Canada Goose & Kildeer Plover (F) - 04182013 - MT -101_0057
My focus was to photograph the Canada Goose quietly resting in the mid-afternoon sun. It was after
downloading the photo, I noticed the tiny Killdeer Plover, standing almost in front of the Goose. Its presence added much more meaning to picture than I had expected.
Often in our day, a tiny bit of support, encouragement or Christ like love extended to those around us could
add much more meaning to their life picture than we,
or they are expecting.
Heavenly Father, to be a source of unexpected meaning to
lives around us, we are grateful, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Beauty In The Shadows

It glided quietly through the shadows of approaching sunset,
and perched in the overhead branches, almost unseen in
the twilight. But, nothing could conceal its beauty.
Today’s busyness: appointments, schedule changes,
quick decisions, traffic backups, overseeing projects, technology
malfunctions, may have the possibility to conceal the beauty
placed by the Great Creator in us, and around us. May our
prayer be …
Heavenly Father, in the midst of the busyness of
today, let nothing close our eyes to Your beauty,
in Jesus’ name, Amen


The greatest symbol of love the world will ever see.
The greatest demonstration of love the world will ever need.
The greatest commitment of love you or I will ever make.
The greatest gift of love you or I will ever share.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Heavenly Father, during this season of love, we are reminded
of Your great love, and for it, we are truly grateful, in Jesus’
name, Amen.

The following may pose a serious threat when moving into 2017:
Fear … Doubt … Unforgiveness.
These have been known for their destructive effects on victorious living. It is highly recommended to avoid at all cost if planning to experience a successful and productive New Year. Immediate information about how to evade any of the above safely and quickly, is referenced in pages of The Abundant Life Enrichment Manual ~ The Holy Scriptures. Further support may also be obtained by connecting with a Bible believing church. 
May you experience New Year – life more abundantly.
In Jesus name,
