Have A Verse 3 Week

(Author’s Note: I ended up with 2 posts publishing yesterday instead of one. ooopppssss!)

My friend prayed that I would be like a tree planted by water that bears much fruit. It is a wonderful thought and one I will cling to this week as it is going to be a tough one, but then every week is mentally tough when you are in between jobs. Trust me I feel like I am withering away because not everything I touch prospers.

So I will cling mightily to verse 3 of this Psalm this week and always. Along with Isaiah 43:19. 

May you have a Verse 3 kind of week and life.

Psalm 1

Blessed is the one
    who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff
    that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,

   but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

Wednesday Wisdom: Angel Thoughts

(Author’s notes: Taking a break today from the Poetry writing challenge and sharing a little gem of a poem I found while research joy and grief poems. Enjoy!  I will hopefully have a Limerick for you on Friday.)



“If you give up when it’s deep winter,

you’ll surely miss the promise of your Spring,

the beauty of your Summer


and the fulfillment of your Fall.


Don’t let the pains of one season
overshadow the joys of the rest of the year.
Try not to judge life
by one difficult season;
cherish instead
the exceptional seasons
given you in love.”

Unemployment, Weekend Wisdom

Weekend Wisdom: Rescued

One of my devotions this week was based on Psalm 18.

The following verses resonated with me.

May you find comfort and joy in these verses whether you are grieving, unemployed or going through another type of nasty life event.

16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me;

    he drew me out of deep waters.
17 He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
    from my foes, who were too strong for me.
18 They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
    but the Lord was my support.
19 He brought me out into a spacious place;
    he rescued me because he delighted in me.
