Thoughts Post-surgery

My Friday and Sunday posts were pre-scheduled. Today, I’m home post-surgery. Thanks to God, everything went smoothly. I also thank my surgeons, Dr. Song and Dr. Kanka, my anesthesiologist, and the nurses who assisted and comforted me during the process: Tambra and Ruby, Edith and Lolly. Now that I’m home and thinking back on everything, […]

God Lifts Us

My heart and mind are now at peace through Jesus’ everlasting grace, forgiveness, mercy ever long; God lifts us with His love lifelong.   My guilt and shame He did release by taking in His hands my face and singing me His grace-filled song; God lifts us with His love lifelong.   God’s love for […]

One Step at a Time

  Dear Father, Thank You simply for being here when I need You and holding me with Your strong and comforting arms, even when I don’t seem to realize You are there. Thank You for sending Jesus to shower me with Your scandalous compassion, Your lavish grace and Your unconditional love. Thank You for breaking […]

In Deep Time

This new and deeper passion is what people mean when they say, “I must do this particular thing or my life will not make sense,” or “It is no longer a choice.” Your life and your delivery system are now one, whereas before your life and your occupation seemed like two different things. Your concern […]

Comfort

Somehow comfort seems so inadequate when offered in human terms. As I wrote in my prayer journal Thursday morning and lifted friends in prayer, the number of people hurting from grief began to overwhelm me. One mourns the death of her son six years ago from depression and suicide; one mourns the death several months […]

The Turtle

The struggle to remain in your embrace When burdened with life’s worries, grief and fear Becomes a hindrance all too commonplace Thought first it was horrific and severe. Oppressed beneath the weight of my disgrace Ashamed, to you I no more could adhere Allowing load and mass to sway my gait I let affliction incapacitate. […]

The Wind’s Chorus

Breeze does gently whisper solace Comfort, kindness, voiceless peerless Soothing worry, cooling temper; Spirit bring to mind my Savior   Wafting, rustling in wind’s chorus Deep inside is strength filled fortress Questions are returned answer Spirit bring to mind my Savior   Hurricane in caring fierceness Yanks away temptation’s judas In my anxious cumbrous labor […]

Short Hiatus

Lovely Friends, I apologize for being remiss in visiting your blogs these last two weeks. I have been packing for a long-awaited move into affordable senior housing. The list has been long, but my name finally came up, and the Lord has graciously moved the process along quickly. I am moving this weekend! Unfortunately, I […]

Blessed Are Those Who Mourn

They Will Be Comforted Matthew 5:4 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me. The Lord has chosen me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort those whose hearts are broken, to tell the captives they are free and prisoners they are released.” Isaiah 61: As Jesus taught […]

Fruit of the Spirit: Faithfulness

For we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7) Gordian knots by Daniel Ng Trudging high mountains to the valleys, dark below, Where breath grows thin and courage flees to cold, Draw warmly then to our sweet Lord, beware to lose Him not, Grasp that hand with sure faith!  He will loosen life’s […]
