Love Is Stronger

17 May

I’ve oftened wondered why there is so much divide and discontent in our country. We are so divided that friends are fighting each other over the littlest things.

I don’t care if you are someone who leans right or left or stays in the middle, one thing for certain is you are an individual just like everyone else in this country. Also each and everyone of us has the same God given rights and in our case they are guaranteed by our Constitution.

God given rights! God also gave us commandments to love each other as ourselves, not just love those who agree with your thinking. Our country was founded on the understanding that all are created equal, regardless of race, color, sexual orientation, left handed or right handed so where does the right come to talk down or bad about those who don’t follow your individual standards. The funny thing is you probably don’t follow theirs either. Neither makes one right or wrong.

It is time we, as a country, wake up and realize what God has been teaching us throughout our entire life… that is to love one another and use that love to build bridges not walls. In the end everyone will, sooner at or later, realize that love is stronger than all this hate.

Walk daily with God at you side!

Love always,

Ed

Soft Whispers In The Wind

2 May

As I sit here is quiet solitude having my afternoon conversation with Father, I hear these soft whispers in the wind and feel a gentle tug on my heart. His guidance is so gentle, yet I can feel His strength as He moves me in the direction of the chosen path.

Living in continuous conversation with God has made my life full and blessed. My every need is met and I am blessed to be able to share His love with all I meet. His hands have sheltered me throughout my life and He has taught me to love life and all His creatures. I would say this is why I am at home with nature.

I wonder if Bob Dylan saw this when he wrote the song “Blowing in the wind” back in 1963. God answers our prayers and questions all the time, it’s just that most times we just don’t take the time to listen. When I feel that little tug on my heart and hear those soft whispers in my ear, I know He is talking to me.

Life is full of little miracles, if you don’t feel that look up, He will show you. Listen to His wisdom and follow the path He has set out for you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
