May the Prince of Peace bring us peace, may useless activity and chaos cease, as hearts and minds overflow with God’s grace, and we share that peace in every place. This excerpt is from Monday of week one from Peaceful Moments of Love and Light, a new 52-week daily devotional by Connie Arnold, which has recently been released by RPJ and Company in paperback and hardcover, both in full color.

 

This is a lovely addition to her other RPJ books, ...

Song of Spring

A song of life bursts forth each spring

As new life starts to arise,

And the dance begins to rouse everything

With hibernating, still sleepy eyes.


This is an excerpt of “Song of Sprin...

Message in a Shell

Message in a Shell

 

This lovely curved shell in my hand is called a whelk. A wide cone top tapers down to a slender tail. From the top I see a dot that widens in a circle - ever enlarging, extending outward. Each layer of the rings becomes wider until abruptly, in perfect artistry, the shell itself ends. My finger glides down the smooth under belly of the shell, which glistens softly where once the life existed. The outer surfaces are ridged and ...

What Will You Do?

What will you do with this special day,

This year with a brand new start?

Did you gain any knowledge along the way

In the past year that you can impart?


Did you learn anything from errors you made
To share with others to help them learn?

Did you know as the old year...

Sufficient Grace

Sufficient Grace 
        

I have been abandoned and abused, but I am not alone.

I have sinned, but I am not condemned.

I have repeatedly failed, but, praise the Lord, I am not defeated.

I have been broken, but only to fulfill God’s purpose in me.


I can forgive because I have been forgiven.

I can smile because I have hope.

I can sing because I have fait...

Hidden Miracle by Connie Arnold

Hidden Miracle

 

A miracle is waiting, hidden and concealed,

Waiting for the time when it can be revealed.

Filled with hope and promise of what it soon will be,

Unseen, not heard or felt, as yet a mystery.

It's hidden in a seed, buried in the ground,

Awaiting the time when it's potential will be found.

It's also in a bulb that will one day be a flower,

And the water that will nourish it in a spri...

It is Morning in My Heart

It is Morning in My Heart

I wake up in the morning

and my heart is beating fast.

I feel the presence of the Lord

and I know I'm His at last.

 

His joy fills my heart

as the sunlight fills my room

I remember what He did for me

when He rose up from the tomb.

 

He's in control of all my life

He has been there from the start

And whatever this day holds

A Glimpse of God's Grace by Connie Arnold

A Glimpse of God's Grace

To catch a glimpse of God's grace

We need only to look around,

At any time or in any place

Evidence of God's grace may be found,

Just look at the world around you

And you will see this is true.

The rosy beauty of sunrise

At the start of a fresh new day

As sunlight reaches wakening eyes,

Chasing the darkness away,

Then we can slowly grow conscious of

God's grace a...

God's Gift of Love by Pat Elston

God’s Gift of Love

God sent us His gift of love

Wrapped up in a baby small

He came to give His life for us

And save us one and all.

And Jesus walked among us

To show us how to live

But no one seemed to understand

How much He had togive.

And then He died uponthe cross

To pay the price for sin.

He rose again and now He lives

He comes to live within.

His Holy Spirit fills us

And...
