Poems and Flowers

Poems From Psalms And Nature

I wonder how many poems
the trees have given to me
as I pray the Psalms
and read poems by poets
written over so much time
that passes too soon

clouds with some blue
outside my study window
some days God seems so clear
other days I must dwell more deeply
in my reading of the Psalms

praying the Psalms . . .
other times and places
cross my mind
and I am blessed
by God’s love
and care
once again

Thy statutes have been my songs
in the house of my pilgrimage.

Psalm 119: 54 (KJV)

And So My Soul

August 10, 2019

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

I wrote this poem in 1981. It was first published byTime Of Singingin 1991.

AND SO MY SOUL

And so my soul
Spills over
Into print again
As the sun spills
Over flowers
And the neighborhood
Sleeps

Endurance is eloquent
And marigolds are
Admirable because
They bloom
So long

Oh, my heart
Is tender
Yet God keeps it
Strong
And so my soul
Spills over
Into print again

IT’S NEVER ME!

August 10, 2019

Why is the shepherd running ahead?

Does He not care?

Where are my caring friends?

Again,

nobody wants me!

“My child.

I Am ahead of you preparing the way!”

They quietly discussed His purpose,

though the child wondered.

Hearing and seeing many behind the two,

she asked the Lord

“What are they doing?”

“My child, they are fasting while providing prayer support!”

She knelt at His feet.

INVITE HIM FOR COFFEE

Prayerful Thoughts Over Morning Coffee

For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord. Psalm 117:1-2

CLAY IN HIS HANDS

July 29, 2019

A pot made of clay

by skilled hands . . .

we, too, are thus made

by the Creator God’s hands.

So many types of clay,

so many types of pots,

the Lord GOD lovingly made us all.

They come in different colors, strengths,

yet,

all have value,

all made with equal amounts of love.

Sadly, more importance is placed

on global warming,

than human life.

News broadcasted multi times daily

speaks more of “another” shooting.

than a “tragic” one.

Is there a right or wrong side of the street??

a right or wrong skin color??

We were created with immeasurable love, all of us.

Will we ever put the guns down?
