"Inspirations"

These "inspirations"  have come as a result of my Lord's gentle teaching over the years and I am honored to share them with you. I pray that they may be a vessel through which God can touch your heart with a special blessing as you read and reflect prayerfully upon them.

May God be Glorified!

THE GIFT OF APPRECIATION

THE GIFT OF APPRECIATION
            THE ART OF APPRECIATION
 

Before you may receive I must give ~
and I give because I have received from you
the graciousness that comes from deep within your heart.

Who can you call friend but he who does not walk away in your time of need?
I can call you friend.

God promises an angel to watch over me and protect me even in my deepest sleep.
My angel dwells within this place, I believe he dwells inside of you.

You took me into your house and gave me a place to lay my head.
It is no longer just a house but a home to me.

For you and others like you God is saving up His crown jewels.
For those with hearts of gold like yours only the richest treasures in Heaven will do.

Through all of your love and charity I am learning the art of appreciation and I offer here my gift of appreciation ~
a gift only received from those by whom you are appreciated.

I cannot say I couldn't do it without you for *"I can do all things through Him who strengthens me", but the joy I've found in doing it with you cannot be measured by the world and its ways.

God bless you, and be in peace.
