July 28, Today’s thought — Whispered Wonderings

Flowers at Grandma’s house;
I don’t know the names.

Good Morning

Behold, a virgin shall be with child,
and shall bring forth a son,
and they shall call his name Emmanuel,
which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:23

The white space between Bible verses is fertile soil for questions. One can hardly read Scripture with whispering, “I wonder. . . ”

“I wonder if Eve ever ate any more fruit.”
“I wonder if Noah slept well during storms” . . .

But in our wonderings, there is one question we never need to ask. Does God Care?
Do we matter to God?
Does he still love his children?
Through the small face of the stable-born baby,
he say yes
Yes, your sins are forgiven.
Yes, your name is written in heave. . .
And yes, God has entered your world.
Immanuel. God is with us.

He still Moves Stones – Max Lucado

Trust God with your day. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

If I knew I could, I would

This is Friday, I attempt to write on the topic the Gypsy Mama chooses. I am always surprised at what comes out of my fingers.
Join me if you dare

Go

If I knew I could I would TRAVEL!

a driving trip to Alaska

and across Canada

over to PE Island

down through the New England states

follow east coast south and then west.

I would observe and see and look and learn.

I would live in Washington State and North Carolina.

I would observe………

I feel narrow and limited……by my owns fears

I would lift the top off the box; slip out; peer around and SMILE!
You know what, my hands are raised,
I’m starting to push…and…
LOOK
there is a glimmer of light
just a small crack
but it is there
I CAN, IF I WOULD……..

Stop…..breath, it always seems like I’m holding my breath, when the words start coming fast.
