Pray Without Ceasing

October 1, 2014

Here I sit

working at my desk.

The windows are open.

The sun smiles down on me still

while the breeze gently tickles me

and the birds sing as they build their nest.

Like me,

they too are blessed!

Hope NOT Misspent

September 30, 2014


The clouds lingered long.

Will the light never return?

The dampness of my tears,

The ache in my limbs,

The longing for something more . . .

All forgotten in an instant

As my gaze found the sun!

We are healed by what we are . . .

what we were made to be.

The preacher must preach,

the singer must make her music,

the writer must write.

Death is in the denial

but life is in the acceptance . . .

My Birthright

I live in hope of the Light,

Therefore, it is mine.

The illusion of darkness

Is no more!

Droplets of water

Falling, falling, from the sky

You nourish dry ground

and provide restoration!

New life, new hope – praise, rejoice!

In our quiet place

Are a symphony.
