Memorial Day Quote

Monday, May 28, 2012


- Major General Daniel Butterfield
Day is done...
Gone the sun
From the lake...
From the hills...
From the sky.
All is well...
Safely rest
God is nigh.

Fading light....
Dims the sight
And a star....
Gems the sky....
Gleaming bright
From afar....
Drawing nigh

I hope you take a moment to thank those who have served to keep this country's freedoms and pray for those who gave the ultimate gift to their country this Memorial Day.

Five Minute Fridays

Five Minute Friday: Opportunity

Friday, May 25, 2012

Five minutes of writing coming at you!

Gypsy mama has a great plan to just write for 5 minutes and then stop, and change nothing that came out during those five minutes.

Such a great way to end a week and start a weekend - join the fun!

Opportunity, to me, is a chance. A chance to do something, to become something even. And yet all those opportunities that are still in front of me, that I've been working towards, they still seem like they are out of my reach. I feel like there are hours I spend just grasping at the air in vain.

So often I feel like the chance to do something is really just trusting that someone else will let me, or pick me, or help me. Does that mean that opportunity is also a chance to learn to trust more? What do I need to trust more?

Isn't that always coming up? Well maybe for me, not you. The need to trust more. That I can't do it all on my own. My abilities are limited, but if I can have others around me to trust then maybe together we can make it happen. Or better yet, maybe if I focus on trusting on Him everything can change. I mean that is what so many tell us. Trust in Him. Trust in God.

Such an easy thing to say. Such an incredibly hard thing to do. Why? Why is it so hard?

Opportunity a chance to, again, trust more in Him.
