FOREVER HEARTS

January 15, 2019

 

For Bobby and  Kim

A smile,

A kind word,

Soon becomes a hug and kiss.

Rain and sun . . .

Love planted by the Mighty Gardener

Grows into such beauty.

Forever comes so quickly

To the one who is left behind.

But no, sweet one!

It lasts for eternity.

Broken hearts become stronger

For being such giving hearts . . .

For ”Giving Hearts”know no limits!

HOPE’S MORNING RAYS

December 6, 2018

The house is quiet.

It is early morning

And the moon is handing the reins to the sun.

The illusion of darkness fades

As the breath of a new day

Fills my heart and soul.

“Good Morning” Hope seems to say.

I rise.

sees the sun behind the cloud,

the face beneath the mask

and reveals their splendor

THE SECOND VERSE

July 2, 2018

Oh darkness,

you cannot hide

my seemingly elusive joy.

For,

in my heart exists the Lamp

to guide me to it

So I will sing on!

Beauty in a storm

when I do not look in fear

sun peeks through the clouds

 

Glistening raindrops

Quenching the thirsty dry land.

Grace and hope are mine!

MOST TREASURED GIFT – FAITH

A distant rumble

cannot darken my delight

Lily

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 – an ever living reminder of His love!
