We’ve All Been There, Haven’t We?

Living like a sheep can bring tremendous peace of mind.

The Shepherd by his very nature provides for all the needs of his sheep.

All the needs.

Yes, living like a sheep can be so peaceful.

But all too often we become dissatisfied with the Shepherd’s care

   Or become fearful that He will not provide for us.

    Or will let harm come to us.

We look to have our wants and oftentimes all of our needs met

  in just the way we want them to be met.

Like cranky toddlers we fuss and cry

insisting on our own way.

But The Shepherd by His very character cares for His sheep.

He is willing to lay His very life down in protecting them.

He gives them rest and refreshment as needed.

He feeds them from His very own nail-scarred hand.

And those sheep love their Shepherd and follow Him.

Following the Shepherd brings peace.

Life might sometimes bring great sorrow and loss.

Unexpected tragedies might come our way.

But we can always trust the Shepherd.

He knows what is best for His sheep. 

As long as the sheep follow the Shepherd all their needs will always be met.

Do you ever worry that the Shepherd might withhold something from you?

But could it be that your focus has shifted to your want rather than to your Shepherd?

Instead of gazing into His eyes your attention is fixed on something or other?

Yes, we’ve all been there haven’t we?

But the psalmist believed that the Shepherd would supply all of his wants.

Every. Single. One.

And with that trust he rested in the care of his Shepherd

And so can we.

Have you lately been missing the joy

 that comes from resting in the care of the Shepherd?

Don’t wait one second more.

Return to Him today.

He sees. He knows. He cares.

Living like a sheep can bring tremendous peace of mind.

Moving To Maine

I couldn’t be at a more aesthetic setting.

A gentle breeze blowing my hair.

The smell of sea air and the sound of happy voices.

Voices of young and old enjoying the ocean in July.

The sun shines bright warming the beach

and giving all a one of a kind day.

It’s not often like this, is it?

No there are days and days of plain hard work

Where we struggle to just get through.

But today…

         today shines with a promise of all good things.

For me, maybe a touch of heaven gold.

Why I even have my newly bought guide to

“Moving To Maine” by Victoria Doudera.

It’s a dream I’ve had for some time –

To live by a place near the sea.

To write and continue to serve people.

And on a day like today

I almost feel like it could happen.

Only God knows.

But one thing I do know is that one day I am moving.

My last final move.

After living in Pennsylvania, New York, Missouri and Virginia

I’ll finally leave for my true home;

My home in heaven with the Lord.

There it will be like everything I’ve always imagined

And more.

The ocean, soft breezes, flowers, birds singing,

The awesome blue sky with dazzling white clouds

And most of all

Yes, most of all, the Lord.

Those places that draw our senses to peak levels

will culminate one day in a place

A place that is grandeur than we can even imagine.

Are you moving there with me?

The grandest things here on earth pale in comparison

To the One Day with the Lord of all.

So I will read and enjoy these precious earthly moments

knowing that One day it will all be better than

I can possibly imagine.

Maine. Am I moving to Maine?

I have no idea.

But I am one day moving.

Are you coming with me?
