Help Me to See
Lord, help me to see
As I look around
Your presence with me
Waiting to be found.
Help me be aware
Of your gifts every day,
Seeking always to share
In some special way.
Give light to my eyes,
Put a smile on my face
As I recognize
The signs of your grace.
Lord, please guide my feet
To find my way through
Obstacles I may meet,
Showing me what to do.
Help me see good things
You’ve sent from above,
The blessings life brings,
The gift of your love.

A little time for silence should be taken every day,
With the world of confusion shut away...

Worry approaches like a thief,
Stealing all hope from the soul,
Robbing our peace and tranquility,
Distracting us from our goal...

Love Notes from God
Abundant Comfort and Grace Showcases Connie Arnold's Gift that is so Good It's Easy to Take Her Writing for Granted
review by Julie Arduini, The Surrendered Scribe
The Cypress Times review
Connie Arnold has that gift that is such a gift, it would be easy to take her and her writing for granted. There is so much more than poetry to her writing. Connie has a knack of being a vessel God uses to speak to the reader and in my case, calm me down and remember what's right and Who is in control.
Not long ago I had the pleasure of reviewing her book, Abiding Hope and Love. Connie has a new book out with amazing pictures by Gary Strader. The book, Abundant Comfort and Grace, is a love letter from God to you. Connie has categories for the poems and each category, every poem is a little love note from our Heavenly Father. I quickly went from blogger reviewing a book to a subdued daughter of God soaking up His presence. Again, that speaks volumes to the gift Connie Arnold has as a writer.
This is a book worth having not just for yourself, but passing along to someone you think deserves a gift to lift their spirits or encourage them. I highly recommend this book!
Here is the table of contents to give you a glimpse inside Abundant Comfort and Grace.

Poetry that soothes the soul. No matter what trials or tribulation you are going through this poetry will bring one spirit into comfort by Grace. Beautifully illustrated with pictures it brings life to each poem. I give this book 5 stars. It places peace in the dark void of the heart. Some of my favorite poems are; On God We Can Rely, A Glimpse of God's Grace, Individual Value, Acting As Mirrors, and Clinging Like Ivy. There is something for everyone in this book. It is a breath of fresh air.
