Shifting Gears...

Shifting Gears...
After a very long winter we now need to change many things;
Once again we need to shift gears.
 We cannot stay at the same speed when Spring time
rolls in and old man winter has been told to go,
 Where does he go?
The other side of the earth...

It gets warm earlier in the day and it stays lighter longer;
Why, so we can get our work done!

Old debris must be cleaned away, trees and bushes must be trimmed.
Soil must be tuned over, seeds bought for planting.

I have tried to make a habit of in early spring to start raking outside,
Each day to build my stamina up for the long busy season ahead!

Shake off the winter blahs and know these trials you may be
 going through will only make you stronger.
If we go through it with the least amount of complaining and murmuring,
The chance of having to do it again is less likely...

Feeling down
Feeling tired
Feeling the pain...

Feelings are very powerful, and I do not disregard them,
but when they start to rule your whole home and marriage and finances.
Girl, they are out of control and you now have submitted to them.
They become your master and YOU the slave!

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you:
And through the rivers,
they will not overflow you.

When you walk through the fire,
you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
Isaiah 43:2

Shift gears Dear ones, get out into the open!
Full speed ahead!
Change your perspective;
It is not about doing MORE
It is about doing something different!

The weight of this world is heavy we are not to bear its burden!
I am not the keeper of the EARTH...
But I am called to be the keeper of my HOME

Rejoice and be glad, shake off what has tried to rob You of your JOY
Smile, it will illuminate into the whole EARTH!!
You are the LIGHT of the world
There is a treasure in you (This Earthen Vessel)
And the more cracks, the more the light is brought forth...

He is Alive and He has asked us to occupy till He returns,
May we not grow weary while doing good!

Encourage someone today!
All the decorating and pretty things will never be able to mask
a broken heart, or a broken dream.
Shake off the dust and start moving into His direction;
One step at a time...
You got to move it move it...


  1. Oh, yes, Roxy. Exactly-you have to shift gears and move forward. My post today was about feeling restless and moving! Hope you have a wonderful day- xo Diana

  2. Oh I need this pep talk. Thanks. And thank you for the reasoned approach to Earth Day.

  3. That is one of my LIFE verses, one that I run to , cling to.

  4. I always love your encouraging posts, they are like a breath of fresh air:))

    I have been getting ready for winter and going through all our winter jumpers and sadly I found one which the silver fish had enjoyed :(( Hopefully that won't happen again after all our cleaning. My dear husband also cleaned under our bed (amazing how much dust and cat hair we found:))



I really appreciate your comments! May they be kind and helpful to encourage my walk, and bless others as they read them. Thank-you!
