Psalm 45:10-11

"Listen, O daughter, consider and give ear;
Forget your people and your father's house.

The king is enthralled by your beauty;
Honor him, for he is your lord."

This verse was given to me many years ago while I was in a YWAM school. God recently brought this back in front of me and it speaks volumes to me. Actually, the whole of it, verses 10-17 is what was prayed over me; I receive it more now than I did then; powerful and so intimately for me.

Random Noodle Thoughts

It is Saturday morning, clouds are hanging low in the sky. There are more rainy, cloudy days in SC than I care for...but if it actually rains today the grass and flowers and springs wonders will celebrate and the pollen may get pulled out of the air and washed down the drain. That is definitely a plus. Last week I had to wash the layers of pollen off of my car and there was yellow pools of water all over my driveway and yard. It like SNOWS pollen this time of year!

I started running again this week. I take Sasha with me so she can get her energy out; Sasha has hit a learning curve! She has been a different dog this week! Like when a three year old finally realizes YOU ARE THE BOSS and moves WITH you instead of always fighting against you. Seriously, she is looking more and more like a dog whisperer trained dog. I am so proud! Back to running, I haven't been running for over a year or so... and kicking it back into gear is tough; but Friday I felt that wonderful feeling yo…

Sharing

Over the past few weeks I have heard some profound messages in my classes and our chapel, as well as seeing dear friends grieve the death of their husband and father after a vigorous battle with pancreatic cancer. Needless to say, my Spirit has been attentive. Some truths are being illuminated. At times like these, our eyes get a heavenly adjustment if our hearts are open and receptive.

With permission I share these profound incites.

"What is crushed? I feel I am being crushed....and Your Word says, "We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed..." this is the struggle we all feel, a question we all ask and some of us are literally being crushed, or so it seems. My friend, Dale, had a good answer to this - or rather, he pointed to the correct understanding and definition of "being crushed," here are his words:

My family has been wondering what God's definition of crushed was...he says we will be pressed but not crushed or whatever...I had a sho…

O LORD, you are my God;
I will exalt you and praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness
you have done marvelous things,
things planned long ago.

Warm Breezes

How thankful I am to feel the warm spring breezes blow through the house today....Oh how tired I have grown of the coldness. I know, it wasn't as intense as they have had out west or in the Northeast, but it was still more bitterly cold than I am use to and I was getting weary of the cold days.

Trees and bushes are starting to bloom...it is so pretty. I love Spring. A few years ago, a friend of mine gave me a note on the first day of Spring; I don't think I have stopped before that day to notice the official first day of Spring but it loved the thought - winter is OVER and NEW Life is bursting forth!!! Time to celebrate Easter - Our Risen Lord has conquered Death!!! What a WONDERFUL TIME OF YEAR!!! Old things are made NEW! Yes!! So, I want to be more mindful of this time of year; anyone want to have a SPRING PARTY?

I had a good day today; little things made it nice - waking up early, enjoying the morning sky, rollerblading with Sasha, meeting a friend for coffee - hav…

He Takes Care of Me

Earlier this week I made a fast trip to Nashville for the memorial service of my dear friend, David Lipscomb. His wife and I are good friends and I was privileged to know them and was so blessed in going. My trip was quite the adventure - I drove head on into a BLIZZARD. Now, I am a Florida girl and some of you are use to such inclement weather and may think I am overstating the gravity of this snowstorm; but IT WAS A BLIZZARD - one minute I was thinking, "awww, it is SO PRETTY' and the next moment, "Where is the ROAD!?" Praise the Lord for His protection and the big huge truck in front of me that I followed. Thank the Lord it only lasted about an hour. There was snow 3 inches deep on my windshield.

My time in Nashville was surreal. Basically I felt God graciously blessed me to be there. Death is never easy or expected but through David's supportive friends and family, the beautiful message that REALITY is that we live only in a shadow, God has paradise w…

Hebrews 10:35-36

35So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. 36You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

HE is MY CONFIDENCE!! I love this verse; He is the Solid Rock, unmovable, secure and Strong! Jesus Only Jesus! Don't ya just LOVE Him!!
