"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Still creating

When I see the color of a sunrise or a sunset I am reminded He is STILL creating. Creation didn't end in Genesis 1. Despite all the ugliness in our world God is still at work creating beauty.  There is a balsam popular tree in my yard - this type of tree never grew on the island I came from on the west coast. When I gaze at this tree and watch the wind blowing the white, shimmering catkins backlit in sunlight I am deeply moved.  He cares enough to continue to create. Praise God! « All Your works shall praise You, O Lord. » Psalm 145:10

God as Mother

No more cooking in the barn. I have a thankful heart. I have a new Premier propane gas range in my kitchen and I am using it. This is the 20inch model and it has battery ignition-I use rechargeable batteries. I had a difficult time and it took awhile for me to hook it up but throughout the process I felt again the caring, nurturing, mothering qualities of our God. In scripture Jesus say's, «I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gather's her chicks under her wings. » Luke 13:34. Is God like a mother? As a mother alone with a young child I see the pure form of His nurturing love. He has the qualities of a mother that I aspire to be.
