Winter Sun


This is a re-post, but still gives encourages me....hope it will you.


I sat early morning meditating, praying, thinking on His majesty. Just then a brilliant beam of gold glow shone through the window over the top of the loveseat where I was sitting and targeted my eyes. I turned to the source to see the sun beaming horizontally toward me from over the crest of the mountains. It was as though He was saying, "Just as My eye is on the sparrow-understand, I SEE you." My prayers presently seemed to travel directly to the throne room. And yet not need to travel at all because He is here.

After writing this I look again outside. The golden glow is rising, now softening its brilliance to meld into the now lightened blue sky. These are the only colors of this wintry palette except for my husband's vintage red Ford truck, adding to the poetry of the scene. The trees, bushes, and houses are all a monochrome color of dark umbers. Everything is coated with fresh white, powdery snow which arrived for a visit last night. The sun beams reflect in a snowflake here and there like shiny crystals in a beach of sand.

It is calm.

It is peaceful.

The silent song resonates to my soul, "I am here watching over you." I eat of this spiritual manna.

I am full and content.
I am ready for this day.

NEW Year


Happy NEW Year to you!
I pray that the coming months will hold Peace and Health for us all-
May the Lord make His face shine upon us.

     I have spent the last year and final half studying English, History, and Women's Studies at Penn State University.  In May 2013, I expect to finish, having earned a baccalaureate degree in Letters, Arts, and Sciences.  This will be the culmination of a four year degree earned in two.  So I think that you may understand my online absences.  (Though I have so wanted to share many of the things that I have been learning with you and open the  subjects up for discussion.)

     Besides these studies, I supervise three of my children studying at home, do bookkeeping for our business, and still endeavor to make our house a Home-a lovely place of comfort, filled with delicious smells of baked goods (the aroma of which comes often from a candle). I say all this, to remark that I do not want to neglect writing for long periods (again), but when I do write, the posts will probably be sporadic disclosures of thought rather than a planned series like I have wanted to do.  So, please bear with me, grab of mug of steaming tea and enjoy the LOV posts this year.  I am not sure what words will be weaved as the tapestry of 2013 unfolds, but I would like you to be part of it.
 
 
     Let's encourage one another and stir up good works that we might be Ladies of Virtue.
