DID I MISS SOMETHING?

December 21, 2017

It is NOT miraculous

that God loves us.

The miracle is our realization of His love

and our eagerness

to return and to share it!

THE GIFT OF THE JOURNEY

December 20, 2017

I heard the sweet sound of a bird

calling out from a high branch.

No answer,

he didn’t give up.

He showed no anger.

He listened . . .

he called again.

He sang.

He enjoyed his perch,

then called again

and waited some more.

He performed daily tasks while waiting.

The cycle repeated.

THEN,

the right time came

and he got the Word .. .

He sang with such joy!

Love is patient.

Love never fails!

Love is eternal.

His Garden

December 14, 2017

The gate was open.

I could feel the gentle breeze beckoning me.

I heard the choir sing.

Were they birds or angels . . .

it mattered not.

The beauty of His grace at once

brought me rest and excited me!

I stepped inside . . .

BROKEN YET BLESSED

November 6, 2017

A broken dish

having fallen to its demise

was never to hold treasure again.

Not so,

the pieces of my broken heart,

held in His hands

mended

healed

expanded

returned to me

with His grace.

LOOK BEYOND!

September 22, 2017

The sky is so large

Yet we often see just clouds

He gave so much more

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.

YES! I FOLLOWED!

July 22, 2017

Surrender

gate

What is that glow

which lies beyond the gate?

Two steps away,

it beckons.

Dare I enter?
