Some thoughts, lessons, and/or reflections from the day:

  • I had a line from a song running through my head all day — “Yes, my heart will say!”
  • It was a great reminder to worship God and love Him with my whole heart as each time the words came to mind I would consider what my heart would say to Him then.
  • I can’t remember the rest of the song, but sometimes a single line is enough.
  • As I worked on cleaning tracked in salt residue from floors, my heart was thankful for God’s continual work in cleansing me from all unrighteousness even though I still track dirt in from time to time.
  • As I worked on heating system issues, my heart was filled with the warmth of God’s love that never ends.
  • As I worked on prayer ministry material to share at a camp leaders conference, my heart praised God for giving me something worth sharing and for providing partners who help me share it.
  • As I helped run a fire drill at the school, my heart was grateful that God has rescued me from eternal destruction.
  • As I spent and evening with my family, I was thankful for God’s presence within each of us which brings joy to one another.
  • As we sought out, found, and photographed a snowy owl, my heart rejoiced in the beauty of God’s creative handiwork.
  • As I froze my fingers off photographing a Lake Michigan sunset, my heart was happy with God artistic presentation of a beautiful evening sky.
  • As I went to bed with a page that had been lived but unwritten, my heart was thankful for an understanding God that delights in me even more than in what I do.
  • Upon reflection, I think the song was about never being alone . . . I guess when I consider what my heart will say to God, I really am never lone.
  • Today’s photo is one of the final ones I took for the day as I stood in the bitterly cold wind admiring the beauty set before me.  And yes, my heart will say, “God, you are my light and my salvation.  Of whom shall I be afraid?”.

  1. I’ve had that children’s song running in my head and I found myself giving voice to it as I slogged through the day – “I’ve got the peace that passes understanding down in my heart, down in my heart, down in my heart to stay…”

    • I usually find a song of some kind playing in my mind. They have a way of reassuring me that things will be okay even if the circumstances of the day may tempt me to believe otherwise.
