Sunset Over the Bay of Naples

Sunset on the Bay of Naples
~~~

 Sun rises and sets
It sinks lower and lower
And disappearing

Hope in the sunset
In all its wonder and awe
Tomorrow will come

~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God!

Sunset to Sunrise!





I have found when writing this post that sunrise and sunset are really treasured gifts.  It makes no difference whether it a sunrise or a sunset.  No difference because they are both glorious creations of God our Father.  And gratitude should be given at the beginning and the end of each day.

Sunrise and sunset
Beauty in reds and oranges
Glorious jewels

~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God!!!

The Joy in Haiku


Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
as a glowing disc in the West



must be open to it!
~~~~~~~~~~
The glory of God!
It sets in the western sky
Praise and Thanksgiving!!!

Mosaic Monday~~Reflection
















~~~~~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~~~~~

My mom lives in an adult community in Montana that has the loveliest gardens.  And a walk in the early morning allows for a stroll through it in compelling silence.  From the vivid colors to the dewdrops on the roses, you find yourself reflecting on creation and it's beauty.

~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God!!

The Little Red House and share in the beauty offered there.   And though I have nothing to offer at  Macro Monday  Lisa has a wonderful time planned for you.  The pictures all are an inspiration!

~~Sunlit Sunday~~

When Karen invited us to join her on Sunlit Sunday I was thinking what a neat idea.  As a matter of fact, I have something to offer.  This post happens to be a copy today's posting at my other blog, Provident God.  It's like sharing the radiance of God in more that one place.  I think we should continue to pass it on.  So thank you to Karen for offering us this opportunity!  This, too, is providence.

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.  ~~2Peter 3: 18~~

You can never say
Thank you to God too often
God is generous

All that I receive 
Is generously given
I reply, thank you

Picture Puzzle Day

Sunset, December 2008
Sunsets are glorious gifts from God. A time of day to reflect on the way you have progressed in this earthly journey. A time to see the challenges and gifts for what they are, an opportunity to grow in the love of God. The sunset becomes a beautiful cloak to be warn as we rest in the arms of our loving Father.
~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God!

Sunset Over the Colorado in Texas


Sunset over the Colorado in Texas

This was a glorious weekend. What started with anxiety and trepidation ended with a feeling of satisfaction of a job well done. Anxiety because Ron and I had never give a joint presentation before. And with the subject "stewardship" we weren't sure how we would be received. We wanted the presentation to be the work of the Holy Spirit and we hope we have succeeded. That is something we will never know.


The feeling of satisfaction came after the last presentation, not that it was successful but that we had finished the task we had been asked to do with a feeling of having done the work of the Lord. Does that sound hokey? Wasn't this is what "The Seventy-two" were asked to do? And then again we are called to do the work of the Lord everyday.
~~~~~~~
"The Summons" ( one of my favorite hymns) asks "Will you come and follow me if I but all your name? Will you go where you don't know and never be the same? Will you let my love be shown, will you let my name be known, will you let my life be grown in you and you in me?"

~~~~~~~

I think He just might have been successful with Ron and I this weekend. And to that I say,

THANKS BE TO GOD!!!
