A new week begins.

Sun is peeking behind clouds.

You are here with me.

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.

The beautiful Autumn leaves

Used to speak of death to me

For as they fell

Bare branches were left in their wake,

But I was wrong.

The colorful carpet formed

Beneath my feet

Prepares for new life to come!

Bare branches await the buds of Spring’s new life!

Death has no place here

For victory is won!

When we love the Lord with a trusting and grateful heart,
we do not just soar . . .
we realize we have already been doing so
without EVER knowing it!

I Am A Marked Woman!

October 21, 2015

When We Call

Marked As Yours

Your arms stretched out,

“it is finished” is what you said,

But for me it had only just begun.

All those years before my birth,

Your hand print of love

Was already on my soul

And eternal life with you was mine

Before my first breath!

Yours is a love without beginning

And without end!
