Humming Bird Perched on Her Nest
“My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the Lord
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the Living God.
Even the sparrow has found a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may have her young–
a place near your altar,
Lord Almighty, my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house
they are ever praising you.” Psalm 84:2-4 NIV
The sparrow, the swallow, and the little humming bird above know the peace and love that are found near the Lord’s dwelling place. Our hearts should also long to dwell close to the richest of gifts found in the presence of our Lord and King. The one true God.

My keyboard clicks out the first few words in my new surroundings and I feel the excitement. Those butterflies swirling around with anticipation of walking out onto a new stage–a new platform.

I’m so happy you have come to visit in my new home Continue reading
“and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.”
Wrapped in snowman throws, hubby and I curled up to watch a 3D version of the movie “Hugo.” Woven into the French tapestry and ambiance was an unexpected New Year’s quote–a theme woven into the fabric of our human DNA. Purpose. We must have purpose.
Little Hugo, part urchin, part heart-tugging waif who keeps the clocks running in the train station utters the key phrase of the movie, “Maybe that’s why a broken machine always makes me a little sad, because it isn’t able to do what it was meant to do… Maybe it’s the same with people. If you lose your purpose… it’s like you’re broken.” Continue reading
Well, here I go for a second time writing this post. Somehow Blogger decided to publish–without my knowledge or even pushing the publish button. Of course at that time, there was nothing on the page!! And then I wrote for two hours…..And. It. Was. All. Gone!
When autumn winds began to blow before the crush of the Christmas panic, I met an incredible writer at a Christian writers conference. And I made a promise. A promise to post a review about her award-winning book. Two months have passed. Life has slowed down. And with the introspection we all do around the New Year, I think this book review is timely.
