The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:5)

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. (Isaiah 60:1)

Day 19 I Am Enough….Embracing the me I was born to be. What a gift to know my real 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)

“Be who you were created to be, and you will set the world on fire.” ~Sister Catherine of Siena~

30 Days Of Gratitude…Day 18

Day 18 Thankful and Grateful to participate in the #onethousandgifts bible study 🙏

Eucharisteo is the Biblical Greek word that literally means to give thanks… what I believe Jesus did each and every day regardless of His circumstances. ~ Ann Voskamp

Father, I thank You that You have heard me. — John 11:41

Give thanks to the Lord for He is good. His love endures forever… — Psalm 136:1-2

Living with losses, I may choose to still say yes to what He freely gives. ~ Ann

Eucharisteo means grace, thanksgiving, joy. It’s gratitude in action. Put to words. Put to motion.

It’s a turning. A widening. It’s easier to breathe.

Begin to wake to the wonder of the small… Begin to find joy in what really matters… in Who really matters. ~ Ann

Deep joy is only really found at the table of thanksgiving. ~ Ann

It’s both the invitation from and the door to Jesus. Thank You, Lord.

Eucharisteo.

30 Days Of Gratitude … Days 13-14 🙏

I Am Thankful and Grateful

Day 13: finding some of Jim’s words 😊❤️

FROM THE BEACH

The Mystery Of Life can not be more clearly explained then by

comparing Human Life to an Ocean Wave.

Human Life begins as does the Ocean Wave, mysteriously beyond

the horizon and out of sight.

Yet, from the time of their creation, we know they exist. In their

infancy they are recognized as a miracle, a gift from our Creator

and watched with awe.

As they grow, they are affected by the elements and forces of

nature which cannot be; controlled, contained and at times

explained.

In maturity, they can be warm and gentle or cold and forbidding:

productive or destructive.

As they pass maturity, they both strain to hold on to their

individuality and existence.

The Wave, after crashing onto a beach, surges in a froth, spreading

more and more slowly until it can no longer continue, in ‘death’, it is

forced to retreat back to the Ocean, its universe, to be reborn as a

new Force Of Nature.

Man, when no longer able to sustain a worldly existence, in death,

retreats back to his universe to be reborn as a new Force Of Nature.

All Life Is Precious and All Life Is Eternal.

Day 14: I Am Thankful and Grateful for each little miracle, like watching the birds in my feeder 🙏

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

1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (NKJV)

Romans 14:6a, “Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord.” (NIV)

1 Chronicles 16:34, “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” (NIV)

30 Days Of Gratitude… Day 12 🙏

Day 12 As a new day arises fresh and anew, so is my gratitude renewed. 🙏

“Give thanks to the Lord of lords: to him who alone does great wonders, who by his understanding made the heavens, who spread out the earth upon the waters, who made the great lights – the sun to govern the day, the moon and stars to govern the night…” (Psalm 136:3-9).

Whenever I have question (when don’t I?)

Or I just need a place to ‘be’

I take myself outside (Gods House)

It’s where I feel closest to Him. (always)

I sit in silence (me silent?!)

Only to be serenaded by the song and

chirps of my backyard cardinals. (Bird music)

And

I pray.

And

I heal.

And

I praise Him for this

life of mine.

That only He can give me.

I Am Thankful

And

I Am Grateful
