THE VIOLIN

July 31, 2018

It began . . .

An ordinary day.

Then

I heard the sounds of peace and passion.

A duet that at once caught my breath

while also wrapping me in streams of gold.

My heart . ..my soul

Were fed as never before.

Should I dance or cry or laugh

Or indulge

In a banquet

Of all three

and more.

Music so sweet and gentle

Then suddenly it grew in magnitude

And repainted the landscape.

A love

Indescribable

Wrapped in a bow.

Gift of a New Day

July 31, 2018
sunny day

By Martha L Shaw – © 2018

 

It’s been raining long and hard

And gray skies were all I could see.

But today is different,

Or perhaps I am,

For I see a bright spot

Glowing through the

Clouds of morning.

I shall dance!

Dancing with the raindrops

And celebrating the sun

Am I

For today is

A new day

And the Lord has blessed it!

LISTEN TO YOUR HEART

July 30, 2018

I awakened

just before the sun.

My thoughts wandered,

as they so often do,

to the anticipated drama of my day,

then . . . ‘I heard the whispered sounds of your restful slumber

and felt the warmth of your love against me.

Just as quickly as they came

my worries slipped away.

All I could see,

all I could hear,

all I could feel

was my love for you

and how very blessed I am to know

you are mine!

Took a shaking step . . .

faith overcomes fear . . .
