THANKFUL HEART

021

Tender words of God soothing my soul;

Harmonious and sweet hymns soon follow.

Awake and stirring inside of me

Never ending source of lasting peace.

Kindest showers of blessings from Jesus;

Flowing and bubbling through the Holy Spirit.

Under the Lord’s loving and ever watchful eye

Lingering in the stillness with a contented sigh.

Hearing and cherishing the sweet words of him;

Ever mindful of God’s all-knowing wisdom.

After a long and struggling day,

Remembering Jesus is still leading the way.

Trusting and believing fully in him,

My heart is happy and thankful within.

Friday Verse Journal Luke 10:27

I know I am writing this a few days late but I still felt a desire to do so. Here is another image compliment of the Stellarium App on my kindle fire. These are two nebulas near each other and are known as the heart and soul nebula. It is amazing how much beauty God has created in our world and in the universe. He is so infinite that there is no end to his wisdom, his creativity, his beauty, and his love. God loves each of us so much that he sent his only son Jesus to die for us on the cross to take away our sins. He wants us, in return to believe in him through his son and to love him with all our beings. And only God’s faithfulness and love lasts forever.  Like the amazing beauty, I sometimes find around me, I am awestruck by God’s amazing and wondrous love. And all’s he wants from me is to love him back wholeheartedly.

Luke 10:27 (Holy Bible New International Version):

…”Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself.”

My cousin, Kathy B had spent a special Christmas with her family and she just treasures very special and pleasant moments she has with those she loves the most. She is very thought and reflective of such special times and has offered to share her special thoughts on this. I hope the special message that she shares here will be a wonderful and gentle encouragement to those who read this. Now, here is Kathy B in her own words:

Christmas Past, Present & Yet to Be

Christmas past and Christmas present,

I can’t help but think of those who came and left before me,

Grandpa, Dad and Mom, all those I love that went to Heaven,

the list is much too long,

That is what makes all that I carry in heart

– all the memories – just a tiny bit bittersweet you see,

they come flooding back to my mind

much like a cherished melody of youth’s sweet song.

But, as I begin my 50th decade, God and life has brought bit more wisdom to me,

I should not dwell too much on their absence,

for I won’t notice the blessings yet to be,

 I sometimes long for years gone by, the day in the little church where I became we,

the sweet joy I felt in my heart with my little one in my arms, young and carefree.

However, I too enjoy the present,

it brings its own precious gifts of memories yet to be.

Living with HOPEFULNESS

456

Heavenward and unfaltering gaze

Of optimism and unceasing praise

Persevering in God’s work of love

Empowered by His Spirit which has descended like a dove

Filled with gladness all the day long

Uttering thankfulness in word and song

Listening to the Lord with open mind and heart

Never forgetting his word; not letting his wisdom depart

Ever mindful of Jesus’ death and resurrection and our eternal future

Saved forever from our humanly faulty and sinful nature

Savior Jesus will come soon and lead us to his everlasting home.
