MORNING GLORY

April 21, 2017

 

Today is nothing special . . .

I have no particular plan.

I woke up feeling joyful

Just because I can.

 

Some will find this rather odd.

I feel sorry for them.

But as for me, I’m praising God!

Glory without end!

Blessings From The Compost Heap

January 11, 2017

I sit here seeing only ruin around me and being unable to climb out of its vastness and praying somehow His purpose in it will come to fruition.   I realize I may not see His purpose but there is peace to be found in knowing He uses all things.  As I did a bit of reading just now, this quote came to me:

All the flowers of tomorrow are the seeds of today.

– Anonymous –

It seems in life there are times when we, or I, are called to be the compost nourishing the seeds from which tomorrow’s flowers grow.  These times can be uncomfortable and even painful, but if it blesses the Lord, it is good.

A new season is coming and the flowers will bloom!

The pieces will all come together.  He will see to it.

The Aroma of Love

January 5, 2017

. . . The Strength of Tenderness

pansy2

The ground is hard beneath my feet,

The air so sharp.

Still I travel

Where you lead

Hoping for a sign.

Stopping for a moment’s rest,

I discover hope’s gentle face

And sweet scent

Beckoning me on.

I smile,

Then rested and restored,

I travel on.
