my favourite things/ His Word in my heart

You experienced it all firsthand. 
With each of you we were like a father with his child, 
holding your hand, whispering encouragement, showing you step-by-step how to live well before God, who called us into his own kingdom, into this delightful life. 
                                                 1 Thessalonians 2:11,12                                                                


                                           
my wonderful man and hounds

 He loves me
 so do we... they say
Early in the morning will I praise Thee
 marvelous are the works of Your hand O Lord
 and that my soul knoweth right well
 Saphira and Sam keeping the guard
 Blue dog herding me
 shelter out of the snow
 leaning on the Everlasting Arms
 'snowball' fight did someone say... I have mine with me
 can't see a thing
 can you fathom the workings of His hand
 if it is too hard for me... yet will I always praise His name
 early in the morning will I seek Thee
 in the evening You will still be found
 if I hide~ in the hen-house... You will still find me
 I love Your presence O Lord
 You blow with Your wind and the ice melts
 You give shelter
 some trust in horses... some in chariots
 though I give Rudy hugs... I will trust in You O Lord
how could I ever say, where can I flee from Your presence?
my soul cries out for You
 You give the birds shelter
You give the forest sleep
 Your Word is a Light in the midst of a storm
 you give food
 We give thanks
 Your Spirit moves upon the water
I listen for Your voice
 You sent out the doves... Your eye is on the sparrow
 a joyful heart is good medicine
You give friendship
 fellowship
 forsake not the gathering together
with God, you are never alone
 you may feel small and incidental...but God sees you
 Spring will come
 His mercies come as we wait patiently for them
 He will be your hiding place
 He will be Living Water
 give Him your burdens
seek Him
 You will find Him... when you seek for Him with all your heart
 He will bring peace to your souls
 His love will cover a multitude of sins
 He watches for you to come Home
 He waits for you
 He longs for you
 though storms may come
 He will always be your shelter
your Refuge
 His tender mercies
 are new every morning
 Great is His faithfulness
 His lovingkindness ever present
 as far as the east
 is from the west
 He covers... He heals
 He is the Light that lighteneth every man
 He casts away every shadow
 He will lead you in the path everlasting
 new life in Him
peace in Him
  a conscience clear in Him
burdens carried in Him
  sin covered in Him
Heaven's gate opened in Him
joy
 and fellowship evermore
 come all ye that are heavy laden
 come all ye that are searching
 you that are tired
 you that have been waiting
 come
 come
 Jesus said, In my Father's house there are many rooms
 I go to prepare a place for you
 that where I am
 there you may be also
 no more sorrow
 no more pain
 no more tears
 I stand at the door and knock
 if anyone hear My voice and open the door
 I will come in to him and sup with him and he with Me
for those who look for Me
with all their heart
 really look for Me
 really and truly
I will be found ...

  3. Wow! Haven't seen such beauty in a while. Thank you so much for taking the time to put the Scripture with the pictures. It's absolutely impressive! And your dogs are so photogenic. I'm going to share this, and I'll be back again. I don't even know how I found you. I think your comment on Cristal's blog. Thanks for pointing me to God. I need lots of reminders. Joyce
