DANCING IN THE REIGN

August 1, 2017

I heard

the applause of many angels

reign down on a dance floor

glowing

with the stars in gentlemen’s eyes

as the ladies danced in satin gowns

and their best diamonds!

No other light was needed.

Surrender

gate

What is that glow

which lies beyond the gate?

Two steps away,

it beckons.

Dare I enter?

JESUS WEPT- SO CAN WE

Cry

Tears are like refreshing rain

Restoring the parched land of the soul

And welcoming new life.

WHAT SPARKS YOUR FLAME?

Fueled By . . .

If

Peace and passion

Do not travel hand in hand

All growth,

Perhaps even life itself

Comes to a halt.

MOST TREASURED GIFT – FAITH

A distant rumble

cannot darken my delight

in nature’s beauty

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!


HE CAME TO MY DOOR AND KNOCKED!

I am called to soar

Broken wings cannot stop me

He enables me

BE, THOU, LIKE THE CHILD

OH, those meddlesome weeds,

she said.

But to the child

all was beauty!

As the breeze

blew through my soul

I picked a yellow dandelion

and smiled!

And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:2-4 ESV)
