Waiting In Hope

God speaks to me 2

Where is the sun?

The sky is angry and dark

With clouds overtaking my world.

The sweet music I crave

Has been drowned out by

Clashing and rumbling.

Will the glow . . .

The warmth return?


For, you see, it has not truly left at all.

It is merely shielded from view

And will smile again soon.

LOVE the way He loves me!

Are You Hungry?

May 23, 2014

Me:  “Man, am I hungry!”

Jesus: “Here, have some carrots”

Me:  “Man, am I hungry!”

Jesus: “Here, have some carrots”

Me:  “Man, am I hungry!”

Jesus: “Here, have some carrots”

Me:  “Man, am I hungry!”

Jesus: “Here, have some carrots”

 Me:    Stomach growling and finally noticing Him there “no, I wanted broccoli!”


We do this to Jesus ALL the time!

Perhaps, and yet . .  .

A rake,

A hoe,

A change of focus,

And new buds and blossoms appear .  . .

Or perhaps they lay in wait all along.

Beyond the shadows shines the blazing sun!

That kinda means I haven’t planned this…so…

2014 has been difficult.  I guess I should probably expect this since I am aging…but more people I know and care about are passing away. And, maybe it’s just me but at a younger age.  I could get all political on ya, and start blaming the government for backing a poisoning giant like Monsanto but let’s not obscure the facts here.  I’m not even 51 yet (a few weeks…so, cut me some slack) and I’ve lost a friend who was younger than I am AND a friend’s husband just passed who was 50 (he’s the gentleman in my FB profile picture).

As I get older (yes, I admit it), I struggle with facing up to the fact that I was created for a purpose and I should be living into that purpose.  God created me, put me on this earth, shaped me, formed…
