The Little Things

Image Are you on a quest? Have you searched everywhere? Does the cost seem too high? Don’t give up. Look around. It may be right in front of you. Have you ever experienced the love of a puppy? Felt the adoration as he lathers your face with kisses when you walk in the door? Have you viewed the heartbroken stare as you leave for the day? A little love is an awesome thing. What about the laugh of a child? How it can lighten your heart and make your troubles fade away? Have you seen the sparkle in her eyes while she dances in the living room? A little laughter is an amazing thing. Then there’s always the wonder of a starlit night or the brilliance of the sea. How about the fragrance of the yellow rose? Even the shifting sands of the Sahara may offer something for the soul. A little beauty is a marvelous thing. Keep watching. Remember, don’t give up. It may be right in front of you. Proverb 3:5 “Trust in…

Another Day

Image As I roll over and struggle to turn my alarm clock off, I rebel against the rising sun. I bury my head under the covers. The pain shoots through my body and I wonder how I can face the day. 2 Corinthians 1:7 “And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.” The shower pours over me and I start to feel a little more human. I lather my hair and the smell of lavender fills the air. As I stand under the spray, I close my eyes to let the heat seep into my bones. Isaiah 58:11 “The LORD will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought, And strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.” I study my reflection in the bathroom mirror while I dry my hair. The shadows under my eyes are less prominent this morning. I slept a little better last night. My new bed is a definite plus. I walk into the kitchen to see my husband …

Who's Listening?

Image I hate her! I wish she would just leave me alone. Are these words familiar? Where have you heard them? Do they ever float around in your mind or pass your lips? I’ve heard them many times. Thanks to God for His forgiveness, I’ve spoken them as well. I pray with all my heart that no one else does. Why? Because you never know who’s listening. Colossians 3:8-10 “But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” I can hear the questions now. Why would she say something so mean? She could really do that? Gasp! For the record, it was before I became a Christian and I was a child but I still remember the day like yesterday. A friend and I had an awful fight and said horrible things to each other with disrega…

Why Should I?

Why should I forgive her? Why should I care if he’s sorry? Why should I even bother doing this job? Why should I be his friend?

2 Corinthians 5:15-16 “And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view…”
