    Sometimes we just need some good fellowship--sharing our hearts and experiences with one another.... Hopefully, this thread can be a place for that.

    OFFICIAL RULES:
    1.) There are no off-topic topics in this thread.
    2.) There will be no arguing, theologizing, sermonizing, etc. (Bible verses are welcome as long as they are used to encourage others.)

    What a sweet refreshing thread. :)
    I turned out my light at ten thirty...slept for an hour ...and here I am, awake again! :(
    Very annoying. I’ve been laying here praying for different needs. Then I thought I would check the Site...and here you are with a relaxing new thread. (About all my brain can take right now.ha!)

    God bless you all richly , and visit you with an encouraging word.

    Hallelujah! You mean a place that I can relate personal experiences with God and not be told I'm mistaken? Vunderbar!

    A place to say God spoke to me and not be called deranged? Superb!

    A place to say God stays the same? Excellent.

    I'm not certain I feel comfortable without being assaulted with a pillowcase filled with scriptures!

    But I'll try. Bless you all that yearn for more if Jesus and his doings.

    Jesus asked "what things" ?.

    This sprang to mind. Being a lifetime outdoorsman, hunter, fisherman, wood cutter, trekker I've seen God in nature many many times. Deer hunting, he sent deer that came from nowhere and stood broadside to me as if to say "here I am, God sent me to you for you and your family". This happens time and again.

    Not ALL is harvesting. I've spent hundreds of hours observing nature in remote places. Beautiful things he made. Watching fawns chase each other like playful children as their mothers grazed is a fond memory. They would run so fast they would get very near the ground in a tan blur as they chased one another.

    Watching a mother bobcat teaching her two small clubs to hunt while the alarmed Bluejays told everyone in the woods that danger was near.

    At twilight seeing a large lone wolf sitting on the crest of a hill as the sun set behind him.

    Sitting on our porch as the sun sets and small flights of wood ducks sped above the stream below me looking for a quiet pool to spend the night.

    This remembrance leads me to a writing the Lord gave me about flowing waters. Shall I bore you? Of course! After all, he gave it.

    This is the story of a River's beginnings as mere raindrops high in the mountains and growing to a mighty flow.


    FLOWING
    By Frank Lee Jennings
    all rights reserved ©2016

    Revised Christmas day 2017 4am


    Away up high the showers fall
    from clouds a rushing by
    to feed the little trickles
    a falling from the sky

    and drenching there the mountain lands
    that father sea bound streams
    and raise them up to seek their way
    and glory in their dreams

    beads forming, drops merging
    tiny streamlets all sprint down
    scores and hundreds fingers joining
    in mountain mazes winding round

    off gray ledges waters leaping
    grown to rushing, skyward heaping
    waves whirl bounding, ever growing
    cascades riot, rainstorms blowing

    a swirl fest, boiling, frothy show
    charging jagged flint below
    headlong into pools and hollows
    motley flotsam riding high

    roaring steeply down through gorges
    sheer faced mossy granite hands
    rays of mist birth peacock rainbows
    rush away to delta lands

    wider now though often parting
    joined again far from the starting
    merged again through many turnings
    blended waters onward churning

    past the farms past the houses
    past the little river towns
    past the fields of row crops growing
    fruit grows up while roots reach down

    tribes of waters dance as one
    gleaming in the noon day sun
    shimmering under midnight moon
    stealthy in a cloudy gloom

    wheeling, tilting, cupping wings
    scant above tan waves
    speeding flights of waterfowl
    on murky river twilight bays

    darkly, boldly moving ever
    dawn then twilight greet the river
    greet fierce squalls and monsoon bands
    flotsam, jetsam joining hands

    river dwellers mull the flow
    net gray schools that swim below
    harvest wood that floats above
    glean the harvest coming home

    delta river brown and grown
    wise with age, youth all sown
    toiling toward the sea forever
    labors ever, ever flowing
    flowing flowing flowing down

    Hi, Helen, glad that you made it to the thread! I know what you mean about sleep. My sleep patterns have been whacked out too. I decided a long time ago that if the devil kept me awake at night, I'd use that time to pray for people and make a dent in his plans.

    Nice poem Frank!
    I can't compete but here is my little autumn poem

    As I observed you falling down,
    drifting slowly to the ground,
    A sense of despair came within
    knowing your life had come to end.

    I then looked up from which you came
    and saw another do the same,
    Little leaf from the tree
    you have shown me reality...

    This here tree from which you came
    is the TRUE life and you the beauty of it's name...

    Every thread should be like this....where only edification is the goal. :)

    God has a definite sense of humour. Today...yes it began early, I received an important email which I had been waiting for. I tried to save it in gmail by putting it in "archive". Little did I know that this feature means delete until response back again.

    When God winks at you...you have to wink back! ;)

    We are here on God's agenda....not our own. :)
