Love Dwells

“In quiet, Love’s canopy dwells.”

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High

Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”

Psalm 91:1 NKJV

“In the shadow of His hand He has hidden me.” Isaiah 49:2 NKJV

First Love

Heart beat – secretly in love.

God, You know our every heart-secret…” Psalm 44:21 TPT

“I hear this most gentle whisper from One I never guessed would speak to me. ” Psalm 81:5 TMT

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” Psalm 91:1 NKJV

My heart is discovering as I press into writing and sharing again, more the opening up and sharing, I am more at peace. Focusing on Jesus’ Beauty, Faithfulness and the Love of God has empowered me to step into daily life with a joyful heart of expectation for the future 💜🕊️🙏

Thank you for stopping by and joining me on life’s journey.

Harvest Calls

“Cool morning,

Warmer afternoon.

Harvest is calling in reservations,

“Autumn will be here soon.”

“So Ruth went to the field to gather the grain the reapers left behind….

At that moment, Boaz came from Bethlehem to survey his harvest. He greeted the harvesters, “May Yahweh bless you.” They replied, May Yahweh bless you…”

“Noticing Ruth …Boaz walked over to Ruth and said, “Listen my daughter, don’t leave this field to glean somewhere else. Stay here in my field…

Watch my harvesters to see into which field they go to cut grain, and follow them.”

The story of “Ruth, Chapter 2: 3-9” from The Passion Translation. Ruth “a Moabite girl who came back…” With Naomi from the land of Moab to her homeland of Bethlehem, (the house of Bread).

May you and your family be blessed today as we return to the house of bread in Bethlehem during the Harvest season.

“May you have a full and rich reward from Yahweh, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to find shelter!” Ruth 2:12 TPT

Casting my Net

“Sun not up over the horizon yet.

The sea is quiet as I cast my net.

Reaching out into the depths of the day;


Please, keep the winds of adversity at bay.

Speak, “Peace, Peace!” to the beating storms,

Peace, Peace!

For the prayers of the watchmen guard the shores long.

Under the covenant and mercy of You,

Casting my net to sail dreams of new.”

“Jesus shouted to them, “Throw your net over the starboard side, you’ll catch some!” And they did as He said, and they caught so many fish they couldn’t even pull in the net.” John 21:6 TPT

Delightfully sharing memories of one of the greatest joys of my heart, pilgrimage to Israel.

Celestial Heights

“Thank You LORD, Creator of all the universe.

Father of all lights.

Stars sing out Your praises, a choir of celestial heights!

I bring my heart before You, unto Your Beloved Son, guided by Your Holy Spirit – Three Divine in One.

Thank You for Your forgiveness.

Your atoning Precious Blood.

Without the Cross of Calvary,

I would be lost,

Doomed forever,

Without Your Love.”

“But God demonstrates His own love towards us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 NKJV

“Praise the LORD from the heavens;

Praise Him in the heights!

Praise Him, all His angels;

Praise Him, all His hosts!

Praise Him, sun and moon;

Praise Him, all you stats of light!”

Psalm 148:1-3 NKJV

Desktop Breakaway

Have you ever decided enough is enough, your either going to learn to do something totally different or it’s not going to happen, consistently at all?

Well here I am at the crossroads, not the first time either, of what to do next.

My snuggie zone is safe. Plenty of room to stretch out and create on my desktop.

But it doesn’t get the posting done weekly or even close to achieving posting daily.

So how ya gonna do this?

My goal is in the evening when I am done with the day’s work and evening chores, to use my time before bed to draft up a post from my most favorite “snuggy zone” my couch.

This is where every morning, every morning, I have quite time and journal. Going back to where the day started fresh and rewriting the directions of my heart from His, in hopes of sharing a little dab of my heart. So far, if three days counts as so far, it’s been a nice way to relax for a peaceful night of sleep.

Does anyone have any words of wisdom to share on how you arrange your day to write and post? I would welcome hearing your comments.

Breaking away from comfortable, safe places is hard to do.

I guess one of the crossroad signs should read,

“Writer, willing to learn – This Way”

Thank you friends and neighbors.

“This is the Way, walk in it…” Isaiah 30:21 NKJV



Anchored – hope secures the soul.

“This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, Jesus…” Hebrews 6:19 NKJV

Behold New

“September dawns and we start again;

Goodbye summer’s dry, hot winds.

Welcome rain washing colors true;

Refreshing gifts from our Savior

Who makes all things new.”

“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered or come to mind.” Isaiah 65:17NKJV

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmation show His handiworks. Day to day utters speech, and night reveals knowledge.” Psalm 19:1-2 NKJV
