I’ve been thinking…







To meditate on God’s works and His Word requires more then a hurried or casual glance.

The word "meditation" in Hebrew means to speak or to mutter.

As we focus on all the wonderful things God has done for us, and share them with others, our faith is strengthened.

The more time we spend in the Word; the deeper our appreciation will be for all that God has done. 

Take time today to consider His mighty deeds!


Please join us over at the Cafe for more WFW!!!

Never knew this: The word "meditation" in Hebrew means to speak or to mutter.

It is not enough just to think on His word but we need to speak it, as well...

Handsome young man in the photo!

Your blog is so pretty and your children are adorable. I love WFW. Thanks for stopping by Gail-Friends today. Yes, I do Messianic dancing, but for the last year, I've been suffering pain that prevents my dancing. I love to see others do it and the video just always makes my heart sing!

Yesterday morning was the first morning in several months when I was alone in my house. I curled up on the couch and opened up my Bible to Matthew 1... rereading the account of Christ's arrival on this earth. In particular, one phrase kept gnawing its way into my mind and heart:

"... because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit." (vs. 20).

Over and over again, I let that thought fall on me. It permeated my flesh and made its way into my heart; I couldn't help but think about "He who is conceived in me is from the Holy Spirit."

What a birthing! I imagine there might be a post to follow at some point, but the thought so comforts me in this season... to know that the King of all creation has delightedly decided upon putting his Spirit in me.

That's what I think about when I read your post here... about meditating on a single thought and, then, owning it!

Thanks for your prayers for Miss Amelia. We felt them every one!

I found you on someone else's blog and linked through. Love the pics of your cute grandkids!

How we need to 'meditate,' not just read! God's Word. Amen.
