NEW YEAR – NEW BLESSINGS

December 29, 2018

Among Weeds and Thorns

Digital Camera

When the garden is filled with weeds

Yet one stubborn flower

Finds the strength to grow,

Am I to frown

Because it is the only one?

Is it not a very welcomed blessing?

Surely its beauty

Nourishes my hungry soul

Giving me the strength

To tackle the overgrowth

Of opposition

Not unlike the single

Blooming rose

Basking in the midst

Of thorns;

Hope

Of a coming new season!

Following the star

The magi leave one union

To find another.

How Can I Do Christmas When . .

. . . this is all I have to give?

broken hearted

 

It’s the best gift of all!  


Lord, You Called?

What can I do for you?

Love to!

I’ll get right on it!

My heart races.

Insecurity sets in.

Wow!

He asked me!

WELL. . .

I’m working on it, Lord!

ME?

Panting . . .

Forgetting to breathe.

How can I?

BUT . . . What if

Gasping for breath.

Why does my head ache?

Sitting quiet for a moment.

I hear His voice  in my heart

my soul.

Slow deep breaths . . .

“Peace child!

You are my servant!

I will lead you.

Just follow and

TRUST ME!”

Happy tears.

HIS CARESS

Is it just the breeze

Or the brush of angel’s wings

Which refresh my soul

And bring me such peace?
