A Sunday Poem-Heart of Love

Heart of Love

Oh heart of Love!

I dimly comprehend

The magnitude-

The breadth, length, depth, and height,

Of love like Thine-

That stoops to me,

And asks of me my love!

My heart is cold-

Oh, teach me how to love

With love like Thine.

Hilda Rovik Lindal

Ephesians 5:2

Live a life of love,

just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us

as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day

Artist- Lee Lufkin Kaula, 1865-1957

 

 

The woman who makes a sweet, beautiful home,

filling it with love and prayer and purity,

is doing something better than anything else

her hands could find to do beneath the skies.

A true mother is one of the holiest secrets

of home happiness.

God sends many beautiful things to this world,

many noble gifts;

but no blessing is richer than that

which He bestows

in a mother who has learned

love’s lessons well,

and has realized something of the meaning

of her sacred calling.

J.R. Miller

Wishing a blessed day to all mothers.

Sunday Song-Teach Me Thy Way, O Lord

Teach Me Thy Way, O Lord

Teach me thy way, O Lord; Teach me Thy way!

Thy guiding grace afford; Teach me Thy way!

Help me to walk aright-More by faith, less by sight.

Lead me with heav’nly light; Teach me Thy way!

*

When I am sad at heart, Teach me Thy way!

When earthly joys depart, Teach me Thy way!

In hours of loneliness, In times of dire distress,

In failure or success, Teach me Thy way!

*

When doubts and fears arise, Teach me Thy way!

When storm o’er-spread the skies, Teach me Thy way!

Shine thro’ the cloud and rain, Thro’ sorrow, toil and pain.

Make Thou my pathway plain; Teach me Thy way!

*

Long as my life shall last, Teach me Thy way!

Wher-e’er my lot be cast, Teach me Thy way!

Until the race is run, Until the journeys’ done,

Until the crown is won, Teach me Thy way!

Words and Music by B. Mansell Ramsey

1919

Psalm 27:11

Teach me your way, O Lord;

lead me in a straight path.

The Lord desires to teach us His ways-The Holy Bible and prayer are the means by which He teaches us.  May we avail ourselves of these means of learning His way.  Only by following God’s way, will we reach our desired destination.

This Sunday and Good-By Winter!

Thoughts for this Sunday

Three Things

There are three things that earthly riches can never do-

They can never satisfy divine justice-

They can never pacify divine wrath-

Nor can they ever quiet a guilty conscience.

And….

Until these things are done-

Man is undone.

Thomas Brooks

Good-By Winter!

I found this lovely blog http://handmadebyamalia.blogspot.co.il/

and she has some cute poems there-

maybe she wrote them?

Here is one-

They’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone

Going out the door

Is old man winter,

Muttering to himself

And feeling quite bitter;

*

“For all my hard work,

The quality weather I bring-

All I hear about me

Is joy to welcome Spring!

*

It makes me want to storm,

It makes me want to rain,

But after a long, hot summer,

See if they don’t want me again!”

*

Blessings on this Lord’s Day!

 Deuteronomy 31:8

The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you:

He will never leave you nor forsake you.
