Sunday Stillness – What are you wearing?

Sunday Stillness – What are you wearing?

This week, the phrase “clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ” keeps going through my mind.

What-are-you-wearing--Romans-13-14

Romans 13:14 says:

Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.

How can we clothe ourselves in Jesus? I have 4 thoughts.

  1. Read your Bible every day.
  2. Pray often.
  3. Join with others to learn more about following Jesus.
  4. Be grateful all the time.

Also watch out for those deceivers.

One of my favourite songs is Put on a Garment of Praise, sung by Robin Mark.

Put on the garments of praise, for the spirit of heaviness;
Let the oil of gladness flow down from your throne!
Put on the garments of praise, for the spirit of heaviness;
Your joy is my strength alone, my strength alone!

Make these broken weary bones rise to dance again,
Wet this dry and thirsty land with a river!
Lord our eyes are fixed on you and we are waiting,
For your garland of grace as we praise your name!

(chorus)

Hallelujah, sing hallelujah!
We give all honor and praise to your name!
Hallelujah, sing hallelujah!
We trade our sorrows for garments of praise!

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

Sunday Stillness – Looking Ahead with a Survey

Sunday Stillness – Looking Ahead with a Survey

Saying-Goodbye-to-Arizona

I hope to continue my study of Titus soon using my SIMPLE Method of Bible Study.

We have made the transition quite well back from Arizona to Haliburton. [I do have to clarify because I seem to be confusing my readers – we are Canadians who live in Haliburton and winter in Arizona.]

My focus in the past week has been to source natural food products. Since we are basically eating a Paleo diet, that means finding good sources for free range chicken (and their eggs), grass fed beef and pork. Of course we are always looking for organic everything.

My garden plans are coming along thanks to a wise friend. We live in deer, skunk, gopher, and rabbit country. I hope to post pictures of my progress. We had a garden many years ago but that was in my fenced backyard in the city. This is entirely different in the country.

Welcome-back-to-Haliburton

In the meantime I want to write blog posts to inform, enrich and excite your lives. For this reason I have made used Survey Monkey to make a questionnaire with a very easy click answer form.

Would you please take a moment to help me best serve you with posts that you will enjoy?

Please wait for a few seconds for the survey to upload. Thanks.

Creative Tuesday – Happiness – How a human cared for a baby duck and that duck became a great mother

Creative Tuesday – Happiness – How a human cared for a baby duck and that duck became a great mother

Our prompt today was, “What makes me happy?” from Creative Tuesdays.

Check out the other artist’s pictures.

Happiness

I haven’t made a title that long before. Whew. But this story is amazing.

Last year, my friend found that a baby duck had been kicked out of the nest by mother duck. After numerous unsuccessful attempts to reunite the duckling with the mother my friend decided to look after it until it became strong enough to survive on its own. One of the reuniting attempts landed my friend into the waters of our lake (recycled water). Her heart and soul were with this little duckling.

She named her Libby. And when Libby grew strong enough she flew over the patio wall and joined the throng of other ducks. She found a friend and flew north for the summer. This winter my friend was thrilled to find Libby at her gate introducing her mate. Then she disappeared for 2 weeks.

A few days ago Libby appeared again but this time with her family of 15 little ducklings. Isn’t that amazing! My friend cared for this duckling who in turn became a mama. And a good one at that. She occasionally comes to my friend’s gate.

I took some pictures while walking around our lake and decided that “little lives” make me happy. Just watching these precious ones jump up the wall of the lake, follow mother duck around and grow each day.

To me happiness is life – watching it, living it and enjoying it.

My grandchildren give me the same happiness – seeing them grow, listening to their stories, enjoying their love. We have been blessed with seven grandchildren. My happiness is overflowing.

Sunday Stillness – Who was Irena Sendler?

Sunday Stillness – Who was Irena Sendler?

Irena_Sendlerowa_1942

From Wikipedia

 

While talking Beth Moore’s study called Children of the Day, Beth mentioned Irena Sendler. Curious, I looked her up and decided we would watch the movie about her.

Excellent movie and quite a story.

Irena was a Polish nurse during WWII who worked with the Polish Underground.

Assisted by some two dozen other Żegota members, Sendler smuggled approximately 2,500 Jewish children out of the Warsaw Ghetto and then provided them with false identity documents and shelter outside the Ghetto, saving those children from the Holocaust.[4]

Born in 1910, she died in 2008 at the age of 98.

Here is the link to the movie.

Sunday Stillness – Happy Easter – Let the Light of Jesus Shine

Sunday Stillness – Happy Easter – Let the Light of Jesus Shine

This is the best of times – the resurrection of our Lord. What a glorious day!

My-God-turns-my-darkness

I read Psalm 18:28 the other day and had to paint a picture.

O, LORD, keep my lamp burning

my God turns my darkness into light (Psalm 18:28, NIV).

Because of Jesus I am no longer in the dark. He has brought me into the light. Thank You, Jesus.

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6, NIV)

Here is a wonderful song from Hillsong. Light Will Shine in the Darkness
