Coffee for your Heart- You are my Girl

By Susie

 

You are my girl,

My love and my delight,

The one who

Makes my face

Light up like a million stars,

Who curls my mouth,

Into a deep wide smile

Bending my eyes like willow trees,

Dipping down to be closer to you.

 

You, my girl,

 Make my heart sing songs,

That come from so deep within myself,

I cannot even find them,

And when I chase them out

They sound more beautiful

Than a thousand angels singing

Because they sing of you.

 

You are my girl,

My miraculous, created one.

The one I knit together stitch by stitch,

Each part so precious, so important,

That my hands touched,

And held,

And shaped,

And loved,

Nothing overlooked.

 

You, my girl,

Give me joy,

Deep down, belly kind of joy

And laughter, it tumbles out

So beautiful that

All the earth stops

And bends,

And looks,

And sees,

And knows,

That you are mine.

My very own treasure,

My possession so dear.

 

Forever and for always

You are my girl.

 

Zephaniah 3:17

 “He will rejoice over you with great gladness; he will love you and not accuse you.” Is that a joyous choir I hear? No, it is the Lord himself exulting over you in happy song.”(TLB)

Princess and the Hermit Crab?

Princess and the Hermit Crab?

Last month our fairy tale was the beloved Princess and the Pea. Our teacher is making a magazine with all of our drawings- The challenge was to change the story a bit- We each had to think go something else tucked under her mattress that would have disturbed her sleep. We then had to draw a 5×8 picture of it as well as a spot illustration of the object to go on the opposite page.

Coffee for Your Heart- Trust Me

Coffee for Your Heart-Trust Me

By Susie

 

Trust me

when

You don’t understand.

Trust that I am good,

And that I have a better plan

 Trust me

when

You’re scared and falling apart

Trust that I am mending

All your broken parts.

 Trust me

with your yesterday

For it’s already gone.

Trust me

with tomorrow

It will be here before long.

 Most of all,

trust me

with your today

It is my gift.

I’ve already paid.

 It is the present,

A present for you-

I will hold you in it,

I promise to.

 

Psalm 28:7 “my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.”

 

 

 

 

 

Coffee For your Heart- Tomorrow will be a Better Day

Coffee for your Heart- Tomorrow will be a Better Day

By Susie

 

Tomorrow will be a better day,

Because it doesn’t depend

on me,

My tomorrow rests

with You.

 

Tomorrow will be a better day,

Because You promise to make ,

All things, even me,

brand new.

 

You take my broken,

And mend it.

You take my empty,

And fill it.

You take my impossible,

And say, possible.

You take the bad,

And make it good,

Turning things bitter

Into things sweet,

Over and over again.

 

The crazy thing is

Nothing- not one thing

Is ever too hard, too much,

too old, too gone, too dead

For you,

Stepped out of the grave

Gave life

To my dead heart

And told me,

That my story is not over

That it has only just begun,

And that actually

the best, most beautiful part

is still yet to come.

 

So no matter what lies ahead

or what I have been through,

Tomorrow will be a better day

Because it doesn’t depend on me

My tomorrow rests with you.

 

Lamentations 3: 20-24

 “My soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”

Coffee for Your Heart-A Sense of Place

By Susie

 

You have a place,

A reservation,

A spot saved,

By me.

 

You are important,

You take up space,

A special place,

By me.

 

You have a name,

A chosen name,

That fits you,

perfectly.

 

You are accepted,

Pre approved,

On the list,

My favorite one,

You have a place

With me.

 

“You have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.”

Psalm 90:1-3

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coffee For Your Heart- Spring Comes Soft

Coffee for Your Heart- Spring Comes Soft

By Susie

 

Spring comes soft,

Dancing in on tip toe,

Reminding me that

In the cold hard places,

There is still life,

Making its way through.

 Tiny shoots,

Green,

Pushing up soil,

Announce their presence,

Announce Your presence-

You,

Creative one,

gardener, care-taker, tender of my soul.

 You,

Gentle one,

 clothed in kindness, love and compassion.

You,

Glorious one,

Crowned with beauty, color, and light

You,

Majestic one,

Who rides upon the clouds

To save me,

 your beloved,

 From all the deadness,

From the dark.

From all the ugly,

And the fear.

 Bringing out of me,

New, beautiful life,

Over and over again-

 Spring comes soft,

Tip toeing into my heart

With the breeze of hope-

You are making all things new!

 

Deuteronomy 33:26

“There is no one like God, who rides across the heavens to help me and on the clouds in his majesty.

 Revelation 21:5

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
