It's Moments Like These. . .

It's Moments Like These. . .
They don't come very often, you know,
But when they do,
I wish I could share them with you!

It's moments like these. . .
When I hear God say,
"I care. . .
I'm there. . .
I hear your prayer."
It's then that I know
That He is bigger than I am,
Bigger than my problem,
Bigger than all I can imagine
Could ever be wrong.

And He makes it all right. . .
And He holds me so tight. . .

It's moments like these. . .
They don't come very often, you know,
But the could. . .
And they should. . .
And they would. . .
If only we trust,
And pray,
And listen more often.
For He's always there,
And always cares,
And always answers our prayers.

It's moments like these
He longs to share
With me. . .
And with you!


During the past day or two, I've had so many wonderful moments when I have read all of your precious comments and promises of prayer, and encouraging words. How can I ever thank you all????? It IS moments like these that are written forever on my heart and I will always be eternally grateful to you and to the Lord for the friends He has sent my way!


For these things, I thank you, Lord:
8. Friends who care and pray.
9. Good bargains at the grocery store and strength to carry them in!
10. Great carrot zuchinni bread with coffee!
11. A cardinal vine that grew and bloomed and graced my fence despite my neglect!
12. A rabbit sitting on my porch!
13. A Whippoorwill who sings through the night, knowing the morning always comes!

Okay, you make me feel very very guilty. You know that Whippoorwill you are so thankful for? Is that the one you listened to all night last night??? Well, so did I...and I, too, thought it was beautiful...for the first 30 minutes. After three hours of that bird, I was not all that thankful, nor did I think it was beautiful anymore. After six hours, I was seriously fantasising shooting it! Then I read your poetic beauty of the Whippoorwill and felt total guilt! I can't stand that bird....I just know he is sitting right outside my bedroom window laughing at me!!!

Standing in the gap for you with the full armor of God on.
You are loved.

I just have to say that the whippoorwill has got to be one of the strangest looking birds in all creation. I too though love to hear their song. Especially the first one of late spring signaling that longer days and warmer weather are here to stay.

As always, Cora, your poem is so lovely. I thank God for your gift that always moves me.

In contrast, I am laughing hilariously at your thankfulness for the Whippoorwill and Juri's threat to shoot it. LOL You two are sooo funny!

How nice to have a bunny sitting on your porch! And a cardinal vine gracing your fence. We have a bunch of cardinal vines growing in the woods. Jeffrey & I are trying to figure out how to move them where we can enjoy them without fighting all the creepy woodland bugs to see them.
