Song of the Hour

by Chris Tomlin
We stand and lift up our hands
For the joy of the Lord is
our strength
We bow down and worship
Him now
How great, how awesome is He
And together we sing
Holy is the Lord God Almighty
The earth is filled with His glory
Holy is the Lord God Almighty
The earth is filled with His glory
The earth is filled with His glory
(repeat from the beginning)
And together we sing, everyone sing
It's rising up
All around
It's the anthem of
The Lord's renown
Holy, holy is the Lord Almighty
Holy, holy

Thought of the Day #2

The Holy Scriptures were not given to us that we should enclose them in books, but that we should engrave them upon our hearts.
~ St. John Chrysostom ~

Read Psalm 119:1~8

I'm a Kanga!

Today, has been a full day. I worked at the library for 8 hours and didn't sleep much, but I am doing okay. I spent time reading and praying last night and I believe that really helped me to be able to maintain today. I can say that the scripture "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me," has been fulfilled. I couldn't have done it without Him.

This evening I spent time setting up this page and visiting other blogs. I found some great sites and wonderful tips. I've added some links and my email address, hope you like the changes. I also found this really funny personality quiz at one of my friends' blogs. The quiz is called "100 Acre Personality," and you answer questions to determine whom you are most like. My results are in and I am more like Kanga, who would have thought it. Anyway, it was a fun way to end my day.

Take the 100 Acre Personality Quiz!

Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to go to the House of the Lord and praise His wonderful name. Talk w/you soon.

Bye now ~
"In all things, give Him honor and praise"

Sweet Memories

Lately, I have spent a lot of time thinking about the East Coast and what I miss most. I realized that most of my memories were of times of year, places visited and the fun my family and I had at the beach. Yes, we have family and friends we miss, but most of all we all miss the beach. Especially our Christmas' at Nags Head. Recently, I discovered photo images online of Nags Head. There are pictures like the one above and of lighthouses, including my favorite, Bodie Island, and it gave me a piece of home I was needing.

As I look at the above picture, there are a lot of emotions swirling around me. As I relax and take in the picture, I am filled with peace and a sense of calm that I haven't had in a long time. I am remembering the walks along this very beach, along Virginia Beach, along the bridges in New York on the Hudson River and along the Arkansas River. I am filled with memories of the same response to the moving water and how I was feeling before and after. For me, water has a calming effect when life has gotten out of control. As a child growing up in NY, I would walk across the bridges just to look at the water and everything would be all right inside.

Today, I am remembering the day I gave my heart to the Lord, why, when and where; the day when He called me back unto himself, and when He said "Go ye" and I said "Send me." These are all sweet memories that I have collected along this journey and though I am not where I want to be or maybe even, where God wants me to be, I know that I am a long way from where I once was. I was depending on the water to fill me with calm and peace, but now I know that only He can do it completely, everyday, all the time. I am learning that I can still have that sense of calm and peace everyday, without the water, if I remember who is the author of my life. I'll visit the waterside, both physically and, more importantly, spiritually when life gets a little crazy. Well, I am going now to spend time with my Lord and Savior, before I go to bed, because life has been a little crazy lately.

How about you, have you had a drink today from the living water? What are your sweet memories?

Rejoice! Again, I say Rejoice!

This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be in glad in it.

Take a moment and give thanks for all He has done for you.
Give honor and praise to His Glorious Name.

Thought of the Day #1

Today, while I was thinking about the things I would share here, I also found myself answering a request for assistance. In my answer to this request, I mentioned "something to think about," and at that moment I realized that this was a wonderful opening topic. I realized that we as women must have something to think about, for we too are students on this journey of life.

I recall reading in Karen Andreola's book "Charlotte Mason Companion," the question: "What is the best curriculum for a well-brought up person? She indicates that the curriculum should have 3 things: 1. Something or someone to love; 2. Something to do; and 3. Something to think about. I don't know about you, but sometimes I forget to do #3. I spend alot of time doing and loving but not necessarily sitting and pondering or meditating as the Lord would have us do. I remember, I used to read the Proverb for the next day the night before and just think about it and how it applied to my life. I am finding I miss these times and I need to develop the habit to do it again. I think I will start again today.

I leave you w/our first Thought of the Day - be blessed my friends.

"He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust." Ps. 91:1-2 (nkjv)
*originally written 10/17

Something New!

This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship as we, together, learn from the Lord how to be all that He has created us to be. Please share your thoughts, quotes and ideas as I impart what the Lord is doing in and thru my life on this wonderful journey called Life. Remember, your input is encouraged and welcome.

So lets begin, shall we.
