I Choose to Rejoice Always

I’m still learning to trust God,
 whether skies are stormy or clear,

During times of loss or gain,
in laughter or in tears….
Knowing the One who shelters me under the
shadow of His wings keeps me there.
My soul is safe and secure,
blessed beyond measure, 
with a peace that passes all understanding….

All because God’s anointed Servant
willingly laid down His life
that I might truly live in this life
and for all eternity.

Rejoice in the Lord always; Again I say rejoice! Philippians 4:4
He poured out His life unto death, and was numbered
with the transgressors. For He bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.
 Isaiah 53:sv. 12

It Took a Savior

Love formed and shaped the
mountain backdrop.
Blended shades of pink,
blue and purple.
Brushed contrast of light
and shadows,
and carved out mountains and valleys.

I believe all creation announced
the beauty of God’s
Holy love
the moment
He spoke it into being….
Yet it took a Savior to brush
strokes of love upon our needy hearts.


In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth,
and the Spirit of God was hovering over its surface.
Genesis 1:1,2 sv. NLT

For God so loved the world, He gave His only son, so that everyone who
believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16 NLT

Just Beyond The Veil

Be encouraged dear pilgrim.
Our loved ones are
just beyond the veil,

surrounded by the cloud
of witnesses

who have gone before us.
They’re singing
the Song of our Redeemer,
and they’re waiting to welcome us home. 

And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying,
‘Come up here’. Then they went up to heaven
in a cloud and their enemies watched them. Rev. 11:12

Praying Through The Storm

We’re passing through the storm,
Beloved of God.
Jesus is on board our battered ship,
speaking peace to stormy winds
and troubled hearts.

We’re pressing through the storm,
Child of God.
Jesus, our captain and navigator
controls the winds of change,
and has a sure destination in mind.

We’re praying through the storm,
Beloved of Christ.
He sees and knows when teardrops fall;
and He’s taking us to
the other side of the storm.


He calmed the storm to a whisper and
stilled the waves. What a blessing was that stillness, as He
brought them safely into harbor. Psalm 107:29,30 NLT

My Mother’s Heart


Time alone revealed the true heart
of my mother. 

Seasons of her life reflected
the love and care she
gave our family. 
Myriads of memories
ever so
 sweet 
etched on my heart and mind. 
Easter dresses, hand made
for five daughters,
while she sacrificially
and
 unashamedly went without.
Sunday dinners,
joyfully prepared and served
with beautiful heart and hands;
all for the unabashed
love of family. 
Letters and notes
of encouragement
to a son or daughter
far from home.
Times spent in prayer down
on her knees,

knowing something
wasn’t quite right
and so she prayed. 
Daring to believe for a miracle
when doctors said,
“No chance this baby can live”.
A textbook miracle
son
 who lived forty-five years.
Caring for Daddy through
 years of illness,
faithfully by his side with hope and prayers.

A heart broken many times by unbelievable losses
grandsons, husband, son, parents, brothers and sisters…
Yet Mother lived with confident hope
she would see them again.
Mother touched many hearts over the years
giving hope, encouragement, prayers.
A testament of love and faith
for all who knew her.

Thank you God for my mother’s legacy of a life well lived.
