Watch your actions,
They define you habits.
Watch you habits,
They define your character.
Watch your character,
It defines your destiny.

My whole being, Praise the Lord.
I will praise the Lord all my life;
I will sing Praises to my God

 A Super big Thank YOU!
 sent out to
by Edie
She got my button up and running.
Something I have been trying to
do for weeks!
She has a Gift for Graphics....
I am best gifted in skills not so much...
She has a awesome website
Free Christian Tags to Share.

You can not tell me
God did not have his hand
in me surfing the world wide web and
finding a graphic angel.

Seeds, Petals & Scripture Titled
"Son Shine Blooms"
The Yellow flowers represent the light of Jesus
coming into the world to serve and teach the truth.
The abundance of flowers is representational of us living in 
truth and the abundance we receive when we sow seeds in Faith.   
Enrich you soul with healthy thinking.
Meditate on the living word of
Jesus Christ.
The Power of Faith.....

Matthew 21:21-22
"Jesus answered, "I tell you the
truth, if you have
faith and do not doubt, you
will be able to do what I did
to this tree and even more.
You will be able to say to this
mountain, 'Go Fall into the sea.'
And if you have faith,
It will happen.
If you believe, you will get anything
you ask for in prayer."

Faith needs to be more than just
a Sunday event.
Love and serve the Lord
in your faith and
receive the abundance
only He can give.

More Than Enough, New Beginnings... Seeds, Petals and Scripture

Hey blog Friends, I have been working on a
series of watercolor paintings I am calling
Seeds, Petals and Scripture.
Over the next few weeks or months
I will share 1  0r 2 each new post.
Some I have probably posted before.

 I began these paintings because I started to think about how God
plants seeds in our souls...
seeds of hope...
seeds of healing,
seeds of dreams.
and so on......
It is about a process or a purpose , a planting, a nourishing and in the end
it's about a beautiful 
 Our Spirits!

Original Watercolor Titled, "Field of Blooms"

In this watercolor you will see small specks of paint from a technique called
spattering, this represents the seeds all arround us.
 The blue sky represent the need for sunshine and a savior, Jesus.
The blooms reprsent the the spirit within blooming when it filled with the Holy Spirit.

Paul sowed seeds of God's words to the people of Israel,
Seeds of Hope, Seeds of Trust...
Romans 15:13
"I pray that the God who gives hope will fill
you with much joy and peace while you trust in him
Then your hope will overflow by the power
of the Holy Spirit."

Another stroke of the brush

Okay, God...
Soooo whats next?
How will you use me?
Where will you use me?
Are ya gonna use me?
Because I know you don't truly need little old me,
 a stay at home mother of 4,
with a desire to paint and serve you!
I"m just a needle in a hay stack of believers.
What can you possible use me for!
One believer...
One quite voice...
One mere mortal...
The Big Question???
Why have you placed this nagging desire within me?
Only to make it so hard to figure out the next step...
could you just call me up and say,
Hey, Deborah... Here is what I want you to do...
 I Pause..........
I Pray...........
 I am trying to be Patient.......

Directions please...
As I sit here looking out my window I can only see
a couple 100 feet or so...
It is super foggy here.
And that is exactly how I am
 One step at a time, without seeing past the
fog...Is that the message?
A message of trust.
Because even though it is foggy I
do know whats out there in that
field just past the fog.
I have seen it on a million sunny days,
(okay maybe not a million)
I trust it is still there beyond the fog.
I do know this, God is also
Just like he has been a million
times before...
He has given me more than enough...
More than enough signs,
More than enough answered prayers,
More than enough blessing.
More than enough Holy Spirit moments...
Moments when I truly know
 without a doubt
Jesus is right beside me,
right within me...
A tingling, a warmth and a indescribable moment
when I can truly feel his presence.
A persistent feeling I am right where he needs
me and saying just the right thing to someone
who needs to hear just the right thing...
And thinking Hey,
Where did that come from?
There have been times in my life when I trusted no one.
I have experience deceit and lies, times when
what I believe to be truth was not.
But, the truth in my experience does always
reveal its self in time.
And whether we choose to believe it
or not trust surrounds us everyday,
even when we don't think we are capable of  trusting
We trust the other drivers to stay on their side of the road,
We trust the time on your watch or cell phone.
We trust the can of soup we are about to open
is safe to eat.
And I trust God does have a plan and a purpose for me.
And a purpose for each and everyone of us.
So I will wait and trust without seeing what is
waiting for me on the other side of the fog.

May you also trust God,
with your doubts,
your fears,
and all your worries.
At the foot of the cross we are all equally loved.

Another stroke of the brush!

Romans 8:31
"What then shall we say to this?
If God is for us, who can be
against us?
He who did not spare his own Son
But handed him over for us ALL,
 how will he not also give us
everything else along with him?
Who will bring a charge against God's
chosen ones?
It is GOD who Equips us."

My thoughts:
 If then God equips us
with all we need to flourish,
 through his Son
 and with his enduring love.
Are we not called to
see that others are equipped

Reach out,
Reach within,
Reach your arms
arround someone
who needs the
Love God. 

As much as I love my own
children, I believe it is nothing
compared to the Love
 God has for his children.
For I can truly say
with all my heart and soul,
I could not hand over even one
of my children,
for the sake of another.
I would surly give my own life, 
before giving the life of one of my children...

How awesome is this LOVE?
Never Changing...

Share this love with others and help them to
become equipped in the love of GOD.
 Receive this love by Grace through Faith.
