Welcome

Why a blog from me, someone who has never been a writer, someone who has never been articulate or had a solid grasp of the grammar world. Because God told me to write. Several years ago a life storm invaded my family. God kept telling me to write it all down. I argued, but He would not let up. This went on every day for a couple of weeks until one day out of frustration, (I'd like to say it was out of obedience), I picked up a pen and paper and wrote for 7 hours straight! Do you think maybe I needed therapy and God knew it?

I've been writing ever since and have learned to love it! I started out sharing my stories with friends and family. I've now been published in a Nashville church paper, Our Daily Journey (a devotional site of RBC Ministries), PCCWeb Daily Devotional, Ruby for Women Ezine Magazine, and I am a contributor in the book Alabaster Jars, Life in Abundance Collection 2.

Why Ponderings? During this life storm, God led me to a pond in the woods behind my home. There He met me each time, teaching new lessons, reminding me of old ones, showing His presence and allowing me to feel His love through the surroundings of that pond. I found myself returning over and over to ponder, pray and praise. A healing of my heart took place and out of the experience came my first book, Ponderings From the Pond, then a second book, Ponderings From My Porch, and now a third book is in the works along with a memoir about my storm.

Why am I making myself so vulnerable? Because God has done so much that I cannot keep quiet. I have to share. Jesus's last words to his desciples were, "Go,tell." We are his disciples too and this is just one of my ways of telling.

I'm no scholar but I have heard God's voice in my spirit, experience His love daily, and have a desire for others to experience this also. I would love to share with all who visit and I would love to hear from you. If my sharing gets just one to ponder, to be quiet with the Father, to see and hear from Him or to be reminded of something from Him, then this is worth my vulnerability.

As you visit me, sometimes we will be at the pond, sometimes we will move to the front porch, and sometimes we will just be here, there, and yonder. Thank you for coming and please feel free to come back anytime, you are always welcome here.

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Psalm 19:14

Martin Luther King, Jr./Guest Post


I have invited a guest post today. I met him last summer while I was downtown interviewing the homeless for my book.  Today's guest is not homeless, he is a wonderful poet and Christian that I just happen to meet while downtown one day and we started talking with each other.  He shared one of his poems with me.  I was so impressed that my husband and I went back downtown one evening to make a u-tube of this man reciting one of his poems.
Today in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. day, I invited my new friend to come onto my blog to share his thoughts on this great man.
Please meet my friend, Mr Kevin Bell, the Poet Man

 I See Your Dream

This great man I speak of is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. a man of God. His greatest battles and triumph was to fight the oppressors of this world for every man, woman, boy and girl. With his vigorous approach of non vio...lence by all means necessary, was the ultimate goal. Through his famous speech that rings in the heart and mind of the many people that he touched around the world. "I Have A Dream" what this tells and what this means is a sign of a revelation from God through Dr. King.

 Because of unjust laws and the act of violence against fellow life , an unjust man took the life of such a great man. On his mission he never meant any harm to anyone on the face of the earth. His aim, his goal and mission in life was to do the work and the will of Almighty God. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. knew the Christ within himself and that was enough to elevate him in becoming a great man in the eyes of God.

 To such a man the color of a person's skin did not matter the condition of the mind is what was important to him. Quote "I Have A Dream" have brought people together from all walks. A sympathetic heart has not color; in it is a sign to say I care. All humans have feelings and they can show compassion for one another; this is common and a natural thing for all human beings to embrace. It is when we teach against the morals and principalities of life we are bitter, we hate, and we have no love for one another.

A man on a mission through his life to bring to the reality of the condition that the masses of the people are confused about the true glory of God. We are all entitled to live but to deny the least human being the opportunity to evolve to their fullest potential as a servant to God and a service to humanity to help the human family is a shame. In honor and memory of the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. HAPPY BIRTHDAY I love you Dr. King quote unquote I See Your Dream.

kevin...thanks for sharing your heart..."I love this line and may we all walk this ...no matter the skin color...the position in life...young or old......a person's skin did not matter the condition of the mind is what was important to him."
This line is so true..."It is when we teach against the moral and principalities of life we are bitter,we hate,and we have no love for one another."
May today continue to remind us that God's Love triumphs over all...
Blessings to you Kevin. it is nice to meet you here.

We all know him as K.B. and have known that he has something special inside. I like this part "Martin Luther King Jr. knew the Christ within himself and that was enough to elevate him in becoming a great man in the eyes of God." That same Christ can elevate all of us to become fully human.

Right On K.B.
