The Unknown

Colossus

 

Psalm 23:4
New Living Translation (NLT)

4 Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me.


Colossus

There before he stands again,
Arms bared and confronting me,
His wild voice mocking
And saying how things will be,

This is not the first time
Nor will it likely be the last,
He is my ever present foe,
The die that has been cast,

We meet at every corner,
Every place I try to go,
He waits to send me scurrying,
He’s done it since long ago,

Whether in the daylight hours
Or as night’s darkness presses in,
I cannot seem to lose him
And there seems no way to win,

So I am left to pull away,
To run and try to hide,
You see this giant is nothing more
Than the fear that lives inside.

Father,

Please send Your Spirit to guide us each day. Strengthen our faith so we can walk without fear. So we may walk in Your precious peace. Thank you!

Always and Forever

BFF

 

Proverbs 18:24
New Living Translation (NLT)

24 There are “friends” who destroy each other,
but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.


BFF

How sweet it would be to fight no more
To lay this burden down,
It matters not who’s right or wrong
But can peace somehow be found?

Is there a way set aside
Our griefs, our hurts, our pains?
To simply agree to disagree
And act like friends again,

What would it take to realize?
The treasure that we’ve lost,
When friends are no longer friendly,
How can you count the cost?

What price set you on friendship?
What value does it hold?
When did it lose its meaning,
Has it always been this cold?

So here we are with only questions
And those begat a thousand more,
Perhaps the only path to peace
Lay on a separate shore,

So walk away and don’t look back
And do not shed a tear,
Remember me as I will you
As someone I once held dear.

Father,

You are a friend like no other. Not once have You ever failed us. Not once have You left us. Not once have You not loved us. We thank You and praise You for who You are…our Friend!

Rest Assured

Vote!


Job 12:7-10
New Living Translation (NLT)

7 “Just ask the animals, and they will teach you.
Ask the birds of the sky, and they will tell you.
8 Speak to the earth, and it will instruct you.
Let the fish in the sea speak to you.
9 For they all know
that my disaster has come from the hand of the Lord.
10 For the life of every living thing is in his hand,
and the breath of every human being.


Today is voting day in the USA. Take advantage of this great opportunity and yet remember that it holds great responsibility. Be bold, be brave, be wise. But remember there is reason for great hope. There are hands that have made us and that hold the universe in place.

If you’re feeling down or confused; take a few minutes and watch the video below of Planet Earth. It helps me to marvel at this miraculous place we live, then go and vote your heart. It will be alright for we are not alone and we are protected and greatly loved.

Have a blessed day!

Maranatha!

 

 

 

The Laminator

The saga continues as I forge ahead with our flooring adventure. Will I be the hero or the villian? Will all be well or will I be shot down in flames? Hopefully I will be back soon with the usual postings. Until then, take care, and say a prayer.

Laminate Blues

Laminate, Oh Laminate!
When will you end?
Pulling out carpet
Until my knees won’t bend,

I got the laminate blues
I got them thru and thru
From my head to my shoes
I got those laminate blues!
I got those laminating blues!

Then there’s the underlayment
After everything’s clean,
Brushing and a’ scrubbing
Until not a speck can be seen

I got the laminate blues
I got them thru and thru
From my head to my shoes
I got those laminate blues!
I got those laminating blues!

Then you finally get
To lay that new floor down
But not until you’ve gone thru
Every single box that’s lying around

That’s why I’ve got the laminate blues
And there’s nothing that I can do
At least until this job is through
I got those laminate blues!
I got those pulling my back,
Bending my knees,
Wishing I was on a beach,
Laminating blueeeees!

Father,

Please guide our every step. May we measure twice and cut once. May we always follow after Your plan.  Thank You!

Gone…but not far

My apologies for being gone so much lately. I have been doing some long thought about home improvements. I tore out the old carpet in the master bedroom and replaced it with wood laminate. It was quite an adventure. My thanks go out to a friend who was nice enough to let me borrow a miter saw and a nail gun for the molding. I also must as always give a shout out to “Professor YouTube”. You can learn how to do almost anything from him. Only two more bedrooms and a walk-in closet to go. I shall return! Filled with even more gratitude…that I didn’t kill myself or destroy our home.

God bless everyone!
