FOOLISH HUMANS!

July 10, 2019

If I was passed a glass of poison to drink, I would destroy it – not drink it.  God would urge me to.  He loves me.

Oh, the hug He gives!

Why then, when anxiety plagues me in so many painful ways, do I hold onto it and make myself sick?  Lose my joy?  Perhaps cause others to follow this wrong path with me?

Turn to Him, ask for help, turn it over!

 

DO NOT PICK IT BACK UP!

THE CHOICE

March 3, 2019

The voice of change,

of peace,

of growth,

of renewal

comes in a whisper.

We must make the choice to listen.

IT’S YOUR CHOICE

August 20, 2018

The day began with birds singing

A wakeup melody of praise.

I joined them in spirit

With words of my own

Then proceeded on with my day.

Smiling,

I made coffee

And fed my body

As my soul had been,

And smiled still.

There is turmoil all around me

And though I try

I cannot change it all

But I do not have to let it change me.

Sing  . . .

Smile . . .

Praise . .  .

I choose joy.

DON’T MISS OUT!

Poetry

and beauty

are everywhere!

They travel hand in hand . . .

To live

with open eyes and open hearts

is all we require!

It’s your choice!

YOUR CHOICE!

May 19, 2017

Day three . . . will the rain EVER stop?

My mood was falling like the steady drops of rain

So I stepped outside.

I looked up at the clouds

Intending to share

a piece of my mind!

Instead,

The cooling, cleansing drops had their way

And I laughed

Then pounced in the nearest puddle!

I was young again!

I CHOOSE JOY! JOIN ME?

My Choice

Thunderous applause

reaches me from the sky.

Some call it a storm

but I call it joy

in the wonders yet to come!
