Rose Drops

1Kings 8:27 “But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain You.
What on earth does this picture have to do with Infinity? This morning, I was contemplating the awesome infinite beauty of the Creator of all we have surrounding us. I look at these drops of water and think of how incredible water is and that we ourselves are made up of some 70 some odd percent water. The earth is covered with it and there is probably more intelligence in just one drop of it than we can begin to fathom.


Then I look at this fruit that just grows of itself on a tree and one can just pick it off the tree and eat it. Have we ever noticed that it is pre-wrapped, and pre-sliced? I mean, how awesome is that? I am continually overwhelmed by this Creator God who wants a relationship with such as me.
And to top that off, He has chosen a few people to write a book of instructions at His dictation on how to get along with each other and how to get into that other Kingdom which He has designed that out surpasses this one. He has also given instructions on how to heal oneself when things go wrong. I just had a cancerous lump appear on my arm about two months ago. I had it biopsied by a surgeon to find out what it was. It came to be about the size of a lemon just above my elbow. Through the instruction book, it says to speak to it and cast it away. Thus for about a week, feeling a tiny bit silly, I spoke to this lump that it did not belong to me and that it should just shrivel up and die and that is exactly what it did, all I have left is the soft scab that it left behind and I am in the process of just telling that to fall off and get out of my life.
We have an awesome Creator God who wants us to live with Him in His Kingdom and treat us as His Children and He is a Loving Kind Father who wants nothing but the best for every one of His children. I’m looking forward to an exciting new adventure in His Home.

“Night Sky”

Starry, Starry Night

Night Sky Petunia

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.                                                    Psalm 19:1-4


Covenants - Old and New

Isaiah 6:10   “Make the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and return and be healed.”

Isaiah 29:13   Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, but have removed their hearts far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,

Hebrews 4:12   For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Jeremiah 31:31-33   “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah—not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
