Garden Thoughts

The flowers you see below are from my day-lily garden.  God has overdone Himself this year…with plenty of rain and sunshine.  Enjoy the beauty and the poetry.  Blessings to you!      Marie

Walking With Him

This morning this was in my Facebook feed and gave me cause to think…Do I ask God to guide me then do nothing?  Way to often.  How shall I change that?

In Prayer – – Father You alone are the true Guide of my life.  Give me the supernatural ability to follow through with what You want of me. 

In Song – – “I have decided to follow Jesus: No turning back.”  “All to Jesus I Surrender, all to Him I Freely Give” “I’ll Tell the World That I’m a Christian”  “Set My Soul Afire, Lord”

In the Word – – The Great Commission – Matthew 28:16-20,  Being fishers of men – Luke 5:1-11,  Proclaiming the Word – Romans 1:15-17

Heavenly Father, King of All Creation, Master of my life,  I am willing to move my feet just help me know where to move to. Amen and make it so.

Alphabet Soup

I was reading through a few of my favorite blogs (listed at the left) and discovered that some have received an award called the ABC Award.  I found this a quite revealing way to write about what my Lord and Savior means to me using some of my favorite hymns. 

Almighty, Most Holy God

Because He Lives

Christ the Lord is Risen Today

Day By Day


Fairest Lord Jesus

Great Is ThyFaithfulness

Holy, Holy, Holy

I’d Rather Have Jesus

Jesus Lover of My Soul

King of My Life

Love Lifted Me

More About Jesus

Now I Belong To Jesus

Only Trust Him

People Need the Lord


Redeemed How I Love To Proclaim It

Shine, Jesus, Shine

There Is Sunshine In My Soul

Up From The Grave He Arose

Victory In Jesus

Whiter Than Snow


Years I Spent In Vanity and Pride


There are a few blanks because I simply could not think of a hymn that begins with that letter. 

I highly recommend trying this yourselves.  Just create an alphabetical list of what the Lord means to you.  It will surely cause your heart to stir with joy at what He is. 

Is anyone happy?  Let him sing songs of praise.  James 5:13b

Ah, Lord God, You are the song of my heart.  You have so blessed my world with Your beautiful music.  All praise to You my God and King!
