Today is a Promise

Today is a promise to tomorrow
A dream
A commitment
An adventure to follow

With God as the compass
And love as the guide
You’ll climb every mountain
And cross rivers wide

No journey is easy
But no words can explain
The joy & the beauty
That sings in the rain

Sunshine will brighten
Hearts held by grace
And hope gives strength
Day by day

It’s a heritage you’re forming
A home established forever
Built by the One
Who brought you
Together

–For Silas & Abigail LaGoy.  Yahweh bless you more than you can dream!

Stop.

Sunrise
Sunset
Restless sleep
Get up
Check your phone
Short prayer
Busy day
A quick hug
Distracted listening
Lack of vision
Days blur together
What is tomorrow?
It is today
Where are we going?

Stop.

Run to a quiet place
Sit
Rest
Let Him come
In His time
Changing your heart
Thunder rolls
Music plays
Your heart sings along
Dancing in the rain
Joy through the pain
Faith, hope, and love remain

Feel the Rain

Dark or light
What is your choice?
Truth or lies
What holds you tonight?
You can open your heart
And allow it to change
Let go of the fear & feel the rain
Falling down from the Father above
He is near
Nearer than your broken heart
Closer than the doubts swirling inside
He’s holding you together
When you cannot feel
Hearing your soul’s cry
When you cannot speak

Catching every tear that falls silently
It’s here
In the storm
That He brings you peace
Rest in the middle of a restless sea

Photo Challenge (Day 1)

Thank you to Miss Squid once again for another fun blog nomination! This one is the “Photo Challenge,” and there will be five days with a new theme each day. The rules are…

1) the photo must be taken the day of the post
2) it must be an original photo

I’ve kept this blog strictly text-oriented, but I told Miss Squid that I would “break the rules” this time. 🙂 After all, it’s good to have a change. I don’t have a fancy camera–just my family’s point-and-shoot–but I love the artistic side of photography.

Today’s word is “intricate” 

There just happened to be a rain storm this afternoon, leaving the grass glittering with droplets of this much needed gift from above (we’ve had a drought here in Alabama). And that is where I discovered this lovely white clover. Yahweh designed even the weeds to be intricate and beautiful. His Creation amazes me.

“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.”
Isaiah 40:8

{P.s. This song was playing as I was writing this post–pretty fitting.}
