You must choose to A L L O W,,,,

I must allow good back into my life.

I must allow hope to rule my life.

I must allow joy to fill my days.

I must allow grace to take care of me.

I must allow faith to guide me.

I must allow love to protect me.

I must allow peace to comfort me.

I must allow strength to grow in me.

I must allow positive thoughts to be my only thoughts.

I must allow prayer to work for me.

It's all about your V I E W along the Journey




Simple words say it best.

Common language speaks to all.

Truth is the sincerest prayer.

Honesty is heard.

Meekness is blessed.

Modesty is understood.

Hope is shared.

Peace is a gift.

Life is what we make it.

Our journeys are our own choosing. Even when life throws that proverbial curve, we have the power and freedom to choose the next step. We have the option to decide what we will do, how we will do it and when we will do it. We put off the simple task of living and breathing a happy and peaceful life. We go through most days being caught up in its drama often brought to us by outside sources but many times of our own choosing. We don’t trust God. We don’t allow God. We don’t believe God. He’s there;  fighting for us all the way. We get in HIS WAY when we try to take the reins. His way is always perfect. His will is always in our best interest. His path is always the best path. His direction is always the correct one. All we have to do is lean on Him and let Him hold us up! That’s the simple truth. Listening to THE POWER by Ronda Byrne (author of THE SECRET).  Much of life is what we make it. Our thoughts make up much of what happens to us. LOVE is the ultimate power that rules the universe. In my own words, I believe, GOD is that LOVE, that POWER, that SECRET! He makes the world go round and has for more days than anyone I’ve ever known to be alive. If we can simple let go and let HIM, life will be a much easier one with much less struggle. When will I ever learn this? Maybe never. Maybe today. I hope so at least.

getting by

sorry the posts have been so erratic...i'm fried in every area of life and i can't seem to get unscrambled ...ha ha, but i still got my silly sense of humor....

Day is nearly gone.



Have I dodged trouble or feared for nothing?


Rains came. Earth was cleansed. Was I?


Sun comes out and shines into lives.


Do we realize the light is from God?


Many don’t even see the light.


I must know this is God for if I didn’t I would surely perish.


* * *
 
 …



I escape with art.


I run away in movies.


I hide in words.


I find hope in scripture.


I know peace in nature.


I believe in good and I hope good is in me.


I pray like my life depends on it. (it does and so do the lives of those I love.)


I trust the scriptures with all my heart.

Each day brings its own challenge even when things are going smoothly and breathing is difficult.


Days with problems are more challenging but they have their perfect breaths.

Stressful times take our breath away but they also strengthen our lungs for deep breathing.

I will not allow my weak moments to cause me to hold my breath.

I will stay strong and faithful to the end. I will breathe deeply and long.

I will find my perfect breaths till the last one.

I will share my breath with those who are breathless.

I will B R E A T H E.

tired

tired of being the accomodater
tired of being the keeper of details
tired of being the one who knows what to worry about
tired of being the one who understands
tired of being the fixer of everything
tired of being the one who listens
tired of being the one ignored and unheard
tired of being the one to explain again and again
tired of being the getter
tired of being the go-fer
tired of being

finding joy is often an effort

If we let our dreams die, a part of us dies too.

If we give up wishing, we give up our hopes.

If we stop planning, we stop living.

If we lose our creativity, we lose our imagination!





I've been on an emotional roller coaster and
it's a scary ride!
Without my art and writing, I would surely have not made it this long!

hemispheric conditions

Tired and weary I will fight for them as long as I humanly can. They just don’t know how much of me is dying with all this.

Lost in my life I don’t know if I’ll ever be found.

Hurt in my soul I don’t know if I’ll ever be healed.

Forgotten in my day to day existence I don’t know if I’ll ever be remembered.

Broken in my spirit I don’t know if I’ll ever be mended.

Damaged in my mind I don’t know if I’ll ever be restored.

I am weak but I am strong.



I am broken but I am whole.


I am lost but I am found.


I am doubtful but I am sure.


I am down but I am up.


I am fake but I am real.

God’s presence is my wealth.

God’s love is my inheritance.

God’s peace is my prosperity.

God’s hope is my asset.

God’s joy is my riches.

God’s mercy is my treasure.

God’s grace is my legacy.

God’s goodness is my fortune.

God’s healing is my profit.

He is all anyone needs.

He is source, doctor, friend, helper, guide and sage.

The sun shines straight into my heart.

The moon rises from my soul.

The sky is as wide as my spirit.

The earth is as deep as my mind.

Life is in my every cell.

It is a waste to not allow each to L I V E.

and stay out of the

P I T S of L I F E...

Sunday Morning Devotions



Lord, in your mercy, I know YOU are everything to EVERY need on this day. Please send us all peace, comfort and healing.
Forgive my impatience, anger and attitude. Thank YOU for ALL that is GOOD in my life. Please send your embrace to all!


In your beloved Son, Jesus Christ’s name, AMEN


“he gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on eagle’s wings; they will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:29-31


THE CROSS is the only navigational tool we need. (Upper Room)


“God, walk with us. Help us be good. Amen.” Pam Kidd’s dad

“God is a breath away. He wants to hear what you have to say. He hopes that you will choose to come as you are. And to God our Father, nobody says it better than you!” Pam Kidd
