As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

The Daily Light to a Frazzled Soul

At the end of a very busy week filled with emotional ups and downs and highs and lows and too many to-do's, I overslept this morning and then had a (most welcome) phone call from afar and the soup that I was serving for lunch wasn't ready and I realized that I was not going to get it all together in time to go to church. After Ron and the girls walked out the door, I sat down to "tune my heart." I opened the Daily Light on the Daily Path and soaked in these truths from the Lord of all creation, who is also, wonder of wonders, my loving Father.

Perhaps these thoughts will reach your heart too...

Thy thoughts are very deep.

We ... do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. - That ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! - My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. - Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

PSA. 92:5. Col. 1:9. Eph. 3:17 19. Rom. 11:33. Isa. 55:8,9. -Psa. 40:5.

The Daily Light on the Daily Path, November 17


  1. Oh yes. It was 26F this morning and raining. My fear got the best of me and I stayed home from church, too. No phone call or lunch not prepared nor an emotional week just the usual...fear. Wish that I had used my time as wisely as you did so thank you for sharing the Word today. Have a beautiful afternoon and I'm praying for this week to go more smoothly.

  2. Mary moments in the midst of Martha circumstances. Thank you for sharing these truths with us!

  3. IT sounds like just what you needed. And the Eph passage one of my favorites. And I love your new header!
