yes, I will praise your name for ever and ever” Psalm 145:2 (Amplified).
Fill each space with loving work and therein stay,
Look not through the sheltering bars upon tomorrow,
God will help thee bear what comes, of joy or sorrow.”
Mary Francis Butts

John 1:9 tells us “...that (Jesus) was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.” “That Light states C. Swindoll, was so vital to humanity that Jesus came to earth to declare it and impart it to us.”
As I dwell on this thought I feel that light is like a magnet drawing me closer to the Father. The light energizes me to readily, without question, acknowledge His plan and purpose for my existence. The light seems to usher me into the place in my life where anything fleeting or trivial must be thrust away and darkness dispelled while allowing the Holy Spirit to fill me with His love, and joy, and peace. The Light is revealing God’s truth to my heart and His Word is bringing about the needed change in me. I am thankful for the creator’s unmistakable touch. Winter is now history along with its gloomy and shadowy days and the dayspring has awakened me to a newness of life.
I am fond of the Swallow, I learn from her flight.
She comes in the spring, all the summer she stays, and dreading the cold still follows the sun-So, true to our love, we should covet his rays, and the place where he shines not immediately shun.
Our light should be love, and our nourishment prayer, it is dangerous food that we find upon earth, the fruit of the world is beset with a snare…
To bask every moment in infinite love; Let us fly the dark winter, and follow the road that leads to the dayspring appearing above.
These few verses are from the French poetry of Madame de la Guyon, “The Swallow” translated by William Cowper.
“Hope is like the sun, which as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us." S. Smiles
May a new day dawn in your heart as you embrace springtime and wonder; did the sun shine as bright last year? As a Chameleon changes color on that which he feeds; may we reflect only Christ as we feed on the bounty of His Word, and color those around us by dispersing the kaleidoscope of His love and scattering His brightness thru the prism of His glorious light. How lovely and unforgettable are His radiance and the whispers of spring.
In His love, Judy
