HOW’D I MISS IT?

April 23, 2017

I was on an avid search for peace!

I turned every stone,

and opened each door!

After miles of running, running, calling out,

I simply had to stop and rest.

It was then I found it!

BY FAITH ALONE

April 22, 2017

Despite their fragility,

in body and on branch,

the birds sang on

in delicate harmony.

Thunder and lightening,

driving wind and rain

did not change their spirit!

We have much to learn from them!

MORNING GLORY

April 21, 2017

 

Today is nothing special . . .

I have no particular plan.

I woke up feeling joyful

Just because I can.

 

Some will find this rather odd.

I feel sorry for them.

But as for me, I’m praising God!

Glory without end!

A HAIKU ON FORGIVENESS

The clouds break apart

dampened grass between my toes

Ah, new beginnings

BUT WE ARE SAVED – SOAR!

April 17, 2017

The sad little bird,

caged for so long,

hopelessly yearned to fly.

One day,

the cage door was open!

But still he stayed inside,

not knowing what it was

to be free!

HIS FOUR FOOTED SERVANTS

Or WHY God Made Dogs!

A run through unmowed grass tickles the belly!

Peering eye-to-eye with a gecko is so much fun!

Nothing refreshes like a leap into a big puddle after a Spring rain!

There is no trouble in life which cannot be lightened

by a paw on your shoulder

and warm puppy kisses!
