It seems I wrestle with this scripture more than any other.
Last July when I turned 50, I made a promise to myself. That I would try new things. Things that I thought were out of my reach. I love crafty, artsy people, yet I was not one of them. I was always sad about that.
I will be honest, I am terribly practical. I would often push off ideas, if I didn’t feel that they would serve a practical purpose.
This year was an impractical year for me. A year of flowers, of gardening, of poems, of macramé, and recently painting.
Here is what I found when I was engrossed in these things—a peace, a contentment, a quietness and most importantly I felt the Lord near. Creating brought joy for this busy mind.
Maybe you are like me, terribly practical, longing for something more, hoping to be a maker of something. I pray you will allow yourself this little treat, and as you make and create, you will feel the Lord near.
I have always loved to study with women of scripture. Especially the women who met Jesus face to face. Who encountered Him in a ways I have not.
This is how I imagine the woman at the well after her encounter with Jesus. Full of life, filled with hope, overflowing with the color of Living Water.
I thought Mother’s Day weekend would be a a great time to celebrate women and give away some free poetry!
You can pick up, Of Salt and Light, A Celebration of Women, FREE in EBook form on Amazon starting tomorrow May 9, 2021 through Tuesday, May 11th, 2021.
The picture of perfection. 💛
I’m a law breaker, we all are. We may clean ourselves up on the outside, but when we take a good look within, we see the filth that we’ve hidden away.
Jesus washes us by His grace. Gives us a new start with new choices. The question is, what will we say? 🕊️
He is always our source, Jesus. 🔥
If you’ve ever suffered physically or emotionally you understand the glory of sweet relief. 💚
