LIKE THE MOTHER BIRD

October 17, 2018

Just as a mother bird broods 

to protect her young . . .

giving them warmth,

safety,

covered with her love,

and when the time comes

sets them free

to do as they were created to do . . .

so, too, does our Creator God

love and protect us

in the shelter of His wings.

We may not see Him,

but His love, power, and grace

are with us always.

REST IN HIM

October 13, 2018

When I was a child,

I was more curious

than fearful of the

scary” monsters lurking under the bed.

No, not me . . .

What would scare me,

and break my heart

would be to have to live

one day . . . or one second

without your mighty presense

and your amazing love!

IMPATIENT FOR GRACE

October 2, 2018

I was certain the day was coming!

But kept waking up without

feeling deflated

for a gift belated.

Would it never come at all?

A few days . . .

months . . .

years . . .

then it happened “overnight!”

My gift of grace,

more than I ever dreamed of

and surely did not deserve

came to me

at just the right time!

I am forever thankful!

BE A BELIEVER!

August 26, 2018

We are human!  We fall short, we grow impatient, we begin to consider “what if . . .”  Take it to the Lordand be washed in His grace and know His amazing love!

Hope NOT Misspent

 

The clouds lingered long.

Will the light never return?

The dampness of my tears,

The ache in my limbs,

The longing for something more . . .

All forgotten in an instant

As my gaze found the sun!

HIS BREATH- HIS HEART

 

Gentle breeze or strong wind

I am given what I NEED

Refreshed, reborn, led

THE LISTENING HEART

Sacred music plays

Yet others fail to listen

Oh my soul dances
