Every Day, A Gift

  • Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not s the world gives do I give to you. do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful." (John 14:27)
  • I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
  • There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. (1 John 4:18)
  • A psychedelic shadow pattern
  • The grain of humor and pleasure from my brother's off-key singing
  • The fine lines of my Grandmother's hands, brought out by a sprinkling of flour
  • Soaring vultures, which look strangely picturesque
  • Our amazing camping trip in October, doing daring things!
  • Mr. Byron's hands, crinkled and spotted with memories
  • The wrinkled pages of my book, which remind me that I don't need to be perfect

  • The plan for my day out, written on a folded sheet of paper and unfolded to reveal a day of adventure
  • Someone to listen when I need to be heard
  • Someone to bear the burdens I can't possibly bear
  • Someone who knows my end from my beginning
  • Smoky blue clouds that provide the backdrop for a fiery sunset
  • Peanut M&Ms. Which I can resist.
  • Compassion's presentation materials, which bring hope and love to so many
  • Wonderful books from the library
  • Tiny birds nests, beautifully constructed from slender twigs
  • A love of learning inherited from my dad
  • Fleeting frost, soundlessly transforming the world and leaving unnoticed
  • Soft jeans that hug your curves just right
  • The ghostly beam of searchlights sweeping over a low cloudy sky

  • Friends who will listen and understand.
  • Friends who will wipe away worry with laughter and fun.
  • Friends who encourage and strengthen and inspire.
  • "Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da" on the treadmill
  • Mom's whispered encouragements 
  • Afternoon sun dripping gold all over the fields
