Angels and Such

pennies from heavenIn 1998, I wrote a poem, Pennies From Heaven, about how angels toss pennies down from heaven to cheer us up, or just to show us they’re thinking of us. Of course, it’s not real. Or is it?

Maybe angels don’t put pennies in our path, but I think it’s okay to imagine they do. If something—anything—gives us hope and encourages us to keep going in a tough time, then perhaps it’s God’s way of giving us the nudge we need to get through the storms we find ourselves in. Or, even when things are okay, maybe it’s just a little something to strengthen our faith and remind us He’s there.

 

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7

Pennies from Heaven

 

 I found a penny today

Just laying on the ground

But it’s not just a penny

This little coin I’ve found

.

Found pennies come from heaven

That’s what my Grandpa told me

He said, “Angels toss them down”

Oh, how I loved that story

 .

He said when an angel misses you

They toss a penny down

Sometimes just to cheer you up

To make a smile out of a frown

 .

So don’t pass by that penny

When you’re feeling blue

It may be a Penny from Heaven

That an Angel’s tossed to you

Be Cool

Doesn’t it feel awesome on a hot summer day when a cloud drifts in front of the sun and tempers its blazing heat? Likewise, when we are in the heat of our daily battles, the shadow of God’s love is a wonderfully refreshing thing. But the greater thing is, we don’t have to wait for God’s shadow to pass over us; we can slip into the shade of it anytime we want. In fact, we can dwell there constantly.

The Same Thing Only Different

There are times—one moment to the next—where something can look different. Maybe it’s the way the light hits it. A table top looks clean, then the sun peeks through a window, revealing old stains and a light layer of dust.

I sometimes wonder how we must look when God’s light shines on us. Read the rest of this entry »

You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet!

crepes 1 Aug 2016 quoteSometimes we anticipate an event and when it finally arrives, it isn’t as exciting and wonderful as we thought it would be. We’ve all been there and done that when it comes to things not living up to the hype, but to see God… Wow! To have God smile and say, “Welcome home. I love you so much!” The thought fills me with inexpressible and glorious joy! Read the rest of this entry »

Got a Minute?

I believe loving God leads to eternal life with Him, but I also believe loving Him is the key to happiness. I also believe when we make loving God our first priority we unlock a treasure chest of knowledge and understanding that is full of wonders. Read the rest of this entry »

The Wonderful Circle of Love

We did not earn reconciliation; it’s a gift from God through Jesus, and all we did was receive His gift. This is one of the most important principles of Christianity; we cannot earn our salvation, but need merely accept it. We cannot do our way into God’s grace.

We must merely thank God, seek Him, receive His love, and watch as our love for Him grows with every new revelation He presents to us. And all the while, we should remain joyful and at peace as we seek God. The amazing thing is, the more we seek Him, the more peace and joy He gives to us.

It’s a wonderful circle of love; lake 7-30-2016 quote

Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. Romans 5:11

He’ll Come Around

When I was very young I knew nothing of God, but then I was taken to Sunday school and church. When I was ten years old I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior and began to learn about Him and God. Then, as I got older, God and Jesus became less important to me, I stopped going to church and slipped easily into a life of sin. I was, though I didn’t realize it, God’s enemy.
