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.

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!

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?

July 3, 2017

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!
