God has me on a journey - and as I travel it, this blog reflects the thoughts and musings (and the odd butterfly) from the heart of a middle-age woman, who is learning how to love with all my being, live fully and with no regrets, embrace life with my husband,kids and grandkids, and to let God lead in the dance of life that He has me learning!

i am a jar of clay
a one of a kind
cracked, broken but redeemed
light shines through the cracks
could be broken again
that is always known
and yet not held in fear.
i am a priceless vessel
made uniquely by the great Potter
fragile and yet i do not want to just sit on the shelf
looked at and collecting dust
i want to be used
not saved for special occasions but rather treasured but used.
the Potter shapes
pours into and out of
His touch creates and makes beautiful.
from dust you came
to dust you'll return
a reminder of being ordinary
of the earth ~ which He also created.
But now O Lord, you are our Father
We are the clay and you are the Potter!
we are all the work of your hand. (Isaiah 45:9)
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all surpassing power is from God and not from us! (2 Cor)
i am nothing
HE is everything
potter and clay
made and lovingly created to be
made for His glory, His grace and His love
grace and mercy molded together
He inhabits this clay vessel
Come! Lord Jesus Come!
Come! Holy Spirit Come!
"We can't love God's way without being filled with Him. If we try it on our own, we end up exhausted and burnt out!"
