Midnight Musings






"A good remedy for cynicism
and most other negative 
attitudes that can easily creep
into our hearts is humility."
-David Brickner
Executive Director of Jews For Jesus





"Ride The Wind" Irises







“You can never learn that Christ is all you need,
 until Christ is all you have.”
-Corrie ten Boom


Corrie ten Boom
15 April 1892 – 15 April 1983



 A Dutch Christian and righteous gentile,
Corrie and her family were imprisoned for
 helping Jews escape from the Nazis.  
 Corrie was later sent to the
Ravensbruck labor camp in Germany,
where, shortly before the end of the war,
she was released from the camp,
"by mistake" with a group of
younger women.
The story of her
 incredible faith and courage
in the face of appalling evil was
 later re-told in her book.
"The Hiding Place"




"He has made everything beautiful 
in it's time....

Zebra Swallowtail  and Lilacs

... He has also planted eternity
in men's hearts and minds,
a divinely implanted sense of purpose
working through the ages which 
nothing under the sun but
God alone can satisfy,
yet so that men cannot find out
what God has done from
the beginning to the end."
Ecclesiastes 3:11






"For me, prayer is a surge of the heart;
 it is a simple look turned toward heaven,
 it is a cry of recognition and of love, 
embracing both trial and joy.”
Saint Therese of  Lisieux



Marie Francoise Therese Martin
2 January 1873- 30 September 1897





Apple Trees In Bloom



Be a ray of sunshine everywhere you go,
Shining for the Savior with a steady glow;
Bringing smiles to sad ones, wiping tears away,
Make yourself a blessing every passing day.


Be a ray of sunshine everywhere you go,
Shining for the Savior with a steady glow;
Be a ray of sunshine filled with Heaven’s light,
Sending forth a message beautiful and bright.

Be a ray of sunshine everywhere you go;
Comfort bring to others, stoop to raise the low;
Kind words cost but little, smiles bring pleasures, too;
They may lift a burden; let them not be few.


Be a ray of sunshine everywhere you go;
Cheerfulness is needed, this you can bestow;
Help to chase the shadows from this world away,
Bringing joy and gladness like a shining ray.


Be a ray of sunshine everywhere you go;
Stars will shine the brighter in your crown, I know;
Sunshine brought to others will reflect on you,
Heav’n will be the sweeter—keep the end in view.
Anna B. Russell
