Strained Peas or Smucker’s Hot Fudge?

 
Gerber’s strained peas straight out of the baby food jar may not be your favorite food, but my 9-mo. old loves them! I much prefer Smucker’s fudge topping straight out of the jar. Hi! My name is Lisa Wilt, author of Windows of Wonder, with a one-minute WOW Word to lighten your load.  From Garrett’s perspective room temperature smashed peas with no salt and no butter are yummy. We gag at the thought. Our tastes change providing us with perspective of how our “tastes” will change when we experience heaven. Here on Earth we have what I call “The Strained Pea Mentality” as we strain to see heaven. But the Bible tells us “No eye has seen, no ear heard, no the mind has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him.” So today when you enjoy your favorite food, let it remind you that the most scrumptious stuff is yet to come! 

Yabba Dabba Doo

As Fred Flintstone says Yaba-daba-do! Hi! My name is Lisa Wilt, author or Windows of Wonder with a one-minute WOW Word to lighten your load.  We recognize Fred Flintstone by his voice, but do we recognize our Good Shepherd by His voice? The cool thing about sheep is that they know their shepherd’s voice and only follow him. Sheep from many shepherds sleep mixed together in the same enclosure, but when the gate was open in the morning, they’re easily separated. All a shepherd has to do is call HIS flock out of the pen and into the pasture by calling them to follow. Jesus is our Good Shepherd and He wants us to follow Him. He tells us that He comes that we may have life and have it to the full.  So, let’s spend time with Jesus so we know His voice better than Yabba Dabba Doo’s.

Softer than Silk~Stronger than Steel

Silk and steel have a lot in common. Both are strong but…Pound for pound, silk is actually stronger than steel. Hi! My name is Lisa Wilt, author of Windows of Wonder with a one-minute WOW Word to lighten your load! I love the feel of sheer silk. And I have to smile knowing it’s stronger than steel pound for pound. Since silk is lightweight, it’s perfect for body armor for officers and soldiers. Today I was reading in the book of James that we are to consider hard trials a “sheer gift” because trials make us stronger and more resilient! So while I appreciate soft silk, I am learning to appreciate hard trials. They make us strong. Together with God, we can be a gift to others like silk…strong yet soft!

Are you short on time…feel short changed or short tempered?

We all know that Zacchaeus was a wee little man who climbed into a sycamore tree. Hi! My name is Lisa Wilt, author of Windows of Wonder with a one-minute WOW Word to lighten your load! I love this story because it gives us a peek inside the heart of Jesus. Zacchaeus was a short man, who was short-sighted, and would short others, when collecting trumped up taxes. But… Jesus looked at what he could become, not what he had been. Just as Jesus saw Zacchaeus, He sees you! And just as He called Zacchaeus by name, JESUS is calling you by name. You may feel shorton time. And there may be times you were short-sighted or even shorted others, but Jesus want to be invited to your house today! 

No Free Lunch?


My Dad always said, “In this world there’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Hi! My name is Lisa Wilt, author of Windows of Wonder with a one-minute WOW Word to lighten your load.   My dad might be right about FREE lunches in the world. But when it comes to the gift of salvation, it’s out of this world. And it’s truly free.  Even still some believethat if their good deeds outweigh our bad deeds, they will earn heaven. Yet God tells us that it’s not by our works but by His grace that we’re saved. Salvation is a gift. It’s too expensive for us ever to be able to afford, which is why Jesus paid the price. Salvation is the greatest gift of all and it here for all who ask!

Make your “Forever Stamp” leaving a legacy of L-O-V-E

Stamps now have something in common with love. Hi! My name is Lisa Wilt, author of Windows of Wonder with a one-minute WOW Word to lighten your load!  Even if postage rates increase, Forever Stamps last “forever” just like love! We’re told in the Bible that: “Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and LOVE-and the greatest of these is Love.” When Jesus was asked about the most important command, He summarized all 613 Old Testament commands, telling us simply to: “Love God with our whole heart, mind and soul and love our neighbors as ourselves.” Sometimes we make living our faith more difficult than it needs to be. L–O–V–E. Four letters that spell one word! Make your forever stamp on this world, leaving a legacy of love!

Eyes have lids…Ears don’t!

 
Eyes have lids so that you can close them. Ears don’t! Hi! My name is Lisa Wilt, author of Windows of Wonder with a one-minute WOW Word to lighten your load! Even though ears don’t have lids, our kids can sure close them. Truth be known, I’m God’s child and I can close my ears to Him. But this morning, I heard Him loud and clear on my phone. (I listen to a Bible ap when I exercise.) Today’s Proverb hit home because I needed a pick-me-up! “Joyful are those who listen to me.” That’s six words that put bounce back in my step. “Joyful are those who listen to me.” If you need more JOY, then find ways to listen to God. This radio station helps me hear God! Spending time in nature does too. No matter where we are, we can listen to God. After all, our ears don’t have lids!
