And He Believed

'Peter set out with the other disciple to go to the tomb.  They ran together, but the other disciple, running faster than Peter, reached the tomb first.  He bent down and saw the linen cloths lying on the ground, but did not go in. Simon Peter, following him, also came up, went into the tomb, saw the linen cloths lying on the ground and also the cloth that had been over His head; this was not with the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in.  He saw and he believed.'  (John 20:3-8)

Because He Has Made a Dandelion

'We do not have to travel the world over 
to praise the wonders of His creation.  
We can grow exultant over one wildflower. 
We can find reason to praise Him 
every day of our life because 
He has made a dandelion.'

The Weaving

'My life is but a weaving
between my Lord and me.
I cannot choose the colors;
He worketh steadily.

Oft times He weaveth sorrow
and I, in foolish pride,
forget He sees the upper,
and I the underside.

Not til the loom is silent
and the shuttles cease to fly,
shall God unroll the canvas
and explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful,
in the Weaver's skillful hand,
as the threads of gold and silver
in the pattern He has planned.'

Benjamin Malachi Franklin

What You Want, As You Want

'Lord, may I think what You want me to think.
May I desire what You want me to desire. 
May I speak as You want me to speak. 
May I work as You want me to work.'
