Thankful Thursday

Walking the path to follow the light of where we ought to be...
I am thankful for the light

Today while serving in the capacity of volunteer doing Art Masters to a second grade class they opened up. To the children came wisdom.
"what do you feel"? I asked them . With a painting called "face to face" by Klee, we began to learn of being what I call true faced.
A child who was lastly to share spoke with shaky voice. Thus only after I had maintained a respect each other boundary where each child was heard without interruption.

M"My mothers boyfriend beats her. I feel afraid".
Spoke this child.
This child spoke.
Risk was made safer for her for the light of my path this day lead to a moment of freedom for a child.


A child not unlike your own, or even that one who abides within you waiting to risk being 
"true face" 
To be heard.

He hears you.

That is so comforting, isn't it?

You have such a loving spirit and that child felt that, that poor child has to endure such a very hurtful thing takes place in her home, a place where a child should feel the safest, Now God will start healing the process for this little angel, I hope doors will open for her so she can get some kind of professional help, my real father use to beat my Mom and I can so remember that feeling, and its horrible to feel useless when your little.God ALWAYS puts use where we need to be at the right moment, doesn't he.

Sweet & gentle hugs~

I'm so glad you were there for this child. I pray the mom will see what this is doing to not only her but her child(ren) and stop living with this man.

Thankful for you, my friend. Giving thanks for you.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• 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."
  • “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
