 Mark 7:28 she answered and said unto him yes Lord 

no matter what comes my way & a lot has been coming this past weekend, I still rejoice for this is the day that the Lord has made(Ps.118:24)

as my husband is preparing to have to go out of town for the week, our water line decides to burst & there’s no help in sight till Wed. so I learn where the little knob is to turn on/off the water which is not fun, it’s deep into the ground & out on the main road for all the world to see lol,if that’s not enough he turns from that project to go gas up my vehicle hummm batteries dead , soo with the battery charging a book I recently bought comes to mind


no matter what the enemy throws at me there’s no denying I’m still blessed, we began to talk about how this is nothing compared to the tornado we just came through & that by the grace of God we’re still here,life will always throw things our way & not every day will be perfect but God is the same yesterday today & forever, as long as I have breath I will praise him, he will send the right people to fix the water that will give us the best price *for the Lord shall be thy confidence and shall keep thy foot from being taken (PROV:3:26)I refuse to be defeated this coming week, I still have breath to praise him, I am still able to go into my secret place where he calls me friend , I still can rejoice in his goodness, I can still feed my soul through his word, yes because I still say YES LORD it will be a great week!some of my favorite chapters in Psalms are:

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God picks you from the patch and washes all the dirt off of you. He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed. He carves you a new smiling face and puts HIS light inside of you to shine for all the world to see. This was passed to me by another pumpkin. Now it's your turn to pass on to another pumpkin

I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America;
and to the republic, for which it stands;
one nation, under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

A blogger friend mention how she though to research 9:11 scriptures

what a great post! I love to research scriptures & meanings of words etc as well so I went through the chapters & in the very beginning God makes a covenant with man sealed  with a promise with a sign of the rainbow, every time we see a rainbow  after  a rain we are reminded of God's promise Gen.9:11

throughout the word we read how it is important to be ready for the Lords coming as we see in  ECC.9:11-12

I returned and saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong neither yet bread to the wise nor yet  riches to men of understanding nor yet favor to men of skill but time and chance happeneth to them all

America still stands strong

have you ever awaken to the sound of rain?It was raining ever so softly early this morning around 4:30 am, since I was up I decided ok why not so I make coffee, & research poems on rain , you know me & my poems! LOL, when you have time you should type in Judy Jacobs “WE Agree”on you tube, she sings a powerful song on Believing God for a latter rain, the Bible speaks of a latter rain coming of an outpouring of God’s power, a time of refreshing & renewing of the spirit

Soft Rain

A soft rain falls outside my window,its sounds play in consonance with
the steady rhythm of my heart.
I watch mesmerized as each liquid bead
bounces off budding greenery, flower petals, and
blades of freshly mown grass.
With a splatter, each burst forth into tiny crystal rivulets,
randomly rushing headlong on their cursory course
to a pre-arranged destiny of final absorption.
Light rain. Spring rain. Latter rain.
It fills my soul. My cup overflows.
As quickly as it had begun,
this afternoon shower is almost done.
Comforting – soothing – relaxing – this spring rain is.
It washes the earth and cleanses the heart,
leaving my inner being composed and serene.
Ever so gently, it lulls me into a welcoming nap.
I wake refreshed.
From my window, as I soak in the beauty of a freshly bathed earth,
I see sunlight sparkling through silken threads of dwindling raindrops.
Renewed and invigorated, I stretch relaxed muscles and
breathe in ionic-charged air.
For the moment, peace prevails
deep within the recesses of my soul.
With it, a tranquility is sustained,
like the vibrancy of green after the rain.
