DEFINING LOVE

May 8, 2017

They gave Him bitter wine to drink

and He took it

so that we might have

that which was sweet.

A HAIKU ON FORGIVENESS

The clouds break apart

dampened grass between my toes

Ah, new beginnings

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.

ARE YOU A THIEF?

April 3, 2017

Treasure Hunt

We search high and low,

seeing everything

and finding nothing.

Frowning becomes moaning

as we steal the joy from other hearts

and toss it away in disgust.

The challenge will never be met

lest we realize the Truth.

What we seek is already within us!
