Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things  as ye have:  for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Happy Spring and camels.


Happy Spring!

Although the official day of Spring was in March, now it is beginning to feel a lot  like Spring. 🙂

This is the day that the Lord has made and I am rejoicing and glad in it!

I hope you are too.

This is the day which the Lord hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

Here is a fun fact for today.

Despite its hump, a camel has a straight spine. 🙂

Listen to the quiet.

Don’t be afraid to take time and smell the roses. 🙂

Some times we are so rushed to get things done,  and we should make good use of our time but not so fast that we miss out on the beauty and the people around us. So today I encourage you to stop for a minute, take a deep breath, look around.  Is there anything you are missing out on?

 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10

I really really really like listening to music but the other day when I was working  I realized that it was quiet, and my first thought was to turn on some music  but then I head God’s still, small voice saying, Be still and know that I am God.

And I Just stood still for a moment and thought, He is God. It flushed out all the worries that would normally fill my thoughts. To know that He is God and He loves me, He cares about me, He wants me to cast my cares on Him, He gives me peace in the midst of turmoil. He sent His only son to die for me and He does and is so much more.  

Can I ever comprehend what it is to know that ……..


Psalm 46:10

Perfect Peace

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.
 Trust ye in the Lord for ever:
for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

Isaiah 26:3-4


Perfect Peace and Everlasting Strength, I did nothing to deserve such promises but that is how much my Jesus loves me.

Day 30

To whom am I thankful?

Not my lucky stars, because I don’t think stars are lucky to begin with.

My thanks goes to the one who made those beautiful stars.

What Christ gave me was the greatest gift ever.

I am so unworthy of this gift and His love, but I am so grateful for it. And it is to Him that all my gratitude goes.

I am thankful to him for all the things I have listed in the past month. He gave me friends, family, joy, sunshine and the ability and reason to be thankful. 

Because of Jesus, I CAN give thanks in everything.

 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalm 34:1

I hope you have enjoyed this month of blog posts.

I encourage you to try it yourself.

Everyday for the next month find something new to be thankful for. Being thankful is not just for one day in November.

Thanksgiving Day is just a day set aside to remind us.

 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28
