The Girl with the Dreams

Sometimes I dress like a dork. Really. And I forget to look at myself before I leave, lol!  I have a conference this Saturday so I thought I would go find something nice to wear. Off I went to our local mall with my head in the clouds. Busy thinking about this and that and the other thing. Until I get there – and look down…ugggh!  You can see my one pink sock clashing with my one yellow sock. And my old gym shoes with my fancy leggings. I forgot to put on my boots! Oh man, yeah, here I am Ms Suzy-Q looking at all these really expensive clothes with my clashing socks.  I laughed so hard I almost peed myself!

So I did what any songwriter would do, I came home and wrote a song about it. (And no, I haven’t found what to wear yet – there is always tomorrow. Maybe I’ll wear pink and purple socks…)

The Girl with the Dreams

~Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen~
She went to the mall after dropping off the kids
Moved hanger after hanger of the latest styles
Who should she be today?
Rifling through racks trying to decide
Where was the girl with the dreams?
Was she the stay at home mom or the busy man’s wife?
What could she pick to bring everything back to life?
Where’s the girl who used to put on satin and fringe?
The girl with the dreams
She looked down at her shoes and her mismatching socks
Realized she left without putting on her boots
as she silently screamed
Can she be found in the clearance racks?
Where was the girl with the dreams?
Was she the stay at home mom or the busy man’s wife?
What could she pick to bring everything back to life?
Where’s the girl who used to put on satin and fringe?
The girl with the dreams
She saw that she wasn’t alone
there were tribes of women
all trying to be found
inbetween the designer gowns
There were stay at home moms and busy man’s wives
Bringing everything they touched back to life
They may be older but they wore satin and fringe
Girls who grew up and were living their dreams

Yahweh’s Mercy Keeps Us Safe

dianarasmussen:

Just yesterday I witnessed 2 car accidents right in front of me. God kept us safe. Thank you Lord for your mercy!

Yahweh is merciful and does not treat us as we deserve but spares and rescues us from judgment, harm, danger and trouble. His angels rescue and shields us from death, destruction and accidents. Although we might notice, many times preoccupation with our immediate concerns blinds us to the car that narrowly missed hitting us, the disease that passed by, the thwarted thief, and the gun that misfired. The love of Yahweh preserves and rescues with incredible mercy!

Yet I still dare to hope
when I remember this:
The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.
(Lamentations 3:21-23 NLT)

Hope Bubbles Over

dianarasmussen:

Learning to rejoice in our sufferings is not always easy – yet it is the only way to be BAPTIZED BY FIRE!

Originally posted on Prayers and Promises:

Hope bubbles over. Yep. Think of when you make pasta.  You start with cold water and put it on the stove.  I have a gas stove, so the fire goes on.  And watch and wait until the water boils.  The water wouldn’t boil without the flame.  Then you add some pasta and if you don’t lower the flame the water boils over right?  Those bubbles are HOPE.

Up, Up, Up, and over.

And isn’t it funny that the water has to boil before hope can bubble?

Only when it’s hot do those bubbles of Hope multiply.pasta

God is a God of Hope – not despair.

He is a God of possibilities – not impossibilities.

He is a God of life, revival and renewal – not death.

God’s Promise to You:

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you…

Angels Descending

A Word from the Lord

Shortly after the last 2 postings, I have seen for the past couple of days angels descending from heaven.  Not just a few but many. I don’t ,as of now,  see them in any particular geographic region.  I just see them coming to earth

STAND

STAND

Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen, Dedicated to Bob

When the money’s gone and the bills come in

When the sky turns black lightning, thundering

When our friends or family betray

We’re gonna forgive them anyway

 

We’re gonna get through this

We’ve been through a whole lot worse

We’re gonna get through this

Dig down deep and take my hand

Together we stand

 

When the work is long and the pay is slow

When our hair turns gray cause we’re getting old

When the kids move out to find their way

We’re gonna love our life anyway

 

We’re gonna get through this

We’ve been through a whole lot worse

We’re gonna get through this

Dig down deep and take my hand

Together we stand

 

 

They may kick they may bite

They may slander and they may fight but

 

We’re gonna get through this

We’ve been through a whole lot worse

We’re gonna get through this

Dig down deep and take my hand

Together we stand

 

 

Be careful—watch out for attacks from Satan, your great enemy. He prowls around like a hungry, roaring lion, looking for some victim to tear apart. Stand firm when he attacks. Trust the Lord; and remember that other Christians all around the world are going through these sufferings too.

 After you have suffered a little while, our God, who is full of kindness through Christ, will give you his eternal glory. He personally will come and pick you up, and set you firmly in place, and make you stronger than ever. (1 Peter 5:8-10 TLB)

Rise Up, My Love (132): Which Way Does the Wind Blow?

Originally posted on Summer Setting:

Quiet GardenSong of Solomon 4:16 “Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out.” The bride now calls out to awaken the winds. Most commentators say the north wind speaks of adversity and the south of pleasant circumstances, and conclude that every believer needs both the storms and sunshine of life to mature. The conclusion is doubtless correct (since God has universally ordained tribulation and joy for each believer), but most commentators must live to the north and west of Israel, because the Bible’s own commentaries on the wind are quite different! SS 132 Lady and Tramp Gardens in Flower PotsAccording to the Scriptures, the north wind brings fair weather (Job 37:22) and drives away the rain (Proverbs 25:23). The south wind quiets the earth (Job 37:17) and brings heat (Luke 12:55). In the land of Palestine, it is the east wind that brings rough weather (Isaiah 27:8), withers…

Rest in the Sacred Space

Rest in the Sacred Space

~Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen

Some days I have nothing to say
I can rest in our sacred space
Knowing that your love covers me
and You will lead the way
I trust Your Word my Lord
to your promises I cling
I’ve said my prayers and
I’ve held my tongue
Your peace and presence
Now You’ll bring

peace 9

Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.

He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,

But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:28-31 NKJV)
