February has always been a month of hibernation ... 
or "rest" ... :) ...

perfect love casts out fear ...


i find comfort in this thought ... if we walk with Jesus, we have nothing to fear ... God KNOWS the end of our days and completes all the moments between now and then ...

Come Holy Spirit ...


1
Like the woman at the well, I was seeking
For things that could not satisfy.
And then I heard my Savior speaking—
“Draw from My well that never shall run dry.”
 Fill my cup, Lord;
I lift it up Lord;
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul.
Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more.
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole.
2
There are millions in this world who are seeking
For pleasures earthly goods afford.
But none can match the wondrous treasure
That I find in Jesus Christ my Lord.
3
So my brother if the things that this world gives you
Leave hungers that won’t pass away,
My blessed Lord will come and save you
If you kneel to Him and humbly pray—

~ Richard Blanchard

it's the simple things

a milder spell of weather has hit central Canada ... Praise the Lord for that!  the frigid temps were so restrictive ... i captured this scene on my walk the other day ... in our small town kids still get together for pick up hockey ... makes me smile ... and feel thankful ...

Who holds tomorrow ...


we heard this old hymn during our tv church this morning ... written by Ira Stanphill after his own crisis of faith ( http://www.paxplena.com/2008/03/song-of-week-i-know-who-holds-tomorrow.html ) ... i went hunting through my pics to find a backdrop for the chorus ... just sharing ... blessings on your sunday!

morning sunrise ...


i watch the skies ... not like a watchman might, but more like someone who thrills in the beauty that GOD creates and shares with His children ... camera at the ready - this was what i experienced this morning ...  i could hear Jesus words, "Come and see ... "  ... after seeing, i could only exclaim, Your Mercies are NEW every morning, Praise your Name Lord!

2018 is almost here ....


it's the in between days ... Christmas tinsel will soon be put away - and the new year will be upon us ... this verse from Philippians 1:6 encourages me to just keep walking in Jesus ... one day it will all be finished and "the day of Christ Jesus" will have begun ...

Greatest need ...

“If our greatest need had been information, 
God would have sent an educator.
If our greatest need had been technology, 

God would have sent us a scientist.
If our greatest need had been money, 

God would have sent us an economist.
But since our greatest need was forgiveness, 

God sent us a Savior.”

excerpt from "In the Manger" by Max Lucado
