White Feathers ~


Psalm 91:4
New International Version (NIV)

4    He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

Dearest Jesus,

Thank You for covering me with your beautiful feathers,

and under your wings; just wondering, are they white Oh Lord?,

Your wings, keep me safe as I walk, as you are my refuge,

Your faithfulness is so beautiful to me that you are 

this way to me and to others as well,

Thank you for being my shield, protecting me at every door

I pass through.

Renewal Of Your Mind ~

Bonjour ~~

Romans 12:2
New International Version

2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Dearest Jesus,

Lead me as I am like the trail of a gown following behind you,

Place me wherever you want be to be, even if in the middle of a field,

Thank you for opening the door to my heart,

and letting me walk in

to be joined with you forever !

Amen ~

Hearing Birds & Hearing God ~


Romans 10:17

New International Version (NIV)
17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.

Oh Lord, let me see and know

Open the door, enter my heart, and speak the truth to me

let me taste and know

whether I really did hear you say

"You can draw birds"

Let me have faith to endure and trust you wholeheartedly

Seattle Rock & Roll Half~Marathon

Bonjour ~~

Today was the perfect day for a run, a perfect day to run the Seattle Rock & Roll Half~Marathon.  The weather was cool and cloudy. I sometimes giggle inside because the weather forecast was for rain, and it was raining when I left this morning to drive into Seattle for the race.  I have a tendency to pray for just about everything so Yep, I prayed this morning and asked God to please let the weather be free of rain during the race.  Yep, in my heart, I feel God is so so good.  After parking my car, and exiting the parking garage, it had stopped raining, (it had been raining hard too).  The whole race there was no rain. Whether one says, it is just the weather, I like to believe in my heart that God answers prayers.  Thank you Jesus for a great race for all runners today here in the great Pacific Northwest.   Also, yesterday at the Expo, some ladies were selling these cute little shoe jewels that you place your shoestrings through.  I could not resist the little jeweled pink ones with the number "13.1" on it.    If you would like to know more about why I named my blog Pearl 13.1 read the section under my profile.   

Bisous, et que Notre Seigneur Jesus Christ te Benisse~

Kisses, and may the Lord Jesus Christ bless You~

2 Timothy 4: 7-8

7  I have fought the good fight,  I have finished the race,

I have kept the faith.

8  Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness,

which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day ~

and not only to me,

but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

"Sweet Love" Table

Bonjour ~

A "Sweet Love" drop leaf table for you ~~~~  It is an old blue table that I found that was rickety.  My Dad who was visiting for my daughter's graduation helped fix the legs that were ready to fall off.  (He taught me a few things about putting nails in the right spot in order to keep the legs from falling out again) We appreciate you Dad and Love you.    I have been thinking about the old blue table which I had already painted white, so I distressed it a little with a handy dandy sander and added some words "Sweet Love" and also tried painting a little bird on the top.    The sweet love is inspired by the bible verse Psalm 69:16  ~~ Thank You Jesus for your "Sweet Love"!

Bisous, et que Notre Seigneur Jesus Christ te Benisse~

Kisses, and may the Lord Jesus Christ Bless You~~~

Psalm 69:16

Hear and answer me,

O Lord,

for Your loving - kindness

 is sweet

and comforting;

According to your plenteous tender mercy

and steadfast love

turn to me.

Fragrance of Flowers ~

Bonjour ~

My daughter Kayla received many bouquets of flowers for her graduation.  I have been enjoying the sweet fragrance filling my house ever since.  I am actually quite amazed at how the scent fills the air everywhere. I guess I never have had so many flowers in my house at one time; Oh the luxury of sweet smelling flowers.

Thank you Jesus for flowers.

Bisous, et que Notre Seigneur Jesus Christ te benisse ~

Kisses, and may the Lord Jesus Christ bless you ~

2 Corinthians 2: 14-15

14  But Thanks be To God,

Who In Christ  always lead us in triumph (as trophies of Christ's victory)

and through us spreads and makes evident 

the fragrance of the knowledge

of God everywhere,

15  For we are the sweet fragrance of Christ (which exhales) unto God,

(discernible alike) among those are being saved 

and among

those who are perishing.

The Flight Of Graduation

Bonjour ~~~

My daughter, Kayla graduated from high school on Friday June 15.  The whole time I felt as though flying and wings were the theme to be.  With my Mom and Dad, visiting from South Dakota and my sister, Gina and her family visiting from Illinois, the theme of flying even remained.  My dad is a pilot and my sister flew here for Kayla's graduation. Then for Father's Day we made a special trip to the Museum of Flight to find entertainment and words about flight and having wings.  One of my favorite bible verses is Isaiah 40:31 which is about "flying with wings like an eagle".  The theme song of Kayla's graduation was "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley which also reminds me that in life one must not worry, dream big, and let the gentle wings of peace carry you high and far in life.     As the whole weekend flew by, I was left with feelings of hope, hope that Kayla will soar like an eagle, have peace like a dove, and joy like a beautiful bird singing in the trees.  

Bious, et que Notre Seigneur Jesus Christ te benisee~

Kisses, and may the Lord jesus Christ bless You`

Isaiah 40:31

But those who hope

in the LORD

will renew 

their strength

They will soar

on wings

like eagles 

They will run

and not grow weary

They will walk

and not faint

From Leonardo da Vinci 

There shall be wings!

If the accomplishment

be not for me,

tis'  for some other. 

The Spirit 

can not die;

and man,

who shall know all

and shall have wings...
