Frazzled

Thursday past, I became frazzled. Frazzled, thinking about all that needed to be done. 


24 hours seemed so little time. Somehow, a glimpse of creation always calms me. So I stopped to a favorite spot, and watched this Mute Swan as he drew me into silent conversation… displaying his gracefulness … his beauty … frazzle free …
as he searched for food, unmoved by the activity around him.

 










An hour later, I left calmed, ready to face 24 ~ one moment at a time ~ unfrazzled!
Father, thank you for slowing me down. and showing me how to live each eternal moment frazzle free, In Jesus name, 
Amen!
“"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." ~ Psalm 118:24 (NIV)

A Brand New Day


After returning from taking my niece Lorna to her business, I exited the interstate at 6:01am yesterday, and this sighting was breathtaking. The side street gave me time to capture these two photos and as I did, my heart birthed this prayer:
Father I thank you
for the beauty of a brand new day
another opportunity
to love and to be loved
to forgive and to be forgiven
to speak kind words
to hope
to dream
to expect
to fulfill
the plan that you have for my life
in Jesus' name,
     Amen!
Listen to my voice in the morning, LORD. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly ~ Psalm 5:3 (NIV)
