Give your whole heat to the Lord. Trust Him with your life and everything you care about. Don’t lean on your own understanding. The Lord is supreme in all things, and you can trust Him. Just talk to Him about everything. Include Him in every facet of your life. Then He will direct your path. He cares about you in the small and the big things. Don’t hold anything back from the Lord. Oh, how He loves you. Love Him back!
My Husband Jerry and I were in Zion National park when I took this Photo. This is one of our favorites of the National parks we have been too. We noticed a mountain goat in the forefront of this photo. It’s so tiny and gives an idea of the size of the rock he is standing on. I think if I didn’t tell you, you might have missed him. The Lord is my Rock, and He is very high. When things get tough, and its hard to keep my focus, I cry out to the Father and ask him to lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. I, with this cancer battle, encounter things all along my journey. Things that make me feel weak and question where I am. Recently I was shown by my oncologist paperwork from Medicare. The form was asking him to put me in Hospice. He answered the form and signed it in front of me telling them that he was not going to put me in hospice but would continue to treat me. It is because my cancer is terminal and I have been fighting the stage 4 part for two years. The enemy will use all kinds of things along our journey. I started thinking, I am really sick. Yes I know I am sick but it brought me to think about the end. Only the Lord knows when the end is, and I feel like I am doing so good. Questions bombarded my mind. We know this is the enemy when my every effort is to try to win this battle. It made me question things that were already settled in my heart. Do you know what we have to do at times like this? Run to the Rock that is Higher than us. He will pick us up and put our feet back on the path and send us back on our way. Thank you Lord for doing that for me. I love you, and pray that if anyone reading this writing of mine is troubled and fighting to find their way, would call on their father and be led to you my dear Jesus. You are our Rock!
Throughout America’s History, the Lord has favored us as a nation. We have always been a nation honoring God. From the very foundations of our Country, God has been acknowledged. We are seeing a gradual tearing down of our Godly beginnings. For many in our country, there is no Godly foundation. They would prefer to create a new foundation being built with liberal and ungodly agenda’s. Are we loosing our favor as a nation, with the Lord? Don’t let this happen!!
The Lord will give us favor as his followers as well. He will not let our enemy’s triumph over us. He will uphold our integrity. It is difficult to uphold integrity if we don’t have it. I would say honesty is another thing that is being forgotten in this world. We must live our lives open and honest. The Lord will honor integrity and set us before His face forever. That is where I want to be forever.
This photo was taken at the Reno Air Races. I love to see our military on display there. I feel a big lump in my throat when they do their fly overs. I Love this shot I got with the Jet fire.
Have you given a thought to Cheerfulness lately? This scripture talks about a cheerful look. This is so important. It’s the thing that can make someone’s day. It can make your day too if you make the decision to be cheerful. The response is always so wonderful when we can show Gods love with our cheerful countenance. I think it is a responsibility for us Christians. I can be as grumpy and unfriendly as anybody, but I choose to be cheerful and in so doing I am a light to others. The rest of the scripture pictured is, “good news gives health.” Well we all know that the Good News is the Gospel. Jesus came that we might have eternal life. That is the good news we all need to hear, it makes us healthy to hear the Lords words. Share these things, and be cheerful. This little girl is my granddaughter.
A few years back, I had the thrill of going to the East Coast with two of my daughters for leaf peeping. Everything looked like a Monet painting. Truly an amazing sight. More amazing is that God has given us the seasons to enjoy. As I was enjoying my East Coast Photo’s this morning, I was drawn to this little town nestled in the trees of Vermont. I was actually standing in the back of the Lincoln family home. The name of the Home is Hilldene and was built by Lincolns son for his Mother, and later his family. It was so exciting to be there on that Historic property. I got to see one of President Lincolns Top Hats, it was under glass of course. Vermont was a favorite place of Abraham Lincoln, and he would often take His family there for summer vacation. Therefore the son had a deep love for Vermont as well. So very interesting! This morning however, When I saw the little town down in the valley behind the Lincoln Estate, I thought of our Lord saving people down in that little town. I am sure he looks down, just like I was. The Lord rejoices over them with Joy, and He sings over them. He rejoices over you today too, and He sings over you. The Lord sings! How much more, should we sing up to Him. He loves to hear our voices singing praises to Him. So make a joyful noise to the Lord, and bless him today with your song.
