SOMETIMES “NOTHING” IS EVERYTHING

April 12, 2017

I wanted to  give the right gift,

the perfect one.

I had little money

and few skills.

IT NEEDED TO BE PERFECT!

I grew more and more disappointed.

Eventually,

with tears in my eyes

and empty hands,

I threw myself to the ground

and cried out

“I love you!”

He was pleased.

REFLECTING ON THE CROSS

April 7, 2017

The REAL Joy

reflecting on the crossI enjoy the applause.

Admiration is nice for a time

but,

my lasting joy

is reflecting the Lord in all I AM and do.

I am nothing without His love.

NAILS – An Acrostic

Never had a tree touched my heart.

Acorns, bark, leaves to rake.

It was so ordinary, almost invisible.

Lent’s reminder of my Savior’s love – His blood.

Somehow the tree isn’t just a tree anymore.
