WINGS OF THE DAWN

   "If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast."    Psalm 139:9-10
     This is a beautiful verse out of Psalms that paints a picture for us we can remember when going through uncertain times.

DO NOT FEAR

        The little Jerusalem Donkey obeys his momma----'sort-of'----when she commands him to leave the area when the photographer arrives.
          "For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you."  -- Isaiah 41:13
            Hope the scripture brought comfort--and the photo a smile.  :)   Let me hear your thoughts.

HELLO!

"Quietly contemplate the Lamb as the LIGHT of heaven.  Light in Scripture is the emblem of JOY."  (Spurgeon)  
As we are expecting sleet, ice and snow---I will choose to look through some of my photos when it was light, bright and warm outside.  If you have never researched the Sunflower, I would challenge you to do so---and think about the complex design in one of our most SPOTLIGHT flowers.   It is like God is waving HELLO---!

FLOWER OF HEAVEN

©2011-2012 by Nava -all rights reserved

                  "Now CONTENTMENT is on of the flowers of heaven, and, if we would have it, it must be cultivated.  It will not grow in us by nature; it is the new nature alone that can produce it----" (by Surgeon)            
                     I love the thought that contentment is a FLOWER of heaven----I like to think of my spiritual garden---and how it has to be 'weeded'---and cultivated.   It gives me an earthly way to think of what has to be done in an everyday way.    We all need that quiet place to go---to reflect---to pray--and read scripture to see what He has to say to us for that day.  
            
                     Would love to hear your thoughts------

HE CARES FOR YOU---

                  "Cast all you anxiety on him because he cares for you."  1 Peter 5:7

      "------He who feeds sparrows will also furnish you with what you need.  Don't sit down in despair, but hope on, hope ever.   Take up the arms of faith against a sea of trouble----"  (Spurgeon)

LIGHT UP LAMPS OF PAST

©2011-2012 by Nava -all rights reserved
I love reading Spurgeon from the 1800s--before so many distractions---and yet human nature is about the same--and his writing is for today. 
He says:  "----though all may be dark now, LIGHT up the lamps of the past, they shall glitter through the darkness, and you shall trust in the Lord until the day breaks and the shadows flee away.---"
One of my LAMP stories:      Years ago--my 16 year old son and I were on a slick 1604 in  San Antonio, TX.  The car spun out of control in rush hour with him at the wheel and drivers permit in his pocket.  We were in a flash heading off a steep hill---traffic--18 wheelers had stopped---and my son said "LORD HELP US'---and that car did a supernatural thing--and we were saved.   I felt the peace in the center of that car when he cried out for help.  We were going off--and it is impossible to explain here just what did happen after he asked for help---but it did happen.  I am thankful and happy for that  LAMP that glitters ever so brightly!  Thank you Lord!
