Let My Words Be Few...HoneyHoney

Good Thursday Morning!

<< This photo here is linked to Thursday’s page with the rules, if you can call them rules…go and take a look. I hope you join us!

First let me apologize that this post is kinda late, in the latter parts of the morning. I was up all night with my Dachshund Honey…
       She is about to have pups…and it is now morning and the Dachshunds Mid-wife is weary and excited…

Honey

My post today was going to be on new life…the kind God‘s provides when we choose to believe…
          In His Son, Christ Jesus…I have these awesome pictures of my Wisteria adorning a ancient and near dead tree in my back yard.
I was struck this week by how God took this skeleton of a tree…very little greenage, except for at the very top, and made it alive with vibrant color and beauty for spring.

God gives us NEW LIFE when we choose to believe in Christ Jesus.

ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you–rise to a new life Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! Isaiah 60:1 

New Life

Like my near death tree…God gives to  us…

comfort for all who mourn and provides for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty 
instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.  ~Isaiah 61:2-4

God definitely displayed His Splendor in this photo…

God is good…

So share with us, if you’d like, what new life has God shown you this week?

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.

  1. I was going to do a post about my daughter’s chorus concert but the video my husband took on his phone is not working, so I will have to save that for later and improvise.
    I think my husband would say that I have new life in me this week. I have endometriosis and every day is different. Sometimes, my whole body aches, sometimes I get cluster headaches. If you have read any of my posts on the sleep lab you know that I have been having trouble with my sleep. The sleep lab said that I am not getting into a deep sleep and only having 1-2 REM cycles a night, when I should be having more. In other words, I have been in a light sleep at night. The technician who worked with me at the lab started wondering if the antidepressants I was taking was interrupting my sleep. I asked my psychiatrist and lo and behold, the Wellbutrin I am on is interfering with my sleep cycle and has cut down my REM stages.
    My neurologist, who ordered the sleep lab has put me on Melatonin and it seems to be working kind of well. For the first time in months, Monday and Tuesday I was up and doing stuff around the house and I cooked dinner before my husband, Terry got home. He was pleasantly surprised. He told me that he had been wondering where his wife was for the past several months and he feels like he is getting me back now. I did have a bad day yesterday and started getting a headache last night but managed to get ride of it today.
    I do sort of feel like I have had new life breathed into me.
    So, what sort of new life have you experienced this week? Feel free to send me your “new life” post and thanks for taking the time to read this (if you did;if you didn’t, I don’t blame you).

  2. Hope all is going well with the dog and puppies. By the way, that tree is beautiful!

  3. Most went well. We did lose one pup, 26 hours later, but the other 5 are robust and happy!

    Thank you…it is beautiful isn’t it!

    Blessings,
    Andrea
