HERE COMES THE SUN!February 19, 2019
As I rolled over
preparing for the new day,
and also avoiding it . ..
I got up anyway.
Deep breaths . . .
surrender . . .
but I MUST . ..
What if . . .
I stepped out on the back porch.
The birds sang so beautifully
without any consideration
for the grey sky
or cold February wind.
I took no notice either!
The Master artist,
looking at all my broken pieces,
DID’T see the mess
reflected in my mirror!
He saw His own likeness
and all at once I did as well,
and I shall follow Him always!

AN UNEXPECTED GIFT!February 11, 2019
When The Storm Passes . . .
The threat of a storm lasted long, but now that the storm is over it seems as though it was quite brief. How often do we find this to be true? After it has gone, the beauty in its wake seems brighter than ever before . . .
Here are some photographs taken after other storms have gone. It seems there is a message in their beauty.
29 He stilled the storm to a whisper;
the waves of the sea[a] were hushed. – Psalm 107:29
WHAT IS FAITH?February 7, 2019
HE WILL NEVER LEAVE ME
I am touched by the rays
Of a sun I cannot see.
Still, I am changed.
