His Yoke is easy...

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls." Matthew 11:28-29  "A yoke is a wooden beam normally used between a pair of oxen or other animals to enable them to pull together on a load when working in pairs." -Wikipedia  As I sat down with a sigh this morning, I felt in my heart the Lord saying "Give me your burdens". At first I was like, "but I really don't have any, I'm tired from working in the yard right now but other than that"...then a light went on...oh yes! I do have burdens. Things that I want to see get better, people with situations that I want to see corrected and solved, things in my life that I want to change but have to wait on the timing of God. I am sure that you could add your own to that list. These things can become "burdens" because we, well in this case &q

A Workout for sure!

Hey Y'all! Listen I want to take a few minutes of your time and just tell y'all something! The month of June!!!!!! Wow! was a DOOSY! what started off as an upstairs bathroom repair ended up having to be a full bathroom renovation and you know what comes with that...lots of workers coming in and out, my dogs barking, loud noises with the demo, THEN after a couple of weeks with that...a mysterious clog was in my that meant more workers coming in and out, dogs barking, lots of water on the kitchen floor, loud noises as they snaked the drain numerous times and after 2 visits they were finally able to unclog the drain...oh! did I mention that while all this was going on I had poison ivy all over the left side of my face, arm and hand...yeah. Is that why some of the workers were looking at me funny when I was trying to explain the problem to them or maybe it was that I was yelling over the barking dogs...must have been a scary sight... through that, only to

The dawning of a new day...

O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land where there is no water. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. Psalms 63: 1-2 There is something about sitting in the quiet of the morning to meditate on God's Word. To me, it seems as if I can "hear" Him better and He can listen to my ramblings and blabberings and yes even my blubbering over things I question, don't understand or just plain need an listening ear. There IS something about witnessing the coming of a new day...its a fresh start, a chance to do and experience something that you have never done before...a blessing for us to partake of. We never know what each new day will bring, but for now as it dawns, we can talk to the One Who DOES know and get assurance to bravely move forward. Father God, I pray for each person reading this, that as their new day begins, give them the tools that they n

Sweet Memories...

My parents have been in their heavenly home for many years now, but there isn't a day that goes by that I do not think of them. This morning was no exception and it is awesome how sometimes the most craziest things can trigger a wonderful memory. The legacy that they left me and my siblings of love, laughter, good work ethics, perseverance and a tough hide; which we received from their example, guidance and at the end of a switch from a tree (you southerners will know what that is) or a leather belt (and no it was not child abuse, our hind parts needed it) LOL .  But while I was munching on some roasted pecans as a snack, a memory came to me of how whenever I went home to visit, my Mom would have sacks of pecans in the shell waiting for us to carry back home. Our precious neighbors had a couple of large pecan trees in their back yard and they would harvest the nuts in the fall when they fell from the trees. My parents would make sure that they harvested enough for all of us. W
