DIVINE SAFETY: THE LORD WATCHES OVER US!

Photography by: Linda Mose Meadows
Fun Day at Virginia Beach 7/2009






So we praise God for the wonderful kindness he has poured out on us
because we belong to his dearly loved Son.
Ephesians 1:6

I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.
Psalm 89:1

The Lord says, “I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.”
Isaiah 49:16



I am pleased to share that this is my photography. This picture was snapped at Virginia Beach this past weekend. While Ricky was assembling and then flying his Father’s Day kite, I was enjoying snapping pictures. I enjoy the many features of my new camera, and really do appreciate the revealed messages God sends my way when I am observing our daily activities. This just wasn’t an ordinary day at the beach is what I am confident the Holy Spirit is conveying.




Take a close look at the picture, what is it you see? Yes, it’s surely a fun day at the beach? But, not only do I see a little guy enjoying the water and the thrill of trying to jump over the rushing waves, but it’s apparent that a crashing stream of water is headed towards him-much too big for his little legs to handle. The little fella is really having a ball and probably can’t comprehend the possible danger. He’s too immature to understand the consequences of being in an ocean without his safety gear. But the little guy can be assured that a safety net is at arm’s length!



Love is standing by! I am not sure if it’s his “PaPa”, Papa or Grand Pop (endearing term for my Grandfather Ellsworth) or if it’s his uncle or his father! But whoever it is, it’s a father figure standing by on alert! This adult is eagerly watching and ready to intervene with a helping hand when necessary. I thought about our Heavenly Father who is watching over us continually. And, yes when we especially are in harm’s way, or in a fog; too preoccupied with the world matters to know any better. Remember being too caught –up in the moment? I do, been there and done that! Aren’t you glad that God has your back? We can trust that we are His own!



"Thank you, Jesus!" This is what my spirit is proclaiming! Your redemptive power and salvation belong to us as believers.
My friends, embrace that God is ever ready-He’s prepared to rescue and protect when need be. We are like all the children playing, twirling and jumping and surfing in the crashing waters, unaware that this world is a turbulent playground, but assured we are alright! Just know in your heart and soul God’s reaching out to you; why not allow His protection to keep you?

LET'S TANGO AT THE 2nd CUP!

There's joy in dancing!












Wonderful owner: Kat!









2nd Cup Restaurant and Cafe
36 Broadway
Buffalo, NY
716-840-0048

Friends, I don't know of many places where you can enjoy delicious cafe' fare, learn the Tango and jam to a Latin Jazz band! Do you? Well, in the heart of downtown Buffalo, New York is a delightful, locally owned and operated business where you can do all of the above. The owners are Will and Kat Tyler they've got fun down to a science. They will entreat you to a very unique experience of entertainment and dining and it won't totally empty your wallet. Not only is the food great and the customer service sweet, but the venues are super! Wednesday to Saturday's are popping! They will host and cater your event from a tribute or a booksigning to a festive Carribean celebration-be as creative as you wish. Need music, they'll book live bands that will have you and your guests swinging, jumping and thumping on the dance floor. Anyhow, that evening of Tango dancing was off the fun richter scale and there was no cover charge. We danced the night away with new acquaintances, attempted some new dance moves and munched on some scrumptuous food. In between the musical selections we quenched our thirsts with peach and tropical smooties and laughed our hearts happy. This was truly a great week day evening!
When I return to Buffalo the 2nd cup will certaily be one of our frequent stops! And next time maybe I'll have a cup of chi tea with my slice of four layer chocolate cake!

Oops, almost forgot, be sure to visit their other location:
The EM Tea Coffee Cup Cafe @
80 Oakgrove Ave.
