Five Minute Friday – Green

Joining with Kate at Heading Home
for five minutes of free writing.
“This is meant to be a free write, which means:
no editing, no over-thinking,
no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
Just write.”

This week’s prompt – GREEN


Green lawns
Green fiels
Green pastures – Got it!

Psalm 23:2
I have been reading ‘A Shepherd looks at the 23rd Psalm’
by Phillip Keller. He says sheep cannot rest
if they feel fear, tension, aggravation or hunger.
And it is only the shepherd who is able to do anything about these needs.

In my life
as I trust the Shepherd

for freedom from daily or sudden fears
for freedon from unrest
for freedom from irritations and distrubances
for freedom from soul hunger

(even though the situations may not change)
just knowing HE has

everything under His watchful eye
everything in His times and seasons
everything is working for my good

brings me rest in these peaceful green pastures of His care.
Only He can make me lie down and rest
as I draw near to Him in my unrest.

July 12- Today’s thought -The Jesus Storybook Bible

IMG_1773My Mother and brothers are on my mind today.

Good Morning

God is my Shepherd
And I am his little lamb.

He feeds me
He guides me
He looks after me.
I have everything I need.

Inside, my heart is very quiet.
As quiet as lying still in soft green grass
In a meadow
By a little stream.

Even when I walk through
the dark, scary, lonely place
I won’t be afraid
Because my Shepherd knows where I am.

He is here with me
He keeps me safe
He rescues me

He makes me strong
And brave.

He is getting wonderful things ready for me
Especially for me
Everything I ever dreamed of!

He fills my heart so full of happiness
I can’t hold it all inside.

Wherever I go I know

God’s Never Stopping

Never Giving Up


Always and Forever


Will go, too!~

Sally Lloyd-Jones : The Jesus Storybook Bible

And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:2-3

Be childlike. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

August 6, Today’s thought — Lessons in the Shadows

Sunflower,    He loves me, He loves me not. . .

Good Morning

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Psalm 23:4 KJV

It is a great art to learn to walk through the shadowy places.
Do not hurry; there are lessons to be learned in the shadow that can never be learned in the light.
You will discover something about His ministries you never knew before.
His rod and His staff they will comfort you–
the one to guide, the other to protect you,
and the sheep that are nearest will know the most of both.
When we go into the valley of the shadow of death
we come so near Him that we look into His face and say,
not “He is with me”–that is too formal, too far away–
but “Thou are with me.”
The need and the usefulness of Christ is seen best in trials.
W. Y. Fullerton.

Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley
of the shadow of death,
I will fear or dread no evil,
for You are with me;
Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide],
they comfort me.
Psalm 23:4 Amplified Bible

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