LIFE IS GOOD!

I climbed up a tree.

Just one bird was welcoming.

Truly a great start!

Branch Out!

June 11, 2019

If a tree were to resist

shedding her colorful autumn leaves,

when would come spring?

When would come summer?

If we resist change

we cannot question why

we do not grow.

Do not choose death – choose life!

CREATED WITH A SPECIAL PURPOSE!

June 10, 2019

Perspective

A wee one picked a pretty flower

and gave it to her Mom.

Everyone around her smiled with joy.

She grew older and was taught

a dandelion was “just a weed”

but did the flower really change

when the eyes of her heart

were closed?

She grew up

and made them into

such delicious wine!

How eye opening!

WELCOME BLESSINGS OF SPRING!

HAPPY SPRING


REFRESHED AND BLESSED

March 25, 2019

A lovely late spring day

promises a bit of refreshment

from sniffing and sneezing.

As I smile with unspoken joy

reflecting heavenward

from my appreciative smile

I feel a gentle breeze tickle me!

I find that a leaf laden branch from my tree

happily waves its many new leaves to its Maker

as it shares my joy

and springs into new life!

CAROLINA GIRL

October 22, 2018

Woke up this morning

and winter came to call.

Got up to brew my coffee

and suddenly it was Fall!

Sunny Summer afternoon,

by night fall Spring came back

wouldn’t  ya know it came back

with an allergy attack!
