“Leaning” (a poem)

Image

Scripture reference;

4 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ 7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. Luke 15:4-7 ESV

“Leaning” by Theresa Anne Moore

L aying my cheek upon His Breast I exhaled softly and

E ntered His rest.

A nxious and noxious thoughts that choked me

N o longer held power; no longer provoked me.

I  mpressions were formed deep down inside me;

N uances of love to support and to guide me.

G racefully carried by God.

Scripture Reference;

13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:14-16 KJV

“Pining” by Theresa Anne Moore

P ersistently present

I n a world far away

N oting each moment – not

I ntending to delay

N eeding to circumvent

G reater goals gone astray

Well, I am wondering if I should have inserted punctuation marks. I guess I will leave it as it is.

“The Commandments of Christ” (Introduction)

“…Lately I have had a desire to return to the four gospels and read what Christ’s commandments are…”

Scripture reference;

 If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15

I think I am going to try to blog today. I still have other series that I need to finishmy “Loving Pursuit” series and a couple of others that I started and then abandoned about a year ago. But I have to feel “lead” whenever I write anything.  Recently I have had this verse on my mind:  
 
 If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15
 
Ever since my early teens I have wanted to be an obedient follower of Christ.
At times my heart would cool and the lure of the world would entice me for a season here and there. Yet even then, I had that drawing going on inside meconvicting me, and eventually compelling me to return to the Lord.

Autumnal Tasks

I enjoy her blog so much. She is such a thoughtful and inspiring author.

Cynthia Reyes - Author

Autumn is here, rustling all of the leaves

Soon ’twill be time to take care of the eaves

Last time we didn’t, we paid a big price

The eavestroughs were clogged, a magnet for ice

~~

And speaking of leaves, I’ve had cause to wonder

Why don’t they stay near their trees over yonder?

Why does the wind blow them into our place

Why, when around them is so much free space?

Photo by Hamlin Grange

And speaking of wind, there’s a shutter gone loose

Far up near the roof, nearly high as the spruce

And if it should fall, it may land on our heads

Or just fly away as we sleep in our beds

~~

And speaking of beds, there’s the garden to tend

And errors we really must hasten to mend

Those wild strangling vines and the tough creeping Jenny

You put up with one and you end up with many.

“C” Is For Chrysanthemum

Scripture reference;

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

If you are looking for a cheerful plant chrysanthemums are a great choice. There are so many different kinds. There are tall mums and short mums; single flowered daisy-like mums, and pompom shaped mums. The chrysanthemums that you buy from a florist can be planted in the ground, but usually will not survive the winter.

Most people plant mums, so they can enjoy their blooms in the fall, but they actually bloom in spring/summer. How do you solve this dilemma? You pinch them! Just reach down and pinch off the little flower buds whenever you see them (every 2-4 weeks). Stop pinching them after July 4th. Then you should be…

The Heart’s Longing

Scripture reference;

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:26-27 KJV

 

I just love hymns. I like to sing them at home. This is one I have sung many times at my kitchen sink.

 

“I Am Thine O Lord” by Fanny Crosby

I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.

Refrain

Draw me nearer, nearer blessèd Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died.
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessèd Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.

Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the power of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.

Refrain

O the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend!

Refrain

There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.

Refrain

 

 

A Loving Pursuit: Part 32 ( A Tender Prelude)

“30 And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his brother: and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and wept there.

31 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread…”

Scripture Reference;

14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:14-16 KJV

1 And the famine was sore in the land.

And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn which they had brought out of Egypt, their father said unto them, Go again, buy us a little food.

And Judah spake unto him, saying, The man did solemnly protest unto us, saying…
