Come!

I tremble.

You hold me close.

I sigh.

I rest.

Whether you stand in the shade,

Or in the sun,

Is not the tree still beautiful?

Viewpoint

Sunshine

And shadows . . .

So different,

Yet alike.

They share the same story

From the other side.

The Heart Makes A Choice

August 28, 2014

 

The day began with birds singing

A wakeup melody of praise.

I joined them in spirit

With words of my own

Then proceeded on with my day.

Smiling,

I made coffee

And fed my body

As my soul had been,

And smiled still.

There is turmoil all around me

And though I try

I cannot change it all

But I do not have to let it change me.

Sing  . . .

Smile . . .

Praise . .  .

I choose joy.

Soul Food

August 20, 2014

My mind can only know so much.

It is only when my soul is fed

that my life is forever changed.

DISCOVERED JOY

August 17, 2014

Sometimes . . .

You have to listen really closely

To hear the music in the silence.

But, once you hear it,

Your heart will never forget its song.

Trust In Him

August 15, 2014

\darkness

I look out my window

Yet see nothing.

Darkness has consumed . . .

but, wait!

Have things really changed?

Is the grass no longer green?

. . . the trees no longer tall?

Will the sun I cannot see

Truly never shine again?

My soul,

Though wrestling fear’s attempt to overtake

Is opting instead for some needed rest.

Day has gone

And night indeed has fallen.

Morning’s sun will

Like my spirit rise

And I restored,

Once again will follow

and reflect the Light!
