Hi, I sometimes call myself the Christian Poetress...I am a wife of a wonderful husband, a mother, grandmother and great grandmother...My passion is to write poems that lead others to the gospel of Christ...It is a gift I have received after becoming a Christian in 1983...I started writing in 1986 on how I truly feel with pen and paper in hand, through my own experiences and through what the Bible teaches us in life...I make a decision to follow God each new day through His beloved Son...Life has not been easy but Jesus has been my rock to help me make a stand in what I believe to be the narrow way of life through our Lord Jesus Christ...I pray these poems and my blog will be an encouragement to you and that they will lift you up and help you along the way...God bless each of you with a new day and with many blessings.

"Be Thankful in All Things"

I Thessalonians 5:18

"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God

In Christ Jesus concerning you"

" I once read a book called "Power in Praise" by Merlin Carothers.  It enlightened my way of thinking and changed my attitude to gratitude."  The simple things in life were hard for me to understand why certain things would happen and I would simply get angry over.  So, when things happened I told the Lord I would work on being Thankful.  Like dropping something on the floor and braking it, instead of being upset, I would say, Thank you, Lord.  I noticed a difference in my attitude and how it sent off good endorphins.  Instead of being angry I became thankful. In other words I would respond to my incident instead of react.  I know God allows certain things in our lives to happen that we don't understand, but by being thankful in the situation releases His hands to work to our benefit.  I have found it to be true so, many different times in my own life.  I pray this will encourage someone in taking an attitude of gratitude when we're going through certain things in our own lives.  Try it, you may be surprised how things come out.  Thought for the day...
