Blessed quiet morning.

They say it will be chilly.

Your love keeps me warm!

I stepped into my quiet place,

My favorite retreat.

The leaves still whispered in the breeze.

The birds still sang softly in the trees.

I gaze up at the blue sky,

enjoying their music.

My soul rejoices.

For this is not a place for silence.

It is the place where my soul

Can truly hear!

Empty words

can never compare to the symphony

of two hearts

joined in silence.

Quote of the Day – Devotion

January 10, 2013

“Listening to language, feeling stories unfold and poems arrive, being present to the page — I do not think of it as a career, I think of it as a devotion.”

Devotion to God

January 3, 2012

“For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God,” Titus 2:11-12 NLT

What a way to bring in the new year!  This passage does not mean we can’t have fun.  It doesn’t mean we’re to be perfect.  We aren’t able to be that – only the Lord Himself is.  It urges us to strive for Godly living and reminds us of His grace and love.  What a gift!  Surely one which you wouldn’t want to stand in line and return?
