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.

Suddenly,

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?

HE WILL NEVER LEAVE ME

I am touched by the rays

Of a sun I cannot see.

Still, I am changed.

The quitessential artist

sees the sun behind the cloud,

the face beneath the mask

and reveals their splendor

to the world!
