webster Dictionary: departing from what is usual or normal especially so as to appear to transcend the laws of nature
Having said that, would the following narrative meet that criteria?
Friday, May 8th would have marked the 66th anniversary of the date I married the father of my five children. His name was Bill Boyes and he died in 1992. While having breakfast Friday morning, I silently said, “Hey, Bill, if you remember this would have been our 66th anniversary, could you let me know in some way?”
Later, while watching the noon news, a fire captain was describing a house fire. His name came up on the screen….BILL BOYES.
Was that supernatural?
Many years ago, 1976 actually, I said these exact words to God, putting my life in His hands and leaving it there. It was the best decision I ever made. Happy Sunday.
We may ask what is so good about Good Friday when it was the day Jesus was crucified. It is only in hindsight that the answer is found. If Good Friday hadn’t happened we would not have Jesus with us today. This is something I can’t even imagine. Although it is heart-wrenching to think of His suffering, it is heart-warming to know that He didn’t live and die but He died and lives. Happy Good Friday.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
I blogged this song at Easter time in 2017 but we need to hear it again now in these surreal times. Get well, world.
Although the world looks dark at the moment with all the closures, social distancing, dying, frustration, anxiety, etc., when I think of my family and friends and the closeness we can still share via social media it brings a smile to my face and hope to my heart. This little image is for all of you who light up my life.
In the summer of 1999 I heard the hymn. I the Lord of Sea and Sky. I’m sure I had heard it many times before , but this particular time it touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I had just retired from business and wondered, ‘what next’. It didn’t happen overnight but gradually my life became that of caregiver, prayer giver, Elder, and whatever else God laid on my heart to do. It is 2020 and I am still holding His people in my heart. TYG. Happy Sunday.
To follow up on last Wednesday’s blog, I found another angel song that touched me; and also another scripture about angels. I’m so happy to find my angels again. Happy Saturday.
Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. Revelation 5:11
Music can have a healing and comforting effect when life serves up unpalatable portions of insomnia, depression, anxiety, health issues, and other problems that rob us of a peaceful and fulfilling life.
Here is one of my favorite songs that brings comfort when any of the above threaten my well-being.
