Freedom Found

July 3, 2015

I see the bird which flies above

but that eagle is not me.

For my freedom only came

upon my surrender to Thee.

Quiet Time

July 1, 2015

I sit in silence

as a gentle breeze refreshes me

and brings me new life.

Your love’s quiet strength

restores me like none other.

I am yours.

A wee one picked a pretty flower

and gave it to her Mom.

Everyone around her smiled with joy.

She grew older and was taught

a dandelion was “just a weed”

but did the flower really change

when the eyes of her heart

were closed?

She grew up

and made them into

such delicious wine!

How eye opening!

Beauty in a storm

when I do not look in fear

sun peeks through the clouds

Can I get an AMEN?

June 10, 2015

Not sure how it is where you are, but where I am the rumble of distant thunder today was overtaken by sunshine. ONCE AGAIN the darkness could NOT overtake the Light! Amen! – Martha L Shaw

A distant rumble

cannot darken my delight

in nature’s beauty

When I got my first home, knowing nothing of gardening, I was amazed when the neglected yard suddenly come spring had lilies in bloom!  When I relocated some years later filled with hopes and dreams, I also faced many unexpected challenges. I still do. Come spring though, I was again surprised by lilies!  I still know nothing about gardening, but I know my Savior’s redeeming love.  I saw it that day in the lilies He gave to me! The lilies bloomed again today!
