Our 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 an economist.

But since our greatest need was forgiveness,
God sent us a Saviour.

The peace of a perfect trust

Oh for the peace of a perfect trust, My loving God in Thee
Unwavering faith that never doubts Thy choice is best for me.

Best, tho my plans be set at naught; Best tho the way be rough;
Best thou my earthly store be scant- In thee I have enough.

And e'en tho disappointments come, They, too are best for me,
To wean me from this changing world, And lead me nearer Thee.

Oh for the peace of a perfect trust, That looks away from all,
Yet sees Thy hand in everything, In great events and small.

That hears Thy voice, a father's voice, directing for the best;
Oh, for the peace of a perfect trust, a heart with Thee at rest.

Out my kitchen window....

I love this time of year, how the sun sets just about the time
I'm usually cooking dinner.
And I love my little kitchen windows that allow me this view!
Last night it was especially gorgeous and exceptionally peaceful despite
the traffic, power lines and the constant
motion in front of our house.
It had rained all day, and just before the sun went down there was a break in the clouds.  The entire house took on this golden glow, so much so, it almost didn't seem real....

Sweet is the rest that comes at close of day,
When life departs, the spirit flies away
To be with Thee, the One whom I adore,
And live with Thee and Thine for evermore.

This blessed rest, O Master, give to me,
That I may find my peace, my all in Thee.

One Year

Sweet to Remember....Thankful to Heal

The heart takes time.....
to heal
to recover, to grow, to love, to understand, to trust

to heal

Thankful for a loving, patient father on this earth
and one in Heaven
who is ever patient with me....
