Thankful Thursday


Hear I am just a woman, one soul of many wherry...yet he lifts me up.
Hope deferred yet heart excited at the knowledge of His will being the best thing for me...the peace of just walking into that.
Tired yet refreshed in the promise of a success at the end of each battle.
Saddened
Flawed and yet fleeing from self condemnation
How many Words the "Word" that transforms every trial into a transformation
Every battle into a skilled sword to wield better in the next skirmish
Pained in bone yet comforted in healing

Hear I am ready momentarily rested, iced to move onto the nest phase of preparation
How the ice does numb the pain.
I have every resource all needs met all promise filled
Just one woman of many who live love work and see the fruit of their labor.
Smiling at the future
Renewed like the dawn ready to begin again
Refusing to lay down my weapons and retreat, I am standing at the ready.
Strengthened in spirit. Bring it on!

Hear, I am just one woman. With One mighty God in three looking after me.
Hear. I am...

Waxing poetic :)

Praise God from whom all blessings flow

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
