CYNDI'S BLOG INSPIRATION

Songwriting is such a huge part of who I am, but I also enjoy writing short meditations and lessons learned along the way.  These often present themselves in everyday situations, and if I'm listening, I can hear or see what God is teaching me.  I share them in this blog, with the hope that they will speak into your heart, encourage you to watch for God in the moments He gives us, and that you will feel the wonder of His patient, loving heart - ready to reveal new treasures and pour out His blessings when our eyes are on Him!

I recently bought a new…

God's "Green Room"

God’s “Green Room”

God is the ultimate “recycler”!  He uses everything we experience or journey through to shape us, teach us and equip us for future encounters.  He is often preparing us even when we don’t realize it.  Nothing is…

Praise Anyway!

 

Well, it's May 2nd, but spring seems very far away right now!  Snowing the last two days, and our once dry yard is now covered in a new blanket of heavy, wet snow!  In everything give thanks, right?!  We can…

Filling up at the Well

This song expresses what I’ve been experiencing of late.  The deep need for more of God, and my awareness of my complete dependence on Hm.

In the Carpenter's Shop

 

 

 

Lately I’ve been working on some small wooden scroll-saw projects for Christmas gifts.  It’s a time consuming process, depending on how much detail is involved in the pattern.  Usually, I trace the design onto the wood using carbon paper.  Then…
