Autumn/ my favourite things


her name was fresh
on the morning dew

we saw her
coming ...
in our hurry
to be gone

but for her
the morning
was lazy

so we waited

in God's time
she showed herself
wiggling with joyous anticipation
for the warmth
of her mother's milk
for the exhilaration
of stretching out her long legs

a gentle beauty
like laced frost in the early mornings
of golden leaves
against blue skies

she arrived

while in the womb
God knew her
in the secret place
He formed her

five months
we waited
through the long
hot summer
we dreamed

and now
at summer's end

she came

we held her
loved her


in her quiet beauty

Bethany called her...


my favourite things

the things that "Wow!" me

Through my 'favourite things', I will share the little things that happen through each day that "wow' me and remind me that we have a Great God, who loves us, and who calls us His children. And this is the love of the Father, that He loved us... and called us His children.
I have been twice ransomed/ redeemed/ adopted... first into a forever family who gave their lives for me and second into the family of God, by the finished work of Jesus on the cross, who died to take away my sins, rose, and has gone ahead to prepare a place for me and for all those who call on His Name. He has not left me comfortless, but has left His Holy Spirit to lead me into all truth, to correct and instruct me, to heal and comfort me, to give me abundant joy and His peace. My faith is a gift from Him and my prayer for you is that you will find him Faithful and also put your trust in Him...Jesus said, "You believe in God, believe also in Me."
He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the same Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow. He will Always be there for you! Trust Him! I know you will be blessed <3
