Who Can Match This?

You are there and you hear me when I call out your name.

I am never disappointed; I am always amazed.

You give me clear guidance when I know not where to turn.

You make my paths straight; my horizon is clear. Continue reading

A Quote to Carry You – October 28, 2013

“Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.” Luke 11:4

To forgive:  Freedom, joy, love, prosperity, productivity, abundance, growth, vitality…life itself!  Have you ever thought about what happens when we forgive someone?  These are only a few of the things that flow out of and flourish from that simple act.   Felecia R. Weber, OntheWingofaDove.com

I bid you peace and love,

Felecia

At the End of Myself

At the End of Myself

At the end of myself…where I truly begin.

“I never voyaged so far in all my life.” Henry David Thoreau

It seems strange to say it, but I have an overwhelming sense at the moment, that I am exactly where I am supposed to be in life.  A place that has taken some time for me to reach.  It is a place that I call being at the end of myself.  Wait a minute, you may be thinking…where is she going with this?  Here, let me explain.

I suppose one would describe me as being an individual who is disciplined, hard working, driven, and not afraid to step outside of the box or to take on a challenge.  I never want to miss out on an opportunity that will allow me to improve myself, especially when it comes to my creative interests.  At the same time, there is a part of me that is vulnerable; not always so confident that I can achieve what I set out to do; not always certain that I am heading in the right direction.   Continue reading

Going Farther…

Going Farther

“Daydreaming,” photograph of my niece Leia Gabrielle

Going Farther

Long is the road that we travel in life,

From the fullness of joy, to raging anger and strife.

There are hidden pathways that lure us away,

they distract us for a season, or perhaps just one day.

Doors fling wide open, then slam closed and  tightly shut, Continue reading

“The important thing is this, to be able to sacrifice at any moment what we are, for what we can become.” Rene Dubois

This quote was printed on a scroll-style banner that was given to me years ago as a college graduation present.  I still have the banner and I am inspired by these words every time I read it.  It seems I never realize how much I have, until I am faced with the possibility of losing it.  Those times seem to be the best of times, when I am strongest and more full of hope.  Nothing lasts forever.  It’s a fine line to walk, enjoying what you have, while being ready to give it up, at any moment,  for what is best.  Something to think about…

 

Peace,

Felecia

From the Inside Out

From the Inside Out

“Into the Light,” photograph by Felecia R. Weber, OntheWingofaDove.com

We are fearfully and wonderfully made…from the inside out…

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” Psalm 139:14

Have you ever considered what it is that makes you who you are from the inside out? Have you ever sat and meditated on all of the intricacies that have come together to make you the person that you’ve become thus far? Continue reading

What Lies Within You

What Lies Within You

“Penelope Unraveling Her Work at Night.” (Detail), 1881, Dora Wheeler. Image from a page of the 2011 Desk Calendar, courtesy of The Metropolitan Museum of Art Store

What are the things that lie within you?  What are the things that make you who you are? Do you know for certain?

“Finally, brothers, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.” Philippians 4:8

What Lies Within You

Is it the beauty from the flowers that speckled the road that you traveled,

on that gorgeous afternoon last spring?

Is it the warmth of the sun that beamed down it’s blinding rays,

on that lazy day at the beach not long ago this summer?

Is it the golden, red, and purple hues that colored your view,

on that walk in the woods this very autumn? Continue reading

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Where I have been, where I am heading…the longer I live, the more I ponder such things.  Even more so, how what fills my mind fills my heart, and in turn, fills my life.  What lies within you? What shapes your thinking? What fills your heart?  It is my hope that they are the things that will provide you with everything that is good in life.

Peace,

Felecia
