Small Beginnings


“For who has despised the day of small things?” Zachariah 4:10 NKJV

One day I “looked” and realized the view I once took for granted was overgrown and gone.


Perfect weekend to be Thankful and reclaim what was lost.


Tomorrow my husband, son and I continue down the fence.


It may be a “small thing”, but the view to the future and possibilities are unlimited.

May you also be inspired to begin the small things and your view of unlimited possibilities open before your heart and eyes.

Most blessed weekend,

Thanksgiving Praise


Thanksgiving Praise

“Beautiful dew filled,

Field chilled,

Hallelujah we praise You

Thanksgiving morning!”

“I will praise the Name of God with a song,

And will magnify Him with thanksgiving.” Psalm 69:30 (ESV)


“First cup of coffee;

Grab the camera and go.

My cup overflows with Your bounty;

Your Light points the way I should flow.”

Rejecting or Rejoicing?

“He was despised and rejected by men…” Isaiah 53:3 (ESV)

Lord, on this day of Thanksgiving,

Are You speaking to me?

Have I “rejected” or “refused

for fear or shame?

Is my heart set on “man?”

Am I “despising” Your beauty?

Forgive me Lord. 


I study a lot from the Concordance.

When I am questioning;

Inquiring of knowledge;


Searching deep;

A “word” will surface

In my spirit.

Turning to the Concordance,

Going to the

First mention (of the word in Scripture)

Often times,

Seeing if Jesus,


Used the “word”.

(Although I know

All Scripture is God breathed)


This morning

 between a

Thankful heart, and

Questioning if

I too was

“rejecting” the

Plans He has for my “heart?”

I went looking for the word



Oh yes, there are

Multiple lines of


(approximately 30 times)

But at the end,

Right after the

After the last,


Starting fresh is

The Word,



(Abundant lines of 190 plus!

Not counting rejoices; rejoiceth; and rejoicing)


 Lv. 23:40  “…shall rejoice before the LORD your God…”

Dt. 12:7  “…shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand…”

Dt. 12:12 “…shall rejoice before the LORD your God…”


He spoke softy,

“Because My Son was

“despised and rejected”

You are

 Forgiven and


And you

…shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand…”



My Shepherd's protection on my path in life!
My Shepherd’s protection on my path in life!

On this day of Thanksgiving,

I thank You LORD for

Your tender mercy

Of lovingkindness,

Forgiveness, and



Gently speaking and

Guiding with Your

Wisdom and Word.

Let me not


All the good plans

You have for my life,

or the work of

Your Son’s hands.

Let me


Before You always

For You are my God

And I trust in Your

Protection on my

Path in life,

As I follow

Your Son,

Jesus Christ

“But let all those rejoice

Who put their trust in You;

Let them ever shout for joy,

Because You defend them;

Let those also who

love Your


Be joyful in You.”

Psalm 5:11 (NKJV)

"This is the day that the LORD has made; let us Rejoice and be glad in it! Psalm 118:24
