Finding Love

May 11, 2017

I primped and perfected

or so I thought

but felt nothing.

I floated in an ocean of if only

and why not

as the waves grew higher

and brought me down.

You reached out,

you lifted me up,

you loved me.

You saw your beloved

absent of all those doubts

and insecurities.

The waters stilled

and as I looked at my reflection in them

I saw you.

In His Image

May 10, 2017

In the quiet

I felt your arms around me.

I smiled.

I sighed.

I knew your breath,

So close to me,

Was filling my lungs

And giving me strength

To grow . . . to go on.

I was in you.

You were in me.

FEEDING TIME

When your life is a circus, do NOT forget to smile

and be sure to feed the animals!

have you herd

Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.


HOW’D I MISS IT?

April 23, 2017

I was on an avid search for peace!

I turned every stone,

and opened each door!

After miles of running, running, calling out,

I simply had to stop and rest.

It was then I found it!

A HAIKU ON FORGIVENESS

The clouds break apart

dampened grass between my toes

Ah, new beginnings

THE GREAT WEAVER

April 12, 2017

Tapestry

]

He weaves my dreams

Together with His own

And the result

Is far greater

Than anything I could imagine!
