Day’s Door

“Cat claw in the morning,

Starting off the day.

Better ask for wisdom,

To make it through the fray.”


= The day’s highest protection. =


“Truth’s shining light guides me in my choices and decisions:

The revelation of Your Word makes my pathway clear…

Breathe life into me again by Your living Word.”

Psalm 119:105 & 107 TPT


“I AM the Door.” John 10:7 NKJV


Safety and Protection in your day today,

Denise

Autumn’s Pondering Look

My kitchen’s prepped and waiting for the traditional baking to begin.

The milk and eggs, set out early this morning, are warming up to room temperature, while the oven awaits my return to turn on to get the day going.

But today, in this season of Thanksgiving, I’m moving slow.

Not quick to turn the page, letting my heart soak in the faithfulness of our Father who has brought us through another year.


“Lord, I’m having a hard time letting this autumn season go.

Winter approaches, clearly, as glistening crystal snow.

Help me turn the page,

Begin a new chapter in the book.

For Autumn’s beauty captivates my heart’s pondering looking.”


“Surely, I have calmed and quieted my soul,

Like a weaned child is my soul within me.”

Psalm 131:2 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

Awaken the Sun!


“Magnificent morning sunrise!

In peace we say, “Goodbye.”

2021 you’ve been filled with numerous challenges,

And tears shed by many people’s eyes.

It’s not your fault you were numbered “2021,”

For you’ve been faithful each day to come.

But, who knows if in God’s time,

You were called to awaken all people

To His Son.”



“The sun shall no longer be your light by day,

Nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you;

But the LORD will be to you an everlasting light,

And your God your glory.

Your sun shall no longer go down,

Nor shall your moon withdraw itself;

For the LORD will be your everlasting light,

And the days of your mourning shall be ended.”

Isaiah 60:19-20 NKJV


Thank you fellow bloggers for stopping by and your encouragement throughout the year.

Blessings in the New Year to come!

A Good Expectation


“Thank You Lord, for this day.

No expectations, only play.

Snoring dog on pillow resides;

Christmas tree in hope reminds.

This year has nearly come to close,

But here at Your feet,

 A confident expectation of Your good

In the coming new year glows.”


“Out of Zion, the Perfection of Beauty,

God will shine forth.

Psalm 50:2 NKJV

Enjoying the last days of 2021.

Blessings to you and your household from Abby and me.

Denise

Silver Wings


“Morning dew perfect,

Crisp air from Your breath.

Resting in You Lord,

You are my nest.

Wonderful, Counselor,

Gift from above.

Covering the earth, Lord,

Silver wings of a Dove.”


“I see You sparkling like silver and glistening like gold,

Covered by the beautiful wings of a dove.”

Psalm 68:13 TPT

Peaceful Heart

“Thank You Lord for Your faithfulness;

Yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Let me not borrow pain;

Nor be another’s sorrow.

Thank You for reminding me,

Even when I sleep,

You’re looking out for all my ways,

And in Your health You’ll keep.

Fix my eyes on Your plans;

Peaceful heart and stable land.

Assured You speak the best to me,

For in Christ Jesus,

I’m truly free!”


“You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You;

Because he trust in You.”

Isaiah 26:3 NKJV

Home healing from the change of seasons winds.

May you and your household be in perfect peace, and health today.

Blessings,

Denise

Not Afraid

Good morning Lord,

Thank You for this day.

You set it all in place; You planned it this way.

Glorify Your Son. Let the people call upon His Name!

For in Christ Jesus, we are redeemed and forever changed!


“I am Yahweh, Your Mighty God!

I grip your right hand and won’t let you go!

I whisper to you; ‘Don’t be afraid, I am here to help you!”

Isaiah 41:13 The Passion Translation


Stepping into a new day, and week holding on to the One who reminds me, “Do not be Afraid.”

Blessings,

Denise

Creative Eyes

“Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is.” Jackson Pollock

Paul Jackson Pollack was an American painter and abstract expressionist. 1912-1956


One of the joys of working in an Primary/Elementary school is to see the kids art work lining the hallway by the Art room.

I’m always amazed at their creativity. The following pictures are 3-D handmade clay figures expressing how they see themselves ❤️ Enjoy!


Peyton’s curly golden hair is an especially nice touch. Yep, I think I see cheer pom-poms 🥰 Go Peyton!
This one reminds me of wild hair “gingerbread” coming in from a windy playground ❤️ I’m so glad you have your yellow boots on because it’s muddy out there!
I think “Alondra”was thinking about lunch because it looks like her lunchbox ❤️
I love the peaks in the background especially since we live in a fairly flat location ❤️ I think I see a “steering wheel”. Maybe Leo is planning a trip to the mountains!
I couldn’t see the student’s name on this picture, but I love the fly away curls!❤️

As I stood looking at their clay figures expressing their unique selves, I couldn’t help but be encouraged to see how beautiful they see themselves and each other ❤️

I’m not sure if Elena is jumping or doing a cheer, but the details of her face in the clay is beautiful ❤️❤️
My personal favorite (I think I see myself this way), Red, White and Blue through and through ❤️🇺🇲 Go Edger!🇺🇲🇺🇲❤️

“We are the clay and You are the Potter. Each one of us is the creative work of Your hands.’ Isaiah 64:8 The Passion Translation


“To see through a child’s eyes, is a daily chuckle and a full face smile ” quote by me❤️

I hope you enjoyed a “seeing” my daily world ❤️


“And if you tenderly care for this little one on My behalf, you are tenderly caring for Me ” Matthew 18:5 The Passion Translation

Blessings and have a great day! Denise
