But as it is written, 
Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, 
neither have entered into the heart of man, 
the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 
1 Corinthians 2:9


HE will silently plan for thee,
Object thou of omniscient care;
God Himself undertakes to be
Thy Pilot through each subtle snare.

He WILL silently plan for thee, 
So certainly, He cannot fail!
Rest on the faithfulness of God,
In Him thou surely shalt prevail.

He will SILENTLY plan for thee
Some wonderful surprise of love.
Eye hath not seen, nor ear hath heard,
But it is kept for thee above.

He will silently PLAN for thee,
His purposes shall all unfold;
The tangled skein shall shine at last,
A masterpiece of skill untold.

He will silently plan FOR THEE,
Happy child of a Father's care,
As though no other claimed His love,
But thou alone to Him wert dear.

E. Mary  Grimes

Broken Dreams
(By Lauretta P. Burns)

As children bring their broken toys with tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God because He was my friend.

But then instead of leaving them with Him in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help with ways that were my own.

At last I snatched them back and cried, "How can you be so slow?"
"My child," He said, "What could I do? You never did let go."

Here are two of my newest cards.

He’s All That Matters

If I wake up tomorrow
With nothing but pain
And all the things are gone
That I’d counted as gain
If I still had Jesus
As my Saviour and Lord
I’d still be as rich as a king.

If each day brought losses
That were so hard to bear.
If every one left me
With no one who cared
If I still had Jesus
As my Saviour and Lord
I still His praises would sing.

For He’s all that matters
When all’s said and done
The stuff that we treasure
Is nothing but dung
I’d trade it all in a moment
For Jesus my King
For He is what matters to me.

Here is my newest card to link to Word Art Wednesday.

Have a blessed weekend!

I sometimes think that God must surely smile,
While looking on His world so tenderly;
And whisper softly to His angels there:
“Could they but see."

His fretted world perplexed and worn and sad,
Distrustful of His watching thought the while;
Unmindful of the strength of love which shines
Behind God’s smile –

The kindest smile a weary world could know –
A smile that pities, loves, forgives and plans;
That knows earth’s strivings, failings, hopes and fears,
And understands.

Could they but see how near His angels are,
And know the grandeur of the ways they tread,
Or glimpse the land of happiness untold
Which lies ahead.  

I sometimes think that God must surely smile,

When looking on His troubled world below,
And whisper softly, tenderly, His thought:
“Could they but know.”

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: 
now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 
1 Corinthians 13:12

A couple more cards I made.  
The photos aren't too good, but you can get the general idea.

I have been quite busy lately and have not shared any of my cards with you in a long time.

I thought I would share a few of my latest.

Thanks for visiting.

The Bible


 The Holy Bible is God’s love letter to us.
It is God’s words given to men to write down for us to read.
It is our guide book.
It provides strength and comfort.
It encourages us when we are doing right
and convicts us when we are doing wrong.
God’s Word never changes.

 Century follows century – it still stands.
Dynasty succeeds dynasty – it still stands.
Empires rise and fall and are forgotten – it still stands.
Kings are crowned and uncrowned – it still stands.
Storms of hate swirl about it – it still stands.
Atheists rail against it – it still stands.
Profane, prayerless punsters caricature it – it still stands.
Unbelief abandons it – it still stands.
Thunder bolts of wrath smite it – it still stands.
The flames are kindled about it – it still stands.
Author Unknown

Heaven and earth shall pass away:  but my words shall not pass away.
Luke 21:33 

The Bible Stands

The Bible stands like a rock undaunted
’Mid the raging storms of time;
Its pages burn with the truth eternal,
And they glow with a light sublime.

The Bible stands though the hills may tumble,
It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
For the Bible stands.

The Bible stands like a mountain towering
Far above the works of men;
Its truth by none ever was refuted,
And destroy it they never can.

The Bible stands and it will forever,
When the world has passed away;
By inspiration it has been given,
All its precepts I will obey.

The Bible stands every test we give it,
For its Author is divine;
By grace alone I expect to live it,
And to prove and to make it mine.
