It’s a laid back Florida Sunday
with the sun shining
Blessings to all who gather
if you are still gathering
given that I have not been able to post thoughts recently
I am not so sure that
the thoughts that have found their way through fevers
would be worthy of a read!
I recently read a remarkable posting by
I am still in awe of his brilliance
of his journeys through life.
He is quite a talented man
a man of multi-facets to be certain.
He touches my heart deeply
oh how he can make me laugh
If you haven’t seen him dressed as
you have missed much
with his humor
with his messages along the way!
What a talented and gifted man he is.
I would love nothing more than to sit across a table with him
at some point in life.
He is just one of those people
I would be honored to share a space in time with
I would like to share his message
and his thoughts with you
I am amazed by his heart, his words
has won a piece of my heart!

To all of you that use the cell phone light like I do, I just want to say this. For me, as I was walking through my dark house trying to get to my bedroom, it was truly an exercise in faith. I could only see the light at my feet. I had to trust that even though I could only see three feet in front of me, if I kept following this light, I would get there.
It reminded me of a scripture in the bible, Psalm 119:105 “The word is a lamp unto my feet and a light into my pathway.” Back in those days when people would travel through the night, they would use little lamps that were attached to their feet. The lamp only gave them enough light to see just a few steps in front of them. As long as they kept moving, they could find their way. If they stopped moving, so did the light.
This moved me because this is how I have lived my entire life. I have always walked by faith. Sometimes there was only a little light, a little hope that kept me moving. There were so many times that I didn’t know how I was going to make it. So many times I didn’t know where my next meal was coming from, if my hope would be realized or if my dreams would come true. But no matter how dark it got, I kept moving. That is one of the keys to making your dreams come true. JUST KEEP MOVING FORWARD!
If you’d allow me to, I’d like to challenge you to do more of that this year. Live by faith! No matter what you see happening around you, no matter how dark it may be, follow the lamp at your feet that God provides to us all, no matter who we are. A small step is still a step forward.
At the top of every year, I stop and go away to reflect. I will usually take out my journal and read over some of the past years and look at all the things God brought me through, no matter how dark the times. What rereading my journal taught me is that there was always a lamp at my feet. I think if you look at your life, you’ll see a lamp too. 🙂 If you don’t, look closer. I promise you it’s there!
If you’re struggling in any way, financially, school, business, relationships, children, sickness, heartache, I so believe that God will be a light unto your pathway. IF YOU LET HIM!! Stop looking for the light at the end of the tunnel and look at the light at your feet and you’ll get there.
I hope you remember this every time you use your cell to light a path. God Bless you in 2012! You can make this your best year yet, through faith.
