God tells you he loves you without using words.

Randy and I got home a few days ago from a 3-week vacation. We went to Michigan where we visited Randy’s family and picked up the new travel trailer we had purchased. We camped first in Grand Haven (MI) with some of the Moon clan, then went to Glacier National Park (MT) for a week.

God’s creation is amazing. Surrounded by its beauty, it was all I could do to keep from singing out loud, “How Great Thou Art.” 

O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
(by Stuart Keene Hine)

We read about God’s love in words and stories from the Bible.  The world we live in -- the universe, the galaxy -- is another way we know God loves us. We “read” his love in the “words” of his creation, too.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
(Psalm 19:1-4)

May you see, hear, read, and know God’s love through the incredible world we live in.

What can I pray about for you?

love and blessings,


What is this email?? A while back, I had an idea. I was thinking of some friends I wanted to pray for, but I didn't have a specific thing to pray about on their behalf. I decided to pray that they would feel God's love. I decided to send them an email when I prayed, so they'd know and be encouraged. Then I thought about my many other family and friends who I would like to encourage with prayer, and decided to start this email.
    Two things I try to do:
-- Encourage you with a reminder of God's love. My goal is to avoid anything where the response is "I should..." Just a short reflection of God's love.
-- Pray for you. I'll pray with each email, and please reply to me with anything you'd specifically like me to pray for you. I'll keep it confidential, don't worry..
.     If you would like to send me specific prayer requests, I will gladly pray with you. You may email me at mavis at I'll keep all communication confidential.
