DON’T HATE MONDAY!

August 27, 2018

Tee shirt vendors got it wrong!  God gave us a new day . . . let’s be hopeful . . . thankful even!  Attitude matters!

I awakened to a quiet house.

It was very early

and the only noise was

the soft sound of my dog asleep nearby.

Sensing my gaze,

she stumbled out of bed and followed me.

I sit sipping my first cup of coffee

and breathe in the peaceful soft sounds of the new day.

I don’t know what the day brings

but I know who brought it.

That is sufficient.

YOUR VALUES

There is an argument about whether one person’s insulted over $1,000 because another received $1,000,000. As I considered how HUGELY I’d appreciate 1,000 or 100.00 . . . I saw a face light up over the loaf of bread I baked him . . .lives have been changed over a loaf or a fish. – Martha L Shaw ©2018 words and image

The sky is so large

Yet we often see just clouds

He gave so much more

My soul is raining!

Stubborn sun, why must you shine?

Tears refresh the joy.

For the Light costumd by darkness,

I thank you, Lord.

For the beauty I know but cannot see,

I thank you, Lord.

For the music I cannot hear yet still I dance

And thank you, Lord.

For your secret healing of my every need,

I thank you, Lord.

For living in this broken human’s heart,

I thank you, Lord.

For using me anyway,

All my love and thanks and praise to you.

Amen

Tears of Joy

I sit at the water’s edge

hearing the music of the droplets

tumbling over the rocks at the shore . . .

sounds of strength and hope.

He weaves my dreams

Together with His own

And the result

Is far greater

Than anything I could imagine!

GRACE AND GRATITUDE

It need not take devastation to awaken us to the beauty we’re surrounded with, but sadly that is so often the case! – Martha L Shaw

DO YOU SEE SILVER LININGS? I DO!

January 20, 2017

When I was a child, I loved laying in the grass looking up at the sky . . . I thought of who else, in some distant place, might be sharing it with me.  Birds flew about tweeting and I wondered what they said..  When clouds came in, I thought not of potential storms but of the interesting shapes . . . “that one looks like a bear!”  Even when it rained, I loved watching the droplets bounce off surfaces looking like tiny mirrors reflecting a world that fascinated me.

Clouds over my head

Whisper opportunity

Gentle wisps of change
