White as Snow

White as Snow

Happy Easter!  Here in central Illinois, we had snow on Easter.  It started about 2 and kept on snowing into the night.  That evening, my husband were sitting on the porch watching the snow glittering in the light as it fell.  There was a peaceful feel all around as the snow blanketed the landscape with pure glistening white.  We marveled at the birds singing as if it were a bright spring  morning, instead of a snow storm.  Later, I read Isaiah 1:18-"Come now, let us settle the matter," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be...

He will make your paths straight

As I sit here writhing about this last part of the verse we have been looking at, I don't know what to say.  Holy Spirit, guide me as I write this today.  Let these words bring delight to my readers path.  Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:5-6  The promise here is he will make our paths straight.  Path is our way, the course and fortunes of life.  Straight means to make smooth, straight, free from obstacles,...

Spring Bucket List;  Adventure with the Lord

Do you have a Spring Bucket List?  One of the blogs I read recently was on making a Spring Bucket list and it reminds me I haven't done a spring list yet.

Adventure is: Lean not to your own understanding

  God planned for our lives to be full of adventure. In order for us to live that adventurous life, we have to believe He can see where we are going and that He knows the best way to get us there.  We don't have to know it all or depend on just ourselves. Today I explore some reasons why we should not lean to our own understanding.  We will never be tall enough to navigate ourselves to our destination Think of walking  with a child through a crowd of people going to the ice cream shop.  All the child can see is...

Trust is jumping into His arms

Trust is jumping into His arms

  Trusting in the Lord with all our heart is vital to living a life that delights Him and one that is delightful for us to live.  Did you ever jump off something into the arms of an adult, trusting they would catch you? Or had a child jump to you, trusting you would catch them?   It seems that once they know you will catch them, it becomes a fun game for them.   I can remember my littles ones jumping off the bed into my arms for a hug.  I also remember not knowing they were going to jump and...
