Quote I Came Across Today

“Great results cannot be achieved at once; and we must be satisfied to advance in life as we walk, step by step.”

-Samuel Smiles

The Original Lie

Originally posted on Write At Home:

The Ongoing Original Lie


“Ye shall not surely die.”

Throughout history, satan’s lie.

But we always lose, never win,

by becoming entangled in sin.


Go ahead. Give the world a try.

“Ye shall not surely die.”

But sin, disguised as a thriller,

is in truth, a treacherous killer.


Just partake of that fruit one time.

Surely that can’t be a crime!

“Ye shall not surely die”

is the devil’s alluring cry.


When satan whispers in your ear,

be warned, it is to set a snare.

That grand fib we must deny.

“Ye shall not surely die.”

Genesis 3:4  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

3:5  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

3:6  And when…

Fools Gold Or Wealth Untold?

Originally posted on Write At Home:

The Bible calls this man a fool,

with God’s non-existence, his rule.

But to me, God is treasure

of invaluable measure

and His Word, a rare, precious jewel.





Psalm 14:1  <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.



Ephesians 3:8  Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;



Psalm 119:72  The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.



Proverbs 13:7  There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.

The One Constant

IMG_1148 edit109 Those kiddos! I love them dearly. God has reminded me from time to time that they really are not mine. They are His! I’m thankful He has given my husband and I the privilege to raise them. I know one day, if the Lord tarries that they will leave “the nest”. One day I was thinking about this and wrote the following poem.

There’s a truth at times brought back to me of which I have long known,

my children, though so dear to me are really not my own.

They have been such a part of me. I hold them close in heart,

but they’ve belonged to God above right from their very start

. We’ve many happy memories. We’re bound by love’s strong cords.

Yet there’s no escaping the fact that they really are the Lord’s.

The little girl is replaced by a woman. That young boy has become a man.

My prayer and desire for them is that they live to fulfill God’s plan.

And though the time will come when they leave the proverbial “nest”,

I trust in their Creator to lead them in the way that is best.

Things will change as the kids grow up. They may become husbands or wives.

I pray there will be one constant thing,

Jesus, the center of their lives.



Take Off

Fear Knots or “Fear Nots” ?

Originally posted on Write At Home:

Are fear knots or “fear nots” guiding your way

when it seems your path is filled with dismay?

At trying times you must make a choice

to whom you will listen, which voice.

As life’s circumstances you closely survey,

Are fear knots or “fear nots” guiding your way?

Is anxiousness the only sound heard,

or are you tuning in to God’s Holy Word?

Down the human path you are called to trod.

When the testing comes, does it seem rather odd?

Are fear knots or “fear nots” guiding your way?

Will adversity cause you to earnestly pray?

Trials will come, a fact that is sure.

Abiding in God is the only true cure.

When perplexity knocks will your soul find a stay?

Are fear knots or “fear nots” guiding your way?

Pounces on you

You try to run

You try to hide

Hide the shame

Hide the truth

Truth that hurts

Truth that wounds

Wounds that fester in the heart

Wounds that tear a life apart

Apart from God

Apart from mercy

Mercy can refuse

Mercy also beckons

Beckons softly

Beckons tenderly

Tenderly His voice

Tenderly it calls

Calls for repentance

Calls me to an altar

Altar of humility

Altar of confession

Confession brings release

Confession brings peace

Peace floods my soul

Peace like a river

River that flows

River of life

Life that’s worth living

Life meant for giving

Giving of self

Giving in service

Service to others

Service to God

God of love

God of hope

Hope for tomorrow

Hope in my sorrow

Sorrow that comes

Sorrow that goes

Goes in God’s time

Goes in God’s season

Season of revival
