Love for Baby Jesus

When my oldest Granddaughter 487075_280642388714422_2000357850_n..

was about two years old…

Christmas had come and I put out the Nativity with Baby Jesus… Mary/Joseph… 3 Wise Men… Angel… Sheep… Cow… Donkey… Camel… Shepherds…

The figures were placed inside the Manger my friend’s Mom had given me…

My Granddaughter would walk up and look and look at it… and I would tell her all of the figures names…

She really liked Baby Jesusk3123947

and I would find Baby Jesus everywhere

In other rooms… on the couch… on the coffee table… in her toys…

As you can see by this grin… she was so sweet… and still is!

When I would ask her, “Where is Baby Jesus Taylor?”…

she always seemed to know…

We still have this set of figures…

They have been handled a lot… and are 44 years old this Christmas…

bought when my husband returned from Viet Nam and we had our first real Christmas together…

Today our little new one… “Kitty” decided our other Nativity was very pretty… or maybe she liked Baby Jesus k3123947like Taylor…

I found her laying right beside it… Staying there for quite awhile just looking at the Holy Family

I loved how she had laid her paws on it…

Me and My God Talking…

My quiet time is in the morning…

God and I have many conversations at this time…

k11603470

Is it prayer?

I actually just call it talking… k4923057

You won’t hear my voice… but, God does

It’s a time I bring up all of those who are in need… Sometimes me

and if you were able to hear

You would hear this soft voice telling me in a quiet way

k12969163

Things I need to do…

People I need to give special care to…

Cards I need to write…k7124984

People I need to call…k12000398

Kind words that need to be spoken…

ketell0048s

I try and listen

and take heed to these loving words coming to me…

Someone was laid on my heart today…

and so… I will have to do it…

what God has whispered in my ear to do…

It’s usually just a kind actti087a0203

I’m not HimI am just his messenger…

k5365570

but, He has given me this wonderful task of helping others in small ways…

What an honor!

Memorial Day: “Heart Feelings”

k10848218  “Heart Feelings”  by: Marilyn Griffin

I always begin with…

“I come to You in prayer, Dear Lord“…

My Heart Feelings to You poured.

 

I stand , sit or kneel…

I raise them up, Dear Lord…

My Heart Feelings poured.

 

Men, women and children…

I feel their loss, Dear Lord…

My Heart Feelings poured.

 

Daddys, Mommas, Brothers , Sisters  gone…

Lost in foreign lands, Dear Lord…

My Heart Feelings poured.

 

Memorials for this day…

Flowers, prayers, memories… Dear Lord…

My Heart Feelings poured.

 

Keep Our Country in your care…

Our Forces safe from harm, Dear Lord…

My Heart Feelings poured.

 

Feelings of sadness… loss and hurt…

Keep us staying strong, Dear Lord…

My Heart feelings poured.

 

Let us rejoice in Freedom that we have…

Keep us grateful, Dear Lord…

My Heart Feelings to You poured!

So thankful for my provider… and hope… that there will be better days ahead…

I know we haven’t seen the likes of so many people in other countries… but, just a taste is enough for me to want it to end NOW!…

You place your hand on His Bible, when you swear to tell the Truth
His name is on our greatest Monuments, and all our money too,
And when we Pledge allegiance, there’s no doubt where we stand,
There is no separation, we’re one Nation under Him.

Chorus:
In God We Still Trust
Here in America
He’s the one we turn to every time
The goin’ gets rough
He is the source of all our Strength
The One who watches over us
Here in America
In God We Still Trust

Now there are those among us, who want to push Him out,
And erase His name from everything, this country’s all about,
From the Schoolhouse to the Courthouse, they’re Silencing His Word,
Now it’s time for all Believers, to make our Voices heard.

In God We Still Trust,
Here in America
He’s the one we turn to every time
The goin’ gets rough
He is the source of all our Strength
The One who watches over us
Here in America
In God We Still Trust

Here in America
Here in America
Here in America,

In God We Still Trust
Here in America,

In God We Still Trust
Here in America

Surreal

I would have to say my mostsurreal moment was when I went to church one Sunday…

k7835691

I was sitting in the pew k3691160 … listening to the sermon… What it was about… I have no idea

We… being my husband and two little boys had been going to this church for a few months… u14290574

My cousin, her husband and little boy had been going too…

I had never actually belonged to a church before…

I had went off and on with friends and such…

As I was sitting there… a feeling of such calmnesscame over me…k12547323

I will never forget that!…

It was like I was in a dream-like state k11220885

I heard a voice… Not a voice of someone around me…

I say to this day… “It was the Lord talking”…

Surreal???… Oh, yes it was!

k2933616

I found myself listening to this voice as it said, “Give her time”…

I knew the voice was speaking of me…

I sat there and then… what seemed like someone literally lifting me up… almost trance-like… I was getting up and walking… I felt like I was floating

Down the middle of the church aisle that led to the front of the church… k4532912

All I knew… was that I wanted to profess my belief in Jesus

He had entered my heart… I must have finally let the barriers down… letting Him see me and me…  Him

k1300984

It was such a transformation!…

Yes, “surreal” is such a good word for this experience

I felt like I was in a dream-like state as I mentioned… and this feeling of pure joy abounded for weeks…

I was in a place of such peacefulnessI knew it was real!…

I had so many ups/downs in the years to come…

A son who was diagnosed with Bi-polar Disorder

A husband home from Viet-Nam with past memories flaring up…

k8512307

My job in the public school system with Special Needs children…

k0662770

Parents growing older… A dad dying…

A Mother (90) years old)… moving in with us…

A Mother passing away

A Brother passing away…

A Sister passing away…

k2618690

My husband’s family leaving us… one by one…

But, ever since that “surreal” happening… I have not been alone

My Lord has been there …

and now I picture my hand in His

k6321470

... if ever I need comfort… if ever I need strength… if ever I need love

and it’s so “surreal” …

In God’s Hands…

Passing on an email you have probably read many times… but, at this time in our country’s trials… we may need to look toward whose Hands our world is really in…

your families and your relationships
and the leadership of your country
in God‘s hands because…
