“Be thankful for the least gift, so shall you meet to receive greater.”
–Thomas A. Kempis
I believe, discovering life’s treasures is seeing everything through the lens of abundance. And becoming acutely aware shows forth a plethora of our 5 senses surrounding life.
These are some of my abundant treasures to behold:
Morning sunshine to greet my first prayer while walking my doggies.
Finding fresh carnations my Beloved has set on the dining table.
Receiving a spiritual word or phrase to write about here.
Going shopping with my best friend.
Gazing from an upper deck my freshly mowed back yard.
Donating clothes to women’s shelters.
…I could go on and on endlessly…
I hope this post encourages you to ponder over your list of abundant treasures.

Jesus is the roaring and powerful lion.
“The Lord roars from Zion, and sounds His voice from Jerusalem, and heaven and earth quake. But the Lord is a refuge for His people, and a stronghold for the children of Israel.” —Joel 3:16
Jesus is roaring in heaven right now.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” –Revelation 3:22
Jesus is the Lion of Judah.
According to Prophet Robin D. Bullock,
“Come with me, says the Lord. See a fast unraveling of future events. This is a peculiar time, says the Lord. Move through the future to conquer and fight. We are children soldiers of the Lord. A landslide takes a long time to dig out of it, but the enemy is very afraid. Be serious in prayer time. Fight with the Word of God. The Church must stand up and operate in the Holy Spirit for a renewed Pentecost to happen.”
Let us listen to Jesus, the Lion of Judah.

Exactly a year ago today, it so happened that I lost my bottom middle tooth, hoping it would loosen naturally and it did with much discomfort. Showing my new space to my Beloved, he quirked, “better get it replaced.” “No dear, I’m praying and believing God will replace it in due time.” The time has come. My new porcelain is ridging upward but with great pain. No matter, I must shout when 2 miracles happen!
As I write this sitting in bright sunshine though the wind is chilly, I rejoice, so thankful that Jesus is giving me a new tooth to chew solid foods soon again.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
My Sunshine, I love you, Jesus!
A Lively Still Life by Salvador Dali
“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” –Proverbs 16:9
This famous still life is oddly not dead according to Dali’s conscience. I viewed it when traveling through Spain, expressing the freedom of thought to create any image possible.
The quote speaks otherwise and could ask, “are you letting Jesus be your GPS?” It takes courage to surrender to God for everything, but when you get the hang of it, it becomes easier, and satisfies more than you could imagine. With Jesus, we never get lost. Agree?
Blowing in the Wind by David Lane
The Love of God is so vast it blows when the wind comes.
We, in time and space
Stay in Faith as the Lord leads
We, in a great harvest
Each day I am learning to walk into my destiny, to see the Lion and the Lamb. “Speak, Lord, I’m listening.”
Are you listening and walking your journey to attest to God’s Glory and receive His peace and power? I pray so.
“The joy of the Lord is your strength.”

“Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”
This concept from Matthew 7:19-20 seems rather harsh and deserves some attention.
From a woman’s perspective, the feminine nature is firstly to bring life out of her womb.
“The woman’s soul,” says Saint Edith Stein, “is fashioned as a shelter in which other souls may unfold.”
Men also have an important role in calling women to live fruitfully. From their seed bears the gifts of righteousness and protection for mothers and their children.
“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.”
Thank you Lord for calling men and women to live fruitfully in building the Body of Christ on earth.
