Plant a mustard seed.

Simple, often overlooked

Yet richly provides.

FROM CHANGE COME UNEXPECTED BLESSINGS

January 7, 2019

How blue is the sky

and how bright the sun!

Winter’s warm smile

brings unexpected joy

on this mid-season day!

Tomorrow’s cold air

won’t be so biting

after this early taste of Spring!

I complain?  NOT!

For the four seasons bless me;

each in a new and unique way.

I bask in the opportunities

each one brings!

My Father

November 6, 2018

My residence – so disappointing,

there was nothing I could do.

I was ready to give up

but then my Father spoke to me.

He started with the woodwork,

old ceilings to bad floors.

He renovated tattered walls

and then the windows had to go!

He worked hard day and night . . .

took up residence right there.

Instead of leaving in the night,

His love did me repair.

I learned  so very much from Him!

Soon everything was new!

I want to be so much like Him,

giving blessings in His name!

BLESSINGS! NEVER FAR AWAY

October 12, 2018

 

coffee

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!

THE GIFT

Finally sunshine!

I step out into the cold and see

a rose withstood the frost!

LOOK BEYOND!

The sky is so large

Yet we often see just clouds

He gave so much more

REFLECTED BLESSINGS!

June 28, 2017

We cannot have shadows in the darkness.

So, if you see one on a rainy day,

and you cannot find the sun,

that sunny brightness

MUST be reflected from you!

You are blessed!

Be a blessing to others!
