Gift of a New Day

sunny day

It’s been raining long and hard

And gray skies were all I could see.

But today is different,

Or perhaps I am,

For I see a bright spot

Glowing through the

Clouds of morning.

I shall dance!

Dancing with the raindrops

And celebrating the sun

Am I

For today is

A new day

And the Lord has blessed it!

DON’T MISS OUT!

Poetry

and beauty

are everywhere!

They travel hand in hand . . .

To live

with open eyes and open hearts

is all we require!

It’s your choice!

IMAGE OF GOD

I stand on the shore.

Low tide twinkles like diamonds!

When the time is right,

The tide comes in – high, mighty . . .

Yet beautiful just the same!

PLANT THE SEEDS OF LOVE

We are unique!

This was no accident!

How could the garden be

nearly so beautiful

if the Gardener planted

only one type of seed!
