The sun is shining

on old dusty memories

while the birds sing praise

WITHOUT EVEN A DRUM . . .

January 2, 2019

Christmas and other special holidays send us into such a tailspin! 

  • We spend money we don’t have
  • load up on food we don’t need or want
  • we lose sleep
  • we are never satisfied with our results
  • nothing seems ever enough
  • we’re anxious for it to be over

The gift . . . the best gift . . . the only one that truly touches hearts and changes lives . . . did not and cannot be tucked in a box.  It can be given, be shared, it never runs out, is never the wrong size or color, it doesn’t make you fat nor require words.

It was and is and always will be LOVE.

We can share it daily!

WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!

Life becomes far less eerie

when I recall who holds my hand 

and heart!

UNWRAPPED

October 6, 2018

Ah,

the lovely Autumn leaves

clothe my tree

in loveliness!

Suddenly,

barren branches for a time.

Sigh . . .

As the dry, now colorless leaves

await raking

and burning

I scratch my head

and wonder why such beauty

contained for a season

in those deciduous leaves

had to fall??

Then,

I am reminded!

Like that tree,

I too have seasons

for which God has a plan!

As the leaves fall,

new ones

will come along in due season

with more strength

and beauty than before!

WHAT DOES YOUR HEART SEE?

Whether you stand in the shade,

Or in the sun,

Is not the tree still beautiful?
