He Sprinkled Heaven With Gold Dust

Starry NightWay beneath the sunless sky
The awestruck angels spoke
Lit many candlesticks with love
And heaven’s gold dust the darkness broke

How beautiful the night-time sky
Each star He knows by name
A golden dazzle of blanket spread
No two created the same

So within every painful, darkened trial
There’s a light awaiting to break forth
And you will know, as He’s always known
That your heart has been captured north

A Golden Heart

18th Jan, 2013 058

There is the potential for a heart of gold in each of us.

It’s deep within some ….. waiting ….. waiting ….. as it waits for renewal.

In others it’s full of visible beauty.

And as each act of kindness is given, love is scattered.

Love is shared.

Gold needs a furnace to be made perfect.

In order to be compassionate, one has usually suffered.

Suffered the same or similar to the one to whom compassion is given.

Only someone going through this trial can truly comprehend where help is needed.

Be it understanding.

Wisdom.

A meal.

A smile.

A home.

A bed.

Food.

Water.

A hug.

Love.

Trustworthy advice.

Trust.

Loyalty.

Friendship.

Non-judgmental support.

To be silent.  To just be there.

From “Fragrance from the Spring”

And Just Because

“And just because I have your friendship

And just because I know you care

I pray the Lord, dear friends to send you

Who’ll listen, love and sweetly share

***

And just because you’re always there

And just because your smile’s for Him

I pray the Lord, new strength to send you

Because I know you’re feeling weak, eyes dim

***

And just because of your love for others

And just because of concern for all things right

I pray the Lord, comfort throughout the hours

When you’re needing fresh ‘songs in the night’

***

And just because I know you need help

And just because I know you’re struggling

I pray the Lord, our dear precious Lord

To send a bouquet of His most fragrant Scriptures

A present from our Almighty King”

***

Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.’

2 Corinthians 1:4 KJV
