Thankful Thrusday...Provision

join us at Women taking a stand
Lettuce Harvested this morning.
visit Bee Bliss Blog for garden pictures

How humbling it is to come home.
Home, to have one. How wonderful it is to be needed at home.
Leaving just only for four days called my home to pine for me.
It ached for me.
Longed to be given my gentle touch.
A place to belong.
How crucial a role.

Each living thing effected by my absence
seams to rejoice at my return.

Animal, bird, plant and every flower missed me.
It is clear here, in this home, that the giver of life
has equip me to bring into this home

How very thankful I am to have a HOME to return to.

How grateful I am to see that HE needs me to create this small haven on earth.
Without my whole heart this would only be but a house.
Land without life.
Yards without beauty.

It was how it was in HIS garden.
A home.
Without Him was only toil.
Oh, but now with him is
Through Him is life.

Life flows now through me.
In every heart I touch.
In every corner.
In every room.

For this...
For this is an honor...

'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."
  • “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."
