To Find JESUS is to Find LIFE!
To find Jesus is to find LIFE....not Eternal Life only, but life here and now.... to find meaning and True Values because He adds new substance and a new dimension to living here and now on this Earth....you have a new sense of purpose to fill your days and a destiny where you'll be on the consummation of them - an experience that is anticipated with delight and gladness of heart. For now, there is peace of mind from the Prince of Peace and a Joy that does not rely on ideal and happy circumstances....your emotions become more settled and anchored...more confidence in your steps and decisions - when you welcome His Presence daily. And life with Jesus is like a garden you tend to and look forward to being in every day....like my new garden on my front verandah with pretty plants in pots and herbs in small raised beds....and the view of nice landscaped Native Australian shrubs in the background. I like to visit my plants 1st thing of the day and later in the evening....That's what it's like with Jesus....it's a relationship we cultivate and treasure each day, like any meaningful relationship we have....so it stays fresh. And Jesus is not a religion to be endured but a personal relationship to be ENJOYED!

Life Poem - One's Day.
Did you know that starting the day on a positive note
makes a difference to your day?
Especially within 10 minutes of waking
try it__ that's what I say.
Did you know that the words you speak
are like a rudder of a ship
they can weigh you down immensely
or give your spirit a lift?
Did you know there's something about a laugh
of it's benefits we can play a part
It can reduce your stress levels
and even strengthen your heart?
A simple song and melody
can fill your heart with glee
Melodic Notes and words you wrote
were such a blessing to me.
A word in prayer to Him whose there
a word of thanks and praise__
is comforting and uplifting
adding substance to your day.
Have faith in yourself, have faith in God
together, they are a Measuring Rod
on this Earthly sod.
Act in faith and live with faith__
simple trust is what I must
and see what they do for me.
I will not contend for my will and my way
but take an interest in others
treating them like they're my sisters and brothers
and God will take care of me.
For these are the ways that make for Peace
and in my spirit sweet release
I am Blessed and my heart is at Rest
the essence of LIFE to me.
If I would choose Life
to Love and be loved
His pleasure I will see__
for His River flows
through the Law of Love
and is such a Blessing for me.
Yes, try these things
and you will find
they bring you Peace of Mind
hours spent without relent
and Happiness to your day!

A Favorite Bible Verse that Inspires Me!
Phil 4:8 is my favorite verse: "Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise think about these things." Because that is the best pattern for thinking....it speaks about having a Christ awareness .....appreciation of nature... the qualities and giftings in others.....it speaks of renewing your mind consistently.....loving His Words of Life..... having right attitudes and healthy thoughts and company.....being creative .......having a desire for progress.

This is our God
This is our God, come and worship Him
He will make you to win, set you free from sin.
Precious in His sight is the soul that takes flight
from things that hinder, they no longer linger.
No longer I roam, for I’ve found my home
in the Father’s Heart, no longer to part.
He shows me His ways, I love to stay
in His presence, I’ve found the essence
of all that I searched for, He opened the door
to Joy, Peace and Love on wings of a Dove.
Yes He is mine, His Grace is Divine
undeserved and this I have learned
You cannot repay, just worship and say
I love You my Lord Forevermore!
