On the wings of a dove

In nature, light creates the color. In the picture, color creates the light.
~ Hans Hofmann

I'm still in a sense of awe over God's timing over the last few months!   The provision at the just exactly the right time (if it was one year earlier, or one year later it would of not helped) and the miracle it all was.  I have even been up at night thinking about it, how my grandmother was, (she really was a saint and that's freaking me out a little) and Gods timing of it all!

I think it all really came to me after yesterday at work, I usually get the coffee for an elderly coworker and me which leaves her alone to handle things for a short 15 or 20 minute window.  

It wasn't long after I returned that the space heater we were using caught fire.  With a very quick response, I was able to put it out immediately.   

If I wasn't there... 

God's timing is everything!

 Never early, never late.

"On The Wings Of A Dove"

 "What wings are to a bird, 

and sails to a ship, 

so is prayer to the soul."

~Corrie Ten Boom

  • My dove in the clefts of the rock, 
  • in the hiding places on the mountainside, 
  • show me your face, 
  • let me hear your voice; 
  • for your voice is sweet, 
  • and your face is lovely. 
  • Song of Solomon 2:14

“Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
 See, darkness covers the earth
    and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
    and his glory appears over you.
 Nations will come to your light,
    and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
 “Lift up your eyes and look about you:
    All assemble and come to you;
your sons come from afar,
    and your daughters are carried on the hip.
 Then you will look and be radiant,
    your heart will throb and swell with joy;
the wealth on the seas will be brought to you,
    to you the riches of the nations will come.
 Herds of camels will cover your land,
    young camels of Midian and Ephah.
And all from Sheba will come,
    bearing gold and incense
    and proclaiming the praise of the Lord.
 All Kedar’s flocks will be gathered to you,
    the rams of Nebaioth will serve you;
they will be accepted as offerings on my altar,
    and I will adorn my glorious temple.
 “Who are these that fly along like clouds,
    like doves to their nests?
 surely the islands look to me;
    in the lead are the ships of Tarshish,
bringing your children from afar,
    with their silver and gold,
to the honor of the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel,
    for he has endowed you with splendor.
 “Foreigners will rebuild your walls,
    and their kings will serve you.
Though in anger I struck you,
    in favor I will show you compassion.
 Your gates will always stand open,
    they will never be shut, day or night,
so that people may bring you the wealth of the nations
    their kings led in triumphal procession.
 For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish;
    it will be utterly ruined.
 “The glory of Lebanon will come to you,
    the juniper, the fir and the cypress together,
to adorn my sanctuary;
    and I will glorify the place for my feet.
 The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you;
    all who despise you will bow down at your feet
and will call you the City of the Lord,
    Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
 “Although you have been forsaken and hated,
    with no one traveling through,
I will make you the everlasting pride
    and the joy of all generations.
 You will drink the milk of nations
    and be nursed at royal breasts.
Then you will know that I, the Lord, am your Savior,
    your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
 Instead of bronze I will bring you gold,
    and silver in place of iron.
Instead of wood I will bring you bronze,
    and iron in place of stones.
I will make peace your governor
    and well-being your ruler.
 No longer will violence be heard in your land,
    nor ruin or destruction within your borders,
but you will call your walls Salvation
    and your gates Praise.
 The sun will no more be your light by day,
    nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you,
for the Lord will be your everlasting light,
    and your God will be your glory.

Your sun will never set again,

    and your moon will wane no more;
the Lord will be your everlasting light,
    and your days of sorrow will end.
 Then all your people will be righteous
    and they will possess the land forever.
They are the shoot I have planted,
    the work of my hands,
    for the display of my splendor.
 The least of you will become a thousand,
    the smallest a mighty nation.
I am the Lord;
    in its time I will do this swiftly.”
Isaiah 60
