All life is poetry!

If we let it,

Sad becomes glad

And glad releases

Heaven’s tears of endless joy!

When We Call

Falling Not Failing

October 28, 2015

Pushing forward getting nowhere,

I fall.

A new vantage point!

I look up and you are there!

This changed everything!

You Are ALWAYS With Me

Direction – A Poem From My Soul

Your love fills my soul

And your peace

Is like nothing I could imagine.


This morning I woke with a start,

I stopped to think

And stumbled off the path.

My fear frozen heart beat too fast

And my mind drew me

In another direction

But not a good one.

I breathed deeply,

I called out to you,

And you showed me the map

Leading me back to you.

The peace in my soul

Softly comforted me.

I smiled

Ready for a new day

Filled with wonder,

Filled with you.

The Last Sunflowers of the Season

October 27, 2015


Hi Lovelies,

I was certainly cutting it close on today’s post. Currently, I’m cleaning up a giant mess of a flooded basement. Since I’ve got a lot of mopping to do, I thought I would show you some of the last sunflowers that were picked. I planted the seeds rather late, around August 10th – and they certainly were racing the clock! Luckily, some of them did make it before the frost. I hope you enjoy! I’ll be back tomorrow in full swing, ready to finish Blog-tober!

I fell to my knees

In the darkened space

With no sound but my own breath

But still

My soul heard your voice

And by the light of a single candle

I found The Way

falling leaves 2

He raked all the leaves

Smiling he raked again

After I dove in.

Dry crackling twigs

Scents of a nearby bonfire

Memories of Dad.
