I sometimes wonder, do trees smile? If they do, how? This question comes to mind because when I’m among them, I do smile. My heart smiles. It’s that simple. In the whisper of the wind, there is the soft rustling of leaves and branches, and if you listen, they will share their secrets, and they will help you heal. Amongst them, I am home.
I want to run naked through the fields…barefoot through our dreams and live 👣

“Can I really stand here unashamed
Knowin’ that Your love for me won’t change?
Oh God, if that’s really true
Then let the truth be told” (truth be told lyrics)
We are all broken. Dictionary defines ‘broken’ this way: fragmented, torn, damaged, ruined, weakened in strength,spirit……and to deny that, well, we’d only be lying to ourselves, wouldn’t we? Yet, while we may be lying to ourselves and everyone else, we can’t lie and hide from God. But, and I insert a HUGE BUT here! There’s good news, really good news. God. Still. Loves. Us!
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.”
As I continue my Christian journey, I feel God quietly calling to me. In order for me to break free from the chains in my life and the lies I tell myself, I know I need to draw closer to Him. And, as I spend more and more time with Him, the clearer it becomes that God loves me in all my brokenness.
Jesus came to save the lost and broken. I admit my weaknesses, my brokenness, and accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. He saved me!
I Am….Embracing the me I was born to be. What a gift to know my Father made me for His purpose, and His love for me is unconditional ❤️🙏
“But now, O LORD, you are our Father;
we are the clay, and you are our potter;
we are all the work of your hand.” (Isaiah 64:8)
I Am Thankful and Grateful for each little miracle, like watching the birds in my yard 🙏
Heavenly Father, sometimes, ok a lot if times, I tend to take my miracles for granted, or I take for granted You already know that I am grateful, so I don’t express my gratitude as often as I should. Whatever my reasons, today, this moment, I pray to you on fallen knees, how Grateful I Am.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen
