Psalm 107:21–“Oh, that mankind would praise the Lord for His goodness and for His wonderful works to the children of men!”

+
Even though. . .
We rebelled against the words of God… We were bound in affliction and sins… We despised the counsel of the Most High… We hated all manner of His sustenance… We drew near to the gates of death… We were at our wits end… We were brought low through affliction, oppression and sorrow…

Despite all this. . .
His mercy endures forever.
He redeemed us from the enemy.
He delivered us from hunger, thirst, and despair.
He leads us in the right path.
He satisfies the longing soul.
He fills the hungry soul with goodness.
He brings us out of darkness.
He brought us from the shadow of death.
He broke our chains asunder.
He sent his word and healed us.
He calms the angry seas and storms.
He keeps affliction away.
He watches over us like a shepherd.

“Whoever is wise and will see these things, they shall understand the loving kindness of the Lord!”

Thank you for the memories,

The joys and wonders of life,

The blessing of divine glories…

What peace abundantly rife!

~

You birthed me as a baby girl,

Swaddled up in my mother’s arms;

Tenderly kissed my golden curls

As I snuggled in her charms.

 ~

Thanks for all my family and friends,

Thanks for pretty flowers and weeds.

Sunshine and rain brought amends

As You sought to establish Your seeds.

~

Oh God, my sins no longer sting

They’re hung on the cross of Jesus.

He entered into my life to bring

A life so much more prestigious.

 ~

Your truth appeased my doubting heart

I was healed by Your living waters.

Eternal life You did truly impart

To my lost spirit and many others.

~

I peered inside my very soul;

Faithfully, You are present there.

See that loving spirit glow…

A sweet heavenly flare!  Amen

The Human Touch

 

‘Tis the human touch in this world that counts,

The touch of your hand and mine,

Which means far more to the fainting heart

Than shelter and bread and wine;

For shelter is gone when the night is o’er,

And bread lasts only a day,

But the touch of the hand and the sound of the voice

Sing on in the soul always.

~Spencer Michael Free

A moment to share

Let you know I care

Thanks for your touch

It means so very much.

 

What joys you bring

Your likes just sing

Your comments all

Mean a lot, y’all!

 

Reach others today

Be blessed always

Sing peace and love

From our God above.

 

Shalom,

Jeanne

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

…………………………………………..

Many needs of people–trying

To find some peace–crying

No home, no bed–sighing

Hungry, hurting–dying

Memories crowding, goodbye’ing

Rushing by, raggedy bits a’ lying

Leftovers the world overlooked

………………………………………………..

Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray my soul the Lord will keep

………………………………………………………..

What do I fear at night–?

The monsters?  They won’t bite

They’re only shadows of the night

Like ghosts running out of light

………………………………………………………..

Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

If I should die before I wake

I pray the Lord my soul will take.

God bless mommy, gramma and gramps

My sisters and brothers

My doggie and cat

All my cousins, uncles and aunts

My friends and everyone at school

Thank you, Father, for everything, amen.

+

Goodnight world.

Many Thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

I hope you all have a joyful, heartwarming day of thanksgiving.  Let us give thanks always, not merely on this holiday. 

Thank you, Father, for your wonderful gifts of life and love.  Help us to appreciate what we do have and hold everything dear to our hearts.  We praise You and adore You.  Grant us peace.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.

It is such a wonder to log in to my blog and see the smiling new friends God has provided me with this year.  You are such a welcome sight, my friends.  You encourage and challenge me in so many ways.  I thank the Lord for each one of you.

Shalom!
