What does your life look like on canvas? What type of frame does others place around your life?
The Daily Lily, which is you and me on canvas, gather here with our trumpets and make a loud noise by “Trumpeting Faith, Giving Hope, and Serving Others with Love!” We are needed on the worldwide web and in every little corner of the world we visit daily to “Trumpet our Faith, Give Hope to the weary while Serving Others with Love.” Ones that may feel loveless, lonely, and discouraged. And, rightly so! When we read or hear worldwide news, face financial crisis, job layoffs and recession alarms that are ringing around the world it feels hopeless. I just heard today that Chrysler says ” it will cut 25 percent of its salaried work force starting next month. The company says the cuts are in addition to those previously announced and will be done through involuntary layoffs and voluntary retirements and buyouts.” Just another piece to the larger puzzle of trouble for the “average Joe.”

every word, deed and action one takes or does or receives.
A light in the cellar. A light in the attic. A light in the kitchen. A light on the night stand. The porch Light. And, the red light districts even know the power of light.
The light from the eyes reveal the intent of the soul. The light of the mind shines bright in words and actions. The heart (light) wattage is stamped on a heart valve. Then of course the 3-way bulb gives shades of light on our words, deeds and actions.
Do you know your wattage, color, and use? Matthew 25, informs us, ” You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand_shine! Keep open house, be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.” Message vs.15.16

Chris and Tammy have just returned from the tulip fields of Holland. For the ones of us that are just seeing the beginnings of spring and planning of our gardens, or the ones of us, like myself, that only dreams about gardens we might enjoy Chris and Tammy’s photos. Looking at the beauty of the fields in Holland makes one wonder could heaven be any more beautiful. Yet, I believe it must be.

From off thy feet
For the ground upon which thou standest is Holy
Burning, yet not consumed
Even the air about him is permeated with Holiness
Fire and Flames display the Beauties of Holiness…Exodus 3:2-6
