Bulow Creek, Flagler Beach - "In Wisdom You have Made Them All"



 O LORD, how manifold are Your works!
In wisdom You have made them all.
The earth is full of Your possessions--
This great and wide sea,
In which are innumerable teeming things,
Living things both small and great.

Psalm 104:24-25 NIV

Bulow Plantation ruins Historic State Park - "One Day is as a Thousand Years"




 But, beloved, do not forget
this one thing, that with the Lord
one day is as a thousand years,
and a thousand years as one day.

The Lord is not slack concerning
His promise, as some count 
slackness, but is longsuffering
toward us, not willing
that any should perish but that
all should come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:8-9 NIV

Creekview Trail, Princess Place Preserve - "You have made Summer and Winter"


 



You broke open the fountain and the flood; 
You dried up mighty rivers.
The day is Yours, the night also is Yours;
You have prepared the light and the sun,
You have set all the borders of the earth;
You have made summer and winter.

Psalm 74:15-17 NIV

Hominy Branch Trail, Princess Place Preserve - "In the Shadow of the Almighty"


 He who dwells 
in the shelter of the
Most High
will rest in the shadow
of the Almighty.

Psalm 91:1

Covered Bridge, Princess Place Preserve - "All Play a Part"


 Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we... have different gifts according to the grace given to each of us.

Thought for the Day:  Each person has a part to play in serving God.

Princess Place Preserve, Oak Trail - "A Grateful Heart"


I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

Psalm 9:1 NRSV

 Thought for the Day:  What a difference gratitude to God can make!

"Peace I Leave with You"


 "But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in  my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."

John 14:26-27 NIV

"Do Not Let Your Hearts Be Troubled"

 


"Do not let your hearts be troubled.  You believe in God, believe also in me.  My Father's House has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.  You know the way to the place where I am going."

John 14:1-4 NIV

The Greatest Discovery

 

"The greatest discovery we will ever make is to know the love of God, which was fully demonstrated by His Son's sacrifice on the cross for us.  This is the power that transforms man's myth into Christ's truth.  Jesus did not die on the cross for people's sin so that we would believe in Heaven--but that we would believe in HIM.  Heaven does not save souls...it collects them."

Billy Graham -"The Heaven Answer Book"

Jesus replied, "Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching.  My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.

John 14:23 NIV

To A Butterfly


 To A Butterfly

I've watched you now a full half hour
Self-poised upon that yellow flower,
And, little Butterfly! indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless!-not frozen seas
More motionless!-and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!

This plot of orchard-ground is ours;
My trees they are, my Sister's flowers;
Here rest your wings when they are weary,
Here lodge as in a sanctuary!
Come often to us, fear no wrong;
Sit near us on the bough!
We'll talk of sunshine and of song,
And summer days, when we were young;
Sweet childish days, that were as long
As twenty days are now.

By William Wordsworth 1807

No Eye has Seen






 However, as it is written, "What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived"-- the things God has prepared for those who love him"--

1 Corinthians 2:9

Faith is tasting the Saltiness of our Tears




Sometimes
faith is building an ark
when there is no rain,
dipping seven times in a muddy river
when you have open wounds,
 or marching in circles
and shouting praises
when your enemy is ready to do battle.

And sometimes
faith is
tasting the sweetness of God
in the saltiness of our tears.

The Winds and Waves Obey Him


A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped.  Jesus was in the stern sleeping on a cushion.  The disciples woke him and said to him, 'Teacher, don't you care if we drown?' 

He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, 'Quiet!  Be Still!'  Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.  He said to his disciples, 'Why are you so afraid?  Do you still have no faith?' 

They were terrified and asked each other, "Who is this?  Even the wind and the waves obey him!"
Mark 4:37-41 NIV

Princess Place Preserve - Letting Go

It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones.

Psalm 127:2

Faith is Believing

 

Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.  It is not enough that a thing be possible for it to be believed.  Quote by Voltaire

For we live by faith, not by sight. 

2 Corinthians 5:7 NIV

Passing through the Rivers



But now, this is what the Lord says--he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel; "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.   When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not burned; the flames will not set you ablaze..."

Isaiah 43:1-2

Thy Word is a Lamp to my feet

 

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Psalms 119:105

In the Woods


 In the woods we return to reason and faith.  The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.

Renewal of Spring


Spring is here and nature has a rebirth and renewal of new growth, bright colors and perfect skies.

 'Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God--what is good and acceptable and perfect.'

Romans 12:2
