In a lowly manger He lay

The Prince of Peace in goodwill came

The Mighty God upon the hay

In a lowly manger He lay

God came upon earth that day

Everlasting Father His name

In a lowly manger He lay

The Prince of Peace in goodwill came

Triolet

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 KJV

Manifold

Tamborine
“Manifold” Tambourine

Many kinds; numerous and varied:

Are God’s Grace and Wisdom shown

To beings in the heavenlies

And to those in the world

By us the church on earth

If we minister

To one another

With our

Gifts

Nonet

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

1 Peter 4:10

To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, Ephesians 3:10

(The photo is of one of my Tambourines that I use in praise and worship. I name all my Tambourines as I feel each instrument has a different purpose. This Tamborine I named “Manifold” because it reflects light in so many ways. I use it in worship to praise God for His Manifold Grace And Wisdom according to the scriptures 1 Peter 4:10 and Ephesians 3:10 )

Dear God

,Carpet of fallen leaves

Do you see the real me

Beneath the heavenly skies

Leaf covered path

On my daily walk I pass by and over so many fallen leaves, some noticeable, some not. Some freshly fallen are filled with beautiful colors while some are withered, lifeless, or hidden beneath others.

It causes me to think that they are like many of us in this world. Some of us are more noticeable than others, perhaps more lively, active or attractive while others might be older, less active, or perhaps feel insignificant or hidden because they are covered in worries or burdens.

Just like the many leaves they may wonder if anyone sees the real them.

But the truth is that God does.

He sees us all, for that is one of His names.

In Genesis 16:13 it says “So she called the name of the LORD who spoke to her, “You are ‘God who sees,’ because I have truly seen the one who looks after me.”

Hagar was a runaway who was alone in the wilderness with her child, she figured no one cared about her and she thought she and her son were going to die—alone….but God saw her and He spoke to her and helped her.

Matthew 10:29 says that not even a sparrow falls to the earth without God knowing about it, so I am thinking it must be the same for leaves and people too. He sees us all.

Everbody matters

For the clear truth is written

He’s “God who sees me”

Thoughts On Love

The word LOVE

Love never ends.

It’s easy to love someone

Who also loves you

Someone who’s true

Who’s patient and kind

And of the same mind

It’s easy to love that someone

It’s not easy to love someone

Who doesn’t love you

Someone who’s untrue

Who’s impatient and unkind

And of a different mind

It’s not easy to love that someone

But Jesus said to love everyone

Even that someone

Who doesn’t love you

Who’s impatient and untrue

Of a different mind or unkind

Who’s arrogant and rude everyday

Who selfishly insists on their own way

Loving everyone is not easy, tis true

But it’s something Jesus told us to do

Rhyme

Jesus said: “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you,…” John 13:34

What 1 Corinthians 13 says about Love:

Love is patient and kind;

love does not envy or boast;

it is not arrogant or rude

It does not insist on its own way;

it is not irritable or resentful;

it does not rejoice at wrongdoing,

but rejoices with the truth.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends.

More Than A Conqueror

Victory Wreath

Come follow me, I’ll never leave you

I’ll show you all the things you must do

To win life’s battles against your foe

And gain victory no matter where you go

You’ll be more than a conqueror, it tis true

Your enemies will always pursue

But them you’ll always mightily subdue

Together them we’ll overthrow

Come follow me

You’ll never be alone, for it’ll be us two

I’ll lead and guide and bring you through

In every challenge you’ll conquer and grow

Power and victory you’ll always bestow

Everyday I’ll give you victories anew!

Come follow me
