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. 🙂

And everything was going great until………………………. The bag on top of the box I was carrying started to fall and I did not move fast enough.

So the brand new mug that my friend had just bought hit the cement floor and you guessed it, BROKE.

If only I would have listened to that tiny little thought I had earlier.

Although my friend was very nice about it and I offered to buy a new one I still felt awful.

Then she told me “You know what my Mother would have said, you were hauling a Lazy man’s load”.

That is a great thing to remember for our everyday lives.

Sometimes I ask God what He wants me to do, He will show me something, then with all my excitement I start piling things up then I hear a still small voice “That’s enough for right now” and do I listen?……. sometimes I do but when I don’t  then comes the big crash and I feel like a failure.

 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.  Jeremiah 29:11

I encourage you as I remind myself, don’t carry a lazy man’s load.

Two or three successful loads is better than one disastrous load.

So we need to listen to God’s still small voice and try to avoid a lazy man’s mess. 🙂


If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.     2 Chronicles 7:14

The other day I was helping a friend carry some stuff. I already had a good load  in my arms and as I reached for just ONE more thing, this tiny little thought entered my head, “Don’t ! You have enough. You might break something. Just come back for a second load.” But did I Listen? NO.

And everything was going great until ………… To be continued. 🙂

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.
