Dear God, when storms beat around me, help me to rise above my circumstances and give you praise. Amen.
“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.” Psalm 24:1-2
Thank you for beautiful earth. What an incredible gift you left us! Help me today, and everyday, to care for it with tender loving care.
Happy Earth Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!
Today I wrote a Mother’s Day Prayer with my mom in mind, but also to share with mothers everywhere. Mom, if you’re reading this, after the prayer is also a special image and quote written just for you! 💕
Thank you for my beautiful mom, who has loved and cared for me all my life with selfless abandon and unconditional love. On this important day (“Mother’s Day”) I specially want to lift her up, as well as all mothers around the world, and thank you for the unique role they play in the lives of their children.
Thank you for the encouragement, wisdom, and counsel they offer us, and the many sacrifices they willingly make for us. Thank you for their sweet smile, and for every hug and kiss and helping hand!
Today, I ask a special blessing on my mom, and on all the mothers throughout the world, that they would know how much they are loved and appreciated. Continue to bless them each and every day with Godly wisdom, strength, peace, and courage, and with the joy of your constant presence! Multiply your grace to them as they strive to carry out their many responsibilities and roles. And in all they do, help them never to forget to care for themselves. For they are deeply cherished and loved!
I pray this in Jesus name,
Thanking God for Easter and for the joy of living with great expectation and hope in my heart . . .
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for giving us NEW BIRTH into a LIVING HOPE, through the RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST, and for an INHERITANCE that can never spoil or fade, kept for us in heaven. Now we can live with GREAT EXPECTATION and HOPE in our hearts!
“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised him from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance — and inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay.” 1 Peter 1:3-4
