Clap Your Hands


Today is the last day of February! It brings a smile to my face and joy to my heart. Spring is on the way! Even the trees of the fields will soon clap their hands as Isaiah tells us. Enjoy the day, whatever it holds for you, and be sure to clap your hands as you envision Spring in the air and Covid-19 out of it. Happy Sunday.

“You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. . ” Isaiah 55:12 NIV

That Added Touch


One of the life questions I’ve been asked is, “How did you get the peace you seem to have?” Looking back over my life, there was a time in my forties and fifties, when my mantra was, “God loves me and has a wonderful plan for my life.” The one-liner was never far from my thoughts and became exactly what a mantra is…a statement repeated frequently.

One of my favorite songs at that time was “He Touched Me”. It was always the added touch I needed. Happy Sunday.

Something About Romans


Do you have a favorite book in the Bible? I have several but today will lean on the book of Romans which has been a blessing to me for many years. Here are a few scriptures from that book.

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12:2

Love must be sincere. Romans 12:9

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12

Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Romans 12:15

Live in harmony with one another. Romans 12:16

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Romans 12:18

It would be wonderful to hear about your favorite scriptures. Happy Sunday.

 

Just for Today


It’s been awhile since a poem has composed itself in my mind and with never knowing what the next day will bring in this world of uncertainty, here is Just For Today:

Just for today…

may your sun shine a little brighter,

may your pain be less severe

may your eyes behold the beautiful

may sweet sounds fill your ear

may your thoughts be full of gladness

may good things come your way

may your heart be filled with love and peace

just for today.

 

Peace Be With You


In the midst of a pandemic, peace be with you.

In the midst of protests, peace be with you.

Missing the human touch, peace be with you.

If you are still staying home, peace be with you.

Whether the day be sunny or gray, peace be with you.

Happy Saturday.

 

A Sunday Prayer


Breathe on us breath of God as we welcome your Holy Spirit into our hearts.

Make us aware that talking about you is not the same as talking to you. Help us to do both.

Help us to overcome the obstacles that prevent us from enjoying a relationship with you.

Help us to trust you with the problems we face and the decisions we make.

When we are depressed and anxious help us to feel your love, peace, and presence.

When we lose our sense of compassion, remind us of your compassion for us.

Make us humble enough to know that without you we are incomplete.

Remind us to pray for one another that you would replace our grief with peace, our sickness with healing, our poverty with prosperity, and our self centeredness with thoughts of others.

Grant us the grace to live this day in your strength. Amen.

Happy Sunday.

 

 

 

Peace


Sometimes we just have to conjure up a peaceful scene to experience a peaceful moment, or read a scripture that will bring the same result: John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. Wishing you a peaceful and happy Sunday
