A heart with imagination

My title is something that hopped out of my head during a time of lowness. Why do I feel faint in heart. When the wind blows and you stand firm against it, I say I must not give up. But my heart cries out and says HELP ME!

1. My heart does have imagination.

2. My heart is full of hope.

3. My heart is looks to My Father in heaven.

4.My heart feels the hands of protection.

5.My heart sees what the blind does not see.

and then there is His heart.........

6. His heart KNOWS my heart.

7. His heart sees deeper then anyone can see.

8. His heart longs for my my hands to reach out and cry... DADDY!!

9. His heart breaks when my heart breaks.

10. His heart hears those unspoken hurts and pains.. and yet...... He still loves me.

Thank you, Daddy♥

p.s. It is hard to count 1000 gifts I am sure there are many that I don't see. I hope to have my eyes open to His grace and mercy and that is new every morning

Looking in from the outside

My trip to Virginia was wonderful in many ways. Having long conversation with many and and even short meaningful words received.

However, I have walked away with a newness in heart and hope that I can express the very thing that I am feeling.

There are four different ways I seen love given, received and remembered.

My first look in was looking into the eyes of one who longs and misses her true love. I see the hurt and pain that is caused by never being able to see or touch her spouse, but received the healing through talking, crying and looking through old pictures of the days that he lived.

Secondly, The visiting on two that are just united and seeing the passion in the eyes of one who truly can't believe that she is worthy of such a love and yet is so blessed to receive such a love. The newly weds have such a gaze that is hard to put into words. It is such a faraway feeling for me, but comes alive when seeing the two who are just happy to have each other.

Thirdly,seeing the eyes of my father look upon his bride of 13 years.And seeing that they are there for each other. She is there for him ,as well as he for her. His silent words speak so loudly to me, and moves me to look at the deeper things that I choose not to look at because of fear.
And last but not least, The love of my grandparents. She is 87 and he is 91 and they just want to be with one another no matter what. She is physically blind, but yearns to hear him breath next to her in there bed. He is unable to walk with out help and just wants to be home with her at his side. She listens to him read there daily devotional, even if he is not clear the words melt into her heart.........I want this, I need this....
So I came home with a newness of heart and my eyes have seen and heard that there is restoration and healing .... and a NEW feeling of love in my heart for Tom Bernhardt... My love.

Going on a trip

The kids and I are going on a trip to VA. This trip is meant to bless those who have lost a loved one as of last year. Lose is difficult to think about. However, it stirs and helps us to grow no matter how it makes us feel.
The road that we go down during our heart aches is so unpredictable, yet in the end the Lord really does have a purpose . We may only see lines like a map and not know what direction we are to go in.

But He knows.
I am so greatful for His cleansing power. That he washes me white as snow.

So during my trip I will bless the widow. I will lend a ear. I will shed some tears for the heart that is longing for it's partner. I will hug the parents that have lost a son. I will look into the eyes of a brother who has lost a sibling.

I hope that you all can bless someone who needs a hug, or someone who just needs to talk.

Being thankful no matter what

Today I am choosing to be thankful even when it's difficult.

I am thankful for my husband who was there when the car stopped working this morning.

I am thankful for a warm home to come home to.

I am thankful for dishes that need to be done. It means we have food in our cabinets.

I am thankful for my children , even if they do argue. It just means that they love each other and are trying to work things out.

I am thankful for laundry that needs to be done, it means we have clothes for our backs.

and most of all!

I am thankful for my salvation, because I don't deserve it, but HE thought I did.

From the kitchen...I have a pile of dirty dishes that I should tend to.

I am wearing...Wool socks , jeans and a long sleeve shirt. I love my wool socks!

I am creating...sadly I have not taken the time to create... I will have to work on that.

I am VA in 5 days. Looking forward to that.

I am reading...I am reading One thousand Gifts

I am hoping... This storm passes and that we don't loose power.

I am hearing...My daughter play her piano.

Around the house...Are Christmas lights that have been left hanging in the house . It brings a twinkle into the house during this long winter.

One of my favorite things...Learning music, hearing music that is tickling my ear and my heart.
