Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
The Conquering Prince
The ancient Mystery
eternal – without start or end
a Triune of Love
our God – our Savior – our Friend
The only Creator
who simply spoke to form the starry host
a holy Trinity
the Father – the Son – the Holy Ghost
The only Redeemer
whose shed blood our salvation has won
the spotless Lamb
Alpha – Omega – God’s only Son
The conquering Prince
who shall return on lightning steed
the risen One
who claims for bride – all who have believed.
As Christmas approaches,
may we ponder, as Mary did,
on the things that we’ve been told
about our Messiah and soon returning King.
Happy Thanksgiving to my dear American friends!

In his heart a man plans his course,
but the Lord determines his steps.
Many are the plans in a man’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
Seal of Approval
Plans we may make
details of dreams drawn
but unless they’re stamped
with Your seal, Lord
all is wasted and gone
Hopes we may have
longings that linger lucid
but unless they’re lifted
before You, Lord
all is lost and fruitless
Freewill may be ours
choices within each mind
but unless we’re submitted
to You, Lord
no peace will we find.
Wow, I cannot believe how many detours
my life has taken from the road map
I had drawn out so many years ago.
And as I look back,
much of them make sense
to my very limited mind.
God sees what’s ahead
in the fabric of our lives
He knows the thread count

When Simon Peter saw this,
he fell at Jesus’ knees and said,
“Go away from me, Lord;
I am a sinful man!”
My Healing Wine
The more days that pass
The more aware I am
of my crimes of shame
nailed into your hands
Though I’ve grown in You
by your holy grace
So much more I need
as I seek your face
Your pure Light reveals
and exposes my greed
all my sinful thoughts
and any false beliefs
From your open side
poured out love Divine
Mercy’s cleansing flood
and my healing wine.
One Sunday, years ago, a godly, elderly lady stood up in church to share with us how ashamed she was
for some critical thoughts she had had toward a young mother with an unruly child.
She had repented, inwardly, on the spot
and chose to bless the mother instead; she read to the child.
I was deeply impressed with how humble
and how teachable this lovely lady was.
The depth of her remorse over her own sin
was a sermon for all of us that Sunday.
Woe to me!” I cried.
“I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips,
and I live among a people of unclean lips,
and my eyes have seen the King,
the Lord Almighty.”

I call on you, O God, for you will answer me;
give ear to me and hear my prayer.
Show the wonder of your great love,
you who save by your right hand
those who take refuge in you from their foes.
Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings
I Call on You
When my heart beats
a rhythm of fear
I pray that your Spirit
would draw me near
For your Love sings faith
your touch gives hope
leading me to help
so I may cope
For to suffer alone
is no path to Light
I need call on You
in the dark of my night.
This week I am feeling thankful for a praying husband.
What are you thankful for?
Apple of His Eye Blessings ~ Wendy
