LOVE IS GREATER

May 25, 2016

They pointed and shook their heads.

“Not a grain of common sense,” they said.

Still she moved ahead.

“What is she thinking?”

She followed the path.

They called her names,

but it did not sway her.

Throwing things at her did nothing

to change her mind.

EXHAUSTION,

heat,

hunger,

threats. . .

loss of friends,

still she answered the same way.

“Follow me!” He’d invited.

Eagerly, she did.

THE CHOICE

May 24, 2016

The sun rises each morning.

Whether or not I choose

to look up and

let it warm my soul

is entirely up to me!

YOUR LOVE

Surely

I am floating

high above the clouds

where the air is light

and the sky is ALWAYS blue . . .

No,

this is not a dream!

You really DO love me!

When We Wait

May 21, 2016

 

I heard you sing.

Twas more a plaintive cry.

The sun dipped behind a cloud at the tone,

But,

Still you sang on.

Suddenly,

A second voice joined in

And her high pitched joy

Made for a beautiful duet!

Walking with God will open more doors than we could ever imagine.”
