As I watched the geese come across the yard this morning I noticed how they seemed at peace with no worries as though they knew they were safe here I begin to recall how the word speaks of peace & how the Lord gives us peace in our surroundings

Psalms 4:8 tells us I will both lay me down in peace and sleep for thou Lord only, makest me dwell in safety

it is a good feeling to know we can have peace when we lay our head down at night, whatever storm we face he gives us strength to face it & through that strength he sends peace like a mighty rushing wind

Psalms 29:11 The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.

1 Peter 3:16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.


I love this scripture as it reminds me as long as we are doing what we know to do right there’s no need to worry about those who falsely accuse for it will out weigh all the negatives

this weekend many dads grand dads & great grand dads will be showered with love , gifts & family, I pray for my friends & family members whom recently lost their dads & that this special day the memories will out weigh the pain, I am thankful to still have two amazing men in my life, the love of my life of 40 yrs, paw paw to 8, God has showered us with mercy throughout the years & we are truly blessed, the years are taking their toil on my sweet little daddy, today he struggled to read his cards yet his conversation was sharp, yes our family has troubles, heartaches & pain like any other family but it is because of that Amazing Grace we can see light at the end of the tunnel

What comes to mind  when you hear the word “instilled”? such a little yet powerful word

INSTILLED: to introduce by gradual prersisant efforts, to pour in drip by drip

as I pulled out my quilt to work on, my granddaughter's  asked what is that & can I help?, I begin to tell them how I had quilted that with my Aunt & how she taught me to quilt the old way no fancy short cuts for her &  how we’d had it on 100 year old frame & how she is why I love to quilt

so as you can probably guess by now we were off to Wal-Mart for extra hoops as I’d forgotten my huge one


Proverbs tells us that if we train up a child in the way he should go when they are old they will not depart from it (Prov.22:6)

I smile as I think am I instilling the love for quilting in them along with other things like cookie making  which was instilled from the beginning as they’re always asking to make cookies, yes we get out the cookie cutters, flour flying everywhere

INSTILLED: to introduce by gradual persistent efforts, to pour in drip by drip

I love the definition of this word, gradual persistent efforts, the same is with the word as we read, study & digest it daily it will begin to pour into our soul drip by drip I am proud of my daughter,  & & son—law who are instilling the love of God into their lives, I am Nanna to 8 beautiful grand children & I want them to grow up to instill things into their children & some day their grand children but more importantly that they see Jesus in me

This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24

Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. Psalms 42:5


we all have things that we face in this life, this past week my son-n-law lost a dad, a church member's life hangs in the balance, my sister-n-law who lives in VA also lost a dad, it seems that death is all around us but the word reminds us that as long as we have breath we have reason to praise him for he understands our grief , our pain, our hearts & it is through praise the healing comes

he is my shepherd

I want for nothing

he restores my soul

he leads me in paths of righteousness

he is always with me

he maketh my cup to overflow

goodness & mercy follow me

I will dwell with him
