CLAY IN HIS HANDS

July 29, 2019

A pot made of clay

by skilled hands . . .

we, too, are thus made

by the Creator God’s hands.

So many types of clay,

so many types of pots,

the Lord GOD lovingly made us all.

They come in different colors, strengths,

yet,

all have value,

all made with equal amounts of love.

Sadly, more importance is placed

on global warming,

than human life.

News broadcasted multi times daily

speaks more of “another” shooting.

than a “tragic” one.

Is there a right or wrong side of the street??

a right or wrong skin color??

We were created with immeasurable love, all of us.

Will we ever put the guns down?

YOU CANNOT HIDE

October 22, 2018

No matter how hard a lemon

may try to disguise itself as an apple,

The Gardener will know the truth.

Sprinkling sugar on the surface

will not make sweet that which is not.

WE DECEIVE OURSELVES!

Before we judge and

close our doors and hearts to one another,

we need to remember that

our church buildings would be empty of any but

our Triune God

were it not for

we sinners present!

Why do we have no qualms about missing worship,

yet are so very quick to make the false claim that our prayers go unheard?

Thankfully, we are loved and forgiven!  – Martha LShaw

A HAIKU ON FORGIVENESS

The clouds break apart

dampened grass between my toes

Ah, new beginnings

FILLED WITH YOU

October 21, 2016

Direction – A Poem From My Soul

Your love fills my soul

And your peace

Is like nothing I could imagine.

Yet,

This morning I woke with a start,

I stopped to think

And stumbled off the path.

My fear frozen heart beat too fast

And my mind drew me

In another direction

But not a good one.

I breathed deeply,

I called out to you,

And you showed me the map

Leading me back to you.

The peace in my soul

Softly comforted me.

I smiled

Ready for a new day

Filled with wonder,

Filled with you.

DOES IT REALLY MATTER? NO!

August 1, 2016

An apology is NOT giving up nor giving in.  It is a statement that the relationship is more important than who was right or who was wrong.

 

 

Often, sadly, the bickering continues long after the cause of it is forgotten.  Please don’t let this happen!
