Songs of the Angels

April 16, 2014

freedom thoughts


Music of the angels,

Sounds resonating

Outside my window.

Peace, joy, praise

Calms my body

And uplifts my soul.

A bark,

A tweet,

A clap of thunder.

Love of God,

Nature . . . nurture  . . .

Comes in all shapes and sizes.

He made and loves them all.

He’s Got This

March 6, 2014


The rain continues to pour

As darkness claims the sky


I looked up

And saw through a crack in a cloud

That the sun is still near.

Hope rises.

Joyous Departure

March 4, 2014

Sometimes the list is so long

And the clouds depart

Leaving a burst of sun

After such a long damp spell.

So, today I did nothing

And it was EVERYTHING.

I enjoyed the Son

And thanked Him.

Blindly Believing – A Word For Today

February 2, 2014
When you believe even though you cannot feel it or see it and even though the voice of deceit insists all are against you, your belief WILL be an instrument of change. Hold tightly to it.



A Word To Share

February 1, 2014
A willing spirit transcends the limitations of the human mind and body yet through this the Lord blesses all three.

Defining Passion

January 30, 2014


I quake in your presence

All the day long,

though I feel no fear.

You fill me



And spirit,

Yet I hunger for more of you.

Awake . .  .  asleep,

In darkness or  light

Your face I see,

But my quest for you is,

In this world,

Without end.

Love transcends the veil.

Blessings From The Compost Heap

January 22, 2014

I sit here seeing only ruin around me and being unable to climb out of its vastness and praying somehow His purpose in it will come to fruition.   I realize I may not see His purpose but there is peace to be found in knowing He uses all things.  As I did a bit of reading just now, this quote came to me:

All the flowers of tomorrow are the seeds of today.

- Anonymous -

It seems in life there are times when we, or I, are called to be the compost nourishing the seeds from which tomorrow’s flowers grow.  These times can be uncomfortable and even painful, but if it blesses the Lord, it is good.

A new season is coming and the flowers will bloom!


The pieces will all come together.  He will see to it.

(quilt is my work)
