It’s so easy to fall in love with nature when we live in the Northlands here in Minnesota.  Once again I have chosen for my CD cover a painting by my brother, artist Ryan Millen.  Not just because of the majestic mountains, or the towering forest of trees, or the still, small stream.  It’s because I’m drawn into the painting by that little path that meanders through the woods.  I can picture myself walking there alone, and it’s so easy to fall in love with God all over again because I am part of His creation, too.  Alone with God, He’s all I hear….

Thank you for your patience 🙂  My mom hasn’t gone to assisted living yet, so I am still very busy with her personal needs.

I’ve been listening to Avalon’s song, “Can’t Live A Day”, and I just felt I wanted to share the lyrics to the chorus:

“I couldn’t face my life tomorrow without Your hope in my heart.  I know I can’t live a day without You, Lord. There’s no night and there’s no morning without Your loving arms to hold me.  You’re the heartbeat of all I do.  I can’t live a day without You!”

I love Him so much.  It’s my prayer that you come to know His love the same way that He loves you.

As a child growing up I remember that my family moved very often, even as much as every other year.

Sometimes at night I would awaken in a fearful panic, because I didn’t know where I was at or what house I was in.

Then in the darkness of night, I would hear my father snoring.  Just like that, I could feel myself calm down.  I knew that if my father was snoring, then all was safe in the house no matter where we were living, and I could fall back to sleep.

Some nights I would give anything to hear my father snoring again. Sometimes I still wake up in a fearful panic from troubles of the day.

Then in the darkness of night, I whisper the name of Jesus, and my heavenly Father breathes peace into my troubled heart.  He doesn’t snore because He never sleeps.  He’s always watching over me, and I can fall back to sleep.
