In a Whisper of Faith

In a whisper of faith, God calms the raging storms.

In a whisper of faith, God diffuses the troubles of life;

In a whisper of faith, God instills peace amidst the strife.

In a whisper…

In a whisper of faith, God shields me from the searing heat.

In a whisper of faith, God is in the wind sifting through the trees;

In a whisper of faith, God surrounds me in a cool, gentle breeze.

In a whisper…

In a whisper of faith, God protects me from the frigid, wintry cold.

In a whisper of faith, God wipes away my tears in the deep, dark night;

In a whisper of faith, God watches over me until the dawn of morning light.

In a whisper…

Friday Verse Journal: Psalms 46:10a

Becky’s Haiku: Be Still

Be still and know I

Am Lord; rest in a quiet

Place inside my grace.

Psalms 46:10a (Holy Bible New International Version):

“Be still and know that I am God.”

When LOVE RAINS

IMG_20160420_100034375

Lingering raindrops in the grayish sky

Overcast with a sheet of clouds drifting by.

Venturing out on a dark and dreary day

Ever wishing for the clouds to dissipate.

Remembering just then that God has a plan

As Jesus, his only Son, he did send.

Inflicted and laden with all my wickedness;

Not hesitating, he suffered and died for my sinfulness.

So like the rain covering the grass, he came to hold me steadfast.

Therefore as the droplets fall and cling to the land,

He quietly descends and  takes my hand.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentines

THANKFUL HEART

Thinking continually of God and his grace;

Holding on to him in a warm embrace.

Attitude and heart set on joy and gladness

Never forgetting from whom we are blessed.

Kindness and love to share

For neighbors, friends, and family everywhere.

Unswerving in faith and hope in the Lord;

Letting him guide in life, prayer, and in his Word.

Helping other and never stop caring;

Eternal life with him always sharing.

Adoration and praise never ending;

Remembering always Jesus is my friend.

Trusting and believing forever in him, Amen!

Becky’s Song: Being Thankful in January

 

IMG_20151226_125714282_HDR

(Tune: Deck the Halls):

January is too cold fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

And I can tell I’m getting old fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Oh this weather and the temperatures, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

I cannot so easily endeavor, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

 

Tis the season to hibernate, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Stay inside until Spring’s first day, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Oh but then I might miss some fun, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

And not see the bright rainbow sun, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

 

Also no sledding or skiing, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Nor walking beneath snow glistened trees, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Nor making angels in the snow, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

All because outside I won’t go, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

 

So, I guess I’ll venture outside, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Now that the bright sun did arise, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

And continue on life’s journey, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

And try to see this new day’s blessings, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

 

It is still the time to be thankful, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Knowing that God is faithful, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

He has promised to never leave me, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

And lovingly he’s always providing, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

 

So now as I step into the cold, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Following a snow swept road, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

I will remember that Jesus is with me, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Sheltering me in his love and peace, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Happy THANKSGIVING To All

IMG_20151022_122058541

Together once again with family and many friends.

House is aflutter with enticing aromas, clanging pans, and laughter.

Abundant home baked delights camouflage the table from sight.

Nature adds the wintry cold and a pristine layer of fresh snow.

Kittens, dogs, and children happily scamper through the hectic kitchen.

Sounds of boos and cheers from a televised game fill the atmosphere.

Grandparents, aunts, and uncles attend with young and smiling cousins.

Intrigued and famished family members finally around the table gather.

Vibrant and lively celebration of peace, joy, and prayerful thanksgiving.

Invited and included too are the dear friends loved by you.

Never neglecting or forgetting God’s numerous blessings.

Gathered and united in love while watched by the Lord from above.
