A Sister Friend among the Communion of Saints

By melanie jean juneau, published on Mar 21, 2013

I don’t want to argue theology with sisters who are Protestant, I just want to encourage other women with the thought that there are tens, hundreds, why maybe thousands of sisters, most of whom we will never meet, who pray for us. The Holy Spirit is my companion but in His Body, He has gifted me with many other faithful companions and Agnes is one of my special friends.

Most people have never heard of Agnes Sanford (1897-1982) She was an interesting woman who was born to missionaries in China, married an American Anglican ( Episcopalian) and became mother to three children. Agnes suffered... (more)

The Seashore

By Betty B., published on Mar 1, 2012

I'm walking down the sandy beach Lord, hoping to hear your voice in me, the world is crazy outside here today, I'm praying you lead me right to your way.

As I walk I pray your here, wanting to feel your touch so true, its hard at times and more pain is near, I'm praying you keep me so safe and sound.

I see the beauty inside my soul, I hear the sounds as I walk the shore, why does my life always seem so poor, I look at others and their world seems so new, why do they act so violent toward you.

I know your touch and how it can change them, why do we all have such a time rearranging... (more)

Unfolding

By Betty B., published on Mar 1, 2012

When the deep dark wind of pain starts folding in around me you take hold of my hands and wrap them in love.

It seems that this way of darkness unfolds right before my eyes it's your love that keeps me alive

So precious is the thought that unwinds of the way things use to be when you found me the first time

You shelter me in Thy Grace Your hands touch my face

Your ways are true when we meet one day in the world anew the shadows will fade and you'll make me new

Oh how I long for the time when I see you coming in the sky your heart in mine the darkness leaves... (more)

Butterfly Love!

By Betty B., published on Feb 25, 2012

Do you ever watch the butterfly?

The beauty in its colors.

The love in its movements

its just like no other.

The butterfly is my favorite

of the bugs and the flowers

the love it shows is like Gods hand

its touch is soft and full of grace

so gentle in its movements like the Lamb.

So as you walk in the spring

watch the butterfly as it lands

see how it moves and let it stand

on the flowers God made for us and it,

take it slow and never skip.

I was thinking of you, Lord

By Betty B., published on Feb 11, 2012

I was thinking of you just today, Oh,how beautiful you are in your own way,

I think of the words in the Bible alot, how you moved mountains and never lost control,

I was thinking of you Lord,just today your ways and the love that comes my way,

today Lord,you used me so much how wonderful it is to touch others with your love,

I was reading a book and thought of the blessing, that you gave in a story and warmed my heart.

I was thinking of you Lord,and I got a call, someone needed you, I let your love fall,

Your love fell from me to the soul on the phone,... (more)

His Love

By Betty B., published on Feb 10, 2012

Lord,today I need to have a sense of Your presence I need to know Your here with me.

I have failed You so much in my life I can't seem to lose all this strife.

I am tired of running the race I seem not to win but in the end with You I know the victory is already won.

Its the sin in this world that leaves us blind why can't we see the way it is.

Only Your touch leaves me longing for Your embrace I feel like a failure in time of trial, why is it hard Lord to get out of this denial?

I know Your there, I see it in the sky I see it in the flowers growing wild with... (more)

The Dust - Apathy in life exposes your cracks

By D. Sager, published on Feb 10, 2012

You see beauty everywhere, your supposed to be happy. Your not.

You see people laughing, your supposed to be a part. Your not.

You see tears falling, your supposed to feel. Your not.

You see prayers offered, your suppose to do that. Your not.

You see life passing, your supposed to do something. Your not.

And worst of all, you just don't care. I mean you really, really, don't care. About anything.

Its a death you feel in every little crack of your soul.

Like dust collecting, its death in the small areas of your life.

But wait you walking... (more)
