God Speaks To Me
God speaks to me in springtime
When the earth is wet with dew
In the Meadows and the prairies
As the grass comes poking through.
In the budding of a flower
On a bright and wondrous day
In the middle of a thunderstorm
As trees begin to sway.
God speaks to me in summer
When the sun is at its peak
In the marshes and the lowlands
As the frogs begin to creak.
In the chirping of a sparrow
On a calm and sultry morn
In the middle of a twilight sky
As day is being born.
God speaks to me in autumn
When the earth is turning brown
In the valleys and woodlands
As the leaves come tumbling down.
In the beauty that surrounds us
On a vast and rolling plain
In the middle of a harvest day
As barns are filled with grain.
God speaks to me in winter
When the frost is on the ground
In the forests and the mountains
As the flakes come swirling round.
In the presence of a full moon
On a cold and stormy night
In the middle of a country lane
When stars are shining bright.
God speaks to me in seasons
When a child is being born
In the middle of a wedding
As the vows are being sworn.
In the valley of the shadows"But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, 'God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.'" - James 4:6 If we act according to God's will and do our best to be faithful Christians, He will bestow the gift of His Grace upon us. So let us be humble and quiet - there is no need to spend your days focused on pride!
On a deathbed, I will flee
In the open arms of angels
As Jesus waits for me.

|Angels Among Us|
I was walking home from school on a cold winter day. I took a shortcut through the woods and lost my way. It was getting late and I was scared and alone, but then a kind old man took my hand and led me home.
Now, Momma could not see him, oh but he was standing there and I knew in my heart he was the answer to my prayers. Oh, I believe there are angels among us sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours to show us how to live, to teach us how to give, to guide us with the light of love.
When life held trouble times and had me down on my knees, there's always been someone come along and comfort me, a kind word from a stranger to lend a helping hand, a phone call from a friend just to say I understand.
Ain't it kind of funny at the dark end of the road that someone lights the way with just a single ray of hope?
Oh, I believe there are
angels among us sent down to us from somewhere up above. They come to you and to me in our darkest hours to show us how to live, to teach us how to give, to guide us with the light of love.
They wear so many faces, show up in the strangest places, to grace us with their mercy in our time of need.
Oh, I believe there are angels among us sent down to us from somewhere up above. They come to you and me in our darkest hours, to show us how to live, to teach us to give, to guide us with the light of love. To guide us with the light of love!

"Do not lack diligence; be fervent in spirit; serve the Lord." - Romans 12:11
Are you one of those people who are simply too busy for their own good? Has the hectic pace of life robbed you of the peace that might otherwise be yours through Jesus Christ? If so, you are doing a dis-service to yourself and to your family.
Through His Son, Jesus Christ, God offers you a peace that passes human understanding, but He won't force His peace upon you; in order to experience it, you must slow down long enough to sense His presence and His love. Today, as a gift to yourself, to your family, and to the world, be still and claim the inner peace that is your spiritual birthright - the peace of Jesus Christ. It is offered freely; it
has been paid for in full; it is yours for the asking. So ask...receive....and then share!
God has spoken repeatedly to his people through the prophets who spoke as they were inspired by the Holy Spirit of God. But so often, these people ignored their voice and abandoned their God. Let's not let the same thing be said of us!
Sovereign LORD and Abba Father, I praise you! Please never let me ever outlive my love for you or my heart's desire to be obedient and pleasing to you! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.Joyce.

Sometimes when a new baby is born,
" He is the image of his father " they say,
We all have family DNA and Genes in us,
We all are an image, our own, hurray.
" God created man in His own image"*
In the image of God He created Him:
Wouldn't it be wonderful to hear someone say some day,
" Your are the image of your Heavenly Father, Amen"
It's true , you are made in the image of your Heavenly Father,
It's difficult to imagine that in your mind,
But God created us in His image,
It is mind boggling but it is wonderful to know that, , that I find.
**( genesis 1: verses 27)
with a Happy Ending....Amen.
