My Place in the Lord!

For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble.

Psalm 32:7a, NLT   

…my thoughts…

For You are my RESTING place; You protect me from BEING WEARY.

For You are my JOYFUL place; You protect me from BEING SAD.

For You are my PEACEFUL place; You protect me from BEING WORRIED.

For You are my ABUNDANT place; You protect me from BEING NEEDFUL.

For You are my HEALING place; You protect me from BEING ILL.

For You are my COMFORTING place; You protect me from BEING BEREAVED.

Be Still…

Psalms 46:10a, NRSV
“Be still, and know that I am God!…

Just be still and wait on Me. 

Be still and wait for Me. 

Be still and wait because of Me. 

Be still and wait in Me.

Just be still and wait…

All of Me!


Deuteronomy 6:5, NLV

And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

Loving God should consume ALL of me!

Heart=God the Father

Soul= God the Son

Strength=God the Holy Spirit

I must love Him with ALL of me.

Not haphazardly.

Not intermittently.

Not inconsistently. 

Not irresponsibly. 

Not irreverently. 

But with ALL of me.

I Am So Glad!

Isaiah 58:9a NLV Then you will call, and the Lord will answer. You will cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am…’

I am so glad that my cries do not fall on uncaring ears.

I am so glad that when I call, God hears.

I am so glad that when I cry, He responds. 

I am so glad that when I cry to the Lord, He is filled with compassion towards my situation.

I am so glad!

Here We Go Again!



We booked our fight and accommodations for Portimão, Portugal! We leave in about 20 days and we will be gone almost a month. And believe you me, this is coming no time too soon. I am in desperate need of some SERIOUS R&R!

I am excited and a little apprehensive. I know enough Spanish to fill a thimble. And nothing of Portuguese. Hubby can speak conversational Spanish, he’s trying to learn basic Portuguese words, maybe I’d better learn some along with him.

We are renting a two bedroom apartment and my daughter in Georgia is trying to see if she can get time off work to meet us there for a week or so.

We have a couple excursions in mind, but we are going to keep things pretty loose so we can be spontaneous travelers. But, if any of my fellow bloggers can give me tips for making my first transatlantic trip to Portugal more memorable, please let me know!

Follow my travels on my other blog My bucket list travels.

Needless to say, I AM SO EXCITED!!!

What a blessing! Thank You, Lord!

I Am Beautiful!

Ecclesiastes 3:11a, NLT Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time…

Even when I don’t think that I am beautiful or worthy, I must remember that God made EVERYTHING beautiful. This is not for me to become conceited or prideful. But for me to know that I have worth and value.

Head up!

Stand tall!

Shoulders back!

Mind uplifted!

Help Me!

I’m sure that what I am going through, even though it is vexing me. Making me tired. Making me weepy. Making withdraw from others. Someone else with different crisis, would look at me and say, “Let’s trade places.”

I know that I should suck it up. Be a man. Or in my case, put on my big girl panties and tough it out. And eventually I will. I’ve been in this funky mood longer than I want to be. But I feel like I need a good cry or yell or something to release what’s inside of me.

I feel like I’m entitled to feel this way. What I am going through, I didn’t bring on myself. I kinda knew what I was getting into how my life was going to be different…but every now and then…I have one of those days. And I want my life back.

Then I don’t want to complain. Especially not to my husband who is already like a rock in a hard place…so I wait. I suffer in silence..I pull away.

I really don’t want to happen, what sometimes swells up inside me, AN EMOTIONAL EXPLOSION!! But I feel like I am on the edge, tottering back and forth and the whisper of a wind can push me over. Down, falling out of control. Falling to an ugly place where, even I don’t want to be.

Help me Lord!

Help me to see Your Face and Seek Your Face.

Help me give this burden to You so I can breathe again. Its weight is crushing me down to the ground.

I wait on and for You Lord.

Help me.

Use Me, Lord

Proverbs 3:27, (MSG)
“Never walk away from someone who deserves help; your hand is God’s hand for that person.”

I am the only Bible that some will read.

I am the only sermon that some will hear.

I am the only light that some will see.

Use me, Lord…

And for is…I am Thankful!

Psalms 146:7b, NIV “…The Lord sets prisoners free”

Even when I have put myself in prison.

When I am judge, jury and executor.

I am the jailer, with the lock, key and chains.

I have confined myself!


Thank God, that the Lord has released me!

He has pardon me!

He has set me free!

He has forgiven me.

And for this…I am thankful!
