Watching Over Me

I caught you watching over me
As I ran through today.
You kept me safe on icy roads
When I got under way.
You helped me think, before I spoke,
To keep Your words in mind.
I’m fairly certain You were there
When peace was hard to find.
I’ve heard it said that You keep guard
On Your children, with love,
But after today, I’ve no doubt
You watched me from above.

Praise Memes

Looking Up

I’ve always had a thing for trees,
I don’t know why I do,
Except as they grow from the earth
Into a sky of blue
They lead me to turn my gaze up
To heaven and to You.
I know it’s just a little thing
And maybe silly, too,
But I can’t help look up with awe,
It’s just something I do.
For when my eyes climb through their boughs
I catch a glimpse of You.  


My dear friend, who is vastly talented and very faith filled, has started making these memes for my Facebook page. It has occurred to me that many of you don't follow us on Facebook, so I want to post them here, too. Thus, here are a few to start with and I'll post more over the next few days and then continue to post them as she creates more of them. Many of the photos used in the memes are mine, but many are hers as well. Some even come from others who have been kind enough to bless us with permission to use them. My thanks to TAF for all her hard work to create these and to everyone who has been kind enough to share their photos with us. Please fell free, as usual, to copy or share these as you feel so moved. If you want to follow us on Facebook we are at

Beneath the Snow

The mountain stands sheathed in cold ice,
Yet deep beneath the snow
The fires of its molten core
Bubble unseen below.
It seems too still, almost serene,
To hide such fire within,
But that is often how it is
With mountains, and with men.
We all hold secrets in our hearts
That no one else can see,
Secrets of loss, of fear, of shame,
Of painful memory.
Walk gently then, with those you meet,
For you may never know
What burns at them from deep within,
Beneath the outer snow.
Ephesians 4:32
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

The Servant's Journey

A journey lies ahead of me,
To where, I don’t yet know,
But since You’ve called, and I am Yours,
I’ll stand up and I’ll go.
The world is large and I am small,
But this thing I will do,
Where ever You are bound, Oh Lord,
There I will follow You.
I’m frightened sometimes at the thought
Of what I’ll face ahead,
But when I feel most overwhelmed
I think of You instead.
For if You walk that path, then I
Will travel at Your side
And this great earth will never be
Too big, too far, too wide.
John 12:26
Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
