FEELING THE LOVE . . .

December 12, 2017

The old quilt . . .

Its softness is enhanced

By age and use.

Its colors faded by the light of many days,

And its fibers show wear

Yet its beauty is all I see,

All I feel,

And all I know.

Its story is one of patience

And of time and effort.

It  contains both pain and pleasure.

The fabrics of many lives intertwined

To become one . . .

It is not one story,

But rather generations of stories

Shared by the fire,

Told over tea,

Revealed as fine thread

Wove scraps of many lives

Into something too beautiful not to share.

HOPE FOR THE FUTURE

August 30, 2017

Tiny feet

Scampering about,

Carry a wee one

Full of promise!

From such as this

Once was born

A Savior!

Just Dance!

June 15, 2017

just dance

I saw the others in the room

dancing to a tune I could not hear.

I stood aside,

I watched and sighed.

Wishing,

Wondering,

They seemed to share a joy

I didn’t know.

They seemed to know a love

I didn’t feel.

I waited in lonely silence.

Then, I could wait no more.

With awkward steps

I left my hiding place

And followed.

At first my steps

Were slow and few

But then it happened!

I began to hear the music, too!

The more I danced,

The less I considered my shaky feet

For I had found something else.

I discovered joy!

WRATH DOES NOT HEAL WRATH!

BIGGER GUNS ONLY MAKE BIGGER HOLES!

THE ANSWER?

PRAY, LISTEN, FOLLOW!

Say WHAT?

April 28, 2017

A voice from the next room called out in a loud voice “I be knackered!” Quite frankly, I was not sure whether to run for cover or to run for covers!

DE COLORES

. . . because life was not meant to be just black and white!

 Our individuality was meant for blessing, not distressing!

THE REAL PROBLEM!

March 23, 2017

We fix one symptom, pat ourselves on the back, put our feet up, and nap . . . never facing up to the REAL problem.  Why, then, do we complain that “nothing ever changes” and “nobody cares!”
