knees to the earth

knees to the earth.

praying the past few days for so many different things and people.

wanderers.

searchers.

strugglers and stragglers.

situations that seems hopeless...circumstances that surprise...

on my knees. my heart is on its knees.

pray without ceasing.

never never give up. 

God is listening- more than that, He is at work even when i do not see.

his word has all the promises i need to hold on to, and when i grow weary, i just relax and rest in His bottomless reservoir of truth. 

he said it, i believe it, that settles it.

knees to the earth...in worship, in work. 

prayer is the work of the church, someone said.

he sees my attitude of prayer, whether i'm driving, cooking, bathing a little brown girl, exercising, writing, shopping...

he sees my heart- on its knees.

just spit out the seeds...




this is a lovely tropical fruit called "atis" here in the Philippines.

i don't know what it is in English.

when you open it, delicious soft white grainy flesh surrounds big black seeds. you have to be careful when eating it that the seeds don't slip down your throat.

but...it's delicious.

you just have to spit out the seeds.

sometimes life is like that.

beautiful and nutritious, but with tricky bits.

i actually took this photo, believe it or not.

it reminds me to chew life slowly and carefully, savor the sweetness of its fruit, and spit the seeds out.
