God At Work

Construction zone, God At Work lettering

Suddenly!

Spur of the moment

All at once

Unexpected

Opportunities abound

Divine Surprises!

Shadorma

You’ve probably seen those signs “Men At Work” around construction zones. Well, lately considering what has been happening in my life I would say I could hang up a sign “God At Work” because of so many blessings, new opportunities and just friendly encounters I am having lately. I am really enjoying it all and giving thanks to God.

I know God is always at work in our lives but much of the time He works in the background and He doesn’t always reveal to us what He’s doing or He allows us to see it at a later time.

But sometimes He brings us unexpected surprising blessings suddenly! And it is so great to experience those!

( The word “suddenly” occurs 40 times in the KJV bible. It’s interesting to read the different things that the Lord did “suddenly” )

Breathing in Life

Breathing, woman, freedom, life

Breath is a blessing

Our life is but a vapor

Thankful for each breath

Senryu

If you have ever lost your breath for a moment I am sure you can relate to this poem.

Having recently had an asthma attack that literally took my breath from me for a few seconds was very scary and made me realize how precious each breath I take is.

Life is short, breathe it in and give thanks for every breath!

Thankful

Thankful, leaves

Thankful for full plates now empty

Thankful for hands that cook and bake

Thankful for another day

Thankful for hearts that care

Thankful for thirst now quenched

Thankful for warm places

Thankful for

My life

Thankful

Thanksgiving

Fall Oak Leaf

Thank you God

For the trees that wave

Good Morning

To me

As I gaze in wonder

At he whose wings beat wildly

While he drinks nectar

In the rain

The breeze brings

a brown leaf to greet me

Upon the window pane

He stops briefly

As if to say

We are both aged

yet

let’s keep moving, seeking,

Another day of life

As if on cue

future minded squirrel

scurries past

gathering acorns

supplied by the waving trees

Ah, so much life surrounds me!

I give thanks

For all that be

and for eyes that see

thru the window to the world

Just outside my door

Where all God’s creation breathes

And lives

And encourages me

To do the same.

Richly Blessed

Stop, look around you.

Blessings come in many sizes,

How many do you see?

And how many are unseen?

Big and small blessings,

That live within your heart?

Treasure them all.

For if you have even one,

You are rich my friend!
