THE CHOICE

May 24, 2016

The sun rises each morning.

Whether or not I choose

to look up and

let it warm my soul

is entirely up to me!

When We Wait

May 21, 2016

 

I heard you sing.

Twas more a plaintive cry.

The sun dipped behind a cloud at the tone,

But,

Still you sang on.

Suddenly,

A second voice joined in

And her high pitched joy

Made for a beautiful duet!

Walking with God will open more doors than we could ever imagine.”

GET REAL!

your love is like

Sights and Scents of Love

“Ew”  someone said,

but it was not me.

For I had learned

the greatest love

doesn’t smell like flowers!

What does love really look like? I’ve seen it in a man who has sweat dripping from his face, his hair and a wrinkled tee shirt,  all because he mowed and raked my lawn on a hot SC summer day last year.  I have seen it in the empty wallet of someone who spent their last buying a gift to lift my grieving spirits.  I’ve seen it in the grubby sneakers of an  overworked priest who gave up some of his little free-time on his day off to visit me when I was in crisis.   I could go on and will in a  longer feature coming soon, but I noticed that these eyes of mine must surely be blind for missing the most poignant images of love  and not one item in this post speaks of sex or body shape or . . . reality is so much better than what is pictured on magazine covers!  LOOK FOR IT!


AH, MONDAY!

NEVER underestimate

the power of His love!
