Joy in the morning

Yes, I started my day coloring a picture!  Remember how much fun it was to color pictures when you were a little girl?  Well, this morning I decided that I was going to start my day coloring flowers and butterflies and you know what it felt good!

I'm reminded of the words in Mark 10 that Jesus shared with the people ~ I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.  Sometimes, I take life too seriously...

I heard a wonderful sermon yesterday from Pastor Aaron about being too judgmental and you know what he stepped on my toes and it felt good!  I need to leave all of that to God and be reminded to accept and love and let God!  I need to be His arms loving and sharing about the wonderful things He has done in my life.  Encourage people to read God's word and let Him do the rest.

It probably sounds weird to say it felt good, but honestly I've been so torn up about things that are so out of my control.  I know that God was reminding me to mind my own business and straighten up around my own door and let Him take care of me and everybody else!  I serve a Mighty God who loves me in spite of me ~ thank goodness!

So I colored this morning and thanked God for the blessing of being able to color and enjoy coloring!  I've also been reading about One Thousand Gifts by Amy ???  you know the book it's fabulous!  A wonderful reminder of all the little things we need to give thanks for and how being thankful truly does change our life!

I have to share again I've had this book since it came out, but didn't pick it up to read it until God's timing had me pick it up and well He showed up with a message for me.  Perhaps it's your time to read about giving thanks.  Check it out it's a great read!

I always encourage you to read things I've read that are good for your soul, but never ever do I want to recommend anything more than reading God's Word.  Relationship with HIM is most important in order to have this you must be in HIS Word, so He can love on you, comfort you, even fuss at you, all of what relationship is about with HIM.

Color a picture today!

Fighting the blues...

Honesty is the best policy and it seems that lately I've been fighting the particular reason other than I'm just there right now...

Ever been there...

Lots going on...

Life happens...

People surround you with difficult problems and none of us can fix the problems...

The television with all the fighting, all the bad things happening, all the ugly, never focusing on the good things in the world.  It's still here, so why can't we broadcast some good news?  Do we all relish bringing others down so much that it pays for these programs?  What is happening to us?  When are we going to focus on the LIGHT?

I've always been real on this blog and that will always be what you find here truth.

Believe me I know I am blessed, but sometimes we still can't pull ourselves out of a pit, but I know who can get me out of the pit...So I've got my eyes fixed on Jesus knowing that indeed He is the answer.

No need for phone calls to check on me...I'm okay just down for the count, but not out!

Just sharing truth ~ We all need more JESUS!

Whose your boss?

Yesterday I was talking with a young man that helps me in my yard.  John is a man with special needs, but he loves to take care of the neighborhood yards.  He helps a lot of people around where I live and he truly is a huge help!

We were talking and he looked up at me with is special way and said "So Mrs. Debbie you still working for God?"  that's his way of asking about the ministry and I said Yes John I am.  It looks a little different, but I'm still working for God.  Well, Mrs. Deb He is the best boss!

He's right God is the best boss!  Slowly, I turned and said you do know you work for Him to right?  Sure do Mrs. Deb.

It's pretty cool to know who My True Boss is...So whose your boss?

Getting older?

Okie dokey, did the title get your attention?  None of us like to think about getting older, but today I'm thinking on the topic.

First off I want to say I may be over fifty, but it seems like yesterday...

I was attending high school football games yelling for the home team...

listening to the latest song on the radio loud as possible on the car radio...louder made you cooler...

driving a little faster, because it's the thing to do...doesn't matter how dangerous it was...

Yes, all of us did those things too!

It's hard to describe that when I was younger, I felt like people that were the age I am now must feel so old.  Now that I'm here I realize that no, they didn't. It felt to them just like it does to me now, like it was yesterday!  It's hard to put it into words, but getting older is weird.  It's just a number.  I think we still want some of the same things happiness, love, health, good times they just might look a little different than when we were in high school.  Hopefully, we go about these differently than when we were younger.

I am preparing for a talk on Sunday to a group at church that are special and I want to remind them they are special.  It is my prayer that the Lord will give me the right words to share that allow them to feel God's love and that they still matter so very much to all of us and in God's Kingdom!  We always matter.  It doesn't matter what stage in life we are at on this journey we matter to God!  All of us need this reminder at times...

God showed up through my friend, Frankie and lead me to a special woman named Anna whose testimony teaches this topic so well...WE Matter, age, status, and other stuff not so much!  

I am reminded of Psalm 139:13-14
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Age is indeed just a number (some bigger than others) but our work is never done and neither is the fun!

Do we ever get that light bulb to go off? Finally understanding?

Over and over I ask myself and women that attend studies with me, "Do we ever get it?"

Your asking, "Do we get what?"

Just how much God loves us in spite of us!

We read God's Word, we know how much He loves us because over and over He shows us and  then He sent HIS SON to die for each one of us.  Yet we doubt, we show fear, we say how and every time we say these words that break His heart.  How can you love me?

Well, we have the words from Isaiah 55: 8-9 that help us to understand this fact about each of us ~
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.
As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

God is simply so much larger than we are able to comprehend.  Give thanks that we serve a God that we just don't quite get it.  He is just more love, more compassion, more forgiveness, more of everything and that is why we just can't quite grasp Him...

I give thanks that indeed He is more!  Thank You LORD for being so much MORE than I will ever get or understand.  I love you with all my heart, but You love me more.  Amen

I will tell...

Anybody ever spot one of these little critters on your trips to the mountains?  Did you hear the warning they sent to the whole mountain top about your arrival in their space?  A high pitched shrill kind of noise?  Well, they are sharing the news with all their buddies about company coming to the mountain.  I love them.  They have so much personality, but I side track...They share the news of your arrival is the point of my sharing this photo.

In Psalm 9:1 these words are written:
I will praise you, O Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders.

We must tell of all God's wonders.  He is so still in the business of working wonders and we need to share them with others!  God wants us to tell about what HE is doing in our life not what we are doing, but what HE is doing.  I know we live in a me, me, me, world, but it's not about me or you - it's about Our Creator!  It's truly is all about Him and the quicker we realize it and begin the share we get to begin the most awesome adventure sharing in HIS WONDERS.

Share today.

Plans change and it's how you readjust that matters...

Well, anytime I don't make it to Colorado I am sad and part of it is the surprises that the Lord always provides, when I get to be in this wonderful happy place.

I've learned though...He shows up everywhere!  Surprise!

Yes, in the words of PhilipYancey, "God goes where He is wanted".

I love this quote that A. W. Tozer shared, "I want the presence of God Himself, or I don't want anything at all to do with  religion. I want all that God has or I don't want any."

God shows up and the question truly is did we invite Him in?  Everyday life goes along with our everyday duties and we get caught up in it, but did we invite God to join us?

He will show up, so don't forget to ask Him to join you in the car riding to work or perhaps the lunch table with your friends.  He would love to surprise all of us!

Sweet blessings,

P. S. Don't you love this pic from my trip to Colorado this summer?  I turned around and there was this beautiful surprise just enjoying a meal.

Sing to the Lord

Even the hummingbirds were Praising the Lord for the rain!  Truly they were just putting their little heads up to the sky and I believing giving thanks in their own way.

The pool was filled to the brim and running over after the almost 6 inches of rain that we so desperately needed.  Each drop was a gift and it renewed each of us as it fell to the ground.

I wasn't feeling well yesterday with a virus and still have lingering effects today, but I was thankful to watch the rain.  Oh plans changed, but I'm getting better with that too.  I've thrown the calendar out for now and letting life happen.  It's not so bad not being attached by a chain to a calendar.  In fact, it's rather liberating after so many years of checking to be sure every item on it is done and marked off.  It's actually quite a feeling of freedom.

So, the birds, dogs, and I were practicing what the words found in Psalm 147 ~

Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving; make music to our God on the harp.  He covers the sky with clouds; he supplies the earth with rain.

Thank you Lord for the rain and I'm sorry about my singing voice, but ...oh well!

Our eager learner.  Always ready to learn something new

Our okay I'll get to it learner...

I already know everything I need to know learner...see even proof in the closed reading for the day!

Seriously, I've been reading Amy Voskamp's "One Thousand Gifts" and loving it!  It's been out awhile and I've had it awhile, but wasn't time to read it until this week.  I always have them ready and wait for the prompting to pick them up for my lesson that I know awaits me.  Truthfully, it's something I'm learning to wait until it's the right time ~ God's timing!

It's time to learn and grow.  It's a great read so far and honestly I've gotten to a portion that I am really pondering and wanted to share with you.

I came to the scripture Philippians 4: 11-12 and some of her thoughts that have really got my attention.  Now I've read this many times (scripture) and I've heard sermons on it, but I know the Lord is teaching me something new with this book.

"I have learned how to be content with whatever I have.  I  know how to live on almost nothing or with everything.  I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is on a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little."  Amy shared the word "eucharisteo"  which means thanks or thanksgiving.  She went on to share that Paul used the word twice in this short passage and like Amy it caught my attention this time.  WE have to learn how to live our life fully with thanks!  We have to learn how to be content.  It doesn't just happen ~ we must learn it.  Perhaps if you are like me it might take a little time or maybe you are a quick learner like Sadie.  The learning process may be easy or it might be difficult, but we need to be filled with thanks that we are learning!

What do you want to learn?

I am learning how to be in the moment and not worry about tomorrow.  I have so enjoyed my summer because I have been learning to enjoy each moment.  Yes, it all started with a phone call from the doctor that I had to come back for a breast biopsy.  Phone calls that happen to other people, but never you.  These moments have a tendency to wake you up!  I realized that time is so very precious and that I wanted to enjoy each moment and I am making an effort to enjoy my moments.  I've set up a seating area on my patio that I've sat outside even in 100 degree weather and still enjoyed it!  People use to do this all the time and you know what you still can!!!!  Honestly, I've treasured the times watching the hummingbirds, the dogs, the planes, the sun, the moon, the get the picture.  I had to learn to do this because well I'm a busy my own mind!

I've learned to take the time to give thanks for the small blessings and that brings me to Amy's book.  I've had it, but it wasn't God's timing yet to read it.  Well, it is powerful and definitely fits where God is teaching me right now. I am learning as well. The blessings that surround us all the time and how we need to give thanks!  I stand in the pool and thank God for the cool water, the hummingbirds that have entertained me all summer, and then the rain this morning.  May I just tell you that it has been awesome to realize how God is so in this special time with me. I feel closer to God than ever before and it's because of the realization of "being thankful" for the good and the bad! 

I was also blessed with good news from the biopsy report, but also with that terrible moment that I got that call and went through the procedure.  It woke me up to continue to learn and grow, but also to be content right where I am.  Enjoy your moments ~ each and every one of them are special!

Are you learning?

One of the studies this fall that I am in the process of with other women is about Joseph.  Our week last week looked at the names of all of Jacob's children and their meanings.

Honestly what were these parents thinking?  I wonder the same thing when I hear some of the names children are given now days.  Do we realize  children have to walk with this the rest of their life?  Well, I guess Leah and Jacob didn't care too much.  After all, the first son was named Reuben, which means in Hebrew "the LORD has seen my misery."  The word teaches us that Leah actually named her sons which again shows such apathy on Jacob's part with anything connected to Leah. If Jacob cared surely he wouldn't have picked this name!   Anyway, I was so sad leaving the study last night after we discussed this family dynamic.  Life is tough enough without having to carry around a name that everyone knows that your name means "your mom was miserable when she had you!"

Names during this time were so very important and everyone knew what they meant.  Not only did this family already have terrible anger, jealousy, self-worth, bitterness, and so much more wrong now this young baby was dealt the name of Reuben = misery.  It's no wonder that Reuben later in life made such terrible choices!

Choices that from the outset this family had to know were not going to work out well.  Jacob lied and manipulated his own brother all to be manipulated by his uncle Laban who set up his own daughters for a life of heartache!  Daughter #1, #Also unwanted wife, Leah is able to pop out the children, but Daughter #2, also wife #2, Rachel is Jacob's true love, so heartache is happening and will continue to happen.  After all, it's all these children will know.  Imagine, sitting down for a family meal.  Do you think they ever were able to share a meal?  If they did was it peaceful?  Do you think they ever were able to laugh again after the father sent the other sister to her man's tent?  Broken hearts everywhere is all I am able to picture.  What about you?

Yet with all of these things happening Joseph made a choice to believe the stories that would have been shared with all the family about Abraham and the promises of God.  Yes, he was in the same family with all the misery, jealousy, hate and was at the center of a lot of it. Yet, he made a choice to believe God and His Promises!  Same family, but different choices.

Whatever your situation are you making the same choice to believe God's promises or will you believe the bad choices of other humans?  Will you continue the legacy of misery or hope?

Today, when you meet someone crossing your path don't assume you know their story.  Remember, you never know what might be behind even their name.  Instead, allow God's light to shine brightly through you and on to them!

"Do whatever he tells you"

Powerful words from Mary the mother of Jesus, "Do whatever he tells you".  Words that sound simple enough, but...
well, we are humans that like our own way!  Especially it seems nowadays...with the its all about me world that we live in.

 No finger pointing because it's hard for all of us to be obedient.  Some times we all mess up and with that said we all need to strive to follow Mary's words, so that we will have a much much better life!

In my own journey, once I realized that indeed I don't have all the answers and realized who does my life became much better.  I discovered more adventure than ever before!  Jesus wants to fill us to the brim, so that we discover more and more of Him, but we have to let go and do what He says!

Truth only discovered by giving it a try.  I encourage you to let go.  The adventure that awaits each of us simply beyond words!  We will be changed just like the water that turned to wine and wow simply put "it will be way better than before"!

Enjoying the adventure,

It's just hard for us to grasp some of the details in the Bible.  Times are so different.  To have water we walk in the kitchen and turn on the faucet, but not people in Jesus time.  No they had to walk to the well gather the water they needed for the day and walk back to the home.  They would have had containers that they would haul and they would have been heavy - none of this turning on and off of faucets. It was hard work to have water!

Preparing for Sunday school this weekend and studying the story found in John 2 about water into wine it really got me to thinking about so many different thoughts that we should all ponder.  One is how special Jesus treated ALL people.  His first miracle of turning this water into wine he shared with the servants none of the other guests at this wedding knew, but the servants.  The ones who made that long walk to the well to bring water for the wedding festivities witnessed this miracle.  The people that earlier in the day would have washed the guests feet with water would now witness these containers hold the water that Jesus would turn into wine.  Not just wine, but the master of the banquet thought it was the best that would have been served first just now being served!  Only Jesus!

Jesus surprises us just when we need it!  Where do you need the water turned to wine today?  Are you running low with family issues?  Are you feeling just out of it?  Are you feeling dumb?  Are you stressed to the max?  Are you feeling useless?  Are you feeling ugly?

Ask Jesus to surprise you with the refreshment that only He provides.  Allow Him to perhaps use you today to help someone be renewed...Allow Him to surprise YOU and remind You just how special you truly are!

Awaiting surprises,

A little bit dirty...

My reminder everyday that we don't ever get there...only by God's grace are we okay!

The angel in the picture was in my home when we had our house fire.  If you notice she isn't clean and fresh, she still shows the dark marks of fire, but we cleaned her up as best we could.  I told my friends helping me that I wanted to save her just that way to be my daily reminder that we don't ever get totally cleaned up here on earth.  We are humans and all of us sin.  Hopefully, we do make better choices, but we still sin!!

So ever so gently daily I am reminded that only God's grace makes me okay!  A gift that only God gives.  My reminder daily of how much He truly loves each of us that He continually tries to clean us up...over and over and over again!

John 3:16 says it best ~ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Bird eat Bird world...

I know you have heard the old expression "It's a dog eat dog world" right?  Well, yesterday in my backyard the war was on!  Between the birds and bees!  Yes, the bees were even getting into it with the hummingbirds.  It was better than a movie!  The swooping in and knocking the other one off to be replaced by another!  It was very entertaining couple of hours actually!

Yes, this one thinks I'm all alone ~ YES!

Only to be realize at the slapping of another to get out of here!  

Full out war was on now...It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon watching God's creation taking care of business.  At the same time being reminded that even nature seems to be caught up in the it's all about me world...

Lord, thank you for the gift of enjoying the world You created and forgive me for the times that I get caught up in me, me, us to open our eyes to allow You to reveal a whole new, beautiful world.  Amen

Should ? Should not? Choices

It's easy looking at the picture above which choice to make in the road right?  Well, it is still a choice whether we turn or we continue straight and make our own path?

A lot of the time in our own journey we get to make what looks like pretty simple choices to people sitting on the sidelines of our life.  We look at someone else's life and we think why in the world would they do that and yet we have done the same in our own life!  It's true!  Don't be dishonest with yourself take a good look, before I ask you to truly lay it out on the line to learn for yourself.

I want to ask some simple questions.  When you were or maybe you still are growing up ~ did you ever sneak into a movie?  Did you ever add a little bit to your job resume'?  Did you ever play hooky from school?  Did you ever use a fake id?  Did you answer yes to any of these questions?  Well...we made a choice that we know that we probably should not have done,  but we did.  Maybe you didn't do any of these, but you did something else.  What does it say about us?  Looking at these alone they don't look that bad, but they were still against the path we are suppose to take...

All of this for us to look at the story of Joseph a little bit.  In one of the studies this week we have been looking at the ancestors of Joseph and the untruths or choices that were in his family history.  The untruths that were told and then repeated along the family tree over and over again.  Untruths that continually repeated themselves if you read the story of Abram and you might think this question "how do you think Abram that you can pass your wife off as your sister and their be no consequence?  How Isaac can you do the exact same thing? How Abram is it a good thing to sleep with Hagar? How Jacob do you think you can sleep with all these women and problems not arise?  How do you think that playing favorites among your children is not going to cause a huge problem?  It's so easy to read these stories and think how did they not see what they were doing? How indeed?

The author of the study offered that she often times would ask how did Abram sleep with Hagar?  How could Sarah not wait on God? Her reply just spoke to my heart about my own life right now to these's awful easy for me to say should or should not....Her response was "Yes, they should have and they shouldn't have, but they didn't and they did and in spite of it all, God was gracious and forgiving, and continued to work in their lives to accomplish His Will."  Praise the LORD!

Are you like me and perhaps you have done this too?  You think how did they do that?  You know the right answer why didn't they?

Just this week, I was reading a book and the author stated her name which is Ann means "full of grace" and the Lord prompted me to think well your first name is Deborah which means "Bee" and my middle name is Ann which means "full of grace"  and I think He was giving me a powerful message that I am sharing with you right now...BEE FULL OF GRACE...sometimes I let my way of thinking get in the way of showing grace.  I apologize for the times that I think I know it all.  I know I fail constantly.  I also think I know the right answer a lot of the time, but it does not mean that I make the right choice all the time!  I admit I fail.  I admit that I sometimes speak when I should listen.  I hear the Lord telling me to not offer my great words of wisdom sometimes...don't get me wrong I will make another shouldn't have in the future.  After all, I am human too!

So once again I've been taught a lesson that I needed to be reminded of...I am trying to bee full of grace!  So I might sting you like a bee being full of grace!

Blue polish...

Yes I went out of my comfort zone!  Way out of my comfort zone.  

I walked into the nail shop today.  I went to pick my color which is always some shade of pink, if I'm really out there it is still some shade of pink!

I felt that gentle push to let Teresa pick my color.  I've been going to Teresa now for well over 2 years and I love her.  She is the sweetest young woman and always happy.  She has tried for awhile to say Ms. Debbie why don't you try this and I'm like oh it's pretty, but not me.  Today, I felt the nudge to let her pick my color.  Well, she picked blue!  Blue!  I would never pick blue for myself.  I think it looks good on others, but me not so much, but the smile on her face for allowing her to pick her favorite color for me was great!

Now I'm still not sure that blue is for me, but it is until the next time.  My only problem is she's already picked out my next  color and it's purple!  Pretty, but again not sure it's me!  Oh they will be purple because if it makes her day it will make mine too!  She knows nail colors better than me anyway!

I have to admit it was a wow moment seeing the excitement on her face that I trusted her to pick for me!  She truly is a jewel with my fingers and toes!

What do you need?

Lately, I've been spending time just being with the Lord.  Yep, I don't feel guilty about it.  Yes, I still have lots of things I need to be doing, but I've realized that the list truly gets done quicker if I stop and sit with the LORD.

The picture above is the water in the pool.  I sit quietly; before, I've always had my books and I am reading at a feverish pitch, but now ... I sit, I float, I listen and it's fabulous.  

Recently, the story of the rich young ruler as been brought to me through different readings and the thought that keeps crossing my mind is what do I truly need.  Many of you know that I went through a fire several years ago and lost it all.  I realized during this walk that stuff was just stuff and we don't take it with us and I was able to let go of stuff.  Still I clung to different things that I thought I needed whether it was other's approval or acceptance or my time.  I think the Lord is showing me that anything we cling to whether it is physical stuff or someone  ~  We have to let go of all of it to truly be with the LORD.

My calendar was something I clung to so desperately.  It was as if the calendar being full gave my life purpose.  The fuller the calendar was the fuller I thought my life would be well it wasn' once again the Lord taught me that just being with Him is and will give my life meaning.  Oh, it looks different it might be busy serving, doing kingdom work or it might be just being with Him.  Just the two of us with Him teaching me more and more about allowing Him to fill me up with Him.  He teaches me through His Word, through His gift of nature and creation, through others, but He constantly teaches me.  

Letting go and truly realizing it is Him that I need is a constant lesson that I seem to need over and over and I when I sit to learn; well it's amazing!

Amazed once again,

Do you remember when you were little and older people (like me now) would say things to you like don't wish your life away?  Time flies when your having fun and those type of statements and you would then roll your eyes with such respect?  I know it's shocking that we acted like the younger people that surround us now.

Time does fly!  Today is one of my nephews birthday.  I remember 17 years ago being with Pam and Ken waiting on Kyle to arrive into this world.  It happened pretty quickly that day much to Pam's anguish...too fast for them to help her much with the pain.  I'll never forget his arrival into this world.  Yet it's been 17 years and he graduates this year. Time indeed does fly!  

In my quiet time this morning the word "time" kept coming to my mind.  I felt lead to think about the way I spend my time daily.  Well some of my time is spent doing things that matter, but then some of my valuable time is wasted.  Yes, wasted!  When you realize how quickly it passes yet we spend time worrying and we know in Matthew 6 by the words given by Jesus it doesn't help ~ Who of you can add a single hour to his life? Read the whole passage about worry in Matthew 6.  Why do we waste time with worry?  So many things that we waste our precious seconds doing that will never amount to anything!

Today treasure your seconds every one of them.  I searched to see how many times the word "time" is mentioned in the bible ~ some form of the word is used 888 times in the NIV version.  What are we doing with our time?  Another verse that the LORD brought to my mind is from Esther when her uncle ask her a very important question.  And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?

What might the Lord be speaking to you about time?

Happy Day...

I love this pic!  I took this at the beginning of the summer and today marks the beginning of the fall for a lot of us.  Oh, we will indeed still have days that feel like the middle of summer, but it is the beginning of school, football, falling leaves (maybe just because it is so dry, but) festivals, so many things that we all treasure.  Do you ever think about how when the seasons change the things you look forward to with each one?

Winter is hot chocolate, snowy days in the south when we get to stay home because none of us know how to drive in the stuff....some of us think we do, but well most of us don't!!! I really have to look hard for stuff about winter other than these two because I don't like being cold...sweaters scratch or make me itch and bundled up and running in the cold to get inside well anyway we all including me have something we like about the winter!  I know!  A great fire with a good book ~ I love that!

Spring we love the beginning of flowers blooming, warm days without sweaters, birds, butterflies, smiles, longer days, sunshine, and more sunshine!  I love the light!!!! Life beginning and budding out, starting over...oh I love the spring!

Summer well we love swimming, cooking outside, travel, adventure, exploring, and so much more!  

We are treated everyday with so many things that we love!  Are we praising God for each and everyone? Are we praising Him for the ones we don't as well..(cold, wet, winters) I love the words found in Psalm 118:1 ~
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Yes indeed, fall, winter, spring, or summer everyday God's love endures forever!  Thank you Lord for loving me!

Sweet blessings and enjoy this day with your friends and family,
