Do Not plan things out
For HIM. For HE has
His Own Plans! HIS Own
Thoughts! They are Way More
Far-Reaching than Our
Thoughts could possibly Be!
Let HIM Reign
Supreme in
Your Lives.




The Christmas Season is My Time
of Great Rejoicing and Great Praise to God. He gave Me back My Life...So that I could raise My Children and be a Blessing To Many Others.
And Always He Arranges to Make
It A Most Exciting Time... A
fascinating Time; When He does
not reveal Himself until the last Minute of Hoping ~
"You Will Find The Babe Wrapped
In swaddling clothes... lying in a
Manger." The Verse Was Given to Me so strongly
That I Never questioned it's Meaning ` for
I Know that Meant The Babe Was
bringing HIS Joy To The World... and especially at that time To Me.



I have never thought Much on illness ~ but looked Away instead
To The Wholeness of God.
Also I Never looked for symptoms.
I just Wholly Trusted God!

"How did You Get over Cancer ~
One of the World's most deadly killer diseases?"



"There is no
Power Shortage
With JESUS".

"Think Not What
Ye shall speak,
What Ye shall
do".

"The Holy Spirit
Will speak and
Act through You.



Work Without Rest.
Work endlessly.
From My Work
You shall Never
Be free from Morn
Till Night
Your hands
I Need
To gather
The Harvest in.




Work For
The Night
Is Coming.

"The
Lord of
The
Harvest
Calls".

Do Not Waste
Time.
It is Not
Yours
To Waste Your Time
Is My
Time - -
It is
Prime Time!



You shall Walk
In HIS STRENGTH.
You do Not need
Time to rest.
You shall not be
pushed More or
farther than you are
able - than HE Enables
You.

Sunday 9/3/79



Troubles? I had loads of them -
family responsibilities; frailty
following Cancer surgeries. Name it.
I had it!
But when he opened his Bible -
and showed Me that Verse -
(Hebrews 11:1-6) - I was dazzled
by the brightness of God's
Promises - and I felt
lifted from the pains of life,
filled with hope and Courage.
Ever since, it has served as
a guide to lead Me out of
Troubles into The Light of
His Truth, and onto the firm
Foundation of HIS Love.

9/11/79





Find
God
In
The
Morning,
He
Will
Be
With
You
All
The
Day -


"The
Potter
has Power -
complete
Power
over
The
Clay.

I would
be
resisting
God -
the Touch
of God
if I
did Not
Know
that
He is
a God
of
Love" -
And that
God has
an
image
before He
starts of
what
He
wants me
to be -
The only
thing I can
do is
to yield
so He can
make What
he envisions
for Me.

He is now Molding
and shaping and
fitting You for the
Glory He envisions
for You.

10/17/79

THOUGHT:

What does the
Man of the world do When
things go wrong? Usually
curses - and thus unites
with the evil one.

And the Man of God?
He prays and praises
God "in spite of" - -
And thus Unites himself
with all of the power
and resources and
inspirations of God.

TODAY
Is
Fresh
And
Shining
And
New.
Dear
Lord, I
Present
It
Intact
TO YOU.

Be a clean Vessel
Fit for HIS Use.
A golden Pitcher
To pour out
HIS LOVING
Words -
HIS LIVING
WATER.

Come
Lord
Jesus,
Come
Push
back
The
dark
of
Night.
Fill Our
hearts
And
lives
And all
the
earth
With THY
Holy
Light.
We become What
We decide -
God stands ready
always to help
us become What We
see in Christ -


Life For Me Does
Not Have To Be
Beautiful.
I Can Create And
Develop
My Own Beauty!
A day can be as dark
and filled with gloom as
anything.

You
are
What
You
Say -
But
Not
What
Someone
Else
Says! 

So Many times in My
Life The Bad (as
Yesterday) is changed
Into The Good.




You
Must
Keep
Your
Eyes
On
Jesus -
If You
Keep
Your
Eyes
On
Jesus
He
Will
Always
Be
Enough.
Don't
Give
Up,
Don't
Give
Up!
Keep
Your
Eyes
On
Jesus!

When HE Is
Ready HE Will
Reach out To
Me
In Love!

He Who dwelleth
With Thee
Is Mighty,
He Will Save.
He Will Rejoice
Over thee
With Singing.
He Will rest
In His Love.



My "CLIFF HOUSE"

This Treasured Spot has inspired Me ever since a freeway had gone through My lovely home in Sherman Oaks.
The only place I wanted to go was to Laguna Beach . . . where
I had written My First Poem earlier.
It is a Glorious Spot. Nothing could improve it, or replace it.
So often in My Life Something good has come from
Something bad.
I did Not want to give up My Sherman Oaks home, but
I found something better, here above The Sea . . . just being
built, almost finished.
My Little Cliff House




FROM ONE LITTLE GRAIN OF SAND

From One Little Grain
of Sand
A pearl can Grow,
And One Little Bit
Of Faith
Can Help You Know
There Is Someone
Who Will Understand.

"The Poem had Come to Me
Like a Comet, flashing into
My Life ~ that amazing Day
At The Sea as I sat at the foot
of the cliff across from Bird rock.
I was Carrying a heavy load of Care . . .
But the Cares were lifted,
And My Heart became as Light
as a feather. Everything Changed!
It was as though a grain
of Sand had been enlarged
Before My Eyes . . .
and The Little Poem That
Came to Me had
Captured My Thoughts, and
Lifted Them.
A Miracle had Come
To Me at The Sea!


The Poems Continue to Come to
Me in a steady stream.
Many of them have been shared with others.
Reaching Home that
Evening, I had of course
Told my Family
about My Miracle
At The
Sea.
They had been
as surprised
and as pleased about
It as I was.
While we were still talking about it we
had heard that a neighbor had been sent
to the hospital.
When I had gone over
to the home to
see what I could do -
Viviana's face was dark with worry.
Nothing I could say could seem to help lift
the darkness from her face.
I told her ~ " a little Poem
came to Me Today at The Sea.
It helped Me".
Immediately, She Was all attention.
" Could You not remember It?" She
had questioned eagerly.
I had Told Her that if She
would find me a pen
and paper, I would try to
write it down. The Lord was already using
the Poem ~ and I had not
had time to write
it down.
When I had done so, a change
had come over her face immediately.
She had begun to smile. It was quite remarkable.
"I feel Better already!" She had exclaimed.
For Now, she realized that She Was
Not alone. Someone Cared! The
Pearl of Faith had begun to Grow. . .
from the tiny Grain of Sand.


"Yesterday Was so Beautiful
At The Sea. I seemed to leave
Care behind.
The Gulls were Glorious
as They Wheeled and turned
in the Air, diving for food.
The Sea looked opalescent in
Colorings, shot through With
flashes of light.
I walked Home al along
The Shore.

And again This Morning
The Sea was Magnificent, With a rosy
Horizon Glowing over quiet Waters,
And a pale Moon hanging above
in the Western Sky.
Birds Were singing, Doves Were
Cooing On the hillsides.
Beach Weather is Here . . .
And one feels it in ones
Very Bones.
~



GRACE

Grace pulled
Herself Up By
Hanging Onto
My Red Pants
And Stood
There just
Talking to Me
in her funny
little language
as though She
knew You Were
leaving and
She Wanted
To
tell Me
A Special
Good-bye!

It Was
One of The
Most
Beautiful
Moments
Of My
Life!
I have Never
Forgotten how
Adorable It
Was!

Thank You
For Her ~ Lord!
Bless Her Sweet Life!
