sunrays dance along

PATH IN THE WOODS


WE ARE FAMILY!

April 22, 2019

Scrappy and I had lunch in our screened porch amid birds singing, a gentle breeze, blue skies viewed between leaf filled branches and the wonderful sound I love to hear – the sound of a saw cuttng wood! The sound and smell is life giving to me and perfume to my soul! Daddy was so skilled at EVERYTHING since if he didn’t know, he self-taught and worked with perfection. Sadly the last 15 years of his life were spent sedentary due to Parkinsons. Lord, heal me and or show me the way to shine and to make my parents proud for the 3 of us!  We love you and hunger to serve with the treasure you bestowed!

AMEN

April 19, 2019

But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.

1 Corinthians 15:20-22 NIV


I HUNGER FOR THE MUSIC

April 18, 2019

I awakened early,

and all seemed still asleep.

A cup of tea,

a wicker chair,

a sunporch just for me. . .

but I was not alone,

you, too, were there.

I hungered for your music,

heard when we’re alone.

You never disappoint!

I sipped and listened to the gentle breeze

the creaking of the porch door,

the singing of a bird high in the tree.

Soon I heard the tinkling of tiny tear drops

of moving water in the rivulet nearby

and they mirrored myown

tears of thankfulness and joy.

Soon the day would grow busy

and the gentle sounds of your gifts,

your voice,

would be lost in the confusion

and distress.

But in the din I will close my eyes

for just a moment

so that once more

I can hear your music.

It is well.

THINK ABOUT IT

April 13, 2019

Read …Recite …Relationship

Pray,

It should mean something.

It does, doesn’t it?

When we’re finished, we sing and leave!

But . . .

I don’t need to read the book,

I can easily recite.

That counts, right?

Even if I forget the words?

Does it mean something?

How will He know what I said

if I don’t . . .

I’d rather have

A relationship with Him

using my own words

from my heart.

It matters to me

and to Him.

THE CONCERT

April 11, 2019

I closed my eyes,

listened to the music,

and knew it came from You!

My drab day brightened

as the gray mist washed away

by the waves of color

drifted about my heart and soul.

Anxiety was quickly forgotten.

Hope’s brightness easily replaced it

like a love song . . .

while violyn kissed piano

and my soul drifted joyfully

in a dance that will never end.

I AM WITH YOU!

My mind was full of noise;

and manufactured worry that would not go away!

So despite my hesitation

I chose to sit a while.

I knew it was a lovely day

but couldn’t take it in.

I worried that I needed to . . .

oh, if only!

YES, BUT . . .Oh, but I can’t!

oh, but everybody else . . .

“Child. . . ”

“CHILD!!!!” still louder,

Seeing noone,

I was certain of trouble,

but then I heard

“I AM!

my gaze was toward the ripples

I simply did not see

as my anxiety grew.

“Child, I AM called you here to spend an hour with me!

Lay aside your worries!  Give them to me!”

I felt His embrace and finaly I knew!

I gazed at the small waves

gently flowing by

and the droplets were like my tears

BUT I DID NOT KNOW I CRIED.

“Now lay those worries down and leave them for me! . . .

Trust them to me, then sit quietly and know the

strength and intimacy of my love for you!

It is living in your heart,

as am I!”

A gente kiss and I closed my eyes

and knew!

He will ALWAYS give me

everything I need!
