We Have Yet To Understand

gaillovesgodspoetry

Christmas falls like snow in the air
On a sunny and warm day.
Things are as expected,
God will have His way.
He needs no permission of the calendar,
Nor direction from the sun.
He knows how to do mysterious wonders.
He smiles for the fun.
The air turns cold as night arrives,
And He blankets the earth with snow.
He loves the delight in the child’s eye.
He creates a tender glow.
We recognize Your power, Lord.
Our seasons are in Your hand.
For everything we think we know,
We have yet to understand.

October|“What Kind of Pumpkin Are You?” Tag 10.23.19

What kind of pumpkin am I?? Lord, You have an interesting sense of humor to allow Dawn of Drawing Closer to Christ to nominate me for the October|“What Kind of Pumpkin Are You?” Tag. I love the little story told in the picture. How cute.  I confess those seeds of doubt still need some cleaning out. Not because I distrust you, but because I am still growing, and I know You are still washing the dirt off, and scooping out all the yucky stuff. Just when I think it’s all cleaned out, You find a seed I didn’t even know was there. You keep carving to get that smile to stay, and place a light inside that may not be visible to the human eye (nor my mind’s eye at times), but is absolutely You as my ever present help. My favorite part is when You pick me up! ❤

Thank you, Dawn, for a precious tag that causes me to take a moment to think on my relationship with Christ. I love considering the different ways God is working in my life. May you always see the light burning in your pumpkin! 🙂
God loves you, Dawn!pumpkin tag 1Here are the rules:

  1. Thank the person who tagged you and link their post to yours.
  2. Link the original post so the creators can read them 😊
  3. Use the original featured image and include it in your post.
  4. Copy and paste the meaning of the tag into your post.
  5. Answer the questions.
  6. Tag at least one person.
  7. Have fun and enjoy the rest of your month! ❤ I love the meaning behind this tag…

Here are the questions:

  1. Do you celebrate Halloween? Why or why not?
    No, I do not celebrate Halloween. Not only is against my faith, but I grew up around too much violence and death at least since 3 years old (earliest I can remember).
  2. Cookie Monsters!Do you like to watch scary movies? Why or why not?
    No! Watching death or someone’s pain is not entertaining for me. Fake or not!
  3. Name 3 of your greatest fears.
    I have struggled with fears for as long as I can remember. Sometimes you may read on my blog the Lord leading me to talk about them with Him or to testify. If He is not leading me to do either, I do not talk about them. Don’t help Delilah! 😉
  4. When was the last time you scared someone?
    I don’t know. 
  5. Do you believe in ghosts, angels, and/or demons?
    Yes. The bible speaks of all 3, but tells us to have nothing to do with them.
    a) We all have a ghost (biblically known as a familiar spirit) within us. King Saul tricked the witch of Endor (who knew better than Saul that it was a sin to deal with familiar spirits) to summon Samuel up from the grave. When Samuel arose, he rebuked Saul, and warned Saul that he and his sons would die too that day… and they did.
    b) There are bad angels. 1/3 of heavens angels fell with Satan.
    c) Legion is just one of the parables Jesus told of a young man possessed with a demon… actually several demons, hence the name Legion. They knew who Jesus was, and they feared him enough that at Jesus’ command they left the young man and went into a herd of swine, which they then drove into the waters and drowned.
  6. Do you ever get déjà vu? What do you think it means?
    I have experienced the feeling. I think it just means we either have done something we just don’t remember doing before but sense we have, or that there are too many similarities in life that get our attention more than others, just depending on where our minds are.
  7. What are two of your favorite candies?
    Reese Cups, gummies

30 Questions Tag 10.13.19

Dear Lord, You just keep the tags and awards coming! You know how to keep me faithful in sharing and encouraging when it can be so easy to give in to exhaustion and depression. Thank You for whispering my name to Sharon of Sharon Brown Photo in nominating me for the 30 Questions Tag. Bless her and her blog, Father. You have given her a gift with photography. Thank You for all the things You allow photography to bring my eyes that I might not otherwise ever see.30 Questions Homemade badgeThank you, Sharon! God bless you and your photography. Your blog is an adventurous blessing. I look forward to your “1st Ever Photogvember” through November! Thank you for thinking of me! God loves you!!! ❤

1. What are your nicknames? What do you prefer to be called?
Currently the Lord brings to mind a college buddy (Effy, short for Ephraim) used to call me Shakespeare. It was cute and funny, especially in his Indian accident. He loved saying it too. If the Lord allows I will blog on a favorite memory of Effy calling me Shakespeare that always brings a smile to my face. 🙂

2. How often do you doodle? What do your doodles like?
All the time. Either poetry, sometimes images, and a lot of times just scratch.

3. What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep? Toss and Turn? Try to get up and do something productive?
Pray, read God’s word, recite God’s word, sing hymns

4. Do people consider you as talkative or quiet?
Depends on who you ask. Most people say quiet. Family says talkative.

5. What makes you cry?
Missing loved ones, breaking God’s heart, remembering God’s mercies

6. What is your biggest pet peeve?
People hurting one another… especially children.

7. How many times a day do you look at yourself in the mirror?
Just enough to make sure hair and teeth are clean, or maybe an eyelash in the eye.

8. What is the strangest thing you believed as a child?
Because I heard the word quarter referred to being 25 cents, it took me a long time before I understood that a quarter was 1/4 of a full dollar. Somehow even though I did great in math, I would still confuse someone saying 1/4 as to meaning 25 of something.

9. What is one guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up?
A guilty pleasure implies a wrong pleasure. John Wayne movies are so funny, but the language, drinking, and references to beating women to keep them well behaved is wrong. I really should avoid them and discourage my family from doing so.

10. Who performs the most random acts of kindness out of everyone you know?
Our Lord Jesus Christ! And while the crucifixion was not random, it was certainly the kindest thing anyone ever done for any of us.

11. How often do you read the newspaper? Which sections?
Rarely. Usually online for an obituary or particular article. But I will read it word for word if there is one lying around in the doctor’s office or hospital, as there usually is.

12. Which animal scares you the most?
Anything that cause serious harm or death.

13. Are you more likely to avoid conflict or engage it head-on?
I prefer to face things head on, but sometimes I do avoid conflict if it seems wiser.

14. What was the most recent compliment you’ve received?
That I am blessed more than most in my faith. (God really left me speechless and absorbing the depth of those words. I’m still awestruck.)

15. What question are you tired of hearing?
Does God really care? – He does! He loves you and cares so much!

16. What is the strangest thing you have eaten?
Wax candy when I was a child. YUCK! I hated it! Why are we eating candles???? 😉

17. Do you have a whole lot of acquaintances or just a few very close friends?
Both. God has blessed me with an abundance of both. ❤

18. Do you have a catchphrase?
God loves you! ❤

19. What’s your all-time favorite town or city? Why?
Heaven! It’s where my mansion is! I am so homesick!! 😦

20. If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to?
Gail! It’s my middle name now.

21. When was the last time you lied?
I really can’t remember, but whatever it was stays between me and God.

22. What’s something that amazes you?
The Love of God!! ❤

23. Would you rather be the first person to explore a planet or be the inventor of a drug that cures a deadly disease?
Invent a drug to cure a deadly disease…. hopefully cancer is just one of them!

24. What is your favorite amateur activity?
blogging

25. What was your first thought when you woke up this morning?
Oh my head hurts! I woke up with a headache.

26. What is your favorite song (at least at the moment)?
Take My Life and Let It Be (Consecrated Lord To Thee)
I love this hymn! ❤

27. List someone you know, and describe them in 5 words.
my son Anthoni: Godsent, blessed, blessing, gift, God’s

28. You can select one person from history and have them truthfully answer one question. Who would you select and what would the question be?
“Lazarus, How long did you live after Jesus brought you back from the dead, and what did you die of the 2nd time?”

29. Which celebrity or artist do you resemble the most?
When I was younger I was often told I looked like Karen Carpenter. I had to look up who she was and loved her music… her voice. I was sad when a teacher told me she died.

30. What do you want me to know?
God loves you!!! ❤

“So shalt thou find favour and good understanding

– Proverbs 3:4 KJV

“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.”
– Proverbs 31:30 KJV

These are just a couple of Your verses that You have me thinking on with Carol Anne of Therapy Bits nominating me for the My 7 Favorite Things Tag!  Thank You for her thoughtfulness, Lord.
Bless her and her blog.

Thank you, Carol Anne, for thinking of me with the nomination.
May God bless each one of you! He loves you each! ❤

The Rules:
1. Link back and thank the person who tagged you.
2. Link back and thank the blogger who started the tag.
(I don’t know who this is. In trying to find out, I see some have stated, “That was Beth.” However, I am uneasy with linking her page due to difficulties in verifying this.)
3. List and picture at least seven of your favorite things.
4. Tag at least seven people.
5. List the rules.

My 7 Favorite Things! In no particular order!
(This should JUST 7 of my favorite things because God’s blessings are too many to count. They are infinite! The are a delight to share and praise!)

12374990_1218752768139585_1140565011412187984_o1. I love that Jesus came for me! That little baby in the manger came to give His life for me, to save me from eternal death, and to give me eternal life. He did it for you too! And just in case you do not know it, He’s fine! He is risen! He’s alive! And He went away to prepare a place for you and me! Jesus loves you and me! ❤
“For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” 
– Romans 5:10 KJV

bbs4.22. I love that God knows me by name… and everything about me… and He STILL loves me! For who I am! And I am His! ❤ I am so eager to get to heaven and learn my new name that only HE knows!

43950423_10217158636227537_4643250897021829120_n3. I love talking with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in prayer. And even more so while giving Him the reverent respect He deserves… kneeling. I used to love actually being able to lay on my face as they did in the bible (it’s called prostrate prayer) when I was physically able. But no one knows better than my Jesus that I am blessed to have finally been on my knees again recently for the first time in years! Praise God for doctors and therapists!

IMG_20180518_172515 (3)4. I love God’s Holy Word… aka the Holy Bible. I personally prefer using the KJV (King James Version), but the Lord can use what He will. It is His will, His spirit, and His personal relationship with each one. God’s love letter is the most incredible and thoughtful message to each one of us. Everyone is always saying I wish there was an instruction manual on life… THERE IS! We don’t always get the answers we want, and sometimes we have to learn the hard way that there is not a set answer for everything. But God is there! Waiting to meet you! ❤
“O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.” – Psalm 119:97 KJV
I have favorite verses ALL OVER THE BIBLE!


5. I love writing poetry and stories. God blessed me with this love at the age of 9, just after I was saved but was in foster care. It has helped to save me from myself. You can check out some of those writings on my poetry blog… gaillovesgodspoetry. My favorites are those that magnify and glorify Him… whether in the testimony He created in my life, or to write about the things He gives me… like trees. I am so fascinated by them. 🙂

6. I love ladies bible studies… especially with Keitha leading them! I am grateful to God for her heart for Him. She keeps it real. She keeps it about God. And God keeps Keitha’s personality all over. HE gave her that gift of encouragement and leadership. Thank You, God, for each time You have allowed me to attend… whether just a week or a whole series!
Me and God love you, Keitha! ❤

44826417_2219240331665195_9003911818053156864_n7. I love my gift from God… my son Anthoni (aka Inner Man Theatre). He has been a blessing from the day he arrived. God has amazed me, saved me, led me, taught me, and loved me through my son. People completely underestimate what children can do to save someone from their own lives. If you’re single, underage, in a difficult situation, abandoned, or in anyway blessed with a pregnancy that seems ungodly remember… ONLY GOD CAN GIVE LIFE! That innocent life may be the very rescue that you need. God has sent that child FOR YOU for some reason. He loves you! ❤

    • That I am fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14)
  • Who means the world to me & why?
    • Jesus is all the world to me, my life, my joy, my all;
      He is my strength from day to day, without Him I would fall.
      When I am sad, to Him I go, no other one can cheer me so;
      When I am sad, He makes me glad, He’s my Friend.

    • God loves you! ❤
  • What advice would I give to my younger self?
    • God loves you too! ❤
  • What lesson did I learn this week?
    • No matter how much we may hate our past, God wants to use it to help someone else!
  • If I had all the time in the world, what would I do first?
    • Spend as much alone time with Jesus as I could ❤
      I’d stay in the garden with Him
      Though the night around me be falling,
      But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
      His voice to me is calling.
      And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
      And He tells me I am His own;
      And the joy we share as we tarry there,
      None other has ever known.
      In The Garden, hymn lyrics by C. Austin Miles
