SHORT THOUGHTS: I think we all need to remind ourselves often just how much God loves us. Not because He ever stops showing us just how much He loves us but because sometimes in life, we stop looking.
We stop noticing His awesome beauty all around us and all the big and little things He gives and does for us each and every day, just because.
I believe that we find what we look for in this life. If we look for bad, we will surely find it. And if we look for good, we will find it there waiting also. It is all in what we seek.

SHORT THOUGHTS: There are many things in this life that just don't make any sense at all. No matter how hard we try to figure out the "why"...there is just not a reasonable answer that ever surfaces. There are many things happening in the world right now that fit this criteria and that leaves us feeling angry, anxious, afraid and hopeless.

SHORT THOUGHTS: Besides a mutual faith and trust in God, I think the next most important thing is not so much..."finding" the right person as much as it is..."being" the right person.
If our thoughts and desires are to care for our spouse as ourselves, then unless you treat yourself badly, you will treat your spouse with love, honor and respect. You will take care of them and nurture them just like you do your own body.

SHORT THOUGHTS: There are many things that happen in this life that we just will never, ever understand. The hard truth, though we don't like it, is that we don't have to understand everything. With some things...we will just have to learn to trust in the One that knows everything from the beginning to the end. The One that will make all things new and all wrongs right. The One that loves us more than we can ever even comprehend. In that day, when we are there with God, then we will see and understand it all.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: This picture is of me and my world famous dog, Peanut Butter Wood in my prayer closet yesterday morning. PBW insisted to me that she was in fact, praying with me in there.
I don't want to be dogmatic but I have my doubts and think she may have been doing what she does 12+ hours a day...sleeping. Only PBW and God know for sure.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: Last night I discovered something that I had not ever really noticed or thought of before. As luck (maybe good...maybe bad) would have it, I have decided to share this revelation with you now. You are welcome...or...I'm very sorry, in advance. Choose your side after you read on.

JOURNAL: On the way to work today, in the rain, on the freeway about five miles from work, the word, “kittywamus” came into my head. I don’t know how, I don’t know why…maybe it was a direct gift from God and maybe not. You can be the judge after reading more, as this word has sparked a plethora of thoughts in this crazy mind of mine.

SHORT THOUGHTS: Straight from my prayer closet, consider the words of Psalm 24:7-10.
What gates have we refused to open in our lives to God so He can come in and reign? What ancient doors are still locked, bolted and barricaded to keep The King of Glory out and our way in?
Something to consider as we move forward this morning.

SHORT THOUGHTS: I read these words this morning in my prayer time and they were just so true that I had to share them with you all.
To me, if we just open our eyes and our ears, the evidence of God's existence is literally...everywhere. He is in the things that "just happen" like clockwork every single day...the seasons coming and going...the beauty in all creation all around us. He is calling out to us everywhere if we will just open our eyes and our ears and see Him and hear Him.
