Attitude of Gratitude

August 23, 2016

Little flower,

petals swaying in the breeze,

bows her  head

as rain comes.

Then she looks to the sun

in joyful thanks!

Your whispers

In our quiet place

Are a symphony.

A NEW MORNING


REIGN VERSUS RAIN

AT ALL TIMES GIVE THANKS

Smiling,

The cloud rained down.

The droplets kissed the dry land.

Refreshed and blessed,

The blades of grass looked heavenward      

And the sun began to shine.

FAITH HARVESTED

August 22, 2016

The clouds lingered long.

Will the light never return?

The dampness of my tears,

The ache in my limbs,

The longing for something more . . .

All forgotten in an instant

As my gaze found the sun!

DON’T LET FEAR BLIND YOU!

August 21, 2016

How often do we fear facing the wolf

only to discover when it reaches us

that there is no wolf

and never was!

Approaching us was just a sweet puppy dog!

HOPE OVER FEAR

mood glow

If I close my eyes,

fearing the angry looking cloud,

I shall miss the brightness of the sun

and the calmness of the glowing moon!

I AM HIS VESSEL

August 17, 2016

 

It is not through the efforts

Of my bread pan

That today’s loaves are ready

And others will be fed.
