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!

MANY HANDS

October 1, 2018

One shall prepare the land,

another plants the seed.

More workers pull the weeds.

But only God can send the rain

which makes the harvest grow!

RISE OR FALL

September 6, 2018

Would I ever smile

if the leaves were only green?

Would I feel the sun?

Without changes, can we grow?

God created all things well!

WHAT DOES YOUR HEART SEE?

Whether you stand in the shade,

Or in the sun,

Is not the tree still beautiful?

THE VIOLIN

July 31, 2018

It began . . .

An ordinary day.

Then

I heard the sounds of peace and passion.

A duet that at once caught my breath

while also wrapping me in streams of gold.

My heart . ..my soul

Were fed as never before.

Should I dance or cry or laugh

Or indulge

In a banquet

Of all three

and more.

Music so sweet and gentle

Then suddenly it grew in magnitude

And repainted the landscape.

A love

Indescribable

Wrapped in a bow.

LOVE BEYOND MEASURE

July 24, 2018

Matthew 10:29-31

“Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. “So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
