A Girl’s Best Friend

Gentle rain falling throughout the night left these sparkling diamonds for me in the early morning walk through the green garden.

The daylilies will soon be bountiful with blossoms.



Have you ever had a thought and even though you knew down deep inside it wasn’t true, you also had a lot of evidence to support the fact that it is true?  Sometimes an enemy lie or a loss or a self-defeating prophecy echoes through your head.  It’s funny to us on the SNL movie “Stuart Saves His Family,” when he has to repeat the mantra “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough and doggonnit, people like me, ” because we know that in reality he is hearing, “I’m going to die penniless and homeless. I am still 25 pounds overweight.  No one will ever love me.”  Stinkin; thinkin’. 

And it is all pathetically untrue, for Stuart and for us.  But we have those accusations that pierce.

Mine today was: everyone leaves you eventually.  Nobody stays.

Then, playing a CD Tara gave me as one of my Mother’s Day presents (Hidden in My Heart ~ A Lullaby Journey Through Scripture, www.scripture-lullabies.com), this song broke through, and it is lovely and it is true.  I know this.


“…For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you,’ so we may boldly say: ‘The LORD is my helper; I will not fear.  What can man do to me?…'”  Hebrews 13.5 NKJV

When your sky is cold and lonely and your heart is filled with fear
I will wrap my arms around you, know that I am here
And I will keep you safe and sound through the darkness that surrounds


I will never leave you
Nor forsake you
Know that I am with you
You will never be alone.


When your way is bright and glowing and your soul knows no despair
Can you hear Me singing with you?  In your triumph I will share
For I am watching over you and I rejoice in all you do


So remember, never doubt this
Hold it tightly to your heart
I’m forever always with you
I will be right where you are

I will never leave you.
