MY HEART LEAPED!

October 15, 2018

Oh how splendid it is to see

the brightness of the sun

after a long and stormy season.

But, like Job,

I, too, have suffered,

loss,

pain,

heartbreak,

confusion . . .

and then all that went away

and my eyes were blinded

for a time

by the brilliance that is you.

My heart and soul

leapt within me

for I knew it was you!

The glory of the Lord

had come

and my life would never be the same!

REST IN HIM

October 13, 2018

When I was a child,

I was more curious

than fearful of the

scary” monsters lurking under the bed.

No, not me . . .

What would scare me,

and break my heart

would be to have to live

one day . . . or one second

without your mighty presense

and your amazing love!

BLESSINGS! NEVER FAR AWAY

Ah,

My screened porch,

You,

me,

coffee,

my puppy . . .

Glorious autumn weather

does not betray 

the stormy, rainy days

that now have passed us by.

They are simply replaced by blessings!

AGAPE

October 9, 2018

Here I am awake;

alone on a moonlit night.

I hunger for love

and then unseen arms hold me.

Ah, your ever present love!

UNWRAPPED

October 6, 2018

Ah,

the lovely Autumn leaves

clothe my tree

in loveliness!

Suddenly,

barren branches for a time.

Sigh . . .

As the dry, now colorless leaves

await raking

and burning

I scratch my head

and wonder why such beauty

contained for a season

in those deciduous leaves

had to fall??

Then,

I am reminded!

Like that tree,

I too have seasons

for which God has a plan!

As the leaves fall,

new ones

will come along in due season

with more strength

and beauty than before!
